Learn from 2015 D-1 National Championship Coach Bill Tierney!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, June 9, 2015

After weeks of hard work and grueling practices, Bill Tierney’s Denver Pioneers captured the 2015 NCAA D-1 National Championship. In this clip, you’ll learn a drill from Coach Tierney that the whole team can use to get better at passing and communicating on the field.

Maze Drill

Drill Summary: This is a drill for the entire team. Set up with lines of at least three players staggered down the length of the field every five yards, on opposite sides. The first player at the front of the first line begins running and throws to the player at the front of the next line on the opposite side of the field. Then, that player runs out and throws to the next line, etc. After throwing, players go to the back of the line they threw to. Players in the last line on the field run through all the other lines and go up the field back to the first line once they’ve received a ball. Get at least 4-5 balls going at the same time.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Throw the ball hard.
2) Catch the ball without twisting the stick.
3) Don’t move until thrown to.
4) Call out the name of the person you’re passing to.

Work on a Variety of Lacrosse Skills in One Drill!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Director of Team ONE lacrosse and former head coach of the Chicago Machine, John Combs, teaches his youth players a variety of skills at one time in the All-In-One drill. Players will learn to field ground balls, pass the ball, make J-turns and make over-the-shoulder passes.

All-In-One Drill

Drill Summary: This is a three player drill. Begin with two players on the sideline with one player facing them, about 15 yards away. To begin, one player on the sideline rolls a ball out and the other sideline player must run out and scoop it up. After retrieving the ball, the player passes it to the third person in the drill. That player must then quickly return the ball to the person who just passed it to them, then run back toward the sideline before receiving a pass over their shoulder. Finally, the receiver passes back to the player on the sideline, who passes back to the thrower and the whole process is repeated.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Accurate throws.
2) Scooping ability.
3) Good cuts and turns.
4) Call out names on passes.
