Signature Lacrosse Wall Ball Essentials

One reason that wall ball is such a great lacrosse training activity is because you don’t need any fancy equipment or other lacrosse players to work on your skills. Below are the essentials that you need for a great lacrosse wall ball session that’s sure to help improve your stick skills

  • Signature Premium Lacrosse Balls - play wall ball with a lacrosse ball that isn’t going to fall apart, lose its grip, or ruin your training. Signature Premium lacrosse balls are more consistent and last longer than other lacrosse balls because they are put through such rigorous testing to withstand whatever you throw at them or whatever you throw them at.
  • Signature Premium Soft Lacrosse Balls - if you are around windows, young lacrosse players, easily broken objects, or stuck indoors, the Signature Premium soft lacrosse ball is your answer. Made to mimic a real lacrosse ball with a super-soft construction, the Signature Premium soft lacrosse ball is the best indoor lacrosse ball for wall ball.
  • A Wall- picking out a great wall for wall ball isn’t as easy as it sounds. Look for smooth bricks or cement blocks that don’t have deep mortar grooves between them. Variations in the surface of the wall can make for wild bounces that ruin your ability to properly train. Rebounders and bounce-backs work very well if you have access to one.
  • Confidence- you need to approach playing wall ball with a great attitude or it’s going to be a waste of your time. Yes, you are going to drop the ball. No, that doesn’t make you a bad lacrosse player. Yes, you need to keep going and finish the routine to get better. Don’t get discouraged.
