A lot of people are under the impression that because you’re just throwing against a wall, it’s easy – but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Wall Ball is a game that can be played by anyone. It’s simple, easy to learn and all you need is a wall (or any vertical surface) and a ball.
Wall Ball allows players to work on fundamental skills like throwing, catching, scooping & cradling in an environment where it’s safe for beginners as well as advanced players. In addition to the physical benefits of Wall Ball training, there are also mental benefits as well such as improved focus & concentration that will carry over into other areas of your life.
What is Wall Ball Anyway?
So what is wall ball? Wall ball is exactly what it sounds like – an individual (or group) throwing a lacrosse ball up against a wall, and trying to catch it with gloves on. This will help you not only become better at catching, but also throw with more accuracy and power. As well as this, it’s also a great cardio workout! If you play catch for half an hour or so, and then follow that up with some other cardiovascular work (running/jumping rope etc), your heart will be pumping and you’ll be sweaty and exhausted. But who doesn’t love a little sweat after practice?
Wall ball is a great way to improve your throwing and catching skills. You can play wall ball by yourself or with a partner. To play wall ball by yourself, stand about six feet away from a wall and throw the ball against the wall. Catch the ball and then repeat. To play wall ball with a partner, stand about six feet away from each other and throw the ball back and forth.
The next step is to get your hands ready for catching the ball. The most effective way to do this is by throwing with one hand at a time, switching after every throw. You can also practice cradling into your stick, which will help you get comfortable getting low when you’re preparing for a shot on the field.
To make the throws harder, try throwing with your opposite hand. For example, if you’re right handed, throw the ball against the wall using your left hand. Make sure to stick to one hand at a time when catching the ball – then switch hands and repeat!
Another way to make it more difficult is by moving closer or further away from the wall. Make sure that the ball is hitting the wall at a high speed and that it’s not too easy for you to catch. After catching, turn around and throw the ball back at the wall right away without stopping.
As you get better at this drill, add an underhand or sidearm throw into your regular throws. Once you’re comfortable with all of these throws, you’ll be ready to take your skills to the lacrosse field! Wall ball is a great way to improve your throwing and catching skills.
