Practice Drills

Scooping fundamentals
Scooping Fundamentals (For Right Handed Scooping):

1. Hands shoulder width apart.
2. When they see the ball on the ground they yell “Ball”. When the ball is
scooped they yell “Break”. If they don’t yell these then consider having the\
whole team does 3-5 push-ups as a gentle reminder.
3. As they approach the ball they should get their Right foot as close as possible
to the ball. This gets their body over the ball and protects the head of the
stick from checks by defensive players.
4. Left hand should be at the knee or below. “Scrape the knuckles”
5. After scooping they should accelerate (to avoid the defender catching them),
bring the stick up to their face, and turn in a counterclockwise arc.
6. Turning in an arc is important for younger players who hold the stick out in
front after scooping because they haven’t mastered the skill of bringing the stick
up to the face immediately after scooping.

7. You can tell the kids to “Scoop it”; “Kiss it” (bring it to face); “Hear it”
the stick to the ear and protect it.
8. For Left handed scooping the Right hand will be by the knee and they will
turn in a clockwise arc.

Wall Ball Drill 


  1. All drills must be performed with both hands.
  2. Any wall (or pitch back) will work, but a smooth concrete wall at least 10 feet tall is the best surface.
  3. Use your gloves when performing this routine.
  4. Stand about five yards from the wall for most drills.
  5. Perform this routine 4 or 5 times a week for 15 to 20 minutes and your stick skills will improve a great deal in a very short period …..When throwing focus hard on a specific point on the wall.
  6. Drills
    1. Right hand quick stick – 50 times – Move closer 2ft choke up on stick aim high.. ball does not bounce (left hand)
    2. Right hand throw and catch – throw ball into wall and it bounces back (right hand)
    3. Right hand throw and catch – throw ball into ground, ball bounces off wall and you catch it in the air (left hand) ….
    4. Split dodge- throw right, catch right, split dodge to hand, throw left, catch left, split dodge back to right hand – 50 times
    5. Right hand throw left hand catch – Left to Right – 50 times
    6. Face dodge or Roll Dodge Right Hand throw and catch 50 times
    7. Throw on the run….throw 50 times..both left and right

     NOTE: This routine takes 15 to 20 minutes. Work both hands equally….KEEP IT FUN!
