Eric Law’s 3 Easy Ways to Improve Your Sticks Skills at Home

One of the biggest differences between lacrosse and all other sports is instead of using our hands directly, we use a lacrosse stick.  Having good stick skills and being comfortable with the stick in your hands will automatically make you a better lacrosse player.  Like everything else in life, you need to practice to become better.  If you want to become a better player, here are just three things (other than wall ball) you can do to improve your stick skills while at home.

1. Start with a ball in your stick.  Toss the ball up above your head and catch it with your same hand.  Then put the stick in your off hand and do the same.  Once you start to get comfortable, you can throw the ball up with your strong hand and catch it with your off hand (See Image below).  Then throw it with your off hand and catch it with your strong hand.  If you get really good at this, then try doing different combinations of switching hands and not tossing the ball as high to make it harder on yourself.  The harder the combination the better!

2.  Try to stop the ball on the side of the head.  Also, bounce the ball on the side of your head and see how many you can get in a row.

3. Cradle with a ball.  If done inside, use a softer ball like a tennis ball. Cradle around the house switching hands and dodging different items (make sure this is ok with your parents!).  Remember magic hands!  One good way to practice cradling and protecting your stick is to stand in front of a mirror and if you are protecting your stick so well that your can’t see the stick, you’re doing it correctly!

Just having your stick in your hands will make you a better player. The more time spent with it, the more comfortable you will get, and better player you can become.   Practice good habits!!!  No spinning or twirling your sticks!

If you have any questions on any of these or any other way to get a better stick please feel free to contact me (Eric@CityLaxDenver.org) at any time!  Remember, you don’t become a better player overnight, it takes hours of perfect practice!!
