While Twitter is usually a place for sharing news and links, it can also facilitate great conversations, 140 characters at a time. Such a conversation occurred surrounding one of Connor’s recent Hot Pot articles, which discussed the “Specialization Problem” and proposed a rule to fix it. Faceoff Academy cofounder Jerry Ragonese was part of the conversation, and had this particularly standout tweet.
Denver City Lax is a not-for-profit youth lacrosse initiative based out of Denver, Colorado. I don’t want to spend too much time telling you what Denver City Lax is all about, because their website does a fantastic job of highlighting the goals and successes of such a wonderful organization. I do want to spend time highlighting one of the founders of the group, Ben Allison, who, with his father, Rod, began the development plans for the mission to grow the game amongst intercity youth in Colorado’s largest city, back when Ben was in high school.
Welcome to the New York City Report, brought to you by Apple Lacrosse, NYC’s first lacrosse store! This week Billy Nguyen dives deep into the world of Public School lacrosse and introduces us to some of the teams in the PSAL for 2014.
Video of great college games should never go unnoticed. The CLVE pulls it all together in one place. Now you get to watch the highlights and important stuff without sifting through Buick Lacrosse ads. That’s no fun for anyone. Plenty of great D1 and D3 college lacrosse video for everyone!
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.
Providing a weekly rundown of the most interesting things that recently happened in the whole wide world of lacrosse, Crosse Clicks is to the lacrosse enthusiast as SparkNotes is to the above-average student!
France is well-known worldwide for several reasons: the Eiffel Tower, its incredible variety of cheeses, wines, pastries or even bread. Oh, and I almost forgot mentioning unshaved women and an unfaithful President. But one thing that would certainly not come to people’s mind when thinking about the country of romance is Lacrosse.
The tide is finally turning, and more and more D1 teams are using some form of zone defense. This begs the question: Can your team beat a zone defense? It’s a question you’ll have to answer sooner or later.
Pat Johnston picked up his fourth win of the season in goal for the RIT Tigers, making eight saves in net. Pat also got on the scoreboard and notched his first goal of the year about half way through the first half against WNEU. His goal gave RIT a 4-2 lead, and RIT would go on to win the game 18-6.
A weekly series that will track the progress of Pittsburgh athletes at the next level… playing college lacrosse! As Pittsburgh has improved over time, the area has produced more and more high level talent. We are now at the point where tracking Pittsburgh players in college should be a thing. And now it is.
Payu is reflecting on the weekend in Singapore and lacrosse in the last 5 years.
Good morning, ladies and gentlemen!
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.
College Lacrosse season is so far upon us it’s not even funny. Plenty of good games on TV each weekend, and even more action online. If you missed something, this is how you get caught up visually!
The following post is a collection of the best quotes, tips, and drills from the December IMLCA Convention. If you attended these sessions, hopefully these notes remind you of something you forgot. If you did not attend the IMLCA convention, hopefully these notes convince you of its importance, and give you something to new to think about for practice.
While some teams put their players in a couple different helmet models (Duke uses Brine, old Warrior, and new Warrior helmets) that all look the same, the Loyola Hounds take a different approach. Every wears the exact same helmet, but when it comes to gloves… forget about it. Wear whatever you want!
The FIL 2014 World Lacrosse Championships are only a Spring season away, and we’re all extremely excited. National teams around the world are preparing to make the trip to Colorado for two weeks (or more in some cases) in July, and that means a lot of training camps, scrimmages, and quite a bit of fundraising!
To start things off with some energy, I am introducing the young, up and coming Jackson Breit, a business student out of Tulane who can sing/rap/play guitar/make beats/probably do a lot of other things too.
