Lacrosse Wall Ball Drills That Will Make You Better
It sounds cliché, but it’s the golden rule in lacrosse: hit the wall. We’ve all heard it from our first practice as children to our angry college coaches who saw us drop one too many passes: HIT. THE. WALL. So, you’ll want to know some lacrosse wall ball drills.
I’ve assembled five great videos to help you improve your stick skills and included a few tips for each to get you started. Champions are made in the offseason, so go find a wall, a bounce back, or even a pallet of wood leaned against something, and get better today.
Lacrosse Wall Ball Drills to Make You Better
Legendary player Bill Daye breaks down the importance of wall ball and gives a few tips to get us started.
This wall ball workout with Joey Sankey is a great way to challenge yourself and also get the necessary reps. He starts of with the basics and builds his way up to more advanced skills.
Any intermediate player can do this one, and I think it’s a great way to hit all of the different pass types in a short period of time. If you’re an intermediate to advanced player, I’d recommend this set of wall ball drills after a long weekend or a few days away from the stick to quickly get dialed in.
If you want a challenge or a way to keep yourself busy for hours, try any one of the things that lacrosse legend Matt Gibson does in the video below. Try watching this video without immediately running outside and attempting a few of these.
- Get the reps you need, but also get creative. Wall ball is where you can add stuff to your game without risk.
- Move your feet as much as possible. No one ever throws passes with two flat feet squared up to their teammate in a game.
- Use tape or landmarks to hit spots on the wall to dial in accuracy. If it’s your wall, tape a lacrosse goal outline.
- Do wall ball drills with your gamer and your backup(s). What good is a backup stick that you’ve never used before the gamer breaks? Have the whole arsenal ready to go.
How Eagle Scout Dorje John built a $30K wall at Summit High SchoolSummit High School student and Boy Scout Dorje John stands in front of his Eagle Service Project, a lacrosse wall on the school grounds, Thursday June 1, 2017, in Breckenridge. The wall creates rebounding practice for the lacrosse team.
Hugh Carey / [email protected] |
Some folks wondered if he’d bit off more than he could chew. Others balked at the idea of a $30,000 concrete slab in the middle of a field. Even he wondered if he could raise enough cash and secure a fire permit for such an enormous Eagle Scout project, which spanned from his freshman lacrosse season to this past winter, when the 17-year-old was a junior on the Summit High boys team.
But no one is wondering any longer. Dorje John has built the wall.
“It was really nice to get out there and have the feeling of throwing a ball against a wall that I built, a wall that I worked to make real,” said John, who modeled the 12-foot high, 24-foot wide concrete slab after a similar installment he saw at Battle Mountain High School in Edwards. “It was cool to see that it actually worked.”
Not only does it work — it’s a much-needed addition to the Tigers lacrosse teams. Before now, the boys and girls had no real place to practice ball control, save the bumpy side of the stadium building, and that was frowned upon.
So John, who has played lacrosse for 10 years and been in Scouting nearly as long, decided to build a wall. It seemed easy enough — build a flat, upright slab and plunk it in a field — but he never realized just how intricate construction can be. He had to get approval from the school before securing a fire permit to pour concrete, and that was all before finding a contractor to donate about $15,000 worth of material. Eagle Scout projects call for planning, fundraising, project management and volunteer coordination, and all of it had to be done without opening a personal checkbook.
“At one point, I thought about not doing the wall when I realized how much money I needed to raise and how much time this would take before it could even get done,” said John, a longtime Summit native born in Nepal. “I thought about doing something easier to get my Eagle quicker, but I wanted to stay with it because I really thought it would help the athletic community at the high school. ”
As a freshman, John moved from Boy Scouts to Venturing, a high-adventure coed arm of Scouting. One of his adult leaders there, T.A. Rosko, who simply goes by “Rosko,” was one of the many who shared John’s doubts about the wall.
“I was thinking, ‘Did Dorje bite off more than he can chew?’” Rosko remembered from when John started planning the project in fall 2015. “But the finished project was excellent and I think he learned that there’s more planning and scheduling involved than he thought there would be.”
The project took plenty of work: 206 total man hours spread over a full year, including 30 by John alone for hand-sanding the rough concrete to a smooth, lacrosse-ready surface. Armstrong Concrete Forming of Breckenridge donated the concrete, but John and a crew of volunteers did all of the form building and finishing, and the wall is one of few Eagle Project designed to last for decades and decades. It’s concrete after all, and that’s something John likes to think about, especially now that it’s finished. He received his Eagle Scout rank this February and still has a full year to use the wall as a senior lacrosse mid.
“I’ve been told by a lot of lacrosse parents and players that it’s really cool and that they’re glad it got done,” John said. “I mentioned this idea to lots of people, like old coaches, and they’ve told me they’re happy it’s there.”
Long live the wall.
5 Wall Ball Drills by Hustle Training
Wall ball is the ideal way to practice basic lacrosse techniques such as shooting, passing and catching all while working in cradling. Wall ball allows you to get in tons of repetitions without depending on a partner. As a youth lacrosse player just starting out, playing wall ball is the number one way to quickly improve your stick skills.
The Importance of Following a Wall Ball Routine
While tossing against a wall is the best way to build your stick skills on your own, mindlessly passing and catching can get boring pretty quickly. Having a structured wall ball routine will make things more interesting and will help you improve in a more efficient manner. The following is a guided routine from professional player and trainer Martin Bowes of Compete Lacrosse Academy. Do this routine every day, but don’t expect to get better right away. Improving stick skills is a gradual process and the only way to see real, tangible improvement is by hitting the wall on a daily basis.
Throw, Catch and Switch Hands
Throw, catch, switch hands is a stick work drill where you’ll be continuously changing the side of your body that you’re releasing and catching from. So once you receive the pass, we’re working on exchanging to the other hand into a release on the other side of our body. We’re working on throwing and catching for both righty and lefty and the process of changing hands is the crucial aspect which will allow us to be as efficient as possible. The efficiency of this drill comes from the process of catch, exchange, release. We want to be catching into the exchange and exchanging into the release. To add a more advanced touch to this drill, you can start changing the release points so we can go from overhand into side arm, and then from side arm down to underhand releases on both lefty and righty to challenge yourself as more advanced stick work drill.
In this drill, we’ll be alternating between throwing normal and pump faking, so we want to try to pump fake right into that next throw. The key here is in the pump fake itself. We want to minimize extra motions so that we can be as efficient as possible. When we pump fake. Let’s avoid coming forward to backward and make this more about an up and down motion. As you’ll see when the stick is pump faked, it does not come in front of my head. It stays back behind, which allows me to minimize the recoil time. So if I get the goalie or the defender to bite on that fake, my next throw or shot is that much quicker.
For this wall ball drill, we’ll be focusing on behind the backs. This can be a polarizing release as some coaches believe it’s only for flash, but I believe that this is very, very functional. The first thing we want to understand is that there’s a lot of different ways that you could throw behind the back pass, so to start, try releasing it really close to your head, a little bit further away, lower down and try out some different types of releases to see what works for you. As you get more comfortable, we can progress this drill by alternating between behind the back and overhead. As we’re alternating, we’re trying to set the next throw up so each of these catches can initiate the next release immediately. One of the keys to mastering behind the back passing is understanding that you want to reverse the roles of your hands where when you throw a normal pass, you push with your top hand and pull with your bottom, but on a behind the back, you’re going to pull with your top hand and push with your bottom along with rotating your upper body the opposite direction.
Quick sticks is a drill where we’ll focus on catching right into our next throw, so we’re not going to cradle at any point during this drill. Our main focus is efficiency, which means we’re trying to have that ball spend as little time in our stick as possible. In order to get efficient at this drill, what we’ll have to do is catch the ball further behind our head than we are used to. So as that ball enters the mesh, we’re already initiating the next throw. Whereas if we were to catch the ball out in front of our body, we would be forced to then cradle it back to a throwing position. In this case, we’re able to receive our pass and immediately initiate that next throw.
Catching Bad Passes
Catching bad passes is something that we’ll have to get good at. If we want to play at a high level for a long time, there’s only so many passes that your teammates will give you that will be good passes, so we might as well practice catching the bad ones. For this first portion, what we’ll focus on is catching off stick side. So you’re going to throw yourself a pass to your off-stick side. Without changing hands, getting your stick to windshield wiper across and receive and try to get it back in one crate. For the second part to this, what we’ll focus on is catching passes that are down by our feet. In this case, it’s important that we challenge ourselves to throw passes that are bouncing back at us at awkward angles. So not just down by your feet, but even on your off stick side as if a goalie, we’re working on off stick low. It’s important that we try stepping to the ball and that we move our feet and get used to catching these bad passes while we are moving.

He bought back Arsenal’s shares from Usmanov.Photo: Sean M. Haffey, gettyimages.com
THE BIGGEST SPORTS EMPIRE IN THE WORLD
One of the most famous conflicts in English football has been resolved – Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov ceded 30% of Arsenal’s shares to American businessman Stan Kronke .The latter now owns 97% of the club.
In addition to Arsenal, the American also owns the NFL, MLS, NHL and NBA clubs. Of all the major leagues on the planet, he has not yet gotten out only to baseball. This business empire is so vast that it is called the richest man in the world of sports.
Usmanov left Arsenal. He lost the Six Years War to Kronke
Kroenke himself still has a construction business. He also owns the exclusive development rights to real estate near Wal-Mart stores thanks to his wife Anne .She is the heiress of this multi-billion dollar business. But all of his third-party assets do not generate such insane income as football and basketball clubs.
The peculiarity of the Kronke empire is that it generates profit from sports and lives on it. While the rest of the American and European team owners sponsor clubs mainly through their third-party business, Kroenke, on the contrary, lives on the third-party business at the expense of Arsenal, Los Angeles and clubs from Colorado.
Good or bad – it’s hard to judge.Fans of all the clubs don’t like him, but thanks to him their clubs live economically happily. Judging by the sports results, then everything is pretty sad.
ARSENAL, nuclear submarine
Arsenal Holding plc was the actual owner of Arsenal for a long time. Before the purchase of Usmanov’s shares, Kronke owned 67% of this organization. The American came to the club in 2007, having bought out several percent, and after two years he brought his share to 30%.In the future, Kronke only increased his presence in the club.
Arsenal fans hate Kronke. Yes, the businessman has covered many of the club’s debts following the construction of the Emirates stadium. At first, the fans understood why the club was saving on everything. But now it seems to them that Kroenke is using the team only as a “cash cow”.
If before the arrival of Kroenke, Arsenal won the English championship, reached the Champions League final, but in ten years of the American at the club won three FA Cups, and even then only six years after joining.The fans are also extremely unhappy that the Emirates are the most expensive tickets in the league, despite the lack of results.
Now, after the departure of Usmanov, many are worried about the financial despotism of Kronke. Arsenal have generated over 500 million euros in profit over the past five years, but much more economical times are expected. For the second year in a row, the London club has failed to qualify for the Champions League, which means it loses almost € 70 million every year.
Tottenham will soon dominate Europe.But first, a few years without purchases
LOS ANGELES REMS, NFL
The billionaire acquired the club in its entirety in 2010 by purchasing the team’s shares from the family of Frontier . Back in 1995, he helped the owners of the club move from Los Angeles to St. Louis. Under the leadership of the Frontiers, the club achieved its historic first NFL championship. After that, the club regularly experienced financial and gaming crises, as a result, the owners agreed to sell the team to Kronke.
After the purchase, the billionaire’s main goal was not the coveted championship – he wanted to move the franchise back to Los Angeles. For six years, Kroenke prepared the project until the NFL leadership agreed with his arguments and did not allow the “rams” to move to Los Angeles. If, during the reign in St. Louis, the team never made it to the playoffs, then after the move, Kroenke first began to promote the brand and strengthen the roster.
Clubs traded the first draft number with the opponents, and got into the playoffs in the second season.Now the Rams are considered one of the favorites of their conference, and they predict if not the Super Bowl, then at least a place in the playoff semifinals. Kroenke thinks not only about the result, but also about the profit. Now the stadium, where the team plays, is undergoing a large-scale reconstruction of the stands, and its capacity will decrease from 90 to 77 thousand. The club may lose 13 thousand potential spectators, but will improve the quality of the view and increase the number of premium seats.
The main project has not yet been completed by Kroenke. He is currently building the most expensive sports facility in the world – the team’s new stadium will accommodate more than 70 thousand spectators and will cost almost $ 3 billion.There is just one problem. Kronke is building a stadium for the 2028 Olympics and the 2026 World Cup, but with a high degree of probability he will not see these competitions on his Opus Magnum.
COLORADO EVALANCE, NHL
Kroenke bought the hockey club in one “package” together with basketball “Denver” and their joint arena “Pepsi Center”. The previous owners, apparently anticipating the desire of the billionaire to make money for everything, pre-registered in the agreement that Colorado has no right to move to another city until 2025.90,050 Of all Kroenke’s major assets, Colorado brings in the least income. But this is the only franchise that was somehow competitive – the next season after buying the avalanche they won the Stanley Cup, and before the 2004/05 lockout they were always considered the NHL favorites. After a season missed by the league and the introduction of new economic parameters, including a salary cap, the team made only five playoffs out of 13.
In fact, if it were an intentional financial restriction, then Kroenke would have continued to invest in the club.Before the lockout, Colorado had one of the biggest payoffs in the league, but now if the club is shooting, then such rare stars as Nathan McKinon . Obviously, if the economic model of the NHL does not change in the coming years, then in seven years Kroenke will seriously consider moving the team to another city.
Interestingly, under NFL rules, a club owner cannot lead other teams from the NHL, NBA, and Major League Baseball unless they are based in the same city as the American football franchise.When Kroenke bought out the Rams, he rewrote the team to his wife Anne to get around the rules. Yes, the law was not violated, but all the owners realized that it was possible to cheat the system. Since then, the NFL has been tough on any possible shenanigans.
DENVER NAGGETS, NBA
Like the Colorado hockey club, this basketball club does not belong to Stan Kroenk. Legally, its owner is Ann Kronke, the wife of the billionaire, and the president is Josh Kronke , their son. A businessman will always find loopholes in regulations.90,050 In 2000, hockey and basketball in Denver fell completely under the control of the Kronke family. Stan has no influence on the management of the team, it is completely under the control of his son. It is important for the billionaire that the franchise generates income, which has been the case in recent years. And if the Colorado and the Rams at the time of purchase were one of the strongest teams in their leagues, then Denver was considered an ordinary extra.
When Kroenke bought the basketball team, it didn’t make the playoffs for five seasons.The family needed time to clean up. In the 2003/04 season, for the first time in ten years, the team passed the regular season, since then, ten seasons in a row have entered the playoffs. True, she went through the first round only once.
Now Denver is the team that all the time lacks something to reach the playoffs. Perhaps this is due to the strength of the conference – the Nuggets are playing in the monstrous West. But even such failures do not affect the franchise’s income in any way – due to the large television contract, the team’s operating profit is still almost $ 50 million.
COLORADO REPIDS, MLS
This football club is one of the founders of MLS. The league was created in 1996 after the 1994 World Cup held in the United States. The Kronke family joined the team in 2004 and believed that football would soon become especially popular in the country.
But it turned out quite differently. Now in the league, franchises are financially successful, which appeared after MLS had found its audience. Atlanta, Seattle, Toronto, Portland, New York City have all been in the league for less than ten years.Only “LA Galaxy” somehow earns, but it is not so difficult to do it in Los Angeles.
In the latest financial report for Forbes, the Kroenke soccer franchise was ranked next to last in value. The club had a negative balance of income and spending. The businessman lost more than eight million dollars, which would be a huge failure for any club in the United States if it were not for the billionaire’s third-party funds. In fact, the club now feeds on funds earned in the NFL, NBA and Premier League.Hockey “Colorado” also does not come to self-sufficiency, but there is only a million dollars short of a profit.
Kroenke has no plans to move the soccer franchise to another city. In MLS this is not accepted, recently only the move of one team has been actively discussed – Columbus may leave for Texas. The family, apparently, is still confident in the profitability of the project, since Denver is one of the candidate cities for the 2026 World Cup.90,050 90,093 OTHER ASSETS 90,094
In addition to these five teams, Kroenke also has lacrosse teams, its own radio network and the Altitude sports channel.He owns the Pepsi Center sports arena in Denver and a number of facilities throughout the state of Colorado. In three years, a new stadium will open in Los Angeles, which means that the businessman’s finances will go up.
So far, it can be assumed that the Kronke empire will live on for decades. All clubs are either profitable or on the brink of payback. The MLS club, of course, is unprofitable, but everything can change after the World Cup-2026. It is also rumored that Kroenke plans to increase his influence in European football in the near future by entering the European Union market..
