Sixteen Lacrosse Defense Tips to Shut Down Your Opponent

Defense is hugely influenced by your ability to respond to the offensive player. Your goal is to keep your offensive player in front of you, as far away from the goal as possible.

How is your defensive game? Do attackers with quick feet blow by you? Are you losing time on the field because you just can not seem to be effective enough in the back?

Defense is tremendously hard. It seems like in any sport you play, whether it’s lacrosse or not, playing defense is a grind. For example, if you do your job and shut the other team down, that is what is expected of you. Good job. But, if you mess up, your mistakes are highlighted by a scoring opportunity for you opponent or worse, a goal.
