The lacrosse cool down is an important piece to your workout routine. Many coaches know to warm up and stretch at the beginning of a work out but few remember or know that it is very important to also cool down.
The Lacrosse cool down is an oportunity for your body to recover and start the healing process that needs to occur following a hard work out. The cool down is just that excersise that starts hard and tapers off to slow easy amount effort.
I like to do some half speed sprints or a light jog around the box. Just keep it nice and easy. Let your kids recover in a slow controlled pace. After the cool down process it is good to do some light stretching as well to end your practices. Get in the habbit of cooling down and you will find fewer injuries and sore muscles the following day.
