Club Directors Panel: High School Teams Vs Club

0 - Published April 11, 2014 by in College, High School, Training

Our fourth Club Directors Panel presented a bit of a challenge for our participants, because we asked about attitudes of those associated with off-season lacrosse. By no means are we being accusatory of our panel, but as the scene continues to evolve, we are simply wondering what they’re experiencing from their side of the table.

Making Elite Recruiting Events Truly Elite

0 - Published March 11, 2014 by in High School, Interviews

A decade ago, there were only a handful of truly elite recruiting camps and tournaments. If you wanted to be seen by top level coaches, and play against the best, this small number of events were where you wanted to be. Fast forward to today, and it seems like there are more recruiting events than […]

0 - Published September 11, 2013 by in High School, Hot Pot

Someone recently posed this question to me: Are there national lacrosse brands? This question was asked in reference to club programs, specifically high school club teams, rather than to “brands” in the sense of gear manufacturers. So, are there “national lacrosse brands,” and if so, are they better than local club teams?

Box Lacrosse Player With HUGE Field Upside

0 - Published August 28, 2013 by in High School

Layne Smith is a 2015 attackman who also plays a whole lot of box lacrosse. He’s not the tallest kid in the field, but he’s thick (5’11” and 195) and uses his strength and balance to his advantage very well. He also has a super stick, and finishes inside with a flurry of fakes.
