This dodge is taught less and less, but it’s a beauty. Why is it taught less, and why should it be taught more? Does this dodge require a higher lacrosse IQ? How similar is it to the rocker step in terms of set up? The Z dodge is definitely a hard dodge to pull off and set up in games.
One of my favorite things about teaching the fundamentals of face-offs is that the improvement can happen instantly. Eventually it’s the little things that separate good face-off men from great face-off men.

With the proliferation of tournaments and showcase camps, elite level instructional opportunities have become more and more rare. When you look at the numbers, this trend seems to be backwards simply because so many new players are picking up the sport. There are more opportunities to play the sport than every before but not as many opportunities to learn and develop skills from talented teachers.
Week Three of the Club Directors Panel finds us discussing how many tournaments a club should participate in, and how these clubs select those events. Should you play in three tournaments or five? If you play in too few events are you risking not being seen by coaches? If you play in too many events, are you risking injury or being over exposed?
Understanding stick protection is key to playing lacrosse but especially as an attackman. It’s all about keeping your body between the defensemen and your stick.
