    8 Agility Ladder Exercises for Lacrosse Training

    Get those fancy feet ready for some fast-paced and high-energy exercises so they can be ready to storm the field and take victory.  If this is your first time doing agility ladder drills for lacrosse, we’ll start with the basics on how to use one and the proper form.

    How to Use an Agility Ladder

    When doing ladder drills, there are a few things to remember:

    • Stay on your toes and pick up your feet immediately after they touch the ground
    • If you are having trouble with a pattern, slow down and speed up after you have mastered it
    • Once you feel confident in your steps, keep your back straight and don’t stare down.  You won’t be able to do it on the field, so you want to break the habit of doing it here
    • Don’t skip any of the squares if you’re not supposed to on the drill
    • Try not to step on the ladder
