Encourage Your Youth Lacrosse Players to Pass the Ball!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, January 13, 2015

In this drill aimed at the youth lacrosse player, head coach Kenneth “Bear” Davis of the Ohio Machine (MLL) teaches young athletes that assists can be fun too. Davis calls assists “apples,” which makes sharing the apples a rewarding experience for kids.

Apples are Unselfish

Drill Summary: If you have a player or two on your team that are great at splitting and ripping, they need to be able to pass if the defense starts keying in on them. To set up this drill, have the drilling player stand about twenty yards in front of the goal with the coach about halfway between. To begin, the coach tosses a ball to the player, who must catch the ball with a left handed grip. After catching the ball, the player runs at the coach, splits just before getting to the coach, attacks the goal, then passes off to another player who is standing on the other side of the goal for an assist. Make sure to switch directions after awhile so players can work on both hands.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Work on using both hands.
2) Make it look like you’re going to shoot before passing.
3) Switch with the ball facing you (to protect it).
4) Keep your eyes up.
