Wall Ball Program

 

Pinnacle Wall Ball Progam

Guidelines

1) Gloves are optional for the first 2 weeks. You should be comfortable in your game gloves by the  start of fall ball performing all skills. 

2) Close D and LSMs should complete the routine with a short stick. Advanced players may use a  long pole. All skills tests will require a short stick (BTB, split dodges, etc.) 

3) Dial in your pocket. Find someone to re‐string if you have an off‐the‐shelf pocket, order one  online, text coach for help.  a. This is not optional. The cost v. benefit here is massive. Fix your crap pocket NOW. 

4) There are thousands of available resources to make you a better lacrosse player. Seek them out.   

5) If you have a question, ask.   

Procedures 

Any player seeking to be considered for varsity playing time should perform the routine 3‐4 times per  week. If you want to be good, perform it daily. There are few guarantees in the world, but daily wall ball will make you better (I guarantee it). 

Throw for 25‐30 minutes. It is possible to get 1000 touches in 30 minutes.   

1) Stand roughly 10‐15 feet from the wall 

2) Aim for a spot about 10 feet off the ground 

3) Throw hard 

4) Listen to music, Visualize game situations, or just zone out and count 

Basic Skills 

10x Right hand 

10x Left hand 

10x Quick stick right (7‐10 feet away) 

10x Quick stick left 

10x One hand right (hold stick slightly above halfway) 

10x One hand left 

20x Right>Catch& Split>Left>Catch & Split (1 Throw & Catch with each side=1 rep) 

20x Right>split>catch Left>split> right (split in the air, 1 Throw & Catch with each side=1 rep)   

Advanced Skills 

10x Canadian Left (cross‐handed right) 

10x Canadian right (cross‐handed left) 

5x BTB right 

5x BTB left 

Division 1 NCAA players are expected to complete this routine in 2m30s   

Tips 

1) Point the butt end of your stick at the target.   

2) SOFT HANDS. Pretend the ball is an egg. 

3) Snap your wrists forward upon release   

Winter Conditioning Test: 1 mile field run (5 laps+endline <8m), 40yd dash (5.5s), Agililty T (10s)
