“Sickest goal ever”? Decide for yourself
It’s been described as “the sickest goal ever.” We will let you be the judge of that.
Lax Lesson of the Week: Stickwork Drill
An uptempo creative stickwork drill that consists of high reps forces your players to communicate and keep their head on a swivel. Coaches, be creative with how you want your players to move the ball, i.e. gb’s, behind the back, etc. Have fun with it!
Lax Lesson of the Week: Weave Shooting
A great drill that hones in on both stickwork and shooting. Players weave and cut around each other for crisp passes and hard shots.
Lax Lesson of the Week: Regi
Another break down of a collegiate level play out of the LaxLessons.com Offensive Playbook.
Lax Lesson of the Week: Upstate
A savvy quick hit play that not only looks good but if ran with proper timing and spacing will lead to that big last second goal.
Lax Lesson of the Week: The Rocker Step
The Rocker Step Dodge is another dodge from behind the cage. Works best when used off of the Question Mark Dodge. It’s just as important to be a step ahead mentally on your defensemen as it is physically.
Lax Lesson of the Week: Offensive Playbook – Treo
Ran out of an offset 1-2-3 set. A longer play to execute with a fair amount of ball and player movement. Tell your players to keep their heads up because one of the three players cutting off of screens are bound to be open.
Lax Lesson of the Week: X Step Shooting
Video breakdown of proper footwork mechanics for a harder shot. Other sports know it as a crow-hop, here at LaxLessons we call it the X-Step.
Lax Lesson of the Week: The Question Mark Dodge
A video breakdown of one of the best dodges from X. Use your speed and change of direction to create a high percentage shot for yourself.
