Although team practices do not start until March, the season starts NOW! This is the time that you should be breaking out the stick, dusting it off, and getting the cobwebs out. It's time to start working on you individual stick skills, so you are ready to go when the season starts. The biggest obstacle we face as coaches is having to spend too much time on stick skills and not enough time teaching you how to play the game of lacrosse.
So, while there is still no snow on the ground, let's get going with some WALL BALL drills. All you need is a wall, a stick, your lacrosse gloves, a ball and about 20 minutes. Find a brick or concrete wall with no windows nearby. You chimney at your house might be a good spot, or go to one of the local schools. PCIS has a great wall ball wall where the gym is.

Also, keep an eye on the Coaches Corner throughout the season for more drills and info on tactics and strategies. I am hoping to make this a great resource for learning the game for both Parents and Players.
