Shooting on the Run

Postby UKLaxfan Fri Jul 18, 2008 1:44 am

Shooting on the Run:
Shooting on the run is one of the most difficult skills to master but
it also one of the most effective sklls if you can master it.

Keys to success:
1) Run through the shot don't stop or slow down giving defender a chance to make a trail check
2) Get good rotation on lower trunk and shoulders, so you can generate power
3) Set up the shot with a cradle high & away, setting ball in sweet spot of stick and ideally hiding the head of your stick behind your head/back
4) Follow through to the target, generates power and accuracy
5) Use both hands to generate power Pull - Bottom Hand, Push & Snap wrist -Top Hand
6) Shoot off your outside foot, ideally pivoting off the outside foot and making the last step towards the Goal.
7) Practice - Practice - Practice
