Jeff and I both spent the past week abroad, thanks to the sport of lacrosse, and when we spoke on the phone yesterday to get caught up, it was obvious that both of us had been impacted by our travel experiences in a notable manner.
Wake up on Wednesdays to the Hot Pot of Lax. An interesting take on a current lacrosse topic coupled with news and links to top stories and the lax video of the week.
I don’t know what it is about the year 2013 for me, but something is different. Maybe it’s just that I’m older now, or that I’m coaching and writing more than ever. Perhaps I’ve just been exposed to “enough” lacrosse at this point in my life. The point is, I can’t help but look at the game a little differently now, and this becomes more true day by day.
In lacrosse, I have found it much easier to experience the positive stuff if you are part of a close knit team, and for first year programs, or teams filled with first year players, the “team approach” is especially important.
The hard part will be getting in 2 or 3 more workouts before NEXT week’s training session. The hard part will be doing it on my own. The hard part is the SECOND step.
Nothing matters in lacrosse, and in life, as much as attitude. This is true for coaches, players, fans, and yes, even referees. The Hot Pot tackles good attitude, and why it is THE key to success.
We’ve seen some pretty over the top lacrosse commercials recently. Some try to tell a story, others hit you with flashy imagery and tons of product shots. Nike Lacrosse, on the other hand, seems to be going a little more classic with their path…
What is it about certain lacrosse tournaments that make them so special? The Hot Pot finds it comes down to one thing…
If you’re in or around New Orleans this weekend, come on over to City Park and check out the Mardi Gras Lacrosse Tournament.
At 32 years old, CW is going to play in a new place, against a new team, in a version of the game he doesn’t know as well he’d like to think. And it’s giving him a feeling he hasn’t felt in a while.
It’s a traditional call to arms! If you see a college player using traditional stringing, we want to know so we can put them on the 2013 College Lacrosse All-Traditional Team!
We taped The Lacrosse Show LIVE last night on TLN and we talked a lot of lacrosse, got some great comments from viewers, and even had our own Super Bowl Power Problem. It was an epic first episode!
This week’s Hot Pot reissues the formidable AUGUST CHALLENGE! Can you meet the simple requirements and Grow the Game?
As the Spring season gets closer and closer, CW takes a look at the benefits, and the drawbacks, of traditional lacrosse pockets vs. mesh.
