RELAX Spring Tryouts: Boys in 5th, 7th and 8th grade

Parents and Players,

There will be a try out for 5th, 7th, and 8th grade boys on March 2nd at the Danbury Sports Dome from 5-6 pm (6th graders will not try out at this time). If needed, another tryout date will be scheduled for a date TBD. Please arrive early so we can stretch and get going right at 5 pm. You must bring all required equipment (SNEAKERS, helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves, stick, mouth guard) as well as your numbered RELAX jersey from last season. If you do not have one yet, don't worry!

Also, there have been questions about players "switching positions". If you want to switch to a specific position (i.e defense to attack), that will be the position that you are evaluated at! If you have any questions please talk to your coach.

 

NOTE: CLEATS/FOOD/SPORTS DRINKS/CHEWING GUM ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE PLAYING SURFACE! 

If you have any questions regarding tryouts, please contact me ( )

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
