How To Do A Fake Pass In Lacrosse

This page will show you how to do a fake pass in lacrosse. This technique will help to create space by freezing a defender so you can score, dodge or pass to an open teammate.

For more instructions on passing techniques (i.e. behind the back passes), please visit the main Lacrosse Passing section.


  • With this technique, you need to "sell" the fake. Do not start your next move (i.e. dodging past the defender) until you see the defender looking around to see where the ball went. See second video for an example.
  • Use your head and shoulders to sell the fake.
  • Do not extend your stick far forward or the defender will check your stick.
