Youth Lacrosse Night at Woodson HS

AYL will be playing a big part at WT Woodson Youth Night Friday April, 24th.

Our U9 Boys teams will be playing during the Varsity Half-time...families please RSVP to your team managers ASAP because the boys’ names will be announced and we need a final participant list.

All AYL players should wear their jerseys for free entry to the games with a paying parent. You can see the Woodson Youth Night Flyer HERE. 

Ball Boy Volunteers:   Coach Hilliard asks that volunteers for the JV game arrive at the Woodson stadium by 5:00pm and 6:45pm for the Varsity game. Please come on the track and meet directly behind the bench area. Coach Hilliard will meet with players to discuss their duties at these times. Please wear your jersey, bring a stick, helmet and gloves.

A list of volunteers’ names will be at the gate. The JV game should be over by 7:00 and the varsity game should be done by 8:45.

DON'T FORGET TO WEAR YOUR AYL JERSEYS!

4 Quick Drills to Improve Your Passing & Shooting

Breakout Lacrosse - Wall Ball Workout

Wall Ball can improve your overall skills by allowing you to perform passing / shooting mechanics needed to be in top form.  The benefit of using a passing / shooting wall is the ability to execute multiple repetitions without the aid of a teammate.

 

Breakout Lacrosse - Wall Ball Workout

  • Start by standing 10-15 feet away from the wall using your dominant hand and complete 50 passes
  • Follow up by using your non-dominant hand and complete 50 passes
  • ​Next test your ability to catch and change hands to throw and complete 50 passes
  • Complete your workout by moving closer to the wall and competing 20 "quick-stick" passes with your dominant and non-dominant hand 

 

Training notes on fundamental passing / shooting mechanics:

  • Keep your arms and elbows up when throwing overhand passes
  • Step with the opposite foot toward target to aim
  • Twist torso and hips to generate extra power
  • Follow through with your stick to direct pass
