RELAX Parents and Players,

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Words can not express how excited we are that we can finally put 2020 behind us. We are very optimistic that 2021 will be a better year (how could it not be?!). 

I wanted to reach out and give everyone a little update on the Spring 2021 season. Currently, we are waiting to hear from CONNY (Connecticut/New York Youth Lacrosse) about whether or not we will be proceeding with our spring season. I am very hopeful that we will be getting good news in the near future! That being said, we are planning as if we will have a season. Normally, registration would be open right now but with all the uncertainty, we are holding off until February to open spring registration and game scheduling.

We are securing indoor field space for the end of January/February and March for all ages groups for anyone who is interested in knocking off the rust and getting in a couple of practices/clinics before the season starts. These are completely optional, so if you do not feel comfortable sending your kids to a public space yet, that is perfectly OK! Below is a TENTATIVE schedule. We are still waiting to hear from RELAX coaches as to whether this schedule works for them. There may be some changes so please wait until an official email is sent out before putting anything into your calendar! NOTHING IS SET IN STONE.

Danbury Dome Practice/Clinic Schedule. (all times are 6-7pm)

January 25th (7th and 8th grade boys and girls)

February 1st (5th and 6th grade boys and girls)

February 8th (7th and 8th grade boys and girls)

February 22nd (5th and 6th grade boys and girls)

March 1st (K-4  boys and girls)

March 8th (7th and 8th grade boys and girls

March 15th (5th and 6th grade boys and girls)

March 22nd (K-4 boys and girls)

 

Things will undoubtable be changing through out the next few months so we ask that you try and be as flexible and as understanding as possible. I hope to have the winter schedule confirmed by the end of this week with a registration set up. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out anytime (adamlanehart@gmail.com).

 

I hope all of you and your familes are safe and healthy. We will be back on the field soon!

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
