Wondering how to improve your game?
First and foremost, use your stick a lot! Play catch. If no one else has a lacrosse stick, have your partner get a baseball/softball glove. Throwing against a wall is also very helpful (with your protective gear on!). As you get better try to get closer and throw straight at the wall with your stick up in a high "high 5" position. And like us on Facebook to keep up with idea for a lacrosse wall in Milton!
