Long Stick Middie

by Gerg Ottag

Can a long stick middie play offense? I want to be a LSM, but I still want to score. Any drills for LSMs?

Middies are by design both offensive and defensive players. Long stick middies are no exception. Handled correctly that long stick gives a huge advantage on defense and on scooping up face-off ground-balls. But clearly good long pole middies are excellent in transitioning the ball up the field into the offensive zone and I have personally seen many long pole breaks that result in goals. It is one of the most exciting plays in lacrosse in my opinion.

If however your main goal is to be an offensive player focus on the short stick. You get a much quicker shot and will be more effective. If you love to run the field and be the dominant defensive middie on the field then master the long pole.

have fun,

Long stick middie

I am not in favor of the long stick middie- it's not how the game was meant to be played. However, given it's existence, here is an idea. Similar to the "post" position in basketball, put a long stick mid in a quasi crease attack position, he can hold his stick as high as he can, then pass the ball up high to him where no one can reach it except him. He will become the most prolific scorer on the team!
