What Difference Can Improving Your Shot Speed Make?

Speed and agility skills are the key to success in lacrosse. With proper training and practice, you can improve your shot speed and become a better overall player. The average speed of a lacrosse shot lies somewhere in the range of 70-80 mph for the recreational lacrosse player. Professional players can hit speeds up to 110 mph. However, age, strength, and level of experience are major factors in determining the average shot speed for a specific individual. So why does this matter? Check out different reaction times, using a baseline of 60 feet to start – a decently long shot where velocity can change the dynamic.

By the time that you’re getting to 30 feet and 90 miles per hour, there is virtually no time to react. Combined with good shot selection and accuracy, no goalie will be able to stop you.
