The last time the NCAA tried to install some college lacrosse face off rule changes, the face off community reacted with a focused passion, and some of the rules (no motorcycle grip for example) were not adopted.

Everywhere we look, people seem to be talking about making lacrosse safer in one way or another. It ranges from hitting being reigned in at the collegiate level through new rules, to concussion studies, a debate about helmets for girls in Florida, and beyond.
A couple of months back, we put up a couple of tradmesh pockets photos on Instagram that I dubbed Trameshional. Perhaps that name is stupid, but I’d never seen this variation of tradmesh done before, even though I’m sure it has been. People asked for a tutorial, I took my sweet time in making one, and now it’s here.
The National Federation for High Schools Sports (NFHS) has released new high school lacrosse rule changes for 2015, and many of them echo the moves in the college game. While many of the rules will impact the game in one way or another, one rule will definitely impact a number of players, and that is the 4″ rule for shooting strings. Say goodbye to U and V shooters!
Miles Thompson was named Coke Player of the Game for the Rochester Rattlers this past weekend, and he did so on the back of a 5 goal, 1 assist effort. One Miles Thompson Goal was particularly amazing. When asked about why that night was special, Miles said his new traditional stick was starting to get dialed in.
Both the Chesapeake Bayhawks and Charlotte Hounds experienced first to worst seasons this Summer in Major League Lacrosse. Did everyone else in the league just get that much better? Did Chesapeake and Charlotte get that much worse? Or is something else going on? Is it possible that the gap in parity was so slim this year that a seemingly wacky season was actually the norm?

Timo Samson brings you an update on the 2014 Den Haag Beach Lacrosse Tournament, which is held annually in the Netherlands. This is a great example of the lacrosse community growing in Europe, and a decade ago, this event did not exist.
The Stanwick Lacrosse Camp is run down in Maryland, and we were lucky enough to get photos from the camp from Craig Chase. The early premise of this post focuses on the traditional sticks on display at the camp, but it quickly degenerates into Scott Rodgers doing bicep curls with campers, ice bucket challenges, and other tomfoolery.
I found this amazing Vail Lacrosse Video from the 1996 version of the Shootout, and it’s nothing short of awesome. It’s also making me think about the good old days of Summer lacrosse, where the STARS came out to play against the rest of us! Who is playing in the Vail Lacrosse Video from way back in 1996? Where do I even start?
