Spring 2020 Quarantine Workouts

Let’s stay active boys! Here are some routines that you can do (mostly…mostly) in your backyard or by yourself. This is a great time to work on your hands (stick skills), your footwork and your shooting. On the other side of this ordeal you should be in a good position to have some great hands and feet. We are going to be working with the coaching staff to send all teams routines and workouts each week but this is the start. We will also organize Zoom meetings, maybe team dinners, game video analysis and other workshops for the boys so please stay tuned for some great content.

Most importantly, be healthy, make each other laugh and smile, practice social distancing and know that your health and the health of your families is the highest priority. We love you all. Now let’s get down to it shall we:

The workouts should be used as a competition with yourself. No matter what your position is you should do these drills. Don’t shoot with a goalie stick though, use a shorty. You need to figure out how to do all of it by using the videos. Our coaches are standing by to help you if you don’t know how to do it so please let us know. When we get out of this and are back on the field you can expect that your coaches may ask you to demonstrate some of these drills. Let’s make sure that we are educating ourselves and being accountable students of the game. We may be asking for videos from the boys so we can make sure it is being done correctly.


The Wall Ball Routine and the Shooting Routine should always be finished with the footwork drills. There are six of them and you should go through them all. If you are worried about using lacrosse balls and breaking your fence, you can use tennis balls.

 

The videos come from First Class Lacrosse and are on Vimeo. You don’t need a subscription but let us
know if you run into any issues. Let's work and have fun - LET'S GO!!!
