The match starts when a duck is placed between two players for “The Face.”
“Long Throwing” is a fast way to gain major ground by launching a duck with a side-throwing motion.
The most common shot in Duck Lacrosse is the “Over Shot,” where the duck is launched at high speed with an overhand motion.
The “Dodge and Check” is a method of shielding the duck in the net while spinning around an opponent.
Here a player takes a shot on goal. A point is scored when the duck penetrates the plane, an imaginary wall rising from the goal line to the top of the net.
