Lacrosse Hitch Shot

The hitch shot adds deception to your lacrosse shooting repertoire. This "fake" shot will freeze a defender and allow you to move & get off a better shot. This technique is similar to a "pump fake" in basketball and will allow you to get open for a less contested shot.

Key tip - Don't bring your stick forward as you fake the shot or a defender will be able to check your stick. Instead, sell the hitch shot with your body. Have someone video tape you so you can see if you are really "selling" your hitch shot (and thus effective at faking out a defender).

For additional shooting techniques & drills, please visit the wiki's Lacrosse Shooting section.
