Shooting in the Backyard – Video

Posted: May 22, 2011 by Paul Rai in Alberta Lacrosse, Box Lacrosse, Drills, The Lacrosse Program, Video

About 5 years ago I bought a 10 x 10 x 10 golf cage so the kids could shoot lacrosse balls and pucks.  The golf cage was awesome as we would spend hours out there shooting and having competitions.  It would get intense as the kids would try to beat each other.  There is no doubt that the extra shooting was helping them improve and even more important is I got them off the PS3.  Well 5 years later the golf cage has fallen apart and I have had to take all the spare parts and string a shooting cage together.  The netting is still in good shape, but the poles have seen better days.  I need to get through this summer and then I will get a new cage next year.  As you can see we put down a patch of carpet in front of the cage because we turned the grass into dirt.  Throw in the rebounder and what we have is a little bit of lacrosse heaven in the backyard.  I have been know to go out and rip some balls just to burn of some tension.  Not the prettiest backyard, but I love it.  I don’t think my wife is as fond of the yard, but at least she knows where the boys are.  If you are interested in helping your child or yourself with shooting then invest in the cage.  It costs about $275 and can be ordered online.  Great investment and a lot of fun.  We definitely got our moneys worth.
