We’re back with a new Stick Trick Saturday. The first snowfall of the season hit Moscow, Idaho and a problem started arising that is prevalent in cold conditions, cold hands. Cold hands can cause many problems for stick handlers. These drills will work on your hand speed as well as keeping them warm, loose, and ready for the conditions. Welcome, “The Hand Warmer”.
Saturday is here and that means it’s time to work on those stick skills. In the past we have had some kind of either stick flips or sidewall stalls. This week is a little of both. Take a peek at the trick this week called the spin cycle! Remember to master the basics of the trick before trying all of it.
Playing lacrosse in north Idaho, the weather comes in to play a lot during both the fall and spring season. I would always blame a bad pass on the weather or my bagged out mesh. The best solution I have found to extreme weather conditions is, wax mesh. If you want the best performance out of your wax mesh, East Coast Dyes is what you are looking for.
LAS Nation, You may notice something different about my stick this week. I am using a piece of POWLAX mesh, customized for the University of Idaho. The guys over at POWLAX sent me this customized piece of mesh after I saw their stuff on Instagram. They make some unreal dye patterns on wax mesh, which seems to be skyrocketing in popularity these days. I love their mesh, keep an eye out for a full review coming soon! I saw this…

Colton Raichl of Lacrosse All Stars shows you how to get all the girls in another installment of Stick Trick Saturday (11/01/2013). The series is designed to be an inspirational guide for lacrosse players to get used to the properties of their own stick. Tricks are not just to show off but to develop a better relationship between the player and his crosse. This one is called the “The Girlfriend Getter.”
Big thanks need to go out to Blackfeet Lacrosse for hooking me up with the mini pita for this week’s stick trick video. The Crossover will help you out with your hand eye coordination, and as always help you develop soft hands.
Nike has been slowly getting their foot in the door for a few years now. Their explosion in popularity in the Lakota head is what helped Nike really get some exposure. Now with the Ceo U, they are looking to build on that growth. Let’s get down to brass tax with an LAS Gear Review!
Welcome back everyone to Stick Trick Saturday, week 13 if I am correct. Man, time flies when you are having fun. This week is a more of a stick flip than a trick. It is the Back Breaker! Check out the video to see how its done and try and add some of your own style to it also! Make sure to protect your dome, things can get crazy!
This week, myself and the rest of the Vandal lacrosse team are headed to Missoula Montana for the first fall ball tournament of the year. Naturally, in honor of getting back on the field, this week’s trick is called the Missoula Movement. As Stick Trick Saturday moves on, the tricks are going to get a little more complicated. As always, break down the trick into different parts, then put it all together. Also keep being patient and have fun!
LAS Nation, Someone out there has been putting in the work, have you? Our boy Max Murret hit up the tip line , showing off what he has had going on in the backyard. All Star weekend I showed you the “home run”, and Max knocked it out of the park, or did he? It takes lacrosse to make baseball look cool. Thanks Max for putting your soft hands to work, I want the rest of you to get practicing…
You might as well call this week the soft hands challenge. The goal of this week is to push your boundaries. Keep throwing the ball as high as you can testing your hands, the higher the better.
The ninth installment of Stick Trick Saturday is a tribute to our buddy, Major League Lacrosse player Matt Gibson.
When Bryan Jenkins first started creating Musket lacrosse shafts, he had one goal in mind. That goal was to bring reasonably priced, high performance lacrosse shafts to his players, who play in non traditional areas. Bryan coaches lacrosse in Montana and he created Musket shafts with HIS players in mind. There are two composite Musket shafts, one black, and one white.
If you are a gear-head like myself, you will have noticed the latest top string trend sweeping the nation: The Chenango Top String! As far as we can tell, this top string was first created by Syracuse player Matt Pratt in his attempt to deal with and alter the four inch shooting string rule.
Welcome back to Stick Trick Saturday! In honor of my University of Idaho football program’s home opener this weekend, I came up with this little combination of tricks called The Vandal Pick-Up. There are three steps to this stick trick. To have the best chance of successfully executing it, I would recommend practicing every step individually. Once you master each step, put them all together and you’ll be gold. The Vandal Pick-Up is going to help your hand speed and…
Saturday means stick tricks… and this week it’s the Picture Taker. Soft hands, knowing where the ball is, and control… this trick requires it all. Give it a shot and take your game to the next level.
This week’s trick is going to help you immensely with your hand-eye coordination. Because you are catching the ball with your hand on the bottom of the stick, you are working on your off hand without even knowing it.
In honor of Major League Lacrosse Championship Weekend, this Stick Trick Saturday features an stick trick I learned watching the MLL. Kevin Buchanan pulled this one out at the Freestyle competition during All-Star Weekend in Charlotte. Be careful with this one, it could get destructive! Work on those soft hands. This trick will help immensely with hand-eye coordination and hand speed. Keep it up and I will see you next week! P.S. – Before you step outside to give this Stick Trick…
