Connor Wilson argues that college lacrosse is still better than pro lacrosse. He lays out ONE reason and FOUR solutions.
The Native Vission camp in New Mexico gives Native American kids an increased exposure to sports and positive living. Easton and some Native lax legends ran the lacrosse portion of the camp! Giving Back and Growing The Game!
Brown University has dropped a 2012 season preview on us, and since we’ll have a member of the Brown State team blogging with us this spring, we’re giving you a quick taste!
I had the chance to go to Hawai’i, but instead I had to stay in NYC, do normal people things, and see the Northeast’s first snow of the year. I should have gone to Hawai’i to play lacrosse.
The second year of the European Lacrosse League (Europe’s top box lacrosse league) is in the books! Bats lacrosse took home the hardware, which was a bit of a surprise! Exciting until the end!
How important is pick-up lacrosse? We’re talking about unorganized, backyard brawl style lacrosse training. Being a complete player starts at home.
The issues around lacrosse combines are only getting deeper. Baseball saw a statistical revolution, so could lacrosse benefit from the same thing? Do we want athletes? Or athletic lacrosse players?

Photo courtesy Syracuse.com There are only 100 days between today and the first game of the NCAA Division 1 Lacrosse Season*. We’re beyond excited. We’re in store for another great year of college lacrosse across the divisions, and in both the NCAA and the MCLA. There are interesting, lacrosse-heavy story lines galore like Virginia’s quest to repeat, Rob Pannell (he’s a story unto himself), Penn State rising, lots of change, Denver reloading, and a new big-time program in Michigan. And…

Concussions in sports, especially football, hockey and lacrosse, are a growing concern. Education and treatment are key, but that is only half of the equation. We can’t forget about prevention!
This week’s Hot Pot features a deeper look into the Canadian Lacrosse League, also known as CLax. The league now has 6 teams, and all of them are in Ontario, which is a little weird. Still, good things are on the horizon for CLax we think!
Michigan has made the jump to D1 lacrosse from the MCLA and has been losing in scrimmages to lower level D1 teams this fall. Are they performing better, worse or just as expected? And what does it mean for the future of UMich lax?
The Dominican University of California Penguins are entering their third full year as an NCAA D2 team, and expectations should be high. Connor takes a look at this rising West Coast program.
The LA Times recently had an article about Choctaw Stickball, which is like the first cousin of modern lacrosse. It’s played in the Southeast once a year and is the most intense and violent version of the game we’ve ever seen!
