it all depends on the person .... The fastest shot I have ever seen was a side arm
its more difficult than an underhand serve because you throw it in the air and try to hit it. its more easier to do an underhand serve because you hold it your hand rather than throwing it in the air. its more dangerous because it goes in a faster speed than an underhand serve.
Put simply, baseball pitchers throw overhand, while softballers pitch underhand.
It's generally accepted that a sidearm shot is considered the fastest shot, although this is different for every person. However, this is only because most people shot incorrectly overhand. If executed correctly, the overhand shot is the most powerful.Before we begin to examine how to shoot overhand, we should understand the basic physics of shooting and the speed associated. Essentially, a lacrosse stick is a third-class lever, which means that it multiplies distance. What that means is that the head of the stick will travel farther, and much faster than your hands do. Also, the farther away the head of the stick is from the fulcrum, and your hands, the faster your shot will be.How can you adjust your form so that you get the max speed? Simple. Firstly, get your hands up, and away from your body. Ideally, you want to extend them as far back as possible, and keep them above the shoulders. Next, get your hands close together. The closer they are, they faster you can shoot (if you have the strength). Finally, the shooting motion does not come from the arms, it comes from your hips and shoulders.When shooting, always remember: hands up and out and your power comes from your "hips and nips".Now, go practice. The final key to shooting fast is all practice.Also remember that in a game, you will probably not be able to shoot like this, but if you practice it the correct way, you will automatically get as close to this form as you can when shooting in a game.
kinda. it all depends on what position you play in lacrosse. lacrosse is faster because of the posistion of middie and attack they are the ones on the team that run notice how basketball players stop and dribble then shoot or pass lacrosse is always running cause of defence and the shots of lacrosse will beat bball anyday
it depends on how fast you throw it.
F.A.Q. Which is the best way to serve? Well, the one that portrays your strength the most is underhand, but overhand goes faster. When should I bump it, and when should i set or spike it? If it's under your nose, than it should be a bump, if it's over your nose, set. What are the best brands of kneepads? I say Asics. Hope this helps, Me.
not typically.. the softball is bigger than the baseball and is thrown underhand, typically making it slower. -Yes, throwing underhand is not as fast as a baseball pitch. But, in softball you have less time to react to the ball than you would in baseball. So technically softball.
The Answer is lighter because it will be easyer to use and its not holding you down.
you have to get stronger. im a freshmen in hs and play girls lax and i can shoot about 70mph. and lots of practice
depends on the shooter. if we are talking professional players than it would most likely be a hockey shot... especially a slap shot. but that's not saying a lacrosse shot isn't hard.
Mark her and her stick get in front of her or him and do an down check no up check whistle blowed
Light. Lighter stick equals faster hand speed for shooting for the most part.
On YouTube there plenty of videos of how to serve. See related links, below, for an excellent example of various serving techniques, from underhand to overhand, both standing and stepping serves, with and without spin. If you're a complete beginner to the sport, start with underhand serving and get comfortable with the motion and weight of the ball. When you're ready to start overhand serving, start with the stationary serve then work up to the stepping serve before adding spin to the serve. The secret to good serving is simply to throw high and forward, whilst stepping and jumping to meet the ball on its descent, forward of the base line (without touching the court until the ball is hit, obviously). Hit the ball with the heel of your hand to gain maximum punch, at the highest point you can reach and with maximum effort. The higher and more forward you can jump the better, as the ball can effectively be propelled downwards over the net, rather than up and over the net; and the faster you can serve, the more difficult it will be for your opponents to recover the ball for a setup and return. Of course serving the ball is one thing, serving with accuracy is quite another, but that will come with practice. Good luck and, above all, enjoy yourself.
No, lacrosse is not the same thing as field hockey. In field hockey you use a stick with a curved base on the ground and hit it to your team mate, or you can dribble it up the field. The goal in field hockey is much bigger than a lacrosse goal. In lacrosse you throw and catch a ball using a stick with a net and you can run with the ball in you stick. Lacrosse is a much faster paced game too. In lacrosse you wear eye protection and a mouth guard, in field hockey you wear shin guards and a mouth guard. Both sports are really fun.
Lacrosse doesn't necessarily require certain shoes. When playing, most people use tennis shoes or cleats. This is because its easier to run faster in those types of shoes and they don't have to worry about them coming off when running
Pockets have deepened allowing players to run faster with the ball and not as afraid that they will drop it. Also, defense has gotten more physical to stop attackers from scoring, goalies have faster reflexes, the game in general has become faster and more physical.
i once thought that winding up made me throw harder then someone had a radar gun and there was no difference when i throw normally
That is a very opinionated question. Although, in my opinion it is better because it is faster paced and takes more energy than baseball.
The growth of lacrosse was also facilitated by the introduction of plastic stick heads in the 1970s by Baltimore-based STX. This innovation reduced the weight and cost of the lacrosse stick. It also allowed for faster passes and game play than traditional wooden sticks.
Yes you can dye the head with the mesh in it but the dye will spread faster in the mesh then in the plastic and it will only be the darkest color you dye your head (if multi-colored).
You make the shooting strings looser so you can throw down. Also, if you have whip you will shoot faster so loosen your shooting strings now.
whip is the snap in the stick that will generally push the ball down towards the ground. The more whip the lower ( and generally faster) throw, and the less whip the higher the throw.
Gotten from http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:UnAnsweredQ&tid=2982 * Underhand and Overhand Serve: refers to whether the player strikes the ball from below, at waist level, or first tosses the ball in the air and then hits it above shoulder level. Underhand serve is considered very easy to receive and is rarely employed in high-level competitions. * Sky Ball Serve: a specific type of underhand serve occasionally used in beach volleyball, where the ball is hit so high it comes down almost in a straight line. This serve was invented and employed almost exclusively by the Brazilian team in the early 1980s and is now considered outdated. In Brazil, this serve is called Jornada nas Estrelas (Star Trek). * Line and Cross-Court Serve: refers to whether the ball flies in a straight trajectory parallel to the side lines, or crosses through the court in an angle. * Top Spin: an overhand serve where the ball gains topspin through wrist snapping. This spin causes the ball to drop faster than it appears to a passer receiving it. * Floater: an overhand serve where the ball is hit with no spin so that its path becomes unpredictable. This type of serve can be administered while jumping or standing. This is akin to a knuckleball in baseball. * Jump Serve: an overhand serve where the ball is first tossed high in the air, then the player makes a timed approach and jumps to make contact with the ball. There is usually much topspin imparted on the ball. This is the most popular serve amongst college and professional teams.* Jump Float: This is a serve like the jump serve and the floater. The ball is tossed lower than a topspin jump serve, but contact is still made while in the air. This serve is becoming more popular amongst college and professional players because it has a certain unpredictability in its flight pattern. * Round-House Serve: the player stands with one shoulder facing the net, tosses the ball high and hits it with a fast circular movement of the arm. The ball is hit with the palm of the hand, creating a lot of topspin. * Hybrid Serve: An overhand serve delivered similarly to a top spin serve; however, it has more pace than a floater, but has a similar unpredictable path.
