This week’s Reader Poll is all about growth – more specifically high school growth! Obviously we are all about the growth of the game and as several of our staffers are heavily involved at the high school level, we knew this would make the perfect poll.
In this week’s episode of WLA Weekly, we interview Curtis Dickson of the Maple Ride Burrards. We also look at last week’s games, the standings, and a look into what will be happening next week in the WLA!
Joseph Timmons has been involved with the Brooklyn Crescents, a youth lacrosse club in New York City, for five years, and in that time, he has seen the scene change in the five boroughs.

The last time the Chesapeake Bayhawks faced off against the Boston Cannons, the Cannons were 0-3, with the worst season start in franchise history. That game ended in with an overtime victory for the Cannons at Harvard stadium, and would lead to a monumental turn around seeing Boston winning 4 of the next 6 games, putting them back in playoff contention.

In today’s MLL, the culture of consistency has become more vital to an organization’s success than ever before. It’s no longer about assembling the best group of all-star caliber players and throwing them out on the field, it’s about finding personnel that fit a system and are both willing, and able, to stay local, and together, as much as possible.
In this weeks episode we interview George Daniel, the commissioner of the NLL, and Head Coach Chris Hall about the Vancouver Stealth’s return to British Columbia. We also look at last week’s games, the standings, and look into what will be happening next week in the WLA!
William Lawson was the coach at Lafayette College for 31 years, and his tragic passing has been noted across the lacrosse media landscape. In order to remember Bill Lawson, and let our younger readers know what a big difference this one man made, I asked one of his former players, John Moser, to write a remembrance of Coach Lawson.
