1.) Practice Shooting Goals - Improve accuracy and delivery by practicing goal shots over and over at home. Use a Bownet Lacrosse Goal and your favorite lacrosse stick to log some hours in the backyard delivery shot after shot. For bonus points, try approaching the goal from different angles. Getting familiar with getting the ball in the goal without obstruction sounds simple, but it will go a long way toward improving your on-field performance.
2.) Run - It's no surprise that lacrosse players run a lot. Chasing the ball up and down the field takes a lot of energy and being able to keep up is a key component to becoming a power player. Start with a brisk jog around the block or pick up your stick and set up a few field cones to do shorter back-and-forth drills in the yard. Improving your stamina off the field can only improve it on the field as well.
3.) Wall Ball - No partner, no problem. Wall ball allows you to practice your lacrosse skills while flying solo. All you need is a wall, a ball and your stick. Hit the ball against the wall, catch it and repeat. Mix things up by trying a combination of short and long passes, ground balls and attacks.
4.) Work on Hand-Eye Coordination - You may think you're already coordinated enough, but the truth is that everyone can work on their hand-eye coordination. Go from a good lacrosse player to a great lacrosse player by learning how to work the ball, even when it's not right in front of you. One of the easiest ways to do this is to simply bend over so you're looking down and then bounce the ball against the ground off to the side of you and catch it in your hand. Repeat the process over and over again, gaining speed as you go. The ball should be being bounced in your peripheral vision, not directly in front of you. This way, you'll train your eyes and improve your hand-eye coordination at once.
5.) Practice with a Friend - Just because you're working out at home doesn't mean you can't practice with a friend. Portable lacrosse equipment from Bownet Sports makes it easy to take your practices anywhere, so you can set up a goal and a crease in a backyard and work on passes, blocking and more. Working with a friend makes any at-home practice more fun and more beneficial.
