It's generally accepted that a sidearm shot is considered the fastest shot, although this is different for every person. However, this is only because most people shot incorrectly overhand. If executed correctly, the overhand shot is the most powerful.

Before we begin to examine how to shoot overhand, we should understand the basic physics of shooting and the speed associated. Essentially, a Lacrosse stick is a third-class lever, which means that it multiplies distance. What that means is that the head of the stick will travel farther, and much faster than your hands do. Also, the farther away the head of the stick is from the fulcrum, and your hands, the faster your shot will be.

How can you adjust your form so that you get the max speed? Simple. Firstly, get your hands up, and away from your body. Ideally, you want to extend them as far back as possible, and keep them above the shoulders. Next, get your hands close together. The closer they are, they faster you can shoot (if you have the strength). Finally, the shooting motion does not come from the arms, it comes from your hips and shoulders.

When shooting, always remember: hands up and out and your power comes from your "hips and nips".

Now, go practice. The final key to shooting fast is all practice.

Also remember that in a game, you will probably not be able to shoot like this, but if you practice it the correct way, you will automatically get as close to this form as you can when shooting in a game.
