Hi, I'm Taylor Nissi, Director of Operations for Game Breaker Lacrosse. I'm here today with Nick Schmidt who's one of our great regional directors. Please visit our website The first drill I like to call the hat drill, the purpose of this is to practice the slide and recovery aspect of team defense. When we slide out the main thing we want to remember is when we're approaching we want to approach under control. The one thing my college coach used to tell us was to come out big, big, chop, chop. And what that means is when we're closing the distance, we'll take two large steps and then two under control steps to get our feet back under us. So it would be big, big, chop, chop. Then we're in a good athletic position to play defense. After we're out here in our main position, we'll then throw a poke check, drop step opening up to where the ball is being passed. And then have our stick up in the passing lane, to help knock down any passes, and get back into the crease to help out on defense. And that drill is set up with five cones set up around the perimeter. And one cone on the crease. So the first guy will go out from the cone on GLE, come out to the crease, fire out to the cone, come back and recover, fire out the next cone, come back and recover. And that's the hat drill.
