Nike Lacrosse Tip: Stick Grip Suggestions To Beginners By Camp Director Tony Lowe
Proper hand grip is essential in lacrosse. Many beginners hold the stick incorrectly. The back of the stick should go where your palm meets your fingers, NOT in the middle of your palm. This enables you to stick your thumb on the side of your stick, making your wrist bend away from your body. This allows you to cradle the ball and helps your throwing accuracy.
We open our camp at the Vero Beach Sports Village with correcting flaws in player’s grip and form. Ball handling and throwing accuracy are crucial to your success.
Tony Lowe, Camp Director of the Vero Beach, Florida Nike Lacrosse Camp:
Tony Lowe grew up playing lacrosse for Long Island powerhouse Ward Melville High School, winning a State Title in 1997 and finishing Second in 1998. During his senior year, he was second on Long Island in goals (60) and points (109). His play earned him a scholarship to Lehigh University in the prestigious Patriot League. While there, Tony was voted athlete of the year in 2002 and 2003. He finished eighth in the country in goals-scored in 2002 and led all of Division 1 in goals scored in 2003. He founded LearnLax Academy in 2004, Snipers Lacrosse in 2009, and is a Camp Director for Nike in the summer.
Learn more from Tony Lowe this summer at the Nike Boys Lacrosse Camp at Historic Dodgertown, in Vero Beach, Florida. Camp will run July, 19-22. Practice and scrimmages take place on two regulation grass fields located just steps from the "town homes" where overnight campers stay three per room. Between sessions, campers are provided all-you-can-eat meals in the Dodgertown Cafeteria and will have access to the olympic size pool.
As the sport strengthens in Florida, this camp presents an incredible opportunity for youth players to improve their fundamental skills, and for high school players to focus on advanced position-specific drills and an overall intense level of competition.
