Screen Shot 2019-01-18 at 4.34.24 PM.pngThe Indoor Practice Lacrosse Ball have a soft, squishy foam core weighting 2.5 oz and comes in Pink or White. These are great for indoor practices and player development. Weighing half the weight of a regulation lacrosse NOCSAE/SEI ball at 2.5 oz, they are a low risk training tool. Meaning these are not going to cause injury or hurt if a pass is missed and makes contact with someone. At 2.5 oz the user will still be able to feel the ball in the cross making it perfect not only for advanced players, to develop soft hands, but also beginner players that don’t have the strength to get the regulation ball out of their stick. Coaches also use these balls in their goalie trainings. The foam core allows goal tenders to take a lot of shots at a variety of speeds without the risk of injury. The light weight nature of the ball trains the goaltenders to have soft hands when making the save to control the rebounds. These are great for any age or skill level.
