A wall rebounder is a piece of equipment used to help players maintain speed during a lacrosse game. It allows players to quickly redirect their momentum and change direction without disrupting their shooting motion. A wall rebounder can be made out of a rolled-up mat, which is much easier to carry on the field, or it can be something the player picks up. Lacrosse is a fast-paced sport and even small adjustments in momentum can change how well a player performs during game play.
The wall rebounder can be directly on the ground or put up on a wall. Usually, it is used to practice shooting without a goalie and at an angle that mimics game situations when you are off to the side of the goal. This equipment helps players get used to play in tight spaces because often a player will have to shoot from an angle where there is not much room for error. It will also train them to be aggressive in the air, which is a great quality for a player to have.
The Bank Shot
The bank shot is one of the most exciting shots in lacrosse because it requires players to have great hand-eye coordination and understanding of angles. The ball can be shot from outside the goal or within a certain distance from it. Even if the bank shot is within 10 feet from the goal, it will still require some courage to shoot at the goalie and make sure that they take away the bank. The rebounder then gets back out of position and allows their teammate to take advantage of an open shot on goal because they are afraid to stick their body in front of it. A bank shot requires a player to work on their ability to shoot with pace and accuracy, while getting better at moving around the goal to get around their defender.
The lay-up is another shot that will require some creativity and skill. That is because players need to know exactly where they are going to shoot the ball in order for this shot to work effectively. The lacrosse wall rebounder should be placed in such a way that it allows a player with good passing abilities to find an open teammate. If a player is offside at this point, it will most likely be called by the referee and result in a violation.
A slide rebounder is used to help players practice moving to the side and pulling off a shot quickly when the goalie leaves an open side of the goal. This is something that will not work unless a player has enough lacrosse stick control to redirect the ball in mid-air.
