Attack Tips for Lacrosse

Don't dodge if there is an open man. Don't hold the ball long unless you are planning a dodge. Keep it moving with quick, short passes.

  • Make your defenseman play you and you alone every second you are in the game. Keep moving all the time so that he must center his attention on you and not be in position to help out his fellow defensemen.

  • If an attackman is being ridden hard and can't dodge or get away - the nearest man on each side goes to help him.

  • Never try to force in, with the ball or by a pass if the defense is drawn in. Pull them out first.

  • Never stand so close together that one man can cover two attack men.
