LAX ALL DAY! BALL to the WALL!

Wall Ball Drill


Below we have provided some basic drills to keep your athlete in great shape while maintaining their skills.  

For Best Results:

  1. Find a flat brick or concrete wall at least 10 feet high, the longer the better

  2. Every drill that you do - do it with both hands

  3. Always wear gloves when you are performing your routine - you play with gloves so why not practice with gloves

  4. Stand 5-7 yards away from the wall

  5. Perform this routine at least 4-5 times per week

  6. Each routine should be at least 20 minutes in length- if you finish all drills in less than 20 minutes, repeat drills starting with the drill that challenged you the most

  7. Have fun!
