Lacrosse pro Chris “OD” O’Dougherty breaks down a fun variation of a 1-on-1 drill he calls “Scoop and Chase”!
I caught up with Mitch Belisle in Fort Greene Park (located in Brooklyn, NY) and we got to talking about off season training and things that kids could do to improve their game. A simple way of working on stick skills, wrist strength, ball awareness and overall ground ball skill is by practicing the Indian Pick Up aka a quick stick pick up.
In order to keep the ball in-bounds and to give my team a better chance of gaining possession, I added the “Goose” to my skill set. This is a very simple but effective skill to add to your repertoire.
Scooping up groundballs with a pole is becoming more and more important at every level of the game. Effectively throwing takeaway checks is ultimately ineffective if you cannot then pick the ball up and push transition.
Ground balls are very important, everyone knows that, but do you… Man-ball?
