I created a new stringing tutorial on our YouTube page, and this time around I’m getting a little crazy, and teaching you how to string mesh! I know, anything but traditional from me is weird… but I played with mesh for years in college, and still know how to string a great pocket.

In the 70s and early 80s, Morgan State’s lacrosse team was an NCAA Division 1 force, but the school dropped the varsity program. However, over the last couple of years, Morgan State Lacrosse has seen a resurgence, with their club program improving, and the team seeing success in the NCLL.
All three Thompsons have scored some pretty incredible goals this year, but none of them have been quite so casual AND highlight reel worthy, as this recent effort from Lyle Thompson.
ROAR Sports Drinks are based out of Long Island, and the company focuses on a newer, more extreme sport community, of which lacrosse is a part. Kids all over Long Island, New York, and the Northeast have been giving ROAR a shot, so we figured we should too! Plus they sent us 12 bottles of product to try out… how could we not?
We get great questions from our readers on traditional stringing, but we also get some really awesome, and sometimes weird, questions that stump even the finest minds at LAS. When it comes to situations like that, we reach out to the experts.
Welcome to another Lacrosse Video Explosion where we snipe the best videos from across the web and pop them into one post, for your viewing pleasure! From D1 to the MCLA, this post has it all. Sweet, sweet lacrosse action… goes down smooth!
Each week I’ve been asking if the D1 Lacrosse Polls Are Serious, and each week it seems like the answer is yes. Really, it’s immaterial, as all that matters is making the big dance, and then going on a run to glory.
Game Photos! The Ohio State – Loyola game was a true thriller, as Loyola went up with a slight lead in the third, and the OSU stormed back to win the game 18-11, scoring seven unanswered goals to switch the momentum completely.
The Evolution head, no matter what number of surname has followed it, has remained popular amongst lacrosse players everywhere. We’ve seen countless iterations on the Evo, and now we get to check out the Evolution 4, which features some of the same, and a whole lot of new.
Check out some highlights from the first four games (4-0) of the Coquitlam Adanacs Midget A1 team (14-15 years old) season. These guys are tearing it up so far, and putting on a nice little show. Enjoy!
Syracuse’s David B. Falk College has released a breathtaking movie on the history of lacrosse, and we are SO PROUD to say that we made the cut, and were included in the video! It’s a huge honor, and we were a little surprised to see ourselves playing alongside some of the other legends featured.
Miles Thompson’s recent goal against Stony Brook is insane. He takes a look at the net, turns his back, pivots, and then just wails the ball at the net without looking, sticking it inside the pipe. If this were anyone else, we’d say they got lucky, but since it’s a Thompson, we want to know if you think he practices this.
Next week we’ll get back to answering Reader Questions, but this week we’re focusing on the 20th Annual Ales Hrebesky Memorial, where we found a TON of leather and lace. It was a beautiful sight to take in!
It’s finally here, the long awaited LaxAllStars video from the 2013 Ales Hrebesky Memorial box lacrosse tournament in Radotin, a small village on the outskirts of Prague, Czech Republic. 13 countries, 20 teams, five days, and more awesomeness than any one person can handle!
The NJCAA Championships will be held on May 11th and 12th at Nassau CC in Garden City. The field is figured out and we’re entering the most important 12 days of JuCo lacrosse for the year. It’s time to decide who the best NJCAA team is in 2013!
Jeff and I both spent the past week abroad, thanks to the sport of lacrosse, and when we spoke on the phone yesterday to get caught up, it was obvious that both of us had been impacted by our travel experiences in a notable manner.
Make sure you check out the Ales Hrebesky Memorial posts for a lot more coverage from Prague. The box lacrosse was wonderful, the atmosphere was electric, and the photos came out great. If you weren’t there in person, you missed out! For more photos, check out our Facebook page where we have a whole lot more to take in.
The USILA and Nike/IL Polls for NCAA D1 Men’s Lacrosse were released yesterday. Quint Kessenich has dropped his Top 20. Did you think just because I was in Prague for box lacrosse that I wouldn’t offer up my own analysis? Come on now. I still like field lacrosse.
We’ve covered the 2013 Ales Hrebesky Memorial quite nicely this week, with up to date posts featuring First Photos, the Quarterfinals, the All-Star Game (with photos), as well as LCC Radotin’s triumph in the finals. This coming week, we’ll be back with some great highlights, and tons of photos. For now, it’s time to talk about the overall tournament, and how 2013 was certainly a year for the record books.
One of the many annual highlights of the Ales Hrebesky Memorial box lacrosse tournament, going on RIGHT NOW in the Czech Republic, is the All-Star game. Players from each of the non-Czech teams are selected to represent the tourney All-Star team, and they play the Czech national team, which is obviously comprised of players from the Czech club teams.
