Greyhound: Level of Play Greyhound is appropriate for teams with good stickwork that are capable of executing the necessary passes for the completion of this play. Greyhound is very effective if a team has a good outside shooter. Level of Play (Greyhound)
Greyhound: Set-up This is a 3-3 roll off play that results in a “time and room” shot. The players should line up in a 3-3 set. Ideally X5 should be a good outside shooter, X3 and X6 good feeders, and X2 should be a good cutter and inside shooter. Also, X1 should be able to read plays to recognize whether to cut or set a pick. It would also be beneficial if X4 is a good outside shooter. Set-up (Greyhound)
Greyhound: Set-up X4 X3 X6 X5 X2 X1 Ideally, X5 is a good outside shooter. Ideally, X6 is a good feeder. Ideally, X3 is a good feeder. Ideally, X2 is both a good outside and inside shooter. Ideally, X1 is a good cutter. Ideally, X4 is a good outside shooter.
Greyhound: Execution The ball moves around the perimeter before it is transferred from the top middle (X1) to the high right wing (X5) and then to the low right wing (X4). X4 wants to make sure that he is wide when he catches this pass so a defender can’t pressure him. As the all is throw to X4, the crease player (X6) gets low on the crease and ready to roll off. X4 then carries towards the high wing, while X6 rolls off the crease to replace X4… Execution (Greyhound)
Greyhound: Execution Continued As X4 and X6 are carrying and filling, X1 begins to cut to the vacated area on the crease, X3 begins to back up behind GLE, X5 drifts toward the middle, and X2 drifts towards the backside. X4 throws the ball to X6 who immediately looks to X1 cutting into the middle of the crease. If X1 is open then X6 should feed the crease. Otherwise, the ball should move from X6 across the back of the cage to X3 behind GLE… Execution (Greyhound Cont.)
Greyhound: Execution Continued At this time, X2 wants to start cutting down the backside looking for an open area or a defender to seal. X5 should drift across the field and find an open area to establish their feet for a “time and room” shot. As X3 catches the ball, they should look to X1 on the cut, or to X5 for an outside shot. Execution (Greyhound Cont.)
Greyhound: Execution If X5 doesn’t have a shot, X5 can pass across to X4 who can look for his shot, or for X6 on the bottom right. Otherwise, X2 can circle back off the crease, and play out of the 3-3 set.
Greyhound: Final Thoughts Greyhound is a very successful play that is run at all levels of the game. Teams that use this play need to practice it a great deal in order to best establish timing on the various cuts and seals. If the timing on these moves is not synchronized then the play will fail. The base players, X4, X6 and X3 need to drop behind GLE in order to move the ball around the entire perimeter, which will force the defense to turn its head. Greyhound: Final Thoughts
