I know this thread isn't the newest but, I have been playing lacrosse for about 12 years now and in my junior year of college and coach for St. John Vianney who had their best season in program history. 

I don't know your specific skill level right now, but I will give the basics and then go into more advanced stuff.
1. Learn to use both your right and left hand. I can't stress this enough!!! The biggest way to tell if someone is advanced or an elite player in lacrosse is if they can dodge both down the left and right alley or catch, throw, carry, and shoot comfortably with their off hand. I spent most of high school depending on using my right hand and just beating people with athleticism or me being better than them. The problem with college is they are all of the best players from their respective states and you will no longer have the advantages you were used to.
2. Condition all the time. If you are able to run sprints comfortably for long periods of time and don't get too out of breath you will be in a good place. You need oxygen for your brain to work at it's full potential and if you are out of breath your late game decisions won't be as crisp as if you were calm and didn't have to focus on 100 other things than the game.
3. Join a fall and summer league. The best way to get better at lacrosse is to join a team at your skill level and then try to move up from there and play in out of state tournaments. Lacrosse tournaments are naturally relaxed and fun, but some of the best competition you will ever go against will be there. I remember playing at Marquette's prospect camp in Wisconsin against players who now play at the D1 level.
4. Watch lacrosse and try out new things you see. I watch film of myself and other teams constantly to learn what I am doing wrong or what other people are doing that will work for them .

Now for some more specific stuff I wish people had told me when I was younger.

If you are playing defense the biggest thing you need to do is take away top side and make contact. This means don't let them dodge down the middle of the field. When someone you are guarding takes top side the entire slide package (unless you run something like a backer zone) will be out of wack and if they move the ball someone will be open on the backside.

When you shoot try to shoot overhand as much as possible and hide the head of your stick behind your body. Goalies save the ball 75% of the time because they watch your stick the entire time and see where the ball is going to end up before the ball even comes out (three time all american told me that). If you are shooting down the right alley dip your shoulder and pull your hands back and hide it so they can track your stick for just a little less time.

Unless you are a faceoff guy there is next to no reason to have crazy amounts of tilt. I fogo for my university as well as play mid field on occasion and I only have tilt so I can see the ball better in scraps at the X. Every other part of my game is hindered because my helmets is so low. People hype up having tilt too much. I'd rather be able to see what is going on than think that I look cool.

Finally, find some friends to play catch with or play wall ball. This is a perfect time to relax and think about what is going on in your life. Think of this as you would shower thoughts. Passing and throwing should become such an easy thing that you no longer have to think if you are going to throw a behind the back pass or catch it righty or lefty.

Sorry for the long message, but it didn't seem like anyone else played lacrosse and I wish someone had told me some of these things when I first started to play.
