Max Seibald’s 3 Keys To Shooting On The Run
Max Seibald is easily one of the best shooters in lacrosse right now. Watching him shoot on the run is a sheer thing of beauty. I’ve been coaching with Max at his Maximum Lacrosse Camps in New York City this week, and the campers aren’t the only ones learning new things! Max has dropped knowledge left and right, now it’s time to pass some of his invaluable lessons on to YOU.
1) Shoot Overhand
Max is an honest coach, so he readily admits there are times when a sidearm or underhand shot can be appropriate. However, when shooting on the run, Max says overhand is ideal. It gives a player the best chance of getting their shot on cage, and allows the shooter to be much more deceptive. When shooting overhand, the head of the stick can be hidden behind the body, and a number of very similar release points can put the ball in many different locations.
A beginning to intermediate level lacrosse player might be able to put more juice on a sidearm shot, but an overhand shot is still much harder for a goalie to save. When observing our more experienced players at camp, it appears that they are at least twice as likely to hit the cage with their shots and probably three or four times more likely to score if they shoot overhand. I’ve even noticed this trend when I play “old man ball”. When I shoot overhand, I score. When I shoot sidearm, I go 1 for 9 and Rudy Martinez yells “popcorn” at me… a lot.
2) Shoot Accurate
It doesn’t matter how hard you shoot the ball if it goes into the goalie’s stick, or misses the cage. Power is great and all, but as we discussed in key number one, it is NOT the key to success. Sacrificing your power for better form will inevitably lead you to becoming a more effective shooter.Shooting on the run in NYC with Max Seibald!
Max rifles the ball at the cage when he shoots on the run, but remember, he is a professional lacrosse player and Tewaraaton Award Winner. Practice made perfect, and this is what he recommends.
Listen, I want to shoot through a goalie’s mesh and light it on fire as badly as you do, but it is not going to happen. We’re mortal. If I can’t do that, I’d at least like to notch some more G’s. Shooting accurate is really my only option here, and thankfully, it’s a great option to have. Taking 10-25% off of your on-the-run-shot, depending on distance from the cage, might be the best thing you ever did. Focus your energy on proper form, and putting the ball where you want it. THEN you can work on putting it there with power.
As Max has attested to at camp, progression of skill comes first, power second. Otherwise, you build up the power, and can’t use it effectively. Then you have to start all over with the skill, and try to re-apply the power. Breaking bad habits can be tough, so forming them correctly from the beginning is extremely important.
3) GO FAST!
Max is very well known for his speed on the field. When he was at Cornell, there wasn’t a quicker person on campus, and that included members of the track team. This key is a bit more flexible than the other two… Although it’d be great if everyone out there ran a 4.3 40, that’s just not realistic. So whether it’s GO FAST, or GO HARD, or attack the cage, the idea is the same: put the defense and the goalie on their heels. Be the aggressor. Dictate pace and impose your own will.
Going fast, hard and attacking the cage allows you to create separation, get your hands free, shoot overhand, and shoot accurate.
Shooting On The Run Recap
The first two keys are all about the act of shooting and how you can increase your chances of scoring. In order to do that, you need to create an opportunity. Key #3 addresses that requirement head on. Go fast, attack that cage hard and create your opportunity. Take your best shot using good form and focusing on accuracy. You’ll be well on your way to shooting on the run like Max!Be like Max.
Tips for Shooting on the RunShooting on the Run
tips from Mark Millon, Jay Jalbert and others
“I remember when I first started to force myself to do it lefty, it was just a really awkward thing. You’re running, and you have to keep your whole upper body still, and still have torque,” Jalbert says. “And I remember just fighting through that. It was a really difficult thing.”
Remember the two Ts: torso and torque.
|Paul Rabil – one of the best ever shooting on the run|
Then, on your fourth step, your right foot steps over your release point.
Allow your feet about a millisecond delay for your upper body to initiate shooting motion. Then whip your torso in a right-to-left motion toward the cage, and follow through with your arms and wrists as you would naturally.
(Approaching as a lefty, use the reverse footwork.)
Hand Position and Arm Angle
Before that fourth step, your hands should already be in a position to shoot.
As with any shot, your top hand should not be too close to the throat of the stick, because you will wind up pushing the ball.
But more so with shooting on the run, your top hand should not be too low, either. A lot of the whip is already generated by the torso-torque mechanic. Positioning your hands too low on the stick not only leaves you susceptible to a trail check, but it also decreases accuracy. A shot on the run is already less accurate than a stationary shot.
When you step over the release point with that fourth step, your hands should extend away from your body, elbows up, and ready to follow through on the torque created by your upper body.
Also, keep the stick “light in your hands,” Jalbert advises. “A lot of real young players, they have that kung-fu grip,” he says. “It should be tender.”
As for arm angles, shooting on the run lends itself best to sidearm and overhand approaches. Choose the angle according to your position on the field. Overhand shooting is more accurate on the run and many top players recommend an overhand shot when shooting on the run to improve accuracy.
However, if you’re dodging across the goal, go ahead and shoot sidearm. This gives you a better angle and widens your options of where to shoot on the cage.
If you’re coming down either alley, an overhand shot works best.
Think of a spring-loaded gun. “My body gets small before I shoot,” Jalbert says.
The more tightly wound your torso is upon your release, the more power you’ll get on your shot. It means tightening up your abdomen by contorting your upper body and hips, and releasing that energy through your arms and wrists.
Lean into the goal when shooting to generate this effect.
Step over your release point with your outside foot, delay, and whip your torso around for the greatest strength on your running shot. You can think of it like a golfers swing or leading with your hips in a baseball swing.
Drills and Workouts
Your body wants to stop. It wants to stop and shoot. So practice everything in motion, without a ball, even.
Jalbert had an apple orchard in his backyard growing up. There were six trees in a row. To get used to shooting on the run, when he was younger, he would dodge each tree in succession, and practice getting his hands out into shooting position after each tree.
The same effect could be achieved with any row of obstacles. The important thing is that you never stop moving your feet
As for developing muscles used while shooting on the run, use workouts for strengthening your rotational core.
More tips for shooting on the run:
Shooting on the run may be the hardest skill to learn in lacrosse and will require tons of practice. You are going to be shooting on the run a lot. When you are practicing, spend as much time as you can focusing on shooting on the run. Any time your on a goal practicing your shot (hopefully all the time) spend 85%-90% of the time running full speed and shooting. Don’t worry if you miss the goal badly the first few hundred times.
There are a few keys to scoring from outside.
Try to be deceptive
|Paul Rabil shooting on the run|
Don’t be afraid to take bounce shots. They can provide an additional aspect of deception with unpredictable bounces and often find the back of the cage.
Learn to do it with both hands.
This description is for a right handed shot, a left handed shot will be reversed.
KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE GOAL. Start by moving across the face of the goal from the right side to the left and have your shoulders parallel with the sidelines but as you begin to plant your left foot “show your numbers” to the goal. Begin the shooting motion by planting your left foot so it will face at about the 10 o’clock position, bring your right foot around slightly after so it will end up pointing at the goal. Be sure to have your right foot come around slightly before the stick, this will force you to “coil” your body so you will have more torque in your body which translates to more velocity in your shot. YOU MUST TAKE A WIDE STEP WITH YOUR RIGHT FOOT SO YOU CAN GET ALL OF THE VELOCITY FROM THE TORQUE IN YOU BODY INTO THE SHOT. Remember, you are moving through the entire process, do not stop to shoot. If you bring your right foot around properly with all of your body power behind the shot, the follow through should almost spin you completely around. Keep the stick behind your body so the goalie cannot see it, be careful not to “hang the stick”. YOU SHOULD HAVE A SORE LOWER BACK AFTER WORKING ON THIS OR YOU ARE NOT DOING IT RIGHT. You can practice shooting on the run from any angle on the field. It does not have to be across the face of the goal only.
Again, this is a tough skill even for top players. It is going to take a considerable amount of practice to master. Watch some high level lacrosse to see it in action!!
Women’s Lacrosse Training Tip – Shooting on the Run With Taylor Cummings Lacrosse Video
Women’s lacrosse training drill video with Taylor Cummings. As one of the best female lacrosse players ever to hit the field, shooting on the run is one of the best components of the game for Under Armour athlete and Team USA member Taylor Cummings. In Taylor’s latest video with Lax.com, the all-star midfielder goes over her tips to become a lethal shooter by explaining her “BEEF” concept.

How To Improve Your Shot For Lacrosse (B.E.E.F. Concept)
Balance your feet and make sure your hips are square toward the cage. If you are not balanced and square to the goal, chances are you are shooting a fadeaway or a crazy last chance goal and it’s most likely not going in.
To help generate more power Taylor suggest keeping your elbows out and wide.
Keep your eyes focused on the goal. Taylor’s mom used to tell her, “Shot at the big net, not the little net.” Learn to focus on the cage behind the goalie and not to aim at the goalie.
F: Follow Thru
Where ever you follow thru is where the ball is going to go. If you follow thru high, the ball will go high. If you snap your wrists and follow through low the ball will go low. Also, when on the run, keep running thru your shoot to generate the most power.

Shooting Diagrams For Beginner Coaches
There are 2 styles of shot in lacrosse: shooting-on-the-run (which is the most frequent) & set-shooting (which is the focus of this article). Using a basketball analogy, for a set-shot think Steph Curry with his feet set, perfect balance, dropping a bomb from long range with perfect form. For a shot-on-the-run, picture Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant slashing to the net and pulling up for an off-balance jump shot.
Set-Shooting sees the shooter start perpendicular to the net, taking a “crow hop” for extra power if “time & space is available
In lacrosse, when offenders get “time & space” in the prime scoring area, usually their first option is to take a “set-shot.” A good set-shot starts with a player standing perpendicular to the net, taking a baseball-like “crow-hop” if they have time, and then transferring their weight from their back foot forward onto their front foot; rotating their hips/shoulders (torso) and following through (shooting around the pipes). When set-shooting, remember the BEEF principles: Balanced (stance), Eyes (on target), Elbows (reaching back, tight to the body), and Follow Through (towards the target).
The following is a list of drill progressions we use at Laxlife.ca to teach set-shooting, all of which could also be used to teach shooting-on-the-run…
Drill #1: SEMI-CIRCLE (HORSESHOE) DRILL
The horseshoe drill is a great starting point for teaching set-shooting to a large group. Although, if boards or a wall are available, doing a demo and then having players practice (warm-up) there for a couple of minutes before shooting on the net is generally preferred.
Using the net as a reference point helps teach players where they should be shooting from. In box lacrosse, players should always practice shots from inside of the “prime scoring area,” on their “proper floor side. “
The prime scoring area is defined as two imaginary diagonal lines going from each goal post outward on a 45° angle towards the side-boards. Just outside of the shooter position, another imaginary semicircle (10 metres out from the top of the crease) connects to just outside the other shooter position on the opposite side of the floor, forming an arc that ultimately connects to the diagonals (45°). Shots from this area are considered to be “high percentage,” as a higher percentage of goals are proven to go in from this area than anywhere else.
Players should also be sure to take shots from their proper floor side, defined as a lengthwise “imaginary division” of the floor, stretching from the middle of one net to the other; players’ sticks should be facing this imaginary midline for the large majority of the time while on the floor. Likewise, players’ bodies should rarely, if ever, cross this imaginary midline while shooting. Any shot on the “wrong floor-side” of this imaginary line is considered a bad shot, and one that the goalie should save.
Prime Scoring Area
If there’s no goalie in the “horseshoe drill,” coaches can ask that players shoot “all at once,” which gives beginners a chance to get lots of repetitions. Some common errors we tend to see in beginning players are: not reaching their arms back in their preliminary movements, not releasing the ball properly (too far in front or behind their body), taking their eyes off of the target, not shooting overhand, and/or not following through to the target (stopping short; abrupt follow through).
If there is a goalie, players can take turns shooting, working their way from one side to the other (left to right or right to left), with one second in-between shots. Another advanced variation is to incorporate side-to-side shooting, switching from a left-handed to a right-handed shooter on each shot, which forces the goalies to have to reset on each shot and ultimately opens up more holes for shooters to try and expose.
Once players have developed sound shot mechanics, coaches can ask that players “react back” after shooting, sprinting the length of the floor (collecting a loose ball along the way if possible), and then lining up in the same formation in the opposite end of the floor; or just sprinting to the rag-line (lining up again in the same end).
Drill #2: STEP & SHOOT
As players begin to stabilize their shot, footwork patterns should then be added before the set-shot takes place. The first footwork pattern, and generally the most common is the “L-Shot.” The player takes a jab-step (“juke”) toward the board-side, planting off of their outside leg and cutting toward the middle (2-3 steps max), “setting” their feet (“perpendicular” to the net) for an outside shot. For beginners, it helps to put pylons on the floor to give a visual representation of the pattern. See the top half of the diagram below…The “L-Shot” and the “Drag Shot” are two of the most common footwork patterns used before shooting
If per se, the L-shot didn’t open up a lane for a shot, the next option in a game would to either pass to someone, or drag (back-pedal) back towards their proper floor side. In the “drag shot” variation (see the bottom half of the diagram above), the player takes a jab-step toward the top-side (opposite of L-shot), planting off of their inside leg and pivoting into a back-pedal (“drag”) toward the “board-side.” At this point the player should re-establish their momentum towards the net (north-south) and take a shot while still in the prime scoring area.
Drill #3: CAROUSEL & SHOOT
To simply pass the ball across the top of the defense is generally an ineffective strategy for creating a quality shot in a set-offense. Most offensive systems in box lacrosse see the ball get passed low first, and then carried high. During this process the ball carrier should “be a threat” to shoot. To replicate this, the next drill variation sees the first player on one side of the floor carry the ball from low to high, from the crease position up to the shooter position, and then step into a set-shot.
For beginners, pylons may be used for players to curl around, being sure that they have their “head up” looking at the middle while “carrying high” (as opposed to looking at the pylon they are running towards). This forces players to have to work on changing their body momentum from one direction to the other, in a north-south orientation. In a game, players would be reading the defense and taking whatever ground they could towards the middle of the prime scoring area. Thus, the pylon is just a visual cue for beginners.
Drill #4: CATCH & SHOOT (STATIONARY)
The next progression after learning how to shoot with the ball already in your stick is effectively catching and shooting the ball as seamlessly as possible. The ideal catch and shoot scenario sees the ball in the air with the player about to receive it already “crow-hopping” towards the net, receiving the ball with arms fully extended behind their body, catching and shooting all in one motion (otherwise known as a “quick stick”).
For beginners, coaches can underhand flip the ball to the player (with their hands), with the player attempting to catch and shoot the ball without cradling (or twirling) their stick. If players are competent enough, they can pass lefties to righties & vice versa (see diagrams below), working on the same mechanics as described above.
Drill #5: CATCH & SHOOT (DYNAMIC)
The most advanced variation of shooting is for players to catch a lead pass in stride (gradually building up their running speed), shifting their momentum downhill (north-south) and taking a set-shot as quickly as possible upon receiving the pass (ideally all in one motion if it’s a good pass). This is the most game-specific shot and the model for what players should try to be able to execute consistently. See the diagram below…
The final piece of the puzzle is knowing when to, and when not to shoot; otherwise known as shot selection: Shot selection is a mental process of either taking a shot or passing a shot up (not taking a shot). Being ready to shoot and in the “triple threat position,” is half of the equation. The other half depends on game-specific context variables, most notably: whether there is an open “shooting lane” toward the net and whether the shooter has “time & space.” Too often, beginning lacrosse players will take the first shot available, and not necessarily the best available shot (shot clock dependent).
Players must use good judgment before taking low percentage shots outside, or on the cusp of, the prime scoring area. It is usually better to “curl” out and look for a teammate who is in a better position, rather than take a low-percentage shot.
Shot accuracy and knowing where to shoot on a goalie is the final x-factor, and is usually the responsibility of coaches and “scouts,” although input from players and goaltenders are equally as important.

Lacrosse Shooting Drills to Improve your Form
Lacrosse shooting drills are the best way to improve and maintain your shooting form. Regular drilling with various lacrosse shooting techniques will ensure that you are able to shoot accurately, powerfully, and consistently, even under pressure from defensive players.
Training with your teammates is an ideal way to learn how to shoot in lacrosse, but if you want to maximize your skills, you should also do regular training on your own. The best way to do this is to use a lacrosse rebounder like this, a piece of equipment that can allow you to practice shooting even if you don’t have a partner available.
A lacrosse rebounder is basically a high tension net, adjustable to different angles, which you can shoot at and the ball will bounce back towards you, simulating blocks or passes from multiple angles.
Some of the most popular lacrosse shooting drills include:1. Picking the corners
This is an ideal warm-up drill and works well if you want to improve your accuracy and beat the goalie.
- Beginning from your starting position, take shots at the goal or rebounder, aiming specifically at the corner opposite where you began.
- You should alternate between shooting with your dominant hand for several shots, then switch to your non-dominant hand.
- Then switch position and repeat the same exercise towards the opposing corner.
The basic sweep works well for attacking and midfield players.
- You should start by putting down a cone 12 yards from the cage, aligned with the left pipe.
- Add another cone level with this but 10 yards in the direction of the sideline.
- From your starting position, sprint to the first cone, split dodge, sprint to the other cone, and shoot as you pass.
- Repeat the exercise 10 times and then switch the setup to the other side of the field and go again.
Use the same setup as in the basic sweep.
- But this time, your starting position should be in the middle of the lacrosse field.
- Sprint toward the center cone, split dodge, but this time as you perform the split dodge cut between the center cone and the outside cone as if dodging between two defensive players.
- When you’re ready, shoot at the goal.
- After you’ve repeated the drill 10 times switch to the other side of the field and repeat.
- Set out one cone about 10 yards from the cage and off to one side.
- Sprint towards it, and at the last moment, stutter step.
- Maintain your balance and keep your lacrosse stick in the same hand, continue towards the goal and shoot. For more of a challenge, pick out a corner while you’re running, or have a teammate call one out to you, this helps your reaction speed under pressure.
- Once again, 10 reps, then switch sides and repeat.
This is an agility drill, which is designed to help you beat the defensive players and get yourself into a shooting position.
- To set up the drill, place a cone just outside the crease, and to one side of the cage.
- Then, starting from behind the cage, run around the goal, and shoot as soon as you pass the cone. With time you should be able to increase your running speed and still make the sharp turn with time to get a shot off on target.
- Repeat the drill with the cone at the other side to practice shots from both directions.
A shadow shooting drill will help you practice stick movements without a ball. The idea is to concentrate on how you move the stick through the air.
- Position yourself centrally in front of the goal, with your left shoulder towards it, and start to make a right-handed shot.
- As you begin the motion, drop your right foot behind your left foot and plant it. This is known as a crow step and helps whip the ball forward in an overhand motion.
- As you practice, try taking more than one crow step to get more whip on the ball.
What skills do you need for lacrosse?
To succeed on the lacrosse field, you need a number of skills: stamina, timing, quick reactions, and strength. But above all, you need excellent ball skills. The basic types of skill you’ll need include:
- Scooping: retrieving the ball from the ground
- Passing: transferring the ball to another player
- Catching: receiving the ball in mid-air
- Cradling: keeping the ball in the pocket of your lacrosse stick
- Shooting: aiming the ball correctly to score a goal
How do you get good shooting form?
Good shooting form is vital – your form affects every aspect of your shot from power, to accuracy, to speed. In a game of lacrosse, shooting on the run is important, but without mastering your form first, you’ll find it hard to beat the goalie from a standing shot, let alone while moving. Here are some basics that you should master before getting started with drills.
- Make sure your elbow and wrist extend in a straight line to the basket.
- Similarly, your dominant hand should extend in a straight line to the rim.
- And most importantly, keep your guide hand to the side on delivery, out of the way of the ball.
How can I increase my shot power?
One of the most important factors in shot power is how well your upper and lower body are coordinated. Being able to maintain a smooth continuous movement without jerking at the waist will add speed and power to your shot.
A good training exercise to help build and maintain this coordination is as follows:
- Position a bar across your shoulders, behind your head.
- Now drop down into a quarter squat, and pause.
- Reverse the motion, returning to a standing position.
- Press the bar over your head and in front of your face.
- Extend your arms, and lock your elbows.
- Repeat for 3 to 5 reps per set.
Shooting drill takeaway
If you follow the lacrosse shooting drills and tips above as part of your regular training schedule, you’re sure to make improvements in all areas of your lacrosse game, but particularly in your shooting.
Goalie Tips for Saving Shots on the Run
As a lacrosse goalie we need to be adequately prepared to save all types of shots including shots on the run, aka alley dodges.
These are pretty common shots and I’m actually surprised it’s taken this long for someone to ask me a question regarding saving shooter’s shots off of the dodge and on the run.
Thank you for the email and the tips. I love reading your posts and tips. I’m a rising senior at Faith Lutheran High school in Las Vegas, Nevada and the biggest challenge for me is on the run shots, I just can’t really tell where the shots are going.
So when the ball carrier starts top center and dodges down the alley firing a shot on the run, what should be our approach as a goalie to make that save with the highest probability possible?
In this post, I’ll share my tips for saving shots on the run.
Be Set for the Shot
By far the biggest problem I see for goalies – when it comes to defending shots on the run – is that they are not set in their stance when the shot is fired.
This is a challenge, not just for shots on the run, but for all shot types. We have to ensure we are set in our ready stance in order to give us a higher probability of making the save.
The complexity with shots on the run is that since the shooter is moving we need to move on our goalie arc as well. Often times when the shooter releases the shot, the goalie is still in the process of moving and not set in that perfect lacrosse goalie stance.
A tactic we can use to put ourselves in better position to make the save is simply turn our hips a little to face the shooter. This allows us to be in a better position on the arc without actually moving.
Of course, when the alley dodger moves sufficiently we would need to move to the next point on our arc but the hip moving method allows you to be in better position without taking those little steps along the arc that completely prohibit “being set”.
One important point in particular for shots on the run is making sure you stay square to the shooter. Make sure your toes are pointing at the shooter and that the shooter is between your toes.
As I said, it’s harder to get set in your stance for a shot on the run because it requires moving on the arc.
So you really need to practice short quick bursts when you move on the arc. And always land in the next spot in your perfect stance, ready to make a save.
Remember that for the shooter, shooting on the run is harder. They won’t be able to get as much velocity and accuracy on the shots.
So if we keep your movements on the arc short and precise and get set before the shot is released, we’ll have a great chance to save it.
Trail the Shooter By A Step
As a shooter dodges from top center down the alley, a common goalie problem is to move on the arc too soon and too far. Thus the goalie ends up out of position giving the shooter too much open goal to aim for.
As a shooter alley dodges from top center, our position needs to be like the example on the right, however many goalies find themselves moving too far on the arc like the left position.
A perfect spot on the arc splits the goal from the shooter’s perspective. Give him two spots to shoot at. Otherwise, you’re baiting the shooter (perhaps unknowingly).
Thus I teach goalies to trail the shooter by a step. As the shooter passes into the next quadrant which necessitates a move on the arc, wait just one extra step before moving.
As a ballcarrier dodges from sector 3 down the alley into sector 4. Wait just an extra step before moving on your arc.
If I’m moving on the arc to keep up with a dodger running down the left-handed alley (3 to 4), I don’t step toward the pipe until he crosses my right foot (which is closest to the pipe).
This will help ensure we end up in the right place on the arc and don’t give the shooter an unknowingly large area of the goal to aim for.
Consider a Flat Arc
If you’re consistently having trouble saving shots on the run, you may consider adopting a flat arc.
A flat arc is one where the goalie sets up deeper in the goal. Sometimes almost with their heels on the goal line.
The flat arc comes with its set of disadvantages but it also comes with some advantages – primarily less movement.
Moving from spot 3 to spot 4 (referencing the diagram above) is way easier in the flat arc as there is less movement required. Really you just move your feet a tiny bit and square up the shooter.
The result is that goalies playing a flat arc will often be in better position during alley dodges than the goalies who a higher 5-point arc.
So it’s something to consider if you’re consistently getting beat by alley dodges.
Practice Shots on the Run
For goalies wondering how to get better at saving shots on the run, in addition to following the tips above, my final answer is to practice saving shots on the run.
As a goalie coach, when warming up a goalie or training a goalie in practice, be sure to shoot shots on the run.
It’s a different save type. You still need to understand the basics of making a save but saving a shot on an alley dodge is more about being in the right place on the arc and being set in a great lacrosse goalie stance.
There are tons of drills that involve shooters letting it fly while on the run. So be sure to incorporate your goalies into the action so they see their fair share of shots on the run.
Read the Shooter’s Body Language
Regarding the last part of the issue the goalie referenced in the intro: “I can’t really tell where the shot is going”.
If the shooter is outside of 8 yards, there is no need to anticipate or guess.
Just focus on picking up the ball in the shooter’s stick and seeing the shot as soon as possible. Then make the right save movement to execute the save.
If the shooter is inside of 8 yards it gets a little trickier. Since this gives us goalies way less time to react, we really need to read the shooter in order to increase the probability of making the save.
The shooter’s shoulders will give away a lot of information. Especially on shots on the run.
If they’re angled downwards at the time of the shot release, we can be reasonably sure the shot is going low.
And vice versa, if the shoulders are angled slightly upwards or even parallel to the ground, we can look for that shot to be waist and up.
Sure, there are shooters who can fake body language signals to fool the goalie but for shots under 8 yards we must read the signals we’re given. If a shooter fakes the body language of a low shot then sticks it top shelf from inside 8 yards – you know what, they deserve that goal. Move onto the next one.
Reading the shooter’s body language for shots inside of 8 yards will help the goalie get an edge and tell with more certainty where the shot is going.
Videos to Improve Shots on the Run Save
MLL goalie Brian Phipps put together a great video with tips on saving shots on the run:
Scott Rodgers also has a great instructional video about picking up a shot on the run:
Here is Tim Troutner from the PLL Redwoods breaking down his approach for saving alley dodge shots:
Finally it also helps lacrosse goalies when they know what their offensive opponent is trying to do. Check out this video from Paul Rabil where he gives tips for shooting on the run:
Saving shots on the run is something that all lacrosse goalies need in their repertoire.
It’s a common shot type. Luckily for us goalies, it’s harder to get velocity and accuracy on a shot on the run. So we really need to ensure we’re set up in great stance on the right place on the arc to limit what a shooter sees.
A benefit of the flat arc is less movement so if you’re consistently getting beat on alley dodges shots consider trying that.
Finally, if you’re struggling making saves on shots the run, practice, practice, practice until they’re no longer a problem.
Until next time! Coach Damon
Anyone have any other tips for saving shots on the run? Would love to hear about them in the comments down below.
Shooting & Dodging Academy – Millon Lacrosse
In 2017, Millon lacrosse will offer a shooting and dodging academy session at our Atlanta, Ohio, Long Island 1 and Pennsylvania sessions.
The Millon shooting and dodging academy is a player development camp designed for more skilled and advanced players ONLY. This camp will consist of no game play, feature these disciplines only, and while it will be very beneficial to the skilled player, it does not cater to players seeking to become well rounded lacrosse players as much as our regular camps. If you are interested in more of an all-around camp experience with many variations of drills, games and more, you may be better suited to attend our regular camp.

Modern pentathlon has several names: pentathlon, sports pentathlon, pentathlon. But all this is one and the same sport, or rather, a symbiosis of several sports disciplines at once. In this article, we will tell you about the most important thing you need to know about pentathlon if you are going to bet on it at a bookmaker’s office.
The modern type of pentathlon includes:
- show jumping
- running and pistol shooting
In fact, we have four sports in front of us (one of them is unique), in each of which an athlete should be equally good.Pentathletes are considered ideal athletes.
A few words about the history of this sport. The first pentathlon competitions were held at the ancient Greek Olympics. Competitors at that time were mostly soldiers.
The pentathlon got its modern look at the beginning of the twentieth century, when Pierre de Coubertin asked to include a mix of various competitions in the program of the Olympic Games. Until the middle of the century, only officers were allowed to compete.
Pentathlon consists of five sports disciplines, two of which (pistol shooting and running) are combined into one.Usually competitions are held according to the standard scheme: first fencing, then swimming, then show jumping and, as a result, mixed (shooting and running). Each individual sport has its own standard, after completing which the participant receives 250 points (300 points in show jumping). For the fact that the standard is exceeded, the athlete receives additional points. If the participant does not reach the standard, the points are removed from him.
Fencing is the first and longest stage. All participants must fight each other in a circular system.The duel goes on until the first injection. To meet the standard, you need to deliver 70% of accurate shots (that is, win 70% of fights).
Swimming – swim 200 meters freestyle. The standard is set at 2 minutes 30 seconds. For every second the excess starts to deduct points.
Show jumping. The only kind of pentathlon where 300 points are given for the fulfillment of the standard. The standard is difficult – it is necessary not only to quickly overcome the track, but also to make as few technical mistakes as possible.
Running and shooting a laser pistol is the final stage.Here, the participants are distributed at the start, depending on the points they scored in the previous stages. The athlete who has achieved the best results starts first, followed by the others in order: every 4 points of separation from the opponent allows the participant to start one second earlier. Running distance – 3000 meters, fire cutoffs – every 800 meters. In total, there are 4 firing lines at a distance, each with 5 targets. Each athlete is limited to a time frame of 50 seconds (per shooting line). The one who comes to the finish line first becomes the winner.
Types of bets on pentathlon
Bets on winning . Before the start of the competition, the bookmakers estimate the chances of winning each participant and offer their own odds. The player can bet any athlete to win.
Bets on the distribution of final places. Often there are few bets on winning (the difference in class between athletes is too obvious), so bookmakers offer bets on who will be in the top three, in the top 6 or top 10 based on the results of all competitions.
Bets on results comparison . A very interesting type of bets. The player is invited to compare which of the athletes will be higher at the end of the tournament. The intrigue is that you can compare middle-level rivals or even the weakest ones.
Bets on winning in a separate competition type . One of the most difficult bets. It is much easier to predict the winner based on the results of the entire pentathlon than to predict who will win in a particular sport. Many athletes focus on one stage in order to keep the gained advantage later.
How to bet on pentathlon
Pentathlon has a huge number of small and medium nuances that only an analyst deeply devoted to this sport can know. It is almost impossible to find a high-quality forecast for the pentathlon. Most of the experts appear during major events like the Olympic Games.
This sport depends entirely on one athlete. What form is the participant in, is he ready for a specific start, does he have health problems – all this information must be available.The importance of the competition should also be taken into account: in small competitions, sensations often happen, since the strongest athletes do not give their best on them.
When betting on individual pentathlon sports, it is worth examining the preliminary seat allocation. Often, already before the third stage (show jumping), many athletes lose their chances of being among the prize-winners, and they have an incentive to simply reach the finish line.
It is worth studying the biographies of athletes: what kind of sport he came from, how long he did and what heights he achieved.This information will help you better determine which of the participants to bet on at a particular stage of the pentathlon.
When betting on show jumping, special attention should be paid to horses. Athletes recognize their four-legged companions only 20 minutes before the start. Watch carefully the trial runs: how the horse obeys the rider, are there any hiccups when passing the most difficult elements, etc. Betting separately on show jumping is the most difficult, but also the most interesting type of bets in pentathlon.
The last type of pentathlon program (running + pistol shooting) is given to each athlete differently. Pre-investigate whether the participant had a track and field background, whether he was involved in running. Pentathletes-runners very often at the final stage snatch the lead from those who performed better in the first three stages. There are even so-called finishers, who averagely go through all the stages, and then “shoot” in the fourth and fifth types of the program.
Which bookmakers accept bets on pentathlon
Pentathlon is deprived of the attention of bookmakers.This sport only appears on bookmaker lines during the Olympic Games. It is rare to see World Pentathlon Championship bets on the bookmaker’s lines.90,000 Sports in English. Kinds of sports.

British Olympic Gold Medalist in St. Louis Decathlon – Tom Keely
The marathon champion was Thomas Hicks , although he finished second after Frederick Lorza , the latter was disqualified, as he covered part of the distance by car.
The distance of the marathon race passed along dusty roads, crossed hills and plains. Lorz , who was in the leading group, suddenly stopped twelve kilometers after the start: severe cramps brought his legs together.Some fan who followed the athletes in a car took Lorza to him.
1904 Games Marathon
Soon they overtook all competitors, and eight kilometers before the stadium Lorz said that he felt better and asked the driver to drop him out of the car. He traveled these eight kilometers on foot, but nevertheless reached the stadium, where he was greeted with a standing ovation from two thousand spectators. The orchestra played the US national anthem.President’s daughter Alice Roosevelt handed him a gold medal and was photographed for memory with the “champion”.
