HIT THE WALL

It’s FUNDAMENTAL

PurePowell Wall Ball Drill

What’s up Lacrosse Players! Stick skills are by far the most important facet of the game of lacrosse. If you spend time working on the wall and following a routine, I guarantee that you will become a better player. All great lacrosse players have spent hours and hours on the wall. Here is a routine that I do, so now that you have a program, it’s up to you to find a wall and get started.                                                                                                                                                    Good Luck!

For Best Results:

  1. Find a flat brick or concrete wall at least 10 feet high, the longer the better.

  2. Stand 10-15 feet away from the wall at first to work on improving your throwing and catching.

  3. BOUNCE the ball a foot or two away from the front of the wall so it can rise to a good height for catching. 

  4. Try to get the ball to bounce right into your stick without moving, don’t snatch at the ball, ease the ball into your pocket and into a ready to throw position.

  5. Every drill that you do - complete it with both hands.

  6. Try to wear gloves and a helmet when you are performing your workout - you play with a helmet and gloves on, so why not practice with them.

  7. Perform this program at least 4-5 times per week.

  8. It should take you 20/30 minutes in length- if you finish all drills in less than 20/30 minutes, repeat drills starting with the drill that challenged you the most.

  9. Listening to music always helps me focus, so crank up the tunes!

  10. Have fun, get better, play with confidence.
