As we follow the New Jersey Riot 2016 team, and update you on their first hand experiences at camps, tournaments, and other events in the club lacrosse scene, we will also introduce you to some of their players via interviews. We want to know how potential college players think nowadays, and there is no better way to get informed than by talking to the players of today!

The UCSB club puts on the SB60 Elite, where 60 high level players come together for college level coaching and drilling, led by Michael Allen. While the concept of a small side elite camp is not unique, I do think the way they filmed the action is special. They used a flying drone to film the camp!
Is hitting a baseball REALLY that hard? Some MLB guys struggle with basic tricks that a 15 year old lacrosse player could pull off. What’s up with that?!?!
Kevin Leveille currently has 261 goals in his Major League Lacrosse career. The all-time leading MLL goal scorer is Tim Goettelmann, who currently has 270 goals. That’s a difference of 9 for all you English majors out there. Check out 19 Chasing 270, a short video by the MLL, for more on Leveille’s quest.
Krieg Shaw and Kevin Rowen were both playing in the men’s division at the Lake Tahoe Lacrosse Tournament two weekends ago, and Kevin captured some pretty solid iPhone video from the action.
The Hamilton Nationals improved to 9-3 on the season, and clinched a spot at Championship Weekend (in Philly on Aug 24-25th), with a 17-12 win over the visiting Boston Cannons this past weekend. Hamilton roared out to a huge first quarter lead, and Boston never caught up, dropping to 5-7 on the year, and in desperate need of a strong run to end the year, if the Cannons want to make the playoffs.
On May 11th, Salisbury took on Penn State for the 2013 NCLL title in Maryland. Penn State won the NCLL D1 title with an 11-7 win over Salisbury, and an 11-2 record overall. Penn State topped Virgina 13-12 in OT in the Elite 8, and then beat Maryland 12-7 in the semifinals. Salisbury finished at 13-5, and beat Rutgers and Cornell to make the final.
The Bayhawks hit the road this week, hot off Casey Powell’s MLL return and a huge overtime win over Boston, to face the undefeated Denver Outlaws in Mile High Stadium. The game would open with a quick goal from Denver’s Jeremy Sieverts (former Bayhawk) only to be answered equally as quickly by Chesapeake’s Drew Westervelt (former Outlaw).
Seeing as it’s Friday, everyone should be feeling good. Hopefully this video compilation of the Thompson Family’s ridiculous stick skills don’t make you feel too bad about yourself. If it does, get out there and practice. These guys are simply ridiculous.
US Lacrosse has announced the 98 man list of players that will try out for the 2014 US Men’s Team on Labor Day Weekend at Goucher College in Baltimore. Below you will find the list, which certainly contains many of the biggest names in the game, but we’re curious to know if YOU think anyone obvious was left off?
My name is Steve Dircks and I would like to give you some insight into how I became a Major League Lacrosse player.
News is quickly spreading that the 2018 International Lacrosse Championship, hosted by the FIL, will return to Manchester, England. 2018 will mark the FOURTH time England has hosted to FIL games (1978, 1994, 2010 and now 2018), and this will give England more FIL games hosted than any other country.
Tommy Gilligan is helping out at a yard sale today in New York, and he came across a true gem… an old plastic Brine goalie stick from Geneseo State!
The Oakville Rock took on the Brooklin Redmen on July 24, 2013 in Senior A Major Series Lacrosse action, and the game erupted into a pretty serious brawl, where both teams left their benches after one of the Oakville players (Brendon Niesink) went over to the Brooklin bench and started throwing punches.

Maybe you’re new to lacrosse, or know someone else who is, like a friend, relative, or even one of your parents. If you want to help them along in their journey of learning the game, I highly recommend sharing this post with them!
Below we’ve got video from both 2013 Vail Shootout semifinal games as well as the finals. This is one of the best Summer tourneys each year, has been running for decades, and turns a ski town into a lacrosse town for two weeks every year.
With performance enhancing drugs running rampant in so many sports that we KNOW about, we have to ask ourselves, are PEDs here to stay? Performance enhancing drugs are ever evolving, changing, and improving.
Earlier today, we showed you a ton of really solid summer lacrosse highlights from recruiting events, camps, and tournaments. Here’s another Summer game, featuring 3D New England and Sweet Lax 2017 players, and it was a highly enjoyable game to take in, especially for Elite Summer Club ball.
