Atlanta Youth Lacrosse
Offense, Midfield, Defense
To work on making a strong dodge towards the goal. Also focuses on groundballs, clearing, and shooting.
Description of Drill-Execution
Start by setting up a 6 v 6 with a goalie in the cage. Also, the coach is behind the goal with 6 balls in his stick. The offense must work the ball around one time and at a random time the coach will blow the whistle and whichever attacker has the ball must dodge their defender. Once there is a turnover or a shot the coach will yell firecracker and throw all six balls out towards the players. The players must now fight for a groundball against the defender they were previously on. If the defender gets the ball they must clear the ball over the restraining line. If the attacker gets the ball they must dodge on cage and get a shot off.
