When does a player slide in lacrosse, and where does he slide to?

Asked by thequestion123 (233points) July 31st, 2014

This is my first year playing lacrosse, and I practice constantly everyday. I started using the long pole at the end of the season and then I learned about slides. I just want to know exactly what player slides to what position and when. I am not just looking for the slides made by the long poles. But for every position in any scenario.

From my daughter: A slide is generally when the other team has the ball and you usually slide when the person with the ball is entering the attack area and going to the goal to shoot. The defender will “slide” and try to push the attacker away from the goal so they won’t shoot. Another time you slide is when the other team gets a breakaway and therefore the middies are behind so the defense has to take over and “slide” to either slow down the person down.
