Denver Outlaws General Manager, Tony Seaman, tells you about one of the most important aspects of the face-off, beyond just the draw itself, which is wing play. One of the most varied aspects of lacrosse in relation to a team’s theory, is how to effectively play the wing on the face-off. However, coach Seaman breaks it down simply and provides excellent whiteboard illustration and explanation to convey the concepts.

The Face-Off: Wing Play

Athlete Movements: Your wings will line up hip-to-hip with the opponent and then move to shield them, preventing the opponent from gaining an advantage once the ball comes loose. Coach Seaman explains in simple terms exactly what the wing players should be doing to fulfill their responsibilities.

Teaching Points:

  • Communication between the middies and their teammate taking the face-off
  • Make sure your players are hip-to-hip with the opponent in order to block them
