  • 9. Hitting
    • Point shoulders and feet toward your target. Bend your knees
    • Line the ball up level with your foot
    • Keep your hands together with a shortened grip
    • Focus on the back of the ball

    • You want to start in an athletic stance. Feet shoulder width apart, weight even on both balls of the feet and forearms parallel to the ground
    • Grab the stick with your palms facing out
    • Your head should be up watching the ball
    • When the ball reaches your stick you want to “give” with the stick so the ball will stop in front of you

  • 11. Tackling
    • Basic athletic stance
    • Have the stick low to the ground
    • Make sure your feet are always moving and try to get the person with the ball to go toward your stick side (this will make it easier to tackle)
    • When you are ready to tackle, extend the stick with your left hand to jab under the ball
    • Fake jabs also may be successful
