Men’s Backyard Lacrosse Drills Roundup

While we’re stuck at home with nothing to do but play backyard lacrosse, we thought we’d throw it back to some of Team STX’s go-to drills for sharpening their core skills. From goalie strategies to fake-outs to behind-the-cage runarounds with PLL All-Star Will Manny, we’ve got your Skill & Drill round-up for every day of the week:

1. How to Dominate 5 and 5 with Attacker Justin Guterding, PLL Chrome

The Duke Blue Devils’ alum takes us through the scoring options when you are 5 yards up & out from the goal line while being defended. 

Get Guterding’s set-up here with the Sc-Ti Alloy Handle and Stallion Omega Head.

2. Goalie Tips for Saving Off Hip Shots with Kyle Bernlohr, PLL Whipsnakes

Former University of Maryland goalie Kyle Bernlohr breaks down why he thinks of the cage as a wall — and how this mentality helps his form to get more saves. 

Defend your turf with Bernlohr’s tried and true weapon of choice: the Outlet Goalie Alloy Handle and Eclipse II Goalie Head.

3. How to Do a Twister Shot with Ian MacKay, PLL Archers

The University of Vermont alum demonstrates how to master this fake-out shot.
