What is the Phantom System? Success in lacrosse requires two things: a good pocket and good form. Most beginners have bad pockets, and a bad pocket doesn’t work with good form. Even with a good pocket, beginners naturally use bad form. Think of how everyone throws a baseball for the first time. Bad form is guaranteed because it's natural. Learning good form is the key to everything that’s fun about lacrosse.
STEP 1: Use the Phantom Pocket all the time. The Phantom Pocket is amazing with good form, but it doesn’t work well with natural beginner form. It teaches good form, so players can improve and have fun playing. Other pockets let a player throw like a beginner forever, and practicing bad form never becomes good form — it’s a completely different motion. Using a Phantom Pocket is the fastest way for a player to reach their goals.
STEP 2: Watch the Good Form videos. Once you learn what to look for, you’ll see that almost all youth players and many intermediate players have natural beginner form. No one can be an advanced player if they still throw like a beginner. Best of all, the Good Form videos are free, easy to follow and include key tips that other videos miss.
Who needs the Phantom System? Youth players and new HS players have natural beginner form. Players who learn good form are the early stars. If intermediate players still have some beginner bad habits (like not pulling with their bottom hand), they’re not going to improve until they get help.
What happens after a player learns good form? Once a player learns to throw like a pro, they have the judgment to use a mesh pocket (and they can learn to string). But before a player learns good form, they can’t tell if their problem is their form, their pocket or both. Using the Phantom Pocket removes these variables and gives clear feedback: the better a player’s form, the better the pocket works.
Is it legal? Yes. The Phantom Pocket is game legal in US youth and US high school games and at all levels in Canada, England and Germany.
