Create More Scoring Options by Setting Good Picks!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, May 13, 2014

The 2013 NCAA Championship coaching staff at the University of Duke along with Head Coach, John Danowski, provide you with a more advanced drill that incorporates setting a pick, which then creates two players that can be options for the feeder. This will also teach the player that uses the pick to not take off until the picker is set and stationary.

Pop/Slip Shooting

Drill Setup: One player sets up about 5-7 yards above and outside the crease. The second player that will set the pick is also about 5-7 yards above the crease and about 10-15 yards outside the other pipe. The feeder is a couple of yards below GLE about 10 yards away from the pipe.

Athlete Movements: The player runs and sets the pick, the other player runs off the pick and has his stick up ready for the pass. But as soon as the player runs off the pick, the picker turns to face the feeder for a quick pass (Pop) and shot. The feeder has two options to pass to for a shot.

Teaching Points:

  • Remember the phrase “Pick, Pop, Shoot” from Coach Danowski
  • For the pick sequence, if the athlete leaves too soon, the pick can be ineffective, but more importantly, the picker can get called for a moving pick/screen and can result in a penalty.

Use This Fast Pace Drill to Work on Shooting Techniques!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Mark Petrone coaches alongside highly successful Haverford School Head Coach, John Nostrant. This is a fast-paced shooting drill that gets the players a high number of shots on goal in a short amount of time. This drill reinforces technique and is a great way to work on placement.

Warm Up Shooting Drill

How it Works: Form two lines of players, five yards outside each pipe and 20 yards out from the cage. One player passes to the other side, who catches and then takes a shot. The player who passed, receives the next pass from the other side for the next shot. And it continues in that fashion at a high pace.

Drill Tips:

  1. Know where you want to place the ball before you get it
  2. Show your back to the goalie, then follow through with your shoulders

  3. Shoot hard and overhand, and point where you want the shot to go

To increase the challenge, give your players a defined area to shoot at such as a lower corner, far side pipe, high corner. This same drill can also be done from different distances from the front of the cage.
