Shoot n Scoop Has Young Players Clamoring for More

The Shoot n Scoop system is a custom-designed bucket topped with a small version of a lacrosse net. After a player shoots the ball into the net, it falls into the bucket, then rolls out the bottom and back into play.


“When can we use the Shoot n Scoops, Coach?”

A group of parents lined the high school field and watched in astonishment as their second-grader lacrosse players nagged the coach to bring out their favorite training device. They wouldn’t let it go. As the kids proceeded through drills like “Steal the Bacon,” “Sharks and Minnows,” “King of The Hill” and relay races, they clamored for more.

Much like it did at the US Lacrosse Convention four years ago, Shoot n Scoop stole the show. The product, developed by Bob Krumme and Jamey Cappello of Pelham, N.Y., is a custom-designed bucket topped with a small version of a lacrosse net. After a player shoots the ball into the net, it falls into the bucket, then rolls out the bottom and back into play. It’s simple, safe and addictive.

Krumme and Cappello, two youth lacrosse coaches turned entrepreneurs, debuted their invention at LaxCon in Baltimore in 2015. They became known as “the Shoot n Scoop guys.” Since then, the training goals have popped up around the country on lacrosse fields and in schools, gyms and backyards.

This year, Shoot n Scoop partnered with US Lacrosse to supply the goals for its TryLax clinics. Youth programs are using these units to enhance current drills, create new ones and play goalie-free small-sided games. 

“A picture is worth a thousand words,” Krumme said. “After a quick demonstration, players are instantly engaged and learning intuitively.”

 “The fun experience it delivers and the muscle memory it reinforces make it a highly effective teaching tool,” Cappello said.

Shoot n Scoop drill stations keep more players active. Check out these drills. They make teaching and learning lacrosse easier and fun.

“Trying to master many things at once can be overwhelming, but the Shoot n Scoop gets players excited,” said Matt Belson, president of Cohasset (Mass.) Youth Lacrosse and founder of Scoops Lacrosse. “It’s simple to use in our drills and creates a personal interaction with the instant reward of a ground ball.  As players focus on shooting or scooping, my ability to help them make small adjustments is greatly enhanced.”

As lacrosse grows and is introduced to new communities, be on the lookout for Shoot n Scoops to be a key teaching element, embracing the new small-ball evolution in youth lacrosse.
