Men's Lacrosse|Drill
Shooting drill that simulates the actions of pass-down, pick-down 2-man game. Start with a line with the balls located top-center-right and another line on the right wing. Mirror this setup on the left side. The top line will pass down to the wing, get depth and return to set a screen. Meanwhile, the wing man will ‘drift’ to get into a good dodging location to work from the screen. In this variation, the dodger works under the pick and feeds the picker who is rolling to the middle who finishes with a shot.
