How to Play Lacrosse : Passing the Ball in Lacrosse


This is Tamir Elterman on behalf of expert
village.com. In this clip I am going to be talking about passing. Passing with stance.
To begin you want to stand facing the player who you intend to throw the ball to. Your
feet are offset so if you are left-handed your right foot is in front of the left and
if you are right-handed then your left foot is in front of the right. This position is
similar to throwing a ball in possession. You want to rotate at the waist so that your
shoulders become perpendicular to the player whom you intend to throw to. Hand position,
your top hand is positioned near the head of the stick and the thumb of this hand is
extended up the shaft to help with accuracy. Your bottom hand is located at the bottom
of the stick and serves as a pivot point for the throw. Throwing motion, you want to pull
the stick back so the top hand is positioned above the shoulder by about 6 inches. Be sure
that you don’t bring the head of the stick too far back like a catapult because that
can result in the ball jumping out of the stick behind you. The top hand and arm push
the stick forward in the direction of your teammate. Your bottom hand provides the power
for the pass. Your hand and arm about 6 inches from the body across your waist and the bottom
hand access a hinge or a pivot and moves back towards the body slightly as the top hand
and arm extend forward. The speed of the action determines the speed of the pass.

    I'm new to lacrosse, but in others sports where you handle a "stick", like in baseball or kendo, you never put your thumb on the shaft because it can seriously hurt it once you hit something. Isn't that also a risk in lacrosse? BTW: It's not baseball OR lacrosse, it's baseball AND lacrosse – baseball is a great game, too!

    @johnpm418 Yeah, but gloves don't help you if your thumb flips back in a 90 degree angle, isn't it? I've been playing for a while now, and it still seems dangerous (and even almost useless) to me to leave the thumb on the shaft.
