Improve Your Player’s Speed with the “Sandwich Drill!”

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Eric Markovcy, Lehigh University Head Strength and Conditioning Coach, focuses on individual player development to become better lacrosse players. This drill is intended to train the players to put their bodies in a position to be explosive and to keep their feet under them.

Sandwich Drill

Athlete Movement:  The players begin five yards back from three middle cones. The three cones are separated from each other by about two yards. On the coach’s command they will run to the assigned cone, most importantly without taking a false step. The athlete has to be sure to initiate the direction with the correct foot so as not to get their feet crossed up. Once the command is given, the player is to take a high step with the directionally appropriate foot, rather than to take a false step.

A variation of this drill can be done with two players that are about 10-15 yards away, but facing each other. One athlete is the offensive player and the other athlete is the defensive player. Whichever cone the offensive player sprints to, the defender has to get to by ensuring to initiate his first step appropriately.

Teaching Points: Coach Markovcy makes the point that in a drill like this with an element of competition, form sometimes disappears. The players must focus on using the proper technique in the competitive environment.
