0 - Published March 27, 2014 by in Stringing, Traditional

I strung up a standard 8 diamond traditional pocket in this Maverik Metrik and used Paracord. Then I went to play some wall ball with it. How was it different from a regular traditional pocket? Would I recommend trying Paracord in your next pocket?

Lacrosse games in cold temperatures can be tough on players, coaches, officials, and fans.

Lyle Thompson Behind The Back Dodge to BTB Goal

0 - Published March 24, 2014 by in College, NCAA

Lyle Thompson casually throws a split dodge behind his back, makes another quick move, and then feeds the crease, where he finds his brother, Miles, who finished with a casual behind the back goal. When your stick is an extension of your body, and you play a ton of backyard lacrosse, these kind of plays become routine. For the rest of us, it’s simply amazing, but for the Thompsons? It’s just another day at the office.

Hot Pot: Lacrosse Companies & NCAA Eligibility Violations

0 - Published March 19, 2014 by in College, Hot Pot, NCAA

Larger lacrosse companies almost exclusively put up photos of their gear on social media, some of which D1 teams will use, and many smaller companies have followed suit. Other companies have taken a different approach, and in my opinion, it’s bordering on an NCAA eligibility violation.

Goalies Hate LongSticks GIF

As a goalie, there is nothing worse than a crank shot from 5 yards away… the second least favorite shot for most keepers has to be the long pole bomb. You never know where it’s going, the angles are different, and half the time the poles don’t even know where the ball is going. It makes for exciting lacrosse, and can be a momentum changing play.
