This dodge is taught less and less, but it’s a beauty. Why is it taught less, and why should it be taught more? Does this dodge require a higher lacrosse IQ? How similar is it to the rocker step in terms of set up? The Z dodge is definitely a hard dodge to pull off and set up in games.
Here’s a breakdown of the MCLA National Championship Final Four games. Games start at 11:30 am PST and the last one begins at 7:45 pm tonight! All semi-final games are played today (May 15) at Chapman University.
A previous Club Directors Panel focused on how clubs are preparing their families for the accelerated recruiting process. Ryan Danehy, co-director of Go Blue and current assistant at Michigan, shared valuable insights from both sides of the process and then provided a great template for emailing college coaches.
Both of the top seeds went on the road and lost last weekend in NLL action. Edmonton went to Calgary and dropped a tough 12-11 decision to the Roughnecks. Rochester made the short trip on the Thruway to Buffalo and dropped a 12-8 game to a surging Buffalo Bandits.

The Onondaga Community College men’s lacrosse team just won their sixth straight national junior college championship. The Lazers knocked off Nassau Community College 12-7 to take the title, but the game was a lot closer than the 5-goal final margin might indicate. This was OCC’s 87th straight win, and they have now won an absurd 8 of the last 9 national titles. Talk about a dynasty!
What a weekend of lacrosse! We saw some crazy upsets, some not so crazy upsets, and a ton of amazing college lacrosse action. Let’s run down ALL the weekend’s big time scores and reports, and we’ll provide video wherever possible!
We took all of the first round teams of the 2014 NCAA Lacrosse Tournament and broke down each roster and divided the players by state and province. Since all of the rosters had to be checked by hand, we can promise that a ton of effort was put forth, but our numbers could be slightly off (nobody’s perfect)!
I was scrolling through Instagram today (Mother’s Day) and I noticed a common trend amongst the people I follow, particularly pro lacrosse players. Everyone loves to post pics of themselves alongside their mothers!
There is more high quality lacrosse on TV (and online) today, than there is on any other day of the year. That is a pretty tough augment to make in general, but I think that May 10th lives up the hype in more ways than one! Below I’ll run down the full slate of games going down today, and how you can watch as many of them as possible!
The privileges and responsibilities of the goalie are very specific and unique for lacrosse. These athletes are dedicating their life to the craft of goaltending, we must stay up on the rule and game changes to be confident that we are calling the best game that we can. Goalies count on us to get the little things right, if a player of the opposite team steps in the crease, no matter what, a flag or whistle must be blown.
For the Richmond Spiders, all expectations were exceeded. It was fitting for the Spiders, as a new program, to join the Atlantic Sun Conference. The A-Sun is new to lacrosse this year, and the winner receives an automatic qualifying bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Cam Bomberry, legendary player and the Director of Lacrosse for the Iroquois National Team, provides an update preparations for the FIL World Championships.
One of my favorite things about teaching the fundamentals of face-offs is that the improvement can happen instantly. Eventually it’s the little things that separate good face-off men from great face-off men.
