Lacrosse Shooting For Power - Instructions, Videos, etc.

This page show you how to shoot for power in lacrosse. In this technique, you will use the torque of your body (rotation) as well as your arm and leg strength in order to generate a more powerful shot. This technique can be used for Time & Room Shooting as well as Shooting on the Run.

Lacrosse shooting power is generated by proper shooting techniques as well as arm/shoulder strength, body torque (core strength) and leg power. Visit our lacrosse strength training page for ways to improve your overall strength. When working on your strength, don't forget your wrist and forearm strength in order to generate a stronger "snap" to your lacrosse shot.

An interesting lacrosse drill to improve your lacrosse shooting power is to sit on the ground and try to shoot on the goal. This will force a player to work on his "torque" and core strength in order to improve his shot.

Check the pocket in your lacrosse head. A deep low pocket is great for cradling and protecting the ball but slows your release and thus slows your shooting power.
