Developing Improvisational Lacrosse Skills through Keep Awayby Jamie Munro
There are so many skills that can be learned from “Keep Away”. Understanding how defenders try to attack ball handlers and how they position themselves to cut off passing options. Putting oneself into as many different lacrosse situations as possible is the ultimate key to success. Better understanding how different defenders operate in different scenarios is yet another crucial piece in the puzzle to empowering player development.
Beyond learning more about how defenders behave in “Keep Away” situations, there is a lot that can be learned from the offensive side of the ball as well. Players can see different off-ball offensive tendencies, learn the techniques to deceive defenders of where passes are aimed, and much more.
