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. To become a great shooter in lacrosse it's important to always remember that there's other people practicing as well so you gotta practice more, practice harder and practice with more variety. It's important to have a lot of repititions and focus on those fundamentals. But as you become more and more comfortable with shooting make sure you're working on shooting from different angles, different positions on the field, out of your dodges, stationary and work on all the various shots you can. And if you're really dedicated you'll want to practice in your free time as well. One of my favorite things was to take old empty coke cans and tie them up in the goal and use them for target practice with my friends. And the most important part is to remember to always have fun while we're practicing.
