RELAX 2016 Spring Registration! (Note: Tryout update)

RELAX Parents-

If you haven't done so already, please register ASAP!!!

We know it seems early, but lot of preparation goes into getting ready for the season, none of which can get accomplished until we know how many players we have and how many teams we have. We also have a league deadline we have to meet, so please do not delay, and REGISTER NOW. 

*Tryouts will be held Saturday, March 5th at Joel Barlow. When registration numbers are finalized, we will have a better idea of which teams will need to hold try outs. 

 

For players in Grades 4-8, if your child’s uniform from last season still fits, you are all set.  If you need to order a larger jersey or shorts, you can do so when you register.


For players in Grade 2&3, their first new RELAX uniform is included in your registration fee. When you register, you will be asked to indicate what size is needed.


For players in Grades K-1, a uniform will be issued to your child and then collected at the end of the season.

 

Practice begins March 12th for Grades 2-8 and April 2nd for Grades K-1.

 

Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions.

Don't put your stick down!

WALL BALL is one of the best things you can do to improve catching, throwing, and shooting. All you need is a wall, your stick, and a ball.


Improves:

  • Accuracy
  • Stick Skills
  • Passing
  • Shooting
  • Catching
  • Dodging
  • Conditioning
  • Hand Eye Coordination

Strengthens:

  • Wrists
  • Forearms
  • Body Trunk
  • Core
  • Shoulders
  • Legs


For Best Results:

  1. Find a flat brick or concrete wall at least 10 feet high, the longer the better. You have permission to use the big outside wall of the gym at Barlow, the one that faces the septic field.
  2. Every drill that you do — do it with both hands.
  3. Stand 5-7 yards away from the wall.
  4. Practice this routine at least 4-5 times per week.
  5. Each practice session should be at least 20 minutes. If you finish all drills in less than 20 minutes, repeat starting with the drill that challenged you the most.
  6. Use your ipod!
  7. Have fun!


Wall Ball Drills:

  1. Quick Stick with no cradle.  (50 right, 50 left.)
  2. One hand Quick Stick, no cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  3. Quick Stick, change hands each time you throw the ball while the ball is in the air, no cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  4. Both hand catch and cradle, with one quick cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  5. One hand catch and cradle, with one quick cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  6. Face Dodge: Catch, face dodge, throw. (50 right, 50 left.)
  7. Split Dodge: Throw right, catch right. Split dodge to left hand, throw left, catch left. Split back to right hand.  (50 right, 50 left.)
  8. Cross handed, weak side. (50 right, 50 left.) “Cross handed” means stick in right hand on the left side of body, or stick in left hand on right side of body. One quick cradle each time.
  9. Behind the back. (50 right, 50 left).
  10. Pass and Catch on the move, side to side.  (Go for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, repeat 3 times.)
  11. Develop your own drill.  Be creative and make sure you use both hands
