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.

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.
