Wall Ball Challenge!

Dear Lacrosse Parents,

 

We have a lot of challenges as a lacrosse program, including, but not limited to:

· lack of population base in Routt County

· 3 hour drive from population center

· snow 6 months a year

· lack of turf fields/indoor facilities

 

We have created a Wall Ball Challenge that we hope will help improve our stick skills individually and as a group (The Challenge is written out below this email, as well as on steamboatyouthlacrosse.org). If we show up with better stick skills than any team that we play, we will always be competitive despite the challenges listed above.

 

Stick handling does not improve without a lot of practice. Good stick handling is usually a direct reflection of the effort that a player puts into it. As a program we have some good stick handlers, but arguably not a single advanced stick handler at any age group.

 

The Wall Ball challenge measures where a stick handler stands at a moment in time. The challenge itself will not improve stick handling, but consistent practice on a wall or with a partner will. 

 

We hope the kids get motivated to improve and have fun with this challenge. Keep in mind that the players that are the least interested in Wall Ball are the players that probably need it the most. If you have any questions regarding this challenge, please email Neill Redfern at 

 

Good luck! Thanks, Neill, for putting this together!
