Learning how to stall the ball on the sidewall of your lacrosse stick can lead to better performance with the ball on the field. But shoot – if you’re reading this you’re likely already a stick trick aficionado. The last thing you need from me is a lesson on the benefits of spending quality time with your lacrosse stick.

For those who don’t know me, my name is Jeff. I’m a twenty-nine year old who gets more and more passionate for the game of lacrosse every single day. Mark asked me to take a swing at guest hosting STS this week, so here goes!

If you’re an avid lacrosse enthusiast, you likely already know how to easily pull off a stall. By the time you’re my age, you can do a stall with your eyes closed.

Something that isn’t as easy is landing stall after stall up to the double digits, all without dropping that pearly white biscuit. If you can stall a long time and end with a cool transition, suddenly you’ll have yourself a combo that will demolish your friend’s.

This week, I challenge to stall 10 times in row. Catch the ball on one sidewall and then tossing it up and catch it on the other, back and forth, until you’ve achieved 5 stalls on each side. Next, tee yourself up lacrosse-style and smack that biscuit home! Pace out how far you hit it, and prove it all on camera. I might even hook you up with a Grow The Game tee if you can beat my distance!

4 Easy Steps

  1. Complete 10 Stalls (5 per side of head)
  2. Throw the ball up and hit it as far as you can
  3. Count out your distance and get it all on film
  4. Send in your video with the instructions below!

If you’re playing along, please email your entry to using subject line “Stick Trick Entry – Week 6″, include your full name, and consider proper punctuation! ;-)
