How To Do A Lacrosse Swim Dodge

This page will teach you how to do a lacrosse swim dodge. Swim dodges are dodges used when you are very close to a defenseman. However, it is a dangerous dodge because you have only one hand on the lacrosse stick and you are trying to pass your stick OVER your opponent's stick or opponent's head (versus under the stick in a toe drag dodge or shielding the stick with your body).

For more information on other dodges, please visit the main Lacrosse Dodges section.

Instructions for the Swim Dodge

  • Keep your top hand near the head of the stick (for better ball control).
  • Remove your bottom hand from the stick.
  • Swing your stick with one hand over your opponent's stick (or opponent's head if you are taller than your opponent).
  • Move the stick away from your opponent and protect it close to your body until you are in the clear.
