A good understanding of the fundamentals and biomechanics of shooting a lacrosse ball will allow any coach or parent to help their young player achieve their potential.
There hasn't been the depth of biomechanical research in lacrosse shooting as some of the other athletic movements. There are striking similarities between the biomechanics of a baseball pitch, javelin throw, tennis serves, golf swing and the biomechanics of the lacrosse shot however. These similarities and the research into these other athletic movements helps deepen our understanding of what contributes to optimal lacrosse shot mechanics. Most of the interest in these other movements is in projectile velocity rather than accuracy and that applies also to the lacrosse shot. The time-and-room shot is just one of many shots in lacrosse, but the mechanics can be applied in part to the other shots (Figure 1).
