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.

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 trick will help immensely with hand-eye […]
This week, the difficulty level of Stick Trick Saturday is jumping up a bit compared to previous weeks. So remember to be patient and keep at it. There is no name for this trick as of yet, so if you can think of one, go for it!
This week’s stick trick is inspired by, none other than the master himself, Matt Gibson. I saw him do this trick in the UCLA video and thought it would be perfect for this week.
The best week of the year, other than championship weekend, is upon us. Yes, you are correct, Shark Week! This week is all about giant swimming, eating, and killing machines that are sharks!
Week number two of Stick Trick Saturday is upon us. This week Colton was in Coeur D’Alane, Idaho on vacation, but that won’t stop him from fooling around with a lacrosse stick. Plus there’s a new Matt Gibson video out. How is that not exciting?
Colton Raichl with you again to show you his way of stringing up a Maverik Spider 17. Colton had never used a Spider before, and really likes the way it turned out. The shape of the head allows for a very nicely formed mesh pocket. Here is a tutorial.
Colton Raichl here with you today with the first installment of Stick Trick Saturday. The purpose of these drills are to improve your stick skills and creativity in your backyard, eventually transferring to the field. You can also impress your friends and have fun with it too.
Colton Raichl here to show you my way of stringing up a head. I have been stringing for about 4 years now. I have strung almost every head on my high school team, a few on my college team, and a couple more for anyone who comes in to the Bend Lax Shack during the summer!
