Top 10 Tips for Attackmen is a great site for guidance and advice on playing better lacrosse. One great section is their 34 Tips for Attackmen. Here are my top 10:

  • Make your defense man play you and you alone every second you are in the game.

  • When you have the ball, never stand still - keep moving all the time.

  • Always move to meet every pass, and circle away from your defense man.

  • When you have the ball, be constantly faking passes - keep your defense man's stick moving.

  • Never try to force in, with the ball or by a pass, if the defense is drawn in. Pull them out first.

  • Never stand so close together that one man can cover two attack men.

  • Always have oneman behind the goal to back up shots.

  • Make full cuts - go through and out - don't cut at half speed or hand around the crease after your cut.

  • All feed passes should be thrown directly overhand - not sidearm.

  • When you lose the ball, ride it. The close attack must ride and ride hard until the ball is past midfield.
