Play4TheCure Pink Night
Please come out and support our previous RELAXers, now Barlow Girls Lacrosse players at their Play4TheCure PINK NIGHT!
It will be a fun event you won't want to miss! 


It's this coming Thursday night at Joel Barlow High School’s Stadium.  

JV at 5 PM
Varsity will play at 6:30 PM

GREAT REASONS TO ATTEND:
 
  • It's for a great cause: the girls have dedicated their games to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research, and patient support.   All donations and proceeds will go to the National Foundation for Cancer Research.
  • It will be an exciting game:  our twice-SWC Champions and 2016 State Finalists will be playing neighboring Bethel.  
  • There will be lots of great food: "pink" baked goods, hamburgers, hot dogs, snacks and drinks!
  • There will be pink everywhere:  the Falcon Stadium and players will be dressed in pink for the occasion.  Why not wear something pink too?  
 
So please come out on Thursday and support the Barlow Girls’ Lacrosse teams and the National Foundation for Cancer Research!

Donations (big and small) will be accepted at the door or you can go to the Joel Barlow Girls Lacrosse Pink Night Fundraising Page:
 

Thanks,
Go Barlow!

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
