At Home Practice Drills and Skills
by posted 03/24/2019


Here are some thoughts on how the kids can work on their game at home:

  • Wall Ball – Wall ball is a great way for your daughter or son to improve their throwing and catching skills. Have them take his ball and stick, find a solid, outdoor wall, and play catch. Whether your child is a beginner or a superstar, different variations of wall ball are the best way for them to improve their stick skills. Click here for a great wall ball routine.
  • Cradling – Cradling is the act of keeping the ball in the pocket; this is done by moving the wrist and fingers. Cradling keeps the ball in the pocket using centripetal force. Your player can practice this at home or outside with his stick and ball. Make sure to practice with both hands!!

  • Scooping – Your daughter or son can practice scooping up balls off the floor at home or off the ground outside. To make scooping more interesting, have them scoop his dirty clothes off their bedroom floor!

  • Running – All players will need to build up endurance for the lacrosse season. Running outside or up and down stairs are great ways to stay in shape for the season.
