Stick Skills are incredibly important for the Young Lacrosse Player. This year, players with the Petaluma Youth Lacrosse Club will commit to a season long competition to see how much you can improve your stick skills. You will learn to know and love the 'Wall Ball Warrior Workouts'
River Cat Lacrosse WALL BALL WARRIOR
Individual Work Out
A WALL WARRIOR is a River Cat Lacrosse player who is dedicated to improving his/her stick work through individual workouts outside of regular practice and games. These workouts can be completed by playing catch with a parent or friend, or in front of a wall or bounce back.
Workouts are done on a player’s own time so practices can be devoted to team play. A WALL WARRIOR is able to play equally well both LEFTY and RIGHTY.
This season is your chance to become a River Cat WALL WARRIOR and earn helmet decals, and special spiritwear prizes for completing individual workouts achieving certain levels of performance. Players with the most WALL WARRIOR decals earned for completing the individual workout will rule the field and be recognized with a special award at the end of the season.
