2-on-1 Man/Ball Drill to Goal
This is a simple variation of the 2-on-1 Man/Ball Drill to teach youth, high school, and college lacrosse players to turn a loose ball into a goal-scoring opportunity. It’s great for conditioning and toughness, and it imitates game situations. Plus it’s probably the most basic way to teach your players to understand the 2-on-1, even if their stick skills aren’t very good yet, since the ball starts on the ground.
Man/Ball is a classic for a reason- ground balls win games. Picking up loose balls results in extra possessions and extra chances to score. You can’t expect to win if you can’t pick up the ball.
The best thing about the 2-on-1 Man/Ball Drill is how flexible it is. We’ve seen plenty of teams using it in their pregame warm-ups.
Start your players anywhere on the field–mid line, end line or sideline. They can start facing any direction–toward the goal, away from the goal, toward the sideline or end line, in front of the goal or behind, etc. There are so many options you can throw in.
Here’s THE DRILL:
Separate your players into 3 lines, depending on how many players you have at practice.
The two lines on each end will be offense (Blue) and the line in the middle will be defense (Red).
You can also mix it up each time to keep your players on their toes. Choose one of the three players at the front of the line to be the single defender each rep.
Figure 1.) From here, Coach will throw out a loose ball. The two offensive players (Blue) and the single defensive player (Red) run to battle 2-on-1 for the loose ball. The two Blue players should be talking and working together to get the ball before the Red player can.
Teach your players to get to the ball quickly, scoop on the run with two hands on the stick, and run to space to move the ball quickly.
- When one of your players gets possession, he should call “Release!” to tell his teammates to stop blocking. If they don’t stop blocking other players, that will be an Illegal Screen violation, similar to a Moving Pick in basketball. All that hard work for nothing.
- No matter how you run the drill, keep it moving and get the quickest repetitions possible for each player! Anything that keeps the drill and your players moving!
- Remember you can time your drills for your players’ age to get the most out of your practice time.
- If you need to add some intensity to practice, check out our tips for keeping score in your drills. You could give one point to the offense every time they get the ball. Give two points to the defense, since they have one less player. Teach your players to compete every day in practice!
- Although “Man/Ball” has been a part of lacrosse for forever, more and more coaches now are teaching their players to play “Ball/Man”, where your team knows you all go for the ball, instead of going to block or hit the man. We think “Ball/Man” will become the new standard.
- “Fireball!”-throw in a new loose ball if there’s a bad pass or shot out of bounds to keep the drill going with the same players.
- On your backs- start your players on their backs in sit-up position, on their stomachs or in push-up position. This can add an extra element of conditioning to your drill.
- Chaser-After the ground ball is picked up, send in a second defender (Red) to keep the pressure on. In a game, these 2-on-1 situations only last for a few seconds.
- Close Quarters- play this same situation with the added pressure of keeping the ball in bounds. Sidelines are just like extra defenders.
Tons of options and tons of fun with this drill. Try it out and tell us how it goes! Ground Balls Win Games!
US Lacrosse Tutorials: Man/Ball Drill
Drill theme: ground balls
Field position: offense, defense
Drill style: skills, games
Time needed: 15 minutes
Field location: midfield
Skill level: basic
To teach players the basics of team ground balls and communications when the ball is on the ground and then picked up.
Description of drill:
Set up 3 defensive lines on the sideline and facing midfield. Have 2 additional lines of offensive players in between the defensive lines, facing the same directions. The coach will have the ball and will roll it out into the midfield area. On the whistle the players will run after the ball and try to gain control. When the players get within 3 yards of the ball, players should work on taking either man (and checking the opposing player away from the ball) or take ball (and go after pick up the ground ball). After one team gains control of the ball, the players must complete 1 pass before getting the ball back to the coach.
Have players start on their stomachs, or facing away from where the ball will be thrown. This will require all players to turn and find the ball as they run to pick it up, making for an even playing field. Also, add and subtract lines to make your players go 2 v 1, 2 v 2, 3 v 2, etc.

Lacrosse Man Up Rules
At full strength, each team in men’s lacrosse will have nine field players. Throughout the game, however, one team may find themselves in a man-up situation, also known as a power play or extra-man opportunity, due to a penalty call against their opponent. In this tutorial, we will learn the rules of a man-up situation.
During a man-up situation, also called a power play, one team has one or more players on the field than their opponents, which creates a scoring advantage. A maximum of three players from one team can serve in the penalty box at one time. Teams will design man-up offenses and man down defenses to use during a power play. A power play results from personal fouls and technical fouls. In the case of a technical foul, it must be committed while the team fouled had possession of the ball in order for a player to be sent to the penalty box.
Man Up Terminology
To better understand power plays, we will define a few key terms:
- Penalty Box
- Releasable Penalty
- Non-releasable Penalty
- Extra Man Offense
- Man Down Defense
- Penalty Kill
The penalty box in lacrosse is an area of the field located within the substitution area outside of the sideline in front of the scorer’s table. Players who receive a penalty serve out the penalty for the duration in the penalty box.
A releasable penalty in lacrosse is a penalty that expires if a goal is scored for the team whose player is serving a penalty. A releasable penalty is granted for most technical or illegal equipment fouls.
The non-releasable penalty in lacrosse is a penalty in men’s and women’s lacrosse that must be served for the full length of penalty time even after a goal is scored. A non-releasable penalty is given for an illegal stick violation, unsportsmanlike conduct, a missing mouthguard or a spearing call. A non-releasable penalty can vary in time from one minute to three minutes. It is the opposite of a releasable penalty.
The extra man offense is an attack formation or strategy used when the attacking team has an extra man opportunity or EMO. Teams will practice certain drills and offensive plays to take advantage of having one more player than the defense. The short-handed defense will often fall into a zone rather than marking up individual players. It is a good offensive tactic to create two-on-one situations that force the zone to stretch or fall out of position.
Man down refers to the defense that has one or more fewer players than the offense as a result of a penalty situation. In a man down defense, the defenders must change tactics or formation to cover critical areas and prevent shots on goal. Often, a man down defense will use a zone to pack players closer to the goal area.
A penalty kill in lacrosse is a strategy by the man down team to possess the ball until the player serving a penalty in the penalty box returns to the field. This prevents the team with an extra man opportunity from creating a scoring chance.
Ground ball, faceoff woes lead to No. 4 Syracuse’s 7-goal loss to No. 9 Notre Dame

Charles Leonard scrambled past Syracuse faceoff man Jack Savage, scooped up the ground ball and kept running. Leonard absorbed multiple whacks from Brandon Aviles before shaking the SU short-stick defensive midfielder about 5 yards away from the cage.
Leonard fired and scored, and Syracuse goalie Drake Porter could only swat in his net in disbelief for a few moments afterward. It was Notre Dame’s seventh unanswered goal, and the Orange trailed 14-8 because of it.
Saturday afternoon, Syracuse cycled through three different players at the faceoff X, went 9-of-32 and lost the possession battle 47-34, per Lacrosse Reference. But it wasn’t just on faceoffs that Syracuse (4-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) was “outworked” in an 18-11 loss to Notre Dame (5-1, 1-1), long-stick midfielder Brett Kennedy said. Syracuse lost the ground-ball battle 45-20 and lost the possession battle by more than it has in any other game this season. Notre Dame had 16 turnovers, but SU didn’t capitalize.
“It’s one of those things where, if you don’t have the ball, you’re not going to score,” Desko said. “And we just gave them too many opportunities, and they really came alive in the second quarter. ”
Late in the first half, with UND up 10-8, Daniel Cassidy lost the ball at midfield on a clear. Kennedy grabbed onto it for a second before a Notre Dame player forced another loose-ball scramble. The refs called a slash on Chase Scanlan during the ensuing scrum, and the Fighting Irish soon scored again to take a three-goal lead into halftime.
Again in the third quarter, Notre Dame goalie Liam Entenmann strolled past midfield and threw a bad pass, which dropped to the Carrier Dome turf. Nick DiPietro, Kennedy and Tucker Dordevic all surrounded the ball. There was a chance for the Orange in transition with Entenmann out of position, but Griffin Westlin and Cassidy combined to retain possession for UND’s offense.
The Fighting Irish consistently reacted first to the ball popping free, either picking the loose ball up or forcing a violation on SU, and for a second straight week, the Orange handily lost the ground-ball battle. Last week, the Blue Devils had 16 more ground balls than SU, too.
“All around, we have to be faster, bigger, stronger,” Kennedy said. “They outworked us every time the ball was on the ground, even, forget the faceoffs, you know, just on defense and offense, they were out-hustling us, and we can’t allow that.”

The faceoff woes continued, too, compounding Syracuse’s possession issues. Jakob Phaup entered Saturday’s matchup having won under 50% of faceoffs in back-to-back games just once in his career. He lost seven of his first eight, with the only win coming on a UND violation, to partner his 1-for-10 performance against Duke.
Danny Varello came on to start the second quarter, winning the first two and losing the ensuing five, which led to his benching by the midpoint of the second period. Notre Dame stormed back from a first-quarter deficit to take a 7-6 lead, and Syracuse turned to the freshman Savage.
Savage matched up better with the quickness of Notre Dame’s faceoff stars, Kyle Gallagher and Charles Leonard, Desko said.
Savage split the remaining faceoffs in the first half 3-3, but UND’s lead still blossomed to 11-8 at halftime. And in the third quarter, Savage went 3-for-7 before losing all four in the final frame. SU considered redshirting Savage earlier in the year, Desko said, but decided against it.
“We felt that, if we’re going to get into some games like this, we’re going to have to use him,” Desko said. “So the redshirt came off, and you’ll see him more as the year goes on.”
The lack of ball-control bled into other parts of SU’s game. Notre Dame ground down the Orange defense for nine goals in the second quarter and another seven after halftime. Syracuse’s midfield lines went long stretches without even touching the field, and the offense as a whole grew “stiff,” attack Stephen Rehfuss said.
Against Duke, the Orange trailed 13-11 at the start of the final frame. Despite losing 5-of-6 faceoffs in that period, they managed to take a 14-13 lead at one point before succumbing to the Blue Devils 15-14.
SU couldn’t repeat that feat when hosting Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish won all five faceoffs in the final quarter, and Syracuse, managing just three possessions the whole period, remained scoreless. It was the Orange’s first scoreless quarter this season.
“It’s obviously hard,” Rehfuss said of not having many possessions. “It’s no excuse. We could still have scored a little bit more.”
Halfway through Syracuse’s ACC schedule, its performances at the faceoff X have been crucial to its results. Against Virginia, Phaup’s dominance in winning two-thirds of the draws sparked the Orange’s largest win over the Cavaliers ever. In the two ACC losses since, SU won a combined 17-of-64 faceoffs.
Even against unranked Vermont, losing 24-10 at the X allowed the Catamounts to slow down the pace of the game and stay close throughout, eventually losing 17-13.
Kennedy emphasized on Saturday that faceoffs weren’t the only facet lacking for SU — the Orange were “slow” on their feet after the first quarter. But losing draws and the ground-ball battle by as much as they did against Notre Dame leaked into every other part of SU’s game. It’ll likely continue to do so for the rest of the season.

Youth Lacrosse By Position | MomsTeam
Men’s Lacrosse Positions:
The position of attack requires the most stick skill of all positions, with the exception of
the goalie. Attackmen should demonstrate good stick work with either hand and have quick feet
to maneuver around the goal in heavy traffic. Effective attackmen have good peripheral vision,
precision passes, and can effectively dodge, screen and shoot. The attacks are always on the
field as a scoring threat and, given an even match up, should score often. Typically the attack
work behind the net, called the “X” area, and on the flanks of the crease, called the “wings”.
This gives the attackmen the most room to dodge and cut. Attackmen generally restrict their
play to half of the field. They must work with the midfield to run an effective offense.
An attackman should be quick, alert, and confident in one-on-one situations and be able to
withstand physical punishment by the opposing defensemen.
Rules For Attack:
The attack use dodging, picks and passing to generate a good shot. Similar to basketball, the
object is to move the ball around until the defense breaks and someone is left with an open
shot. One way to do this is by letting an attackman go one-on-one with a defender. The
attackman tries to beat his defender by dodging, causing another defenseman to slide, creating
an unbalanced situation in which he can either shoot or pass to someone else who is wide open.
The attackman can move in any direction with any amount of force, as there are no charging
rules. The attackman, however, like all players cannot clamp the ball in his stick with his
thumb, chest, or helmet. He is also not allowed to push or hit the defenseman’s stick with his
arms or hands. This is called warding.
The midfielder is considered by many to be the backbone of the lacrosse team. Good midfielders
need speed, stamina, hustle and determination. They are required to play both defense and
offense. However, the middies are largely responsible for a key aspect of the game –
transition. Transition is by far the most important part of the game and helped create the
nickname, ‘The Fastest Game on Two Feet’. It involves retrieving loose balls, or clearing
saved shots and running and passing the ball up the length of the field. If a team can get
the ball and have an extra man advantage on the offensive end of the field, even for a split
second, they have a good opportunity to score. When this advantage occurs in transition it is
called a fast break. A midfielder should be able to shift quickly from offense to defense.
Midfielders do not have to be proficient scorers, but should be able to “read” what is about
to happen next.
Rules For Midfielders:
Along the center of the field is the midfield line. It is this reference point that determines
whether a team is offsides or not. The rules for offsides are simple: you must have 4 players
on your defensive end at all times, and 3 players on your offensive end at all times. Since it
doesn’t matter which players stay on what side, it is up to the midfield to keep their team
onsides, by staying on one side or the other. Since the position requires so much running, the
midfielders often changes lines on the fly, as in hockey.
The defenseman’s responsibility is to defend the goal. Although size aids the defenseman, more
importantly defensemen should be quick, agile and aggressive. Speed is always a valuable
commodity, but the ability to act and react, to judiciously apply pressure and to recover are
the key ingredients to an effective defenseman.
They must keep the attack at bay. Their job is to keep the ball away from the net so the
opposing attack doesn’t get a good look at the goal. The job is difficult: A defenseman
doesn’t know where the attack are going or what they are going to do. In his arsenal the
defenseman has a long stick (14U and above). This stick allows a defender to keep the
attackmen at a distance, thus allowing him to throw checks without being beaten on foot. Good
footwork is an extremely important part of playing good defense ……to be able to apply pressure
and be aggressive, without lunging a foot and body forward is key, otherwise the offensive
player can then easily go around the overly aggressive defenseman. A defenseman must be able
to think and react quickly, and most importantly communicate with his fellow defensemen.
Rules For Defenseman:
Defensemen are allowed to check the attackmen they are covering. What this means is a
defenseman is allowed to use his stick to hit the attackman’s stick and arms. A defenseman
cannot strike the attackman on the head, and cannot strike the attackman’s body with the stick
with any significant force. This penalty is called a slash. Most slash penalties occur when a
defenseman employs the use of a ‘slap’ check, which is when the stick is swung perpendicular
to the attackman’s shaft in a slapping motion. The other common check is the ‘poke’ check, in
which the defenseman simply jabs straight on at an attackman’s stick in a motion like that of
a pool cue. When the attackman is close enough, a defenseman can use his body for defense.
Body checking, or hitting, in lacrosse is very similar to that in hockey. A legal body check
is any hit that is head to head (no hitting from behind). People who are legal targets are
anyone standing within five yards of a loose ball, or anyone with possession of the ball.
Hitting someone without the ball, while another player has possession is called interference.
The position of goalie in lacrosse is probably one of the most intense
positions of all sports. Essentially, you must play catch with people
at a very high speed. Unfortunately for the goalie, most people don’t
throw at his stick. The goalie wears additional protective equipment:
throat guard and chest protector. A goalie stick is typically of normal
length, 40-50 inches, with an extra wide head. Unlike goalies in
hockey, lacrosse goalies must be very mobile. They often come out of
the circular crease that surrounds the 6’x6′ goal. Explosive speed and
very quick hands are key ingredients in making a goalie, as well as a
tolerance for pain. When a goalie comes out of the crease to fetch
ground balls or to clear a saved shot, he becomes a target, much like
the quarterback in football.
A good goalie leads the defense by reading the situation and directing
the defensemen to react. A goalie also directs the clearing patterns
and provides intangible cohesion that binds a team together. A good
goalie should have excellent hand/eye coordination and a strong voice.
Quickness, agility, confidence, a “thick skin” by not getting too down
when scored on and the ability to concentrate are also essential.
Rules For Goalies:
The goalie defends a square goal six feet wide by six feet high. Around the goal is a circular
crease. The crease area is limited to entry by the goalie and defensive players only. Once the
goalie makes a save he has 4 seconds to either pass the ball or run the ball out of the
crease. In these four seconds no one may touch him. Once the goalie steps outside the crease
he is no longer allowed back into the crease unless he yields possession of the ball.
Men’s Lacrosse Skills:
The act of receiving a passed ball with the crosse.
The act of attempting to dislodge the ball from an opponent’s stick.
A stick check in which the player pokes the head of his stick at an opponent’s stick through
the top hand by pushing with the bottom hand.
A stick check in which a player slaps the head of his stick against his opponent’s stick.
A one-handed check in which the defender swings his stick around his opponent’s body to
dislodge the ball. (This check is only legal at the highest level of play.)
The coordinated motion of the arms and wrists that keeps
the ball secure in the pocket and ready to be passed or shot when running.
A movement by an offensive player without the ball, toward the opponent’s goal, in
anticipation of a feed and shot.
Passing the ball to a teammate who is in position for a shot on goal.
The act of throwing the ball to a teammate with the crosse.
The act of picking up a loose ball with the crosse.
An offensive tactic in which a player near the crease positions himself so as to block the
goalkeeper’s view of the ball.
The act of throwing the ball with the crosse toward the goal in an attempt to score.
Women’s Lacrosse Positions:
The first home’s responsibility is to score. Located in front of the goal, the first home must
continually cut toward the goal for a shot, or cut away from the goal to make room for another
player. She should have excellent stick work.
The second home is considered the playmaker. She should be able to shoot well from every angle
and distance from the goal.
The third home’s responsibility is to transition the ball from defense to attack. She should
be able to feed the ball to other players and fill in wing areas.
The wings are also responsible for transitioning the ball from defense to attack. Wings should
have speed and endurance and be ready to receive the ball from the defense and run or pass the
The point’s responsibility is to mark first home. She should be able to stick check, body
check and look to intercept passes.
The coverpoint’s responsibility is to mark second home. She should be able to receive clears,
run fast and have good footwork.
The third man’s responsibility is to mark third home. She should be able to intercept passes,
clear the ball, run fast and have good footwork.
The center’s responsibility is to control the draw and play both defense and attack. She
should have speed and endurance.
The wings are responsible for marking the attack wings and bringing the ball into the attack
area. Wings should have speed and endurance.
The goalkeeper’s responsibility is to protect the goal. She should have good stick work,
courage and confidence.
Women’s Lacrosse Skills:
The act of moving the stick from side to side causing the ball to remain in the upper part of
the pocket webbing.
The act of using a controlled tap with a crosse o
n an opponent’s crosse in an attempt to dislodge the ball.
The act of receiving a passed ball with the crosse.
A movement by a player without the ball in anticipation of a pass.
The act of suddenly shifting direction in order to avoid an opponent.
The act of throwing the ball to a teammate with the crosse.
The act of scooping a loose ball with a crosse.
The act of throwing the ball at the goal with the crosse in an attempt to score.
Arceri Breaks Career Ground Balls Record in 16-9 Win Over Lafayette
2/8/2020 | 1:00 PM
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Gerard Arceri became the program’s all-time ground balls leader and the No. 2 Penn State offense picked up right where it left off last season in a 16-9 win over Lafayette in a non-conference men’s lacrosse matchup Saturday at Panzer Stadium. The season-opening win moved the Nittany Lions to a perfect 6-0 at Panzer Stadium, which was opened midway through last season.
Penn State, which had the top scoring offense in the nation last season, was led by Grant Ament with 10 points on four goals and six assists and Mac O’Keefe with six goals and an assist. Seven different Nittany Lions scored in the game, including Jack Traynor with a pair of goals. Kevin Hill, TJ Malone, Dylan Foulds and Mitch Schaefer added one apiece.
The Lions were dominant on faceoffs, winning 22 of 27, including a 19-21 showing from Arceri. Jake Glatz chipped in with three faceoff wins on his six chances.
Arceri led all players with 15 ground balls to give him a Penn State record 450 for his career. His sixth ground ball of the day, which came in the second quarter, gave him the record. He passed Chris Marcus, who had 435 from 1990-93.

The Penn State offense started slow and ended slow, but the Lions scored in bunches in the middle. They didn’t take the lead until over 10 minutes into the game when O’Keefe scored a man-up goal with an assist from Dylan Foulds. Kevin Hill made it a 3-1 lead, which is how the quarter would end, with a goal off an assist from Ament with 55 seconds left on the clock.
The scoring picked up dramatically to start the second quarter as Penn State scored five goals in a span of two minutes, 55 seconds, starting with an unassisted score by Ament just 36 seconds into the quarter. Ament and O’Keefe had two goals apiece during that stretch, while Traynor added one as the Lions took an 8-1 lead. The Leopards scored once in the quarter to cut their deficit to 8-2 heading into the half.
After an 11:29 scoring drought to end the second quarter, Penn State’s offense began to click again in the third quarter. Malone provided the spark with a goal just 38 seconds into the half off an assist from Ament. It was one of four goals Ament assisted on in the quarter. Two were scored by O’Keefe, while the other was by Traynor.

Penn state outscored Lafayette 7-2 in the third quarter and 12-3 over the middle two quarters combined. With the starters sitting for a large chunk of the final period, the Leopards finished with a 5-1 edge in the fourth.
Schaefer scored Penn State’s lone goal of the fourth quarter with 3:42 showing on the clock. It was the first career goal for the senior.

The Lions scored four goals on four extra-man opportunities, including two during a non-releasable penalty in the third quarter. O’Keefe factored in on all four extra-man goals, scoring three times and providing one assist.
Penn State forced 19 Lafayette turnovers. Nick Cardile, Traynor, Bobby Burns, Canyon Birch and Sutton Boland had one caused turnover apiece. Thirteen Lions contributed at least one ground ball.
Ament’s 10 points in the game give him 250 for his career. He needs just three more to pass Gary Martin (1981-84) to become the program’s all-time leader. O’Keefe ranks third with 205 after tallying seven against Lafayette.
The Lions, who improved to 26-0 in the all-time series with Lafayette, now turn their attention to a road game at Villanova on Saturday, Feb. 8, at 1 p.m. It will be the season opener for the Wildcats. The teams will play for a 13th-consecutive season.
Lacrosse Terms, Words and Slang (Updated 2020) – LaxWeekly
In lacrosse, you will quickly notice that there are are lots of terms and jargon that are not used commonly in everyday life. It can definitely be confusing at times, and I want to make sure that you know what all these things mean.
This article is a constantly updated (alphabetical) list of all the lacrosse terms and jargon I use as a lacrosse player and in my articles/videos. You are always free to email me [email protected] with any questions or if you want a word or term to be added. Enjoy!
- Alley – This is the left and right side of the offensive side of the field. Midfielders usually dodge “down the alley.” See above illustration to see what I mean.
- Alligator Arms – This is a term coaches use when lacrosse players have their arms in close when they pass or shoot. The proper form is to have your arms extended. You don’t want to have alligator arms!
- Around the World – This is when you pass or shoot by bringing the stick across your body and around your back. It is one of the hardest moves to do in all of lacrosse. Here’s an example.
- Attack – This is a position in lacrosse similar to a forward in soccer. They are offensive players who cannot move to the defensive side of the field.
- Ball Hog – This is a term lacrosse players and coaches use for someone who does not pass the ball. From personal experience, ball hogs are no fun to play with. Don’t be a ball hog!
- Ball Hunt – This is what coaches say at the end of practice when it’s time to go pick up all of the balls that you missed during shooting practice. No one likes ball hunts!
- Body – This is a command coaches use to tell defenders to use their bodies to push the opposing player instead of using their lacrosse stick. The proper defensive form is to use your body and not rely on the stick.
- Body Check – This is when you hit your opponent using your body. There are certain rules for body checking, such as no checking from behind and generally no head starts.
- Back Door Cut – This is when you make a cut towards the goal instead of towards your teammate. This move is especially effective for players on the crease.
- Bouncer/Bounce Shot – This is when you shoot the ball into the ground before it hits the goal. Many goalies find it difficult to stop a bounce shot.
- Buddy Pass – This is a lacrosse pass that is too soft and usually results in an easy interception from the opposing team. It’s simple: do not throw buddy passes. Make sure your passes are crisp and accurate.
- Butt End – This is the rubber cap that goes on the bottom of a lacrosse stick. It protects players from getting cut by the metal from the shaft.
- Box – This could refer to two things: (1) The area of the lacrosse field where a player who committed a penalty must sit. (2) Short for “Box Lacrosse,” a type of lacrosse that is played in a hockey rink with turf.
- Braveheart – This is when two lacrosse players from each team (one goalie and one midfielder) square off to decide who wins a game. This format is common in summer tournaments or other “unofficial” games of lacrosse.
- BTB – This is a lacrosse term that stands for “behind the back,” meaning a pass or shot that you throw behind your back instead of straight overhand. Behind the backs are hard to pull off, but when done correctly, they are incredible to watch.
- Bucket – This is another name for a lacrosse helmet, referring to the old style of lacrosse helmets that resembled the shape of a bucket.
- Cage – This is another name for a lacrosse goal.
- Check – This is when a defender swings a stick at an offensive player in an attempt to dislodge the lacrosse ball.
- Clamp– This is when face-off men pin the ball down with their lacrosse stick.
- Clear – This is when your team is trying to take the lacrosse ball from the defensive side of the field do the offensive side. The opposing team will try to “ride” or play defense while you are clearing the ball.
- Cleats – These are the spiked shoes that lacrosse players wear. Cleats help you get more traction in grass. Just make sure they aren’t metal!

Lacrosse is also hockey
Lacrosse is also hockey

Although ice hockey is the most eminent and most popular of all games with a stick, many people enjoy playing other hockey games, sometimes very peculiar ones.Competitions are also held on them, they are also included in the program of the Olympic Games. A very unusual game of lacrosse. It is at the same time akin to ice hockey, and rugby, and field hockey. Its name is also very unusual, because from the French the word “lacrosse” can be translated as … “the curved rod of the bishop.”
This is explained to those who have a stick for the game and really resembles the staff of one of the highest Catholic dignitaries. There is a version that in France lacrosse was played in the XIV century.Then the French settlers brought her to Canada, where she enjoys immense popularity, inferior to the truth, ice hockey. Another version of its origin is also widespread: it is believed that modern lacrosse originated from an old game of Canadian Indians called “boggataway”. According to the testimony of contemporaries, this game with a ball made of elk skin was extremely exciting. So much so that in the middle of the 17th century, the soldiers of the English fort Michilinmakin gazed so much at boggataway , which the Indians started at the walls of the fortification, that they missed the moment when other Indians made their way into the fort and captured it without any fuss … really resembles modern lacrosse.Where is the truth? It is possible that two similar games originated in different regions separated by the ocean, and then something in between on Canadian soil turned out to be.
They love lacrosse for its dynamism, fun, and also for the fact that the game makes very high demands on the participants. You need to be tough, be able to run like a sprinter, and be fluent in a long club racket. The lacrosse grass field is longer than a football field, but also a little narrower. The gates of a very unusual shape are triangular, they are installed not on the front lines, but almost twenty meters in front of them.Therefore, the game goes on outside the goal, like ice hockey. Twelve team members are armed with long club rackets. At the end of the club there is a triangular scapula with a mesh stretched over it, forming a shallow pocket. It is interesting that, depending on the playing role of the club-racket, the participants in the game are different. The attackers have small shoulder blades on the sticks, allowing them to hit the ball strongly and sharply. The defenders have more shoulder blades so that they can reflect the attacks of the attackers. The goalkeeper has the largest stick with the largest shoulder blade – he catches balls directed into the goal with it.The current lacrosse ball weighs 142 grams and has a circumference of 20cm. In the old days, balls for the game were made from sea mushroom, and now they use a rubber sponge. The goal of each team is to score the ball into the opponent’s goal, inflicting a strong and accurate blow with a racket club. On occasion, you can hit the ball with your foot, but touching it with your hands, as in football, is strictly prohibited. There are lacrosse players all over the field. Often between them, as in ice hockey, power martial arts arise.While trying to steal the ball, you can hit the opponent’s stick with the stick, but you cannot hold it with your hand or foot. It is allowed to push the opponent with the shoulder or hip. You can block the opponent holding the ball. But power techniques are used only when the opponent dribbles or receives the ball. At the same time, it is strictly forbidden to attack him from behind, as well as to use hands. You cannot push an opponent if he is already fighting another player. Steps, kicks and punches are prohibited. It is not hard to imagine that even within the framework of the rules, the game turns out to be quite strong and sharp.Therefore, players wear protective helmets, as well as gloves and shields that cover the most vulnerable parts of the body. As in football, the goalkeeper is the only player who can touch the ball with his hand. However, this is where the similarity ends – you cannot catch the ball, but you can only repulse the blows not only with a stick, but also with your hands. When the ball is trapped by the goalkeeper’s racket, the goal keeper must immediately pass it to his partner.

DIY patchwork ball for crumbs
This cute ball is called the Amish ball. The Amish are residents of unusual Christian villages who have decided to abandon the benefits of progress and live in the old fashioned way. The Amish men are skilled artisans, and their women are excellent seamstresses.A feature of every Amish home is the variety of patchwork quilts. In general, patchwork is a favorite business of Amish women. Children in these villages play with dolls and other handmade toys. And in one lovely dwelling, some kind of mother-needlewoman came up with such an interesting and useful ball.
How is this developing ball useful?
1. He teaches the child to crawl, because rolling back a short distance beckons the kid to reach him.
2. Develops fine motor skills, easily lying with its lobules in the little handle of the crumbs.
3. Develops attention and vision when it falls out of the handles and hides somewhere not far from the baby, and he looks for the ball with his gaze.
4. Teaches you to listen to your quiet bells and to look by ear where he is running.

1. 36 petals must be cut out of fabric (different colors are available). To do this, use our pattern and choose the appropriate petal size (one of 3 options).I was medium in size. I was making a two-tone ball, so I cut out 12 petals from the fabric that will be visible to the outside, and 24 inner petals from another fabric.

2. For convenience, it is worth dividing all the petals into piles of 3 pieces: 2 inner and 1 outer petal.
3. Take 2 petals and fold each one in half, bend them to each other, then put them on the third.

4.We sew them together along the edges, leaving a small gap for stuffing in one seam.
First we sew 2 parts
Then we make 2 more seams
5. We turn out the resulting cases and fill them with padding polyester. We will have 12 small pillows.

6. Put a small bell inside each pad and sew up the gaps.

Sew up all gaps
I got it like this
7.We begin to sew the pads together. Make sure that the front of each pad is on the outside. As a result, from 3 pillows it turned out like a donut. We will have 4 bagels in total.

8. Now the most difficult moment (as luck would have it, I don’t have a photo, so I drew a diagram) – we need to sew the bagels together to make a patchwork ball. To do this, take 3 donuts and sew them together with their vertices, so that at the base of the sewn figure, we also get the same donut.Cover the resulting figure with a 4th donut, as shown in the picture. Everything, we can be proud of ourselves, because we sewed a patchwork ball with our own hands!
How to sew bagels together to make a ball
Do you remember our ball sensor box? It was in it that our developing ball settled for a long time. Sewing it is not difficult, but it is a little troublesome to cut out so many details, but holding it in your hands is a sheer pleasure.

90,000 working muscles and execution technique
Wall Ball is an exercise borrowed from boxing and is now actively used in CrossFit.In the process of performing medicine ball throws at the target, the most important muscle groups for percussion martial arts work – the muscles of the legs, anterior deltas, pectoral muscles, triceps, intercostal muscles, oblique and rectus abdominal muscles.

Rules for the exercise
We stand opposite a sufficiently strong wall or a specially equipped complex with a target.Legs are shoulder-width apart, knees slightly turned to the sides, toes point in the same direction as knees. Hands hold a medicine ball in front of the chest so that the shoulders are pressed against the body, the ball touches the chest in the solar plexus region.
Next, we perform squats – we sit down as low as possible, bend our knees at an angle of more than 90 degrees, while trying to sit down in a controlled manner, keeping the tension in the muscles of the legs. Thus, we accumulate kinetic energy in the lower limb.We rise from the squat due to the powerful extension of the knees and hip joints – at the same time, we push the ball away from the chest, throw it into the wall, above eye level.
Medicine ball bounces off the wall, catch it with our hands while bending the elbows, cushion the impact to the elbow joints, and lower ourselves back to the squat position.
The described exercise is a variant of thrusters, but instead of a kettlebell, barbell or dumbbells, a weighted ball is used.
