How important is fall ball, really? Could a program go without it completely and still see success? Do the best teams at the end of the year do similar things during the fall? Is there a “right way” to do fall ball lacrosse? What are some common pitfalls of an overly structured or relaxed fall […]
However a team is dressing, people will talk about it. Who won the fall ball fashion battle this year? There were many contenders, but only one winner… so who took home the best looking awards cake?
Team 22 over at Under Armour sent over a pair of their new Command Gloves (in a custom Lake Placid theme no less!) for me to check out, and I have to say I’m impressed. This is a top level glove, and UA is using some very up to date technology on this mitten.
That Old Lacrosse Head is back for another Friday showing and this time I’m fixing up a traditional STX Excalibur for CityLax!
Today we’re showing you how to string traditional lacrosse pockets, but we’re not just teaching you how to string ONE pocket… we’re teaching you how to string ALL the pockets!
Kyle Harrison is in New York City right now doing clinics for a couple of Boys Clubs throughout the City. I grabbed K18 for a little one on one competition in the form of a new episode of Connor Versus, and Kyle didn’t even flinch.
Yesterday I wrote a post about College Lacrosse and Rape. I noted how the two things are not one and the same, but I also stated that we, as a community, can and should do something about this issue. When you consider how the mainstream media loves to connect lacrosse to rape, the latter belief […]

Over the past year it has been hard not to hear the buzz that Joule Lacrosse is making in the industry. From shattering (literally) the competition to producing a product with a grip and durability separated from the rest, the guys at Joule are here to take over the men’s, women’s and box shaft game.
We’ve got Fall Ball Videos galore on this week’s Lacrosse Video Explosion! Whether it’s D1 or D3, men or women, 30 seconds or 7 minutes, we want to see fall ball videos, and we want to see as many of them as we can!
Welcome to Episode 2 of That Old Lacrosse Head! Today I’m fixing up a nicely dyed STX X2 head. The John Jay dye job is classic, and it needed to be cleaned up a little bit. The pocket? Well, the pocket was shallow, short disaster, and it needed a complete overhaul!
2014 Bowhunter Cup Cancelled. I know this is not the news anyone wanted to hear. Today, the Nationals have announced that the 2014 Bowhunter Cup has been canceled. They also note that they “look forward to posting a rescheduled date”.
Over on the Iroquios Nationals site, IroquoisNationals.org, it is being reported that Team USA has withdrawn from the Bowhunter Cup. This is the news we didn’t want to hear.
Recruit the coach’s son. Which coaches; sons? The good ones. Yeah, but which one are the good ones? All of them! The children of good lacrosse coaches seem to see success at the college level at a somewhat uncanny level. Yesterday I showcased Jack Raba, the son of Wesleyan head coach John Raba, and I […]
