- Offensive Techniques
46CLUB LAX Points
Becoming a better lacrosse player has everything to do with learning to play with and without the ball. Duke University Head Coach John Danowski presents an excellent skill program for the spring, in anticipation of the upcoming season. The skills in this lacrosse DVD are applicable to any offense in Lacrosse. He begins by demonstrating basic moves for the specific areas of the field for dodging (top, wings or behind). Each of these areas is broken down into right or left, or high or low. From the top, the split dodge and the merry-go-round move are taught. The wing is divided into high wing and low wing. On the wing, the goal is to attack the top foot of the defender when attacking. Options are the speed dodge and combo cut. Dodges from behind are keyed on the person with the ball making things happen. Speed, strength and change of direction are keys to scoring from behind. The step away, double and roll moves are universal techniques that are used behind the net and can improve any offense. Dragging the double is another move from behind the net. The objective of the step back/throw back and roll back/throw back are moves to increase movement away from the cage. 43 minutes.
