Three Tips To Help Win The Draw In Lacrosse
Get Your Hand As Close As You Can To The Plastic
Getting your hand closer to the plastic of the head will give you the best control and power under the ball.
Keep Your Eyes On the Ref
Looking at the Referee allows you to see when she is about to blow the whistle. This can give you a jump start on your opponent.
Lower Your Butt End Under The Height Of The Head
