Lacrosse Sweep Shot – Instructions

Lacrosse Sweep Shot – Instructions

This page looks at a lacrosse sweep shot. This shooting technique involves shooting while moving across the field versus shooting while moving towards the goal.

A sweep is often used by offensive players driving in from the wing. It is a difficult shot because the player is shooting while moving diagonally away from the goal versus a more traditional shot done moving towards the goal. Players must practice this shot frequently in order to perfect this technique. See the video below for a good lacrosse sweep shot drill.

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