AYL TV – Crosschecking

Atlanta Youth Lacrosse is proud to introduce “AYL TV!” Today’s video focuses on one of many personal fouls in lacrosse – the crosscheck.

Rule 5, Section 2 – Crosse Check (NFHS Boys Lacrosse Rule Book)

“A player may not check his opponent with his crosse in a cross-check position. That is, a check with that part of the handle of the crosse that is between the player’s hands, either by thrusting away from the body or by holding it extended from the body.”

The main benefit of AYL TV is you get to see what we are teaching instead of just reading about it. So now check out the very first video tutorial from AYL TV! Please be patient while the video loads.

Hopefully this video tutorial was helpful in showing you what a basic, garden variety cross-check looks like.

I would like to thank Jeremy and Justin Garr for their excellent demonstration of a cross-check. I would also like to thank Tom and Darlene for providing their time and video equipment. Finally I must thank my sister, Caitlin, for her excellent editing and effects on the first AYL TV video.

If you have any questions or comments please post them below.

Cheers,
Gordon
