Elite Motion Coach: John Grant Jr.

Elite Motion Coach had over 50 kids attend “Secrets of Scoring” Clinic this past weekend in Millersville, MD. The slow motion video technology was used to break down John Grant Jr’s shot.

John showed the kids on the slow motion monitor his technique on shooting in close. John also did a lot of one on one coaching and drills with kids on how to score in close. Check out the video from the clinic below.

Lacrosse Playground

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.

    The clinic was alot of fun
    John showed the kids how to use the body to protect the stick in close
    John is an excellent scorer in close because he doesnt waste time with spin moves around the crease
    He showed the kids that a quick release in close is just as important as a time and room crank shot
    Defensemen are too fast with slides and too good with trail checks
    The Canadian invasion is here
    It is about time someone starting coaching the backhand seriously
    Its not just a trick shot or hot dog move
    My guess is alot of coaches in Severna Park will be talking about the backhand…one way or the other
