Decision-making, positioning, and shot blocking are key skills. cover point - usually the best one-on-one defender who relies on speed and footwork to mark the second home. The Third man - primary duty is disturbing the attack in the midfield, looks to intercept passes and quickly pick up an open attacker center - a pivotal player in transition from defense to offense, also controls the draw. Defense wings - matches the speed and endurance of the attack wings to gain possession of the ball Goalkeeper - attempts to save each shot with her stick, but can also use any body part to keep the ball out of the goal Youth Girl’s Lacrosse Positions
