Instructions for Lacrosse In-Close Shooting

This page show you how to shoot when you are near the goal and there are many defenders near you. When you are in close, you can not take a big wind-up as defenders will find it easy to check your stick. Rather, you will have your stick close to your body and the head of your stick should be near your ear in order to protect the ball. Moreover, your shot will be a quick "snap" of the wrists (versus a big wind-up). You will also often use lacrosse fakes in order to freeze the goalie.
