Trick Skills Saturday is back again with a little flavor from up North.
This week, our focus is the Saucer Pass. My fellow intern Tanner Job informed me on a new style of passing that he picked up from and his Simon Fraser Clansmen teammates, which often use the saucer in box lacrosse.
When throwing the saucer pass, it’s important that you keep your head parallel to the ground. This creates a spin on the ball that will lift the ball from your head, travel in an arch and drop it right down into your teammates stick.
If I had to use my best guess, I would assume the pass is named after hockey’s saucer pass, which is where players pass the puck up off the ice so that it has a better chance of getting to a teammate due to it traveling over the sticks and skates that are on the ground level.
Think you can one up me? Let’s see what you got! Send in your homemade stick trick videos for a chance to be featured on next week’s Stick Trick Saturday! Check out previous week’s videos if this one seems a little advanced!
