Sunday was cloudy and a little bit misty in New York City, but that didn’t stop the die hard players in ULAX’s fall ball league from going out and giving it their best… or at least the best they could manage on a Sunday morning. We got a couple of dive shot attempts, and an almost goalie goal!

Salt Shakerz Lacrosse has committed to participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer (which takes place on October 19th-20th) in New York City for 2013. We hope the turnout from the Shakerz community is bigger than last year! And more importantly, the Shakerz have set an ambitious fundraising goal of $5,000, and we need your help!
ULAX’s New York City league features a vast array of talent, and players come from all over to make for a truly eclectic group of players. This week we have highlights from two games, and video of Connor taking an epic slash to the knee. Nice!
Week 3 of ULAX’s NYC league is done and said for, and we’ll have highlights from two games later on today. For now, feast your eyes on a huge Slash of Death that yours truly took squarely on the knee this past Sunday. It’s a doozy!
NYC ULAX fall ball is back! The league features great diversity in terms of talent and experience, and it’s not uncommon to see a Wisconsin helmet or local HS player matched up against a D1 alum or current MLL player. The games are fun, and can get a little intense, but everyone keeps a certain moniker in mind during the action: “we all have to work on Monday”.
New York City has now claimed their second straight Empire Cup title, and after years of being the doormat of the Empire Games (the EC’s predecessor), the City’s region team rise is definitely something worth noting. I got to catch up with NYC’s coach, Ben Kaminow (a Syracuse club player in the 80s), to discuss the team, and how the New York City lacrosse landscape is rapidly changing, and improving.
Joseph Timmons has been involved with the Brooklyn Crescents, a youth lacrosse club in New York City, for five years, and in that time, he has seen the scene change in the five boroughs. His piece below details the humble beginnings of the Crescents, and let’s you get to know this urban lacrosse program a little better.
Rob Pannell, Max Seibald, and Joe Vitale put on a shooting demonstration earlier this Summer at a New York City Doc’s NYC/Maximum Lacrosse Camp, and we got some great video of these guys ripping rope.
Update on the winners from the Salt Shakerz Invitational in NYC last weekend: On the men’s side, KAG Lacrosse took home the title, and UnCommon Fit did a great on their jerseys, by including the logos of the players’ colleges on the hem of their uniforms. Best Dressed went to Chill-Lax Wear, who lost to KAG in the finals.
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!
If you haven’t bought a ticket yet, get on it now. This is the second, and last pro field lacrosse game in NYC this season, and if we don’t show, the MLL might not come back for years. If that happens, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
A couple of Sundays back saw a constant drizzle slowly drench New York City, but that didn’t stop the Public School Athletic League lacrosse championships, which took place at Aviator Sports Complex, in Brooklyn, from going down in a pretty amazing fashion.
If you’re looking to play in the Salt Shakerz Invitational this Summer in NYC, it’s time to move on that chance NOW! Registration for teams is almost closed, and 16 strong groups of players are all ready to go, and vie for the title.
On May 22nd, CityLax is hosting a great night of lacrosse (and fundraising!) at the Gansevoort in Manhattan. The event will run from 8:30 to 11:30 and will be teeming with current CityLax volunteers, pro lacrosse players, and the New York City lacrosse faithful.
The Eagle Academy Lacrosse Team is off to a good start in its first year as a Developmental Program within New York City’s PSAL (Public School Athletic League). The team has had lower numbers than either of its opponents (usually about half as many: 30 vs 15), but has played very competitively so far.
