And while you’re at it, you might as well watch this silly video update we created too. We hope it provides you with an easy way to connect with other lacrosse fans all over the world.

We had Kyle Sorenson of the Vancouver Stealth on The Lacrosse Show last night and we grilled him on the new NLL rule changes, what it takes to win in the league, his stick set up, the new Under Armour gear and deal, and a ton of other interesting stuff!

For our first ever Community Content post, we have a video submitted by socolax2, aka Will Wezenter II, Southern Connecticut State University Assistant Coach. This video is special because it isn’t of Will’s team – in fact, it’s of a conference opponent!
StringKing interviewed CJ Costabille on their blog recently, and they touched on a number of different and interesting topics. They also asked CJ for his thoughts on recruiting, and choosing a college, and sent his doozy of an answer over to us, because they knew we’d want to share it!
In partnership with Cascade and Maverik Lacrosse, LaxAllStars.com is excited to announce a lacrosse helmet design contest centered around something that is close to our hearts.

I listen to the most incorrect explanations of what the current lacrosse rules are at every level I officiate and every region I do games in. In this post I cover what I consider the Top 10 Rule Myths in NFHS and NCAA Boys Lacrosse and I bust those myths using the 2013 rulebooks for each respective level.

The 2014 lacrosse season is really just around the corner, and to get you even more excited, we got some more highlights from Mike Perrino.

Gordon Purdie is the Head Coach at NCAA D2 Adelphi, and a YouTube user with the same name uploaded a great video featuring Adelphi Lacrosse from the 1980s. We can only assume it’s the same guy! Either way, the video is awesome, and well worth a watch or two.
Some college lacrosse programs have a YouTube page just for the team, and then there is Notre Dame. NDLaxTV takes college lacrosse video to the next level on a pretty regular basis, and The Irish offer up training tools, drills, video from games, short documentaries, and more.
