Are there different issues facing the international lacrosse community? If […]
Today we’re talking about how to select the US Box Lacrosse Team for the 2015 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships (2015 WILC)! Some have speculated that the team is already decided, but with a year to go before the 2015 games, I find it doubtful. The time to select a team though, is now, so what’s […]
This fall we have all read a number of article talking about youth lacrosse problems, and problems that face almost all youth sports.
