New York, September 9, 2011 – Maverik Lacrosse today released Part 2 of its Maverik U defensive videos, “Set Up featuring Joe Cinosky.” In “Set Up,” Maverik athlete and defensive great Joe Cinosky explains how to set up by anticipating an attackman’s change of direction.

“If you know an attackmen’s weak hand you can bait him to go where you want. This will allow you to set up your check when he changes direction,” said Cinosky. “Even if you miss your check you are still in a great position to recover and match up against his strong hand.”

Cinosky’s lacrosse career highlights include being a member of Team USA which won the gold at the 2010 World Championships in Manchester, England and winning a Major League Lacrosse Championship with the Toronto Nationals in 2009. Joe currently plays professionally for the Chesapeake Bayhawks in Major League Lacrosse and for the Minnesota Swarm in the NLL. Cinosky’s high school career was equally as impressive. Joe was a 2X High School Defenseman of the Year, 2X All-American and was instrumental in Mountain Lakes High School capturing the New Jersey State Championship his senior year.
