Example text

You overrun the ball, and your stick is too close to your feet.  Begin shortening your strides sooner to get your body and feet balanced before the ball arrives.  Your stick is too far from the ground, and you are not in balance.  Keep your heels off the ground and bend your knees to prepare the stick to play the ball.  Change from slow to fast is not quick.  Push forcefully off your back foot to quickly accelerate.  Change from fast to slow is not deceptive.  Keep your head and upper body leaning forward to prevent defenders from quickly spotting the change of pace.

Keep your feet shoulder­width apart and weight evenly distributed on the balls of your feet.  In your approach to the ball, you cross your back foot in front of your lead foot, preventing a quick change of direction.  Keep your feet shoulder­width apart and do not cross your feet.  In your "give" footwork, you cross your lead foot in front of your back foot, preventing a quick change of direction.  Keep your feet shoulder­width apart and do not cross your feet.  You cross your feet, preventing a quick change of direction.

Lunge with only the left hand gripping the stick when time and distance prevent using the two­handed receiving grip. • Body balance is the same as forehand receiving. • Place left hand in front of right and in line with the right knee. • Once you receive the ball on your left side or reverse, move the ball immediately to your right side in a multiple­threat position.  Your push pass comes off the ground.  Finish your follow­through with the head of the stick low along the ground.  Your pass is inaccurate.
