Sample text

Coach Stahl’s gift was to instill in me the grace of the game. S. World Cup team member, Director, Women’s Division, US Lacrosse Team Fouls A team may not have more than seven players over the restraining line in their offensive end of the field. Subsequently, a team may not have more than eight players (which includes the goalie) over the restraining line in their defensive end of the field. In both cases, this would be an offside foul. Players may exchange places during play, but it’s important that the player has both feet over the line before a teammate can cross the restraining line.

However, girls’ youth lacrosse rules state that a free position will be taken at the centerline by the team with fewer goals if a four-or-more-goal differential exists. The umpire sets up the center draw. A midfield player from each team stands with one foot toeing the center line and in a position to propel the ball into her offensive end of the field. Since there are a number of ways to take the center draw, remind players who take the draw always to have the backs of their sticks facing their goal cage.

For beginning players, here’s a fun “homework assignment” to encourage use of both hands when playing lacrosse. Challenge your players to perform daily tasks—everything from brushing their teeth to using their fork— with their opposite hand. The rationale is that the more they use their “weak” hand in everyday life, the easier it will be to develop lacrosse skills with both hands. To further help dexterity in both hands, we’ll introduce you to a number of stick-work tricks (see pages 109–15) that will produce confident and creative stick handlers and will encourage you and your players to have fun while learning to play lacrosse.
