I know you know this, but the Thompson Trio changed lacrosse this season. Brothers Lyle and Miles, along with cousin Ty, dominated opponents and highlight reels by being one of the most electrifying offenses in lacrosse history. The two brothers from the Onondaga reservation in Upstate New York changed many people’s views about lacrosse after the electrifying year that was 2014.
The BCJALL, or British Columbia Jr. A Lacrosse League, and LaxAllStars have teamed up to bring you the hottest content from one of the most competitive box lacrosse leagues in the world. Jr. A box lacrosse in BC is a big deal, with many rising stars playing in the league. Let’s take an inside look at Week 8.
Today we have a “Shooting With Gordon Purdie” video, and the best part about this short clip is that it features BOTH Gordon Purdie Junior, AND Gordon Purdie Senior! Junior played at Lynbrook in high school, where he is a 2015 graduate. From what we can tell, he’s still uncommitted! Senior is an Australian lacrosse legend and the Coach at Adelphi!
The Adrenaline All-American Game, played Saturday night in Mission Viejo, had everything you’d expect from an all-star game — highlight-reel finishes, slick stickwork, tremendous athletic ability and plenty of determination. In the end, the balance tipped in favor of the South squad, which surged ahead late in the third period and held off a North rally to post a 20-15 victory at Capistrano Valley HS.
This week we take a break from stick tricks and are focusing more on individual moves that improve your stick skills overall as a player.
I’m back with another “how-to” video, and this time around it’s a traditional lacrosse pocket tutorial. This video focuses on the single string method of stringing or netting a traditional diamond leather lacrosse pocket. I used a matte grey Gait Recon XL Universal spec head from Gait Lacrosse, bright orange cross lace, white leathers, white sidewall, and four shooting strings. It’s about as six diamond as a six diamond gets!
Tomorrow, Saturday June 7th, we will kick off the 2014 ADRLN All-American Game down in Mission Viejo, CA. The AAA is the premier recruiting and all-star lacrosse event in the West.
The Cancer Research Institute, which is known as the Leader in Immunotherapy, raises money that goes directly to fighting cancer using a revolutionary and an increasingly successful class of treatments called immunotherapy. So what happens when Trilogy, the Leader in Lacrosse Education, meets the Leader in Immunotherapy? Lacrosse crushes cancer.
The BCJALL and LaxAllStars have teamed up to bring you the hottest content from one of the most competitive lacrosse leagues in the world. For the rest of the season, Matt Bailey of the Burnaby Lakers will be the main eyes and ears for Mark during the season since he’s got the first hand look. In Canada, the summer is box season, so let’s talk Jr. A…
With the World Championships just over a month away, it’s high time to start looking at some of the top contenders a lot deeper. While the US and Canada are still the clear cut favorites, and Australia has had a lock on the bronze (or silver) since the WLC inception in 1967, the Iroquois Lacrosse program seems to be putting forth a really competitive team for 2014, and we’re all curious to see if they can do better than a 4th place finish, which is their best finish ever at a world field lacrosse championship.
I used goalie leathers from Stick Doctor as my four leather runners. I used the original cat gut sidewall, and was even able to salvage original leather from the pocket to re-attach the cat gut to the wooden wall. I then used about 26 feet of cross lace to string the tight ten-diamond pocket.
Welcome to Throwback Thursday! In honor of the FIL World Championships kicking off on July 10th in Denver, CO we dug up a little video from the 2010 World Championships in Manchester, England, featuring the USA and Canada. Both teams read like a who’s who of lacrosse, and the goals scored were insane. There’s just no other way to score on defenses and goalies that good!
Things are starting to shake out in Major League Lacrosse! It’s a week 5 recap from the one and only Chris Rosenthall. New York, Ohio, Denver, and Rochester all picked up big wins!
The 2014 Rochester Knighthawks made history by becoming the first NLL team to ever 3-peat in the Champions Cup. We talked to Joe Walters about the organization’s monumental accomplishment.
The box lacrosse helmet and face mask/cage controversy is still running strong in Canada. What is legal, what is not, and why? Can anything be done to fix this serious problem?
