Good Morning Families,
Just wanted to touch base since, the last emails came out. Right now, we are hoping to play again this year. Everything is still up in the air and will know more after the April 6th NCJLA board meeting. In the meantime, please stay safe. There are many things we can’t do but, there are still plenty of thing player can do to stay sharp and work on their skills.
Wall Ball is great but just standing there can get boring. So, make sure you move your feet and use both hands. Don’t just standing throwing with your strong hand. Encore has a good routine on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlIDfmiVWD8
Watch some games on Youtube. You can search games on Youtube. I just watched the 2004 National Championship game Navy vs Syracuse. It is amazing how the sport has changed since then. The Lacrosse Network channel on Youtube also has some great stuff to watch.
You can also watch the best players that are your age. Team USA U-15, U17, and U-19 games are also on Youtube.
Also, the PLL Academy Instructional Series has some drills you can do to improve your game. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNUOJo_m8-w2yPSIC5DLK1g
So, keep working as best you can, Stay safe and smart during this time of social distancing. Email or text me anytime even if you just want to say hi. I miss coaching these guys as much as they miss playing. I looked forward everyday to getting out on the field with them.
