Lacrosse – Slap Check

Lacrosse – Slap Check

This page provide details for a lacrosse slap check. This check involves “slapping” at an opponent’s hands and stick (usually when you are on the run). However, this stick check can be called for a slashing penalty if you accidentally hit a player’s back or side. Always aim for your opponent’s hands.

For instructions on other stick checks (i.e. poke check, ding dong check or kayak check), please the main Lacrosse Stick Checks section.
