We’ve all heard it from and said it as coaches: “Hit the wall between practices!”
There is no question that playing wall ball will improve your stick skills, hand-eye coordination and feel for the ball. The real question is, how much do you want to improve? The answer lies in the consistency, variety and mechanics you apply to your wall-ball routine.
This month, I share a program that was handed down to me my freshman year in college by one of the all-time greats in our game, Syracuse University legend John Zulberti, also known as “Z.”
Zulberti was a four-time All-American attackman at ’Cuse and won two national championships, playing with the Gait brothers and Tom Marechek. He hails from perennial upstate New York powerhouse West Genesee High School, where lacrosse is a religion and they take great pride in their mastery of fundamentals.
