Halfy Ground Balls – Hockey

This drill is run just like Halfy Ground Balls, but each player is to flip (or “goose”) the ball to open space before picking it up.  Too often in youth lacrosse players are bunched up trying to pick up the ground ball.  When there are multiple sticks in at the ball, it is best to get the ball into open space and go after it.  This is particularly effective on a face off where there typically are not many players around the ball.
