Watch as Coach Casey Dowd explains, and players demonstrate these faceoff groundball drills. The 1st drill is the Syracuse Groundball Ladder Drill which starts out as a walkthrough and builds up to full speed. The player in the middle picks up a ball using the left then the right hand and moves up the ladder. The 2nd drill is the Tripod Drill where the players stand over the ball with the stick in the right hand, pick up the ball and bring it to their face, then place the ball back down. The 3rd drill spaces the balls out with the players 5 yards away. They will run to the ball using both hands, then using one hand at the top of the stick and finally one hand at the bottom of the stick.
