Position Spotlight – Midfield (Offense)

This weeks Position Spotlight is Midfield Offense:

As I stated in our midfield post last week the midfielder (middie) is the work horse of the team. They need to have good stick skills, good endurance, and be able to play offense and defense. They have to be able to communicate while on the run, and most of all they need to bring the intensity.

Playing Attack – The finer points

This week we will be talking about the position of attack and some of the nuances to improve as an attack-man.  As a former college attack-man,  I have my views on how the position should be played.  As with any sport,  take in as much as you can by listening to your coaches and watching as many lacrosse games as possible.  Look at players that you admire and try and emulate what they do.  It could be an inside roll, ...
