Recently several of the Major League Lacrosse’s top players talked about what make the RipNet Scoring videos unlike anything seen in the sport today. So far RipNet has released 11 scoring videos for men and 8 for women.

The biggest difference between the RipNet videos and other lacrosse instructional videos is that a goalie, Rochester Rattler’s John Galloway, is telling you and showing how to be a better scorer.
Billy Bitter, MLL All Star attackman, said, “There’s only one person on the field that ultimately knows about scoring, and that’s the goalie. Learning what goalies are taught to do will make any offensive player a better scorer. As an offensive player, I always find it more helpful to get tips from a goalie. Goalies are the ones getting scored on and they know their weaknesses, which in the end, become the offensive player’s strength.”

“Every other scoring video comes from the shooters perspective, which is fine, but the RipNet videos give you a different perspective. John touches on goaltending tendencies and things goalies are taught, he puts you in the goaltenders head, he lets you know what the goaltender is thinking,” said MLL ace Jordan MacIntosh.

Another thing that separates the RipNet videos from the usual lacrosse video is the unprecedented production quality. The videos were filmed in all black universe with super high resolution, high animation, super slow motion and dynamic graphics to increase a players understanding on how to score on every opportunity.

“The way the videos were filmed, was great. They really allow a player to concentrate on what is being explained. I think it is beneficial to see the shooter technique wise and at the same time see the goalie positioning and reaction, said MLL record holder for most goals in a game, Grant Catalino.

Bitter concurred, “Every RipNet How To Score video is well made with in-depth yet easy to understand instruction.”

MLL Charlotte Hound Jovan Miller said, “my favorite video is “Using the Screen”, I think it gives any middie great perspective on why it is so effective how to use it properly.”
Goal scoring long pole Joel White even jumped in to say, “My favorite video is “Disguising the Stick”. It is about hiding the stick head while shooting. So many young players in the game nowadays are dropping their sticks or shooting sidearm, allowing goalies and defenders to know where and when they are releasing the shot.”

How valuable are the videos for the developing player? MacIntosh answered, “I think the videos are the best tutorial videos you will find.”

RipNet scoring videos for women are also getting rave reviews. NCAA tournament scoring leader and US National Team player Katrina Dowd said, “The videos are unlike anything ever seen in the lacrosse world.”
