Fall Ball Wall Ball Warrior!

Team NorCal Lacrosse Wall Ball Program

A WALL BALL WARRIOR is a Lacrosse player who is dedicated to improving his/her stick work through individual workouts outside of regular practice and games.  

Workouts are done on a player’s own time so practices can be devoted to team play.  A WALL BALL WARRIOR is able to play equally well both LEFTY and RIGHTY.

The Spring is your chance to become a WALL BALL WARRIOR.  Players with the most WALL BALL WARRIOR workouts earned for completing the individual workout will rule the field and be recognized with a special award at the beginning of the Summer season.  

At our first practice of the Spring, we will measure EVERY NorCal players ability to complete as many throws as possible with each hand (right and left) in one minute.  We will PUBLISH publicly those results on this web site. This should serve as motivation for every player to work as hard as possible at Wall Ball.   No one should be surprised that stick skills have a direct impact on playing time at every level in the game.  You, and ONLY you, have complete control over that.  

We will regularly remeasure you to see how you are improving.  We have cool helmet stickers for people that surpass certain thresholds (20/20 - meaning 20 throw per minute with the right hand, and 20 throws per minute with the left hand), 30/30, 40/40, 50/50 and higher.  You ARE NEVER too old or too good for Wall Ball.  

The following WALL BALL WARRIOR workout should take no more than 30 minutes per day:

  1. 50 Righty throws, Righty catches, aim for the box area or target on a wall from ~ 15 ft away
  2. 50 Lefty throws, Lefty catches, aim for the box area or target on a wall from ~ 15 ft away
  3. 50 Quick Sticks – 25 each side, Righty and Lefty
  4. 25 Catch Righty, Split Left and Throw Left (from ~ 15 ft away)
  5. 25 Catch Lefty, Split Right and Throw Right (from ~ 15 ft away)
  6. 50 fake Left, throw Left; fake Right, throw Right (25 each side)

Total Repetitions = 250

Be a Team NorCal Wall Ball Warrior!

We say it over and over and over – stick skills are improved by players working on their own.

I would highly recommend your son practice a minimum of 5x/week for 30 minutes against the wall. I PROMISE RESULTS IF YOUR SON PUTS IN THE TIME.

Check out the video's to the left to see how it is done!

You will see exponential improvement in your son's game if he is determined and is dedicated to wall ball.  If he only does it 1x/week, and never seems to get around to it, he will not improve over the course of a season.
