Lacrosse Backhand Shooting (Shovel Shot) - Instructions, Videos, etc.

This page provides details for backhand shooting in lacrosse. This lacrosse shooting technique is also known as a shovel shot.

This advanced shooting technique has been popularized by Lyle Thompson. Rather than switching hands (i.e. switching hands for a lefty shot) when coming around from X on the left side, it involves keeping the stick in your right hand and shooting almost like a shovel pass.

For more shooting techniques (i.e. behind the back shooting), please visit the main Lacrosse Shooting section.
