When Bryan Jenkins first started creating Musket lacrosse shafts, he had one goal in mind. That goal was to bring reasonably priced, high performance lacrosse shafts to his players, who play in non traditional areas. Bryan coaches lacrosse in Montana and he created Musket shafts with HIS players in mind. There are two composite Musket shafts, one black, and one white.
This year seems to be a progressive one for box lacrosse. I’ve seen more programs and tournaments pop up these past few months than ever before, and even the NLL is getting on board by hosting its first Junior Tournament in Toronto.
Wyatt Melzer played lacrosse at Virginia, and after graduating he wasn’t exactly sure what he was going to do with his life. Through an alumni connection he got hooked up with Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership, and it all took off from there.

Are there skills that are overlooked when teaching young players? This poster thinks so, and I tend to agree!
With Rob Pannell getting drafted in NLL, signing with StringKing, making the cut for Team USA (so far), and signing with Brine, he has been a busy man! The guys over at StringKing sat down with Rob to talk about it all, and we’re loving this in-depth conversation.

We’re Talking Pockets today with LAS’ own Billy Nguyen, ChillLax Customs’ Nick Coyne, and Albany attackman Ty Thompson. We’ll see what each of these guys is looking for out of their pockets, and how they string their sticks. Hopefully, you’ll find something useful, which will help you string a better lacrosse stick!
I’m back at it with Stick Tricks in the Basement, and while I haven’t added many new tricks, I am now pulling them off with a wooden box lacrosse stick. The woodie makes these tricks much harder.

With tournament #1 (Berlin) in the books, the European Lacrosse League is off and running. Tournament #2 takes place this weekend in Radotin, Czech Republic, and we’ve got Jamie Plunkett and Simon Krause in a LIVE Hangout to talk about the ELL, and this weekend’s event.
While attackmen, middies, goalies, and even defensemen, will get lots of recognition for their contributions to their teams there is a group of players grinding it out in positions that aren’t nearly as glorious, but no team could succeed without them.
