After the summer success of the 2016 NJ Riot team the organization decided to expand to include a 2017 team to compete in the 2014 summer season. Tryouts were held late in the summer of 2013 with 100+ players in attendance. After the second call back a group of 24 players were selected and the summer began.
High School Lacrosse news and commentary. From East Coast to West Coast, we’ve got high school lax coverage from every region!
U and V shooters, which extend below 4′ from the scoop, will once again be allowed in high school lacrosse, but only for one more season. Originally, the NFHS had adopted the college version of the shooting string rule for 2015, but yesterday announced that this rule would be delayed for one year, until 2016.
I am reminded heavily of the NCAA rule changes a little while back. The nervousness of the community was the same and the rule changes are potentially identical.I will get into the potentials in a moment. This should not be seen as a limitation, but rather another opportunity to let your creativity run wild. First, CALM DOWN, second, read this article!
After 6 years of providing the best training to players across the country at our Overnight Summer Camps, we realized we needed something to challenge the top players.
Gawker.com’s Dayna Evans takes a deep look at the evolving culture of lacrosse in New York City.
The National Federation for High Schools Sports (NFHS) has released new high school lacrosse rule changes for 2015, and many of them echo the moves in the college game. While many of the rules will impact the game in one way or another, one rule will definitely impact a number of players, and that is the 4″ rule for shooting strings. Say goodbye to U and V shooters!
Today I’m showing you two electric 2017 lacrosse recruit highlight reels, but I want to know which one you think is MORE electric. Is it Alex Trippi of the Bullis School? Or Westy McLaughlin of Avon Old Farms? Both players just finished their freshman seasons in high school (I know, how are they this good?), and both have recently put up ridiculous highlight tapes.
We are more than halfway through the summer ball circuit. Let’s run down some All-stars, tournament results, and a coaching announcement.
Sadly, the Rhino Summer Academies have come to an end. On the bright side, it has been one incredible summer and we wrap up in beautiful Bend, Oregon!
Unlike last year, no torrential rain fell in Downingtown, Pennsylvania this weekend allowing NXT’s Summer Invitational to really shine.
After the Boise, Idaho Rhino Academy finished up, the road crew and I hit the road towards our next stop in Bozeman, Montana. Before this camp, I didn’t really have a sense of the skill level of the lacrosse players in Montana, so I admit that I assumed it was pretty low. After the first day of camp, I was pleasantly surprised that I was way off.
The good and bad from the lacrosse world organized in easy to read passages. Let’s start with my mid-summer recruiting trail update!
We talk about why the subject line and first in any email is important, what to include (and not include) in a well written email, and what should be attached to every email that is sent to a coach.
Despite the absurd heat, the campers at the Boise Academy were extremely hard workers. I know for a fact that if I had to play in that heat I wouldn’t be a happy camper, but everyone out there was eager to learn and improve their games.
When I was 17 years old, if you told me I would be frequenting Mercer Country Community College in Princeton Junction, New Jersey I would call you silly names. And yet, here we are in 2014 and I’m recovering from another trip to MCC where Tri-State holds their annual summer event.
