How to Shoot from a Stationary Position in Lacrosse

Learn how to perfect your stationary shooting from the pros at Game Breaker Lacrosse Camps in this Howcast video.


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 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.
