The first thing people notice about lacrosse on Long Island, Baltimore or Up State New York is how fast the ball moves. This isn’t a result of football players playing lacrosse. This occurs because they have great stick skills. Having speed and strength is merely complimentary to stick work. In fact several athletes have reached the highest levels of the game despite a lack of physical gifts. Stick skills give everyone a chance to contribute to a team.
If you can’t throw and catch, you can’t run a drill. If you can’t run a drill, you can’t run an offense. If you can’t run an offense, you can’t win a game. If you can’t win a game, you’ll never become a champion.
Every player that wants to improve needs to work on their game every day.
Like I said last week, once you finish your chores and homework you can work on your game. Find a wall (make a chalk mark or use a piece of tape)and make 5o passes (always start with your non dominant hand) to that spot then switch hands. Make one handed passes, bounce passes etc etc. There are tons of ways to improve but this is the quickest way to improve.
See ya on the field
