Conditioning Exercise to Improve Speed and Body Positioning!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, January 14, 2014

The Duke University Men’s Lacrosse coaching staff runs their players through a ‘Turn & Sprint Drill.’ This exercise focuses on training players to open up their hips to a direction behind them and “fire off” a line out of a static position. Players will become more confident in their skills to stay with or slide to their opponent.

Turn & Sprint Drill

This involves setting up cones 10 yards apart in a line that is also 10 yards infield from a sideline. As the player is positioned on the sideline between two of the cones, a coach will communicate to the player to go left or right.

Learn an Effective Attacking Drill from 2013 NCAA Champ, Jenny Levy!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Head Coach for the 2013 National Championship UNC Women’s Lacrosse team, Jenny Levy, gives you a great drill for building technique on finding or creating cutting lanes, taking a shot, and learning to take advantage of a defender’s positioning. It teaches players to be aggressive in their attack and to use their vision to find scoring opportunities.

The Fish Hook Drill

A defensive player is optional, as seen in the video, since the focus of the drill is the fish hook motion and the cut. An additional option for the drill is to have the feeder looking for an option to shoot on goal as well.

Catching Basics for Your Youth Lacrosse Players!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Beth Larkin, 2010 New Jersey Coach of the Year, uses the Crosse Trainer to discuss catching basics. She advises players to keep their stick head out in front of the body and above the shoulder. Movement of each player’s feet is also stressed to ensure that they can get to the ball and catch it.

Catching Basics

For youth players, it is recommended that a coach throw balls by hand to players instead of having partners throw passes that may be too fast or inaccurate.

Work on Your Stick Handling with Former Lacrosse Pro, Gary Gait!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, January 14, 2014

In this segment former professional lacrosse player, Gary Gait, demonstrates how to use the body and the free hand to protect the stick from the defender. The body should always be between the stick and the defender.

Dodging/Stick Handling

Gait also suggests using the stick to bait a defender into moving in a particular direction. Once the defender lunges for the “bait,” the ball carrier should quickly change direction to run past the defender.
