Welcome to "A Lacrosse Weekend," my weekly compilation of thoughts, ideas, history, stories, myths/truths, about the great game of lacrosse! I hope you find it enjoyable.
Let's talk a little bit about hesitation moves. I'm in the process of putting together instructional videos on skills in men's and women's lacrosse. I'm trying to cover every skill and every variation. There are so many amazing techniques! I am endeavoring to identify each skill variation with the intent of teaching players how to do it all!
Quick thoughts on hesitations: Basketball players use hesitation moves constantly and this should be studied. Whether to get a step, buy time, or looking off the basket after they beat their man freezing shot blockers, there are many different and effective techniques that are 100% applicable to lacrosse. Hesitations make defenders late; on ball defenders, sliders, and 2nd sliders... hesitations make them all late.
