High School Lacrosse news and commentary. From East Coast to West Coast, we’ve got high school lax coverage from every region!
This week, Mark and Gordon are breaking down how to handle contact made to the head or neck as emphasized in the 2014 NFHS Rulebook.
A decade ago, there were only a handful of truly elite recruiting camps and tournaments. If you wanted to be seen by top level coaches, and play against the best, this small number of events were where you wanted to be. Fast forward to today, and it seems like there are more recruiting events than there are recruits!
Today Mark and Gordon will be diving in to the theory and execution of quick and slow restarts, new to the 2014 NFHS Rulebook.
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.
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.
