Welcome to Throwback Thursday! Today’s post will focus on wooden lacrosse sticks, but there is so much more to say and see that a video was quite simply required.
Was there a lot of traditional at the World Lacrosse Championships? Yes there was, and I figured there would be at least a bit, but in the end there was WAY MORE TRADITIONAL than I thought there would be.
This post will cover the FIL World Lacrosse Championships as objectively as possible, and talk about as much of the the good, the bad, and the ugly, as is humanly possible.
Lacrosse withdrawal is a serious thing, and if you were out at the 2014 FIL World Lacrosse Championhips in Denver, CO, this Summer, you’re probably feeling it pretty hard right now.
Connor caught a LOT of lacrosse games off the beaten path. Check out the new World Lacrosse Championships Video and find the LaxAllStars Channel on YouTube for continued FIL visual excellence!
Canada Lacrosse beats a seemingly unbeatable Team USA 8-5 in the World Lacrosse Championship finals and all hell breaks lose. Honestly, I’d expect nothing less!
I took on Brodie Merrill in the third installment of Connor Versus, and I actually won! How did I pull that off? Well, I challenged Brodie right after a Canada scrimmage/practice, totally sandbagged him, and only picked events that I thought I could win.
We are out in Denver, CO for the World Lacrosse Championships, and while we’re extremely busy getting Thailand ready for their first ever WLC appearance, we’re also all over the place, checking in with teams, watching practices, and scoping out all the fresh new gear.

What goes in to making a trip to the World Lacrosse Championships successful? You have to do a lot of work leading up to the event, and then you need to make that final push in the final two weeks.

We now know the 23 men who will represent Team USA at the 2014 World Lacrosse Championships this July in Denver, so it’s finally time to take a deeper look at USA Lacrosse, and their chances of repeating as World Champions.
Many of you noticed that Miles Thompson had stopped using a traditional pocket when he joined Major League Lacrosse’s Rochester Rattlers. Some said he was now a “mesh guy”, but the more likely explanation for the switch is that a traditional pocket takes time to break in, and Miles had used a Nike head in college, which he couldn’t use in the MLL, because of manufacturer deals. But now he’s back with a new Miles Thompson MLL Traditional pocket!
We are inching ever closer to the FIL World Lacrosse Championships in Denver, and therefore it’s time for another Denver 2014 international lacrosse update! The games are only 11 days away! Rosters are being trimmed down to a final set of 23, numbers are being assigned, players are working harder than ever to prepare, and any fundraising effort that isn’t done already is nearing its final stages!
Back in 2008, the Philadelphia Barrage were returning to defend their 2007 Major League Lacrosse crown, but were without a home. This was also the first time we saw the Inside The MLL show pop up, and it’s been with us ever since.
