The ability to pass accurately is a difference maker in lacrosse. Here's a quick partner drill from Stephen Duffy, head coach of the MLL's Boston Cannons.

Partner Passing Drill

Stand 10 to 15 yards apart and play catch, making straight, crisp passes:

  • Catch and throw with right hand, repeat for reps then switch sides
  • Catch with right hand, split dodge and throw left; repeat for reps then switch sides
  • Catch with right hand, roll away while emphasizing stick protection and throw left; repeat for reps then switch sides
  • Quick stick right; repeat for reps then switch sides
  • Stick fake and throw; repeat for reps then switch sides
  • Catch left over the shoulder, roll away and throw left; repeat for reps then switch sides
  • One hand catch and pass with left hand; repeat for reps then switch sides

Sets/Reps: As many sets as desired x 50 each movement
