Lacrosse fundamentals are the key to a successful lacrosse career. Below are some drills for Red Devil United Wall Ball Clinics.

20 Minute a Day Drills

Each day, do each of the eight exercises below for 2 minutes, 30 seconds.

Right Overhand Throw and Catch

Standing 8-10 feet from wall, throw and catch using overhand technique. Limit yourself to one cradle between exchanges. Focus on a spot on the wall that will return the ball back to you in “the box” near your head.

Left Overhand Throw and Catch

Same as above, only this time with your left hand.

Right One Hand

With your right hand, hold your stick about at the halfway mark. From 6-10 feet away, throw and catch with one hand.

Left One Hand

Same as above, only this time with your left hand.

Throw Right, Catch Left

Remain at 8-10 feet from the wall and continue using overhand technique. Throw with your right hand and switch to your left when the ball is in the air. Catch the ball, switch back to your right (think split dodge) and repeat.

Throw Left, Catch Right

Same as above, reversed.

“Canadian” Left Throw and Catch

Hold the stick as you would if throwing and catching right-handed, but position your stick on the left side of your body.

“Canadian” Right Throw and Catch

Behind the Back

For 1 minute, 15 seconds with each hand, throw the ball behind your back and catch it as you normally would “in the box.”
