Bill Schick took in the action last weekend at the Salt Shakerz Invitiational tournament in New York City, and put together a fantastic short highlight video from this growing and improving lacrosse event!
Major Series Lacrosse is off and running, so check out the game photos from the Six Nations Chiefs’ 16-11 road win over the Peterborough Lakers. Cody Jamieson and Jordan MacIntosh went OFF in this game!
If you’ve ever wanted to learn the basics of taking a face off in lacrosse, this video should be a huge help. Dom gives you a bunch of things to try as a beginner. Now, to become great, it’s going to take some practice!
Doug Trettin is back with another killer traditional pocket, and this it’s a one of a kind prototype, called the EverPocket Zeroh (as in zero buttons!). If you’ve seen Doug’s older EverPockets, you know he is a button King.
Piotr Stalmach from Mesh Wizard in Poland has some awesome tips for stringing sticks, and this week, he’s showing us how to do the X-Up Top String for traditional sticks!
I have worked a lot of different lacrosse camps in my day. Big time instructional camps, team camps, and recruiting camps, I’ve seen them all. But nothing gets me more excited than a small lacrosse camp, with a high counselor to camper ratio.
We’ve had a ton of great video from the Maximum Lacrosse Camps in NYC, but we’re not done yet! CW asked Rob Pannell to explain his thought process when dodging from X, and Mr. Pannell delivers, as usual!
When James Pannell wasn’t coaching kids, or playing a vicious game of P-I-G against his brother, Rob, he was getting peppered by questions from yours truly. This time around I asked James about his custom UVA dye, his pocket, and how he and his classmates adjusted to the new college rules, including the 2010 heads, and 2013 stringing rules.
We’re back with a little more on Jeremy Thompson, as he’s been rocking a new traditional stick, and it’s got a Replaceable Top String!
College coaches hit the recruiting trail hard over the Summer, especially in June and July. They line the side of fields in their fold out chairs across the country, and scout talent, and look for future players. When the action gets close, they get a great view, but also run the risk of getting trucked.
Joe Vitale was a two-time first team All-American in his last two years at Adelphi, and played in two games for the Charlotte Hounds last year. Right now, Vitale is on the New York Lizards’ practice squad, and he can straight up BRING THE HEAT when shooting. He hit 111 at camp this week.
Both Rob and James Pannell have been working Max Seibald’s Maximum Lacrosse Camps in NYC this week, and while the two definitely get along very nicely, the spirit of healthy competition is alive and well in this family!
I was a big fan of Jay Jalbert in his playing days at UVA, and I’ve liked the short videos he has produced in the next leg of his career. His new LXM video for Maverik Films is as legit as any before, and special for a couple of reasons…
Schommy is one of the most knowledgeable, passionate, and competitive people I’ve ever met. He’s also a great friend, proud Australian, and one heck of a face off instructor. CW has known Schommy since 2001, and it’s about time you get to know him too.
Yesterday we brought you Part One of Chasing The Dream, by Malcolm Chase. Today we bring you Part Two of Malcolm’s epic journey, as he strives to make a game roster for the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse.
This week’s Traditional Thursday post is pretty epic. We have a video interview with Jeremy Thomspson after a recent Nationals game, photos of Jeremy’s stick in action (it’s a traditional variation that is NEW to us!), AND some expert tips from Mr. Thompson himself!

Connor Wilson quickly caught up with Rob Pannell, and had to ask him what it was like to see so many kids rocking his #3 Lizards jersey or T-shirt… Rob’s answer is pretty cool!
