GET YOUR WALL BALL IN!

WALL BALL -

  • K-2 have fun with your stick.  Try new stick tricks, practice cradling and dodging and explore the pitch back and wall ball.  Get dirty practicing ground balls!
  • 3 - 5 explore the suggestions below and above.  Try everything and have fun!
  • 6th and up - Keep the love and fun alive!  The list below should be top of mind as often as possible.  Take a healthy break form your stick this holiday season.  Find balance with your other sports but come Feb. 1 - GAME ON!

This routine can be performed by either gender. The following stick drills should be used daily in the off-season and several times per week during the season. Once you master your stick (which takes a lot of dedication) the rest of your game will fall into place with much less frustration. Stick with it!

  1. Boys; gloves are mandatory
  2. Girls; gloves are optional (if you wear them during a game wear them during practice)
  3. Any wall is fine, but a smooth surface at least 10 feet tall is optimum (concrete, block)
  4. Drills should take no longer than 30 minutes maximum
  5. Stand approx.12-15 feet from the wall
  6. Do not let the ball hit the ground
  7. Pass and catch in the area above your shoulder; to the right of left or your head
  8. Strong hand quick stick 50 times; then 50 times weak hand
  9. Strong hand toss/catch,¼ cradle repeat 50 times; then 50 times weak hand
  10. Strong hand 1 hand catch 50 times; then 50 times weak hand
  11. Strong hand catch and face dodge 50 times; then 50 times weak hand
  12. Split dodge/ throw right catch right/ split to left hand throw left and catch left 50 times
  13. Quick stick while the ball is in the air switch hands on every toss 50 times
  14. Cross-handed 50 times each hand. Throw right rotate hands left and visa versa
  15. One hand passing/shooting 50 times each hand (start with hand close to the stick head as you get better and stronger move your hand down the stick shaft),experiment
  16. Behind the back 50 times each hand.
  17. Develop you own routine: if space is big enough jog down the wall while passing. Jog while catching to the right then reverse. Behind the head catching. Bounce pass catching.
  18. Pass and catch with the wall by having the ball being either passed or caught in an unconventional manner or less than perfect spot. Less than perfect passes happen in EVERY game, get ready. Be the best you can be regardless of conditions.
