In lacrosse, when the ref blows the whistle, the quickest hands win the ball. From there, momentum starts to build—first possession means first chance to score. There’s no better way to keep the ball away from the other team than to win face-offs at the start of the game and after every goal.
The drills below, courtesy of Notre Dame assistant coach Brian Fisher, will help you become a face-off specialist.
Fisher encourages his players to experiment. He says players must use their strengths; e.g., a big, strong guy might be quicker to give up a clamp and go for the body than a smaller player with a lower center of gravity. Use the moves that will give you the best chance to beat your opponent and win the ground battle.
