2020 RELAX Camp 

The loss of the spring athletic season due to COVID-19 has had many negative impacts on athletes of all age groups. In order to provide a meaningful athletic training experience for the girl’s lacrosse players in grades 5-8, RELAX will provide a summer camp on Aug 3-5. The camp was developed in accordance with Governor Lamont’s Sector Rules for the June 17th Reopening. All activities will be conducted with the safety and wellbeing of the athletes and coaches as the primary focus. 

Please review the rules below prior to attendance at the first session. 

1. If you are ill in any fashion, stay home!

2. We require that you self-administer a temperature check at home prior to coming 

to any activity. You will be asked to confirm that.

3. Coaches will also screen athletes prior to entering the field area. Any athlete exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 will not be allowed to participate in the session and will be required to leave the complex.

4. You must follow the directions of the coaches as to where to go at the start of practice. 

To start, we have put you in smaller groups, and you must only interact with players in that group.

5. All athletes must wear a mask when not actively participating in on-field activities. This 

includes walking to and from the field.

6. No sharing of water bottles.

7. No sharing of personal equipment.

8. Players are encouraged to bring hand sanitizer.

9. No sitting in the bleachers.

10. Parents and others who choose to watch the clinics must avoid close congregation in 

groups and must stay outside of the fenced area.

11. Coaches will wear masks whenever proper social distancing can’t be conducted.

12. Athletes must leave the field and parking area immediately following practice to allow 

other programs safe access to the field.

13. A parent and each athlete must sign the waiver form prior to participation. 

As guidance related to COVID-19 changes, we will adjust accordingly and communicate rule changes immediately. This program is not a function of JBHS or its athletic program. If you are unsure about any of the rules above please do not hesitate to address your concerns with coaches. Please refrain from contacting the JBHS administration with your concerns.

ALL YEAR Wall Ball Routine

RELAXers,

To keep everyone sharp and ready to go for lacrosse season (keep the faith!!), here is great wall ball routine that can be done by anyone! Stay healthy, stay positive!

World Class Wall Ball Routine

This routine can be performed by either gender. The following stick drills should be used daily in the off-season and several times per week during the season. Once you master your stick (which takes a lot of dedication) the rest of your game will fall into place with much less frustration. Stick with it!
 

  1. Boys; gloves are mandatory
  2. Girls; gloves are optional (if you wear them during a game wear them during practice)
  3. Any wall is fine, but a smooth surface at least 10 feet tall is optimum (concrete, block)
  4. Drills should take no longer than 30 minutes maximum
  5. Stand approx.12-15 feet from the wall
  6. Do not let the ball hit the ground
  7. Pass and catch in the area above your shoulder; to the right of left or your head
  8. Strong hand toss/catch,
  9. Strong hand quick stick 50 times; then 50 times weak hand
  10. Strong hand 1 hand catch and cradle 50 times; then 50 times weak hand
  11. Strong hand catch and face dodge 50 times; then 50 times weak hand
  12. Split dodge/ throw right catch right/ split to left hand throw left and catch left 50 times
  13. Quick stick while the ball is in the air switch hands on every toss 50 times
  14. Cross-handed 50 times each hand. Throw right rotate hands left and visa versa
  15. One hand passing/shooting 50 times each hand (start with hand close to the stick head…as you get better and stronger move your hand down the stick shaft)…experiment
  16. Behind the back 50 times each hand
  17. Develop you own routine: if space is big enough jog down the wall while passing. Jog while catching to the right then reverse. Behind the head catching. Bounce pass catching.
  18. Pass and catch with the wall by having the ball being either passed or caught in an unconventional manner or less than perfect spot. Less than perfect passes happen in EVERY game…get ready. Be the best you can be…… regardless of conditions. ¼ cradle repeat 50 times; then 50 times weak hand

Don't put your stick down!

WALL BALL is one of the best things you can do to improve catching, throwing, and shooting. All you need is a wall, your stick, and a ball.


Improves:

  • Accuracy
  • Stick Skills
  • Passing
  • Shooting
  • Catching
  • Dodging
  • Conditioning
  • Hand Eye Coordination

Strengthens:

  • Wrists
  • Forearms
  • Body Trunk
  • Core
  • Shoulders
  • Legs


For Best Results:

  1. Find a flat brick or concrete wall at least 10 feet high, the longer the better. You have permission to use the big outside wall of the gym at Barlow, the one that faces the septic field.
  2. Every drill that you do — do it with both hands.
  3. Stand 5-7 yards away from the wall.
  4. Practice this routine at least 4-5 times per week.
  5. Each practice session should be at least 20 minutes. If you finish all drills in less than 20 minutes, repeat starting with the drill that challenged you the most.
  6. Use your ipod!
  7. Have fun!


Wall Ball Drills:

  1. Quick Stick with no cradle.  (50 right, 50 left.)
  2. One hand Quick Stick, no cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  3. Quick Stick, change hands each time you throw the ball while the ball is in the air, no cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  4. Both hand catch and cradle, with one quick cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  5. One hand catch and cradle, with one quick cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  6. Face Dodge: Catch, face dodge, throw. (50 right, 50 left.)
  7. Split Dodge: Throw right, catch right. Split dodge to left hand, throw left, catch left. Split back to right hand.  (50 right, 50 left.)
  8. Cross handed, weak side. (50 right, 50 left.) “Cross handed” means stick in right hand on the left side of body, or stick in left hand on right side of body. One quick cradle each time.
  9. Behind the back. (50 right, 50 left).
  10. Pass and Catch on the move, side to side.  (Go for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, repeat 3 times.)
  11. Develop your own drill.  Be creative and make sure you use both hands
