High School Times
Attackmen should complete at 2:20 or less.
Middies should complete at 2:30 or less.
Poles should complete at 2:45 or less.
U15 times: attack 2:50, middies 3:00, poles 3:15
U13 times: attack 3:15, middies 3:25, poles 3:30
U11/U9 times: short sticks 4:30, poles 5:00
A very focused goalie should be able to complete the test with a short stick as well. Use a middie or defenders time as your first benchmark.
What happens if my child cant complete the task on time?
He or she needs to work on their game because they can improve their game.
He or she has a throwing problem, a catching problem or both. You cant complete a timed wall ball test unless you throw the ball hard. You cannot throw the ball hard unless your confident in yourself. You wont be confident in yourself unless you have put the time on your own.
One of the seven throws may be giving them greater difficulty than the others. Dedicate extra practice time to that particular throw.
Stick skills are the great equalizer in our sport. An average athlete with great stick skills is a more valuable asset than the best athlete with poor stick skills.
