Keywords: Lacrosse ; MLL ; Sports ; SAS JMP ; Analytics ; Visual

Statistical analysis in the game of professional field lacrosse is very much in its infancy. In the spring and summer of 2016, the William Penn High School Sports Analytics Club collected data contributing to attempted shots from the 2015-2016 Major League Lacrosse (MLL) regular seasons. Using SAS JMP Pro 12 software package, the club will analyze offensive indicators such as shooter, primary and secondary assists, shot location zone, shot initiation, shot type, handedness, distance from net, and shot result to answer previously unanswerable questions in Major League Lacrosse.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
