Stick Trick Saturday: The Snowball Effect

LAS Nation,

I hope everyone is having a happy and safe holiday season thus far. Since I love the snow so much, and there is so much of it on the ground out here in Montana, we might as well use it to our advantage. So what I want you to do is grab a snow ball and make it about the size of a lacrosse ball. Then see how crazy your tricks can get without breaking the snowball.

This exercise is forcing you to have soft hands, or your snowball will bust apart. Shaft bounces are probably one of the more difficult tricks to do with a snowball. So really focus up and use those soft hands!

For you folks closer to the South, try out fake snow, and let me know how it works?!?
