We took part in the annual CityLax Gala last night at the Yale Club of New York City, and all the big names and faces of New York City lacrosse made their way to the event. Check out the great video below from CityLax that showcases the Gala event and runs down a small portion of who was there.
High School Lacrosse news and commentary. From East Coast to West Coast, we’ve got high school lax coverage from every region!
There are a couple of polls out there that attempt to rank the Top 20 or Top 25 US high school lacrosse teams, and when you look at it as an extension of the NCAA Top 20 polls, it seems to make some initial sense, but when you look a little deeper, the rationale begins to fall apart pretty quickly. Why do we rank high school lacrosse teams nationally in ONE ranking system? Heck, why do we even rank them at all?
Brodie Merrill highlights the details of early recruiting in NCAA lacrosse.
Emery Lehman, a 17-year-old senior and midfielder at Oak Park-River Forest (Ill.) High in suburban Chicago, will represent the United States in both the 5,000- and 10,000-meter speed skating events starting this weekend in Sochi, Russia.
A few weekends back, I spent the entire day outside of Los Angeles for the final LXM PRO event of the 2013-2014 season. With the event also came the final Adrenaline tournament of the year. But what is it that keeps bringing teams back to ADRLN tournaments? Here’s what players and coaches have to say.
As we approach the Spring season, it’s easy to let our excitement take over and forget about what got us to where we are. I’ve got FIVE basic rules that every player can follow, and I am willing to bet that if you follow these guidelines you’re going to experience a fantastic 2014! We’re hoping that everyone has a great Spring, and we hope this list assists you in getting it done.
One of the ultimate ironies of sports occurs when coaches discipline “lazy” players by making them run.
There is a constant search amongst parents and players to be on the “best team” that wins the most games and tournaments. It is no longer enough for our children to play on a local youth or high school team and enjoy the experience of playing sports.
The Box Lacrosse Association of America (BLA) has formed to give American players a new option for playing “real” box lacrosse.
Coaches, players, and fans often compare sports referees to police officers when explaining the authority that a referee has over a game. While it is an easy comparison to make, everyone who makes it seriously understates the amount of authority that a referee actually possesses.
Beginning with the 2014 lacrosse season, Valley will no longer be the only boys’ high school lacrosse program in Central Iowa. Skyhawks Sports in conjunction with the Ankeny school district will sponsor a second club team in the metro’s northern suburb. Like Valley, the team will compete in the Nebraska High School Lacrosse League.
While practice may be relegated to the confides of an indoor gym up North, teams all across the state of Florida gathered at North Broward Preparatory School in Coconut Creek this past weekend to compete in the 5th Annual Jingle Brawl 7 v 7 Lacrosse Tournament.
Tumbas has been all over the place this year and has checked out a ton of events, many of them with a recruiting twist. Today he gives his two cents on early recruiting for college.
Blue Chip Nationals began their second weekend with a practice at Loyola’s Ridley Athletic Complex. The Nationals are the brainchild of Ted Spencer, current Blue Chip 225 director and former head coach at Fairfield. Peter Tumbas shines some light on this elite national travel program.
A few weekends ago, the Adrenaline High Rollers: SoCal recruiting event took place at Orange Coast College. Our friends at MaxLaxOC attended the event and put together two awesome videos, including a video of the High School All-Star game.
Peter Tumbas is back on LAS and he’s talking about recruiting events, players who impressed, and a whole lot more down the line. In this post, Tumbas took in the NXT Philly Freshmen and Senior Showcases, and now he names some players who impressed!
The inaugural MVP Fall Exposure was held at Manhiem Township in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It’s an incredibly smart choice for a venue simply because the school had four turf fields. FOUR TURF FIELDS! Despite grey skies all day, the rains held off and teams from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, New York, and Virginia competed in three games each. These are not necessarily the best players at the event, but rather the players that captured our attention in one way or another during the games that we saw.
Registration is now open for the second annual Saratoga Lacrosse Shootout. The 2014 Shootout features youth boys’ competition in grades 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, and High School A and B divisions. We thought it would be a good idea to ask Rhino himself some questions about the 2014 version of the event, and of course, Ryan Powell obliged!
