5/18 TEAM MEETING RECAP
by posted 05/18/2020

Monday 5/18/20 Zoom team meeting recap:

 

Girls, great job on our lax quiz in the zoom meeting today!

To follow up on what we went over: 

 

1. The ABCD’s of defense :

APPROACH

BREAKDOWN your stance

CONTACT

DIRECT

 

Here are a few videos I’d like for you to watch- they are short...1-3 min ea!

2. When shooting - make sure you have your elbows up!!

No T-Rex 🦖 arms tucked in at the waist! 😆

OVERHAND SHOOTING:

This is a great form shooting drill to help get arms up & off your body :

To summarize other key points: 

 

3. In girl's lacrosse, we play 7on 7 field players in the offensive zone (defensive team has goalie as well: 7 field players on defense (4 defenders, 3 midfielders plus the goalie = 8); whereas the offensive team only has seven players

(4 attackers +3 midfielders)

 

4. A yellow card = a 2 MIN penalty 

ANY check to the head = automatic yellow card.

This is a great video if you'd like to brush up on the rules of the game:
