Every lacrosse player born in the US has gotten plenty of stick skill instruction on how and when to use the stick on both sides of the body. Now, more youth players are growing up playing both Box and Field Lacrosse, and having some really great success with it.
"Ground Balls Win Games."- Every Lacrosse Coach knows that. If you are coaching beginning lacrosse players of any age, unfortunately you are going to spend a lot of time with the ball on the ground in a messy scrum. Make the most of that time if you want your team to be successful. Ground balls require focus and toughness. Often they are followed by a full-speed, full-field sprint. Recognize and reward your players that consistently run hard to get the ball for your team.
