Work on Cradling Techniques and Build Your Field Awareness!

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Winningest Coach in NCAA Tournament History, Kelly Amonte Hiller, has players perform a partner passing drill while under pressure. This drill involves two players partner passing while two additional players are standing behind them acting as the opponent. The goal here is for players to build their cradling and awareness skills while throwing or receiving a pass.

Stick Protection Passing Drill

Athlete Movement: The drill starts with partner passing. As the ball is received, a player begins to protect the ball while the opponent behind them attempts to check their stick. After a few seconds of protecting, the ball carrier will throw the ball back to their partner and they repeat the process.

Drill Benefits: This is a great drill not only to get players to be aware of the area around them, but it also builds a player’s confidence when being challenged by an aggressive defensive unit.

Create Space to Find the Open Shot!

John Danowski, Duke University Head Lacrosse Coach, reinforces the need for players to learn to shoot on the run. The technique that he teaches is designed to create separation between the shooter and the defender, in order to get off a shot.

Shooting on the Run

How it Works: The drill begins with players approximately 5-7 yards above GLE. A player will pick up a ball and take only a few steps before jumping off their inside foot and shooting. Some might call the movement a “hitch” that is used to create separation from the defender.

Drill Tips: In this drill, continue to reinforce good shooting techniques that include getting the hands back and kissing the shoulder. Note that the shooters are aiming for the back third of the goal (or inside the far pipe), because a goalie would be protecting the near pipe.
