Tip from Coach Seeberan (U11 Boys)
In his best-selling book “Outliers,” author Malcolm Gladwell hypothesizes that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to truly master a skill. That means it would take someone more than a year practicing 24 hours a day to master stick skills. But here’s the catch (pun intended): Stick skills are the basis of everything you need to be successful in lacrosse. It doesn’t matter if you are the fastest or strongest player if you can’t catch and throw. Stick skills are the great equalizer. Solution: Twenty minutes a day of just you, your stick, a ball and the wall. These wall-ball routines apply for players in all positions and both genders. Doing the math on this one will get you 40 hours of practice between now and the start of the season in March. Each day, do each of the eight exercises below for 2 minutes, 30 seconds. A long way off from Gladwell’s position on practice, but I guarantee you’ll see a difference. So load up the iPod and hit the wall today.
