"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 on the run are we want to make our momentum carry us towards the goal and as opposed to shooting stationary, we want to make sure our hands are really up and away, as we're approaching the goal we want to hold our stick behind our head, and it's more of a trunk rotation motion than it is your arms which is more shooting stationary. So as we're receiving the ball, again, we want to receive with soft hands and keep our feet moving towards our target. As we approach our target we should hide our stick behind our head to make it harder for the goalie to track and then again, we'll step with our opposite foot towards the goal, move our shoulder towards the goal, and shoot with much more of a trunk rotation. After your shot, you want to make sure to maintain your footwork and keep your feet moving toward the goal in the event of a rebound or a shot off the pipe. And that's the basics of the shooting drill. Again, this drill can be set up from anywhere on the field to stimulate the different shots you'll get during the actual game. "
