Hi, I’m Taylor Nissi, Director of Operations
for Game Breaker Lacrosse. I’m here today with Nick Schmidt who’s one
of our great regional directors. Please visit our website The
Alley Drill is a drill that we use to help work on our footwork, in particular, our drop
step and our body position in transition, or, for example, an attack man riding a defensive
player. The set up of the drill is to have the lines
in the alleys between the side line and the restraining box. Then we’ll set up a series of cones along
each side. The offensive player will carry the ball about
75% and the defensive player will use proper foot work as well as body position to drive
to each side line. As they approach the side line the defensive
player should be punching on their bottom hip to widen them out and then drop step to
open up and maintain that cushion between the offensive player and the defensive player. As they approach the other side line, the
defensive player will again push on their bottom, on their hip with their bottom hand
in drop step. And this will repeat about seven or eight
times as they go up the field. And that’s what we refer to as the alley drill.
