We wish you a Happy New Year and good luck for your upcoming preseason.
This week’s drill is the very basic boxdrill. If this drill is done properly, it teaches your players a lot of very important fundamentals (communication, approaching the ball, covering passing lanes, passing & catching, offball movement, stick protection – just to name a few). Sadly the drill does not have a good reputation among our players and can be quite exhausting. Because of that players often just fight through it and execute the drill very sloppy. As a coach make sure to watch for proper execution and rather cut down the time for each repetition. Conditioning is just a bonus in this drill as there are more effective conditioning drills.
