Tradmesh Stringing Tutorial

Trameshional Tradmesh Stringing Tutorial

0 - Published August 12, 2014 by in Featured, Stringing, Tutorials

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.

New High School Lacrosse Rules: Goodbye U Shooters

0 - Published August 11, 2014 by in Featured, High School

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!

Ridiculous Miles Thompson Goal

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.

How Do You Go From First To Worst?

0 - Published August 11, 2014 by in Major League Lacrosse, Pro Lacrosse

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.

Traditional Thursday: Stanwick Lacrosse Camp

0 - Published August 7, 2014 by in Traditional, Training

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.

Throwback Thursday: 1996 Vail Lacrosse Video

0 - Published August 7, 2014 by in Club

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?

Which 2017 Lacrosse Recruit Is More Electric?

0 - Published August 5, 2014 by in High School

Today I’m showing you two electric 2017 lacrosse recruit highlight reels, but I want to know which one you think is MORE electric. Is it Alex Trippi of the Bullis School? Or Westy McLaughlin of Avon Old Farms? Both players just finished their freshman seasons in high school (I know, how are they this good?), and both have recently put up ridiculous highlight tapes.

Gear Review: The Hawk by Epoch Lacrosse

0 - Published August 5, 2014 by in Gear, Gear Reviews

Today I’m checking out The Hawk by Epoch Lacrosse on LaxAllStars.com! I have been exposed to this head for months now, and I’ve seen it develop through 3D printing, talked to the original creator (Flip Naumburg), and learned a lot by being so intimately involved. This first hard experience gives me an unparalleled insight into this new product, and now I’m sharing that perspective with you.

John Grant Jr MLL Record: 280 Goals

0 - Published August 2, 2014 by in Major League Lacrosse, Pro Lacrosse

The lax world is talking about a new John Grant Jr MLL Record, and it has to do with him passing Kevin Leveille as the all-time leading goal scorer in Major League Lacrosse. Junior entered the game with 276 goals, and needed just one to tie Leveille at 277. Instead, John Grant Jr dropped four goals (and four assists!) to move to 280 total goals, and set a new MLL record.
