How to Shoot from a Stationary Position | Lacrosse


Hi, I’m Taylor Nissi, Director of Operations
for Game Breaker Lacrosse. I’m here today with Nick Schmidt who’s one
of our great regional directors. Please visit our website www.laxcamps.com. The important things to remember when shooting
from a stationary position are a) how you set yourself up to receive the ball. You want to be in an athletic stance, slight
bend at the knees, hands about 10-12 inches apart and have your stick out ready to go. As we catch the ball we want to receive it
deep, which means catch it back so that it’s around our ear or our head. We don’t want to reach out and snap at the
ball because that’s going to take more time to get your hands back here in a shooting
position. So what we want to do is anticipate the ball
coming, catch it with soft hands, and as we’re shooting we want to step with our foot towards
the goal and our shoulder towards the goal. As we’re shooting, we’re following through,
bringing out stick past our knee. This drill can be done from anywhere on the
field to simulate shooting from the attack position, the midfield position or any other
variation you’d like to use.

    Where are the gloves man? You don't play in a game without gloves.

    Then when you play in a game you wouldn't be used to playing with them. You should always wear gloves.
