Youth Drills

New March 3, 2015

These drills were presented by Matt Hogan at the Hoganlax.com Clinic in Annapolis in January 2015.  Some groundballs drills, stickwork drills, and a defensive drill.  


Individual, group, and team defensive drills to help your team become better defensively, from individual footwork to team positioning. These drills build upon one another.


Drills designed to assist you in providing guidance and patience to your team when clearing.


Various drills to assist your individual players and teams most important aspect of their game: stickwork.  Some are position specific while others can be completed by the entire team.


These are like bread and butter; needed every day.  Various groundball drills instead of the 1 v 1, and 2 v 3. Learning body positioning, body awareness and leverage. However, most importantly: after you pick up the ball, throw it to someone!

Other Drills

These are drills that we use that really don’t fit into a category.  Sideways, Tambo and UVa are what we call Make the Next Play drills. Have patience with these.  6 v 0 and 7 v 0 are offensive and defensive strategies of what you do when the ball goes on the ground.
