Wall Ball Drills

 

Historically, nothing does more to improve a lacrosse player's skills than practicing "wall ball." This is the lacrosse equivalent of woodshedding and top coaches agree that wall ball will strengthen a player's ball control, ambidexterity and all-around skills. Find yourself a good wall, preferably where you won't be likely to break any windows, and try the following drills. Stick with it and follow these guidelines...you and your teammates will be impressed with the results! 

 

 

Required Equipment:

  • Lacrosse ball
  • Dead ball
  • Sidewalk chalk (use chalk to color in targets at eye and shin level)
  • Lacrosse gloves

  • Quick Stick – (no colored target but focus on a brick/area about 10’ up on the wall)
    • 50 right, then 50 left (no cradle)

  • One-Hand Quick Stick – (no colored target but focus on a brick/area about 10’ up on the wall)
    • Standing 3-5 yards away from the wall (get closer if needed)

      • 10 overhand 
      • 10 sidearm 
      • 10 underhand

 

  • Overhand Passing – 
    • Catch right, throw left; catch left, throw right (switch hands every time) 
    • Minimum 100 passes standing 12-15 yards from the wall aiming at top target
