Lacrosse – Behind The Back Shooting

Lacrosse Behind The Back Shooting – Instructions

This page focuses on instructions for lacrosse behind the back shooting (or BTB shooting). Behind the back shooting is used when a lacrosse player is faced with a difficult angle (i.e. near goal line extended) and if he used a regular “front” shot, it would be a low percentage (small angle) scoring opportunity. Therefore, the player utilizes a behind the back shot in order to get a better (slightly wider) angle on the goal. It is also a shot that surprises many goalies as a BTB shot is hard to see and anticipate.

For instructions on other shooting techniques (i.e. elevator shots), please visit the main Lacrosse Shooting section.
