More Three Man Stick Drills

 

Once players are in groups of three for Three Man Two Ball, you can add in these drills to keep the flow of stick handling drills

 

On the sideline:  All of these drills must be done with both hands and can also be done switching hands after each skill.  Each drill should last no more than a few minutes. 

  • Three Man Handles
    • In a line of three, the second player rolls a GB out for the first player.  That player runs out, gets the GB, circles out and passes back to the second player in line.  He then immediately breaks out for an over the shoulder pass from the second player.  He catches the pass, rounds back and passes back to the second player who catches the ball and immediately rolls it toward the first player who scops it up and then throws it to the last player in line.  The last player then starts the drill over by rolling the ball out to the first player in line...
  • Ground Balls Away
    • In a line of three players, the second player rolls a ball out for the first player in line.  The first player runs out, scoops the ground ball, circles out and passes to the third player in line who rolls the ball out for what was the second player in line.
  • Over the Shoulders
    • In a line of three players, the first player breaks out and catches an over the shoulder pass from the second player in line.  He catches the ball, circles back and throws back to the last player in line who repeats the drill.
  • Competitive ground Balls
    • One player of the three rolls a ground ball out for the other two to battle over.  The winner carries the ball back to the line and immediately rolls the ball out for the loser and the original roller.  They fight over the ball and the drill continues non stop. 

 

From the End Line:

With players in three lines across the end line, they move down the length of the field passing in a number of ways.  Drill can be run with either hands, switching, with Canadian off hands, behind the backs, or shovel passes.  Pick two or three things and change it up each time this drill is done.  To keep players from boredom, go up and down field no more than two or three times.  Or do half fields to get more skills in.  This drill should last no more than seven or eight minutes.

 

  • Weave
    • Middle player throws to an outside player and runs around behind him as he catches the ball, moves to the middle, then throws to the other outside player and runs back around him.  They continue this weave as they run down the field.
  • Monkey in the Middle
    • As three players run down the field, the player in the middle receives a pass from an outside player and returns the pass.  The player then turns to the other outside player, recives and returns a pass.  This continues all the way down the field.
  • Over Passes
    • Player in the middle receives and returns a pass from an outside player. The outside player then makes an over pass tot he other outside player who catches the ball and immediately feeds it to the inside player who returns it back.  That outside player then makes a return over pass to the original outside player.  This pattern continues down the field.
  • Shuffles
    • Using any of the same pattern as above, players shuffle instead of run.
  • Backwards Runs
    • Using any of the patterns above, the players run backwards instead of running forwards.

    • Coaches and injured players should be at varying places down the sideline with balls ready to pass back in to replace dropped balls or missed passes to keep the drill running and touches maximized.
