0 - Published September 19, 2013 by in Stick Tricks, The Life, Training

I’m back at it with Stick Tricks in the Basement, and while I haven’t added many new tricks, I am now pulling them off with a wooden box lacrosse stick. The woodie makes these tricks much harder.

Peter Carey put up a video on YouTube featuring Chris Bocklet and Steele Stanwick talking about shooting and scoring goals, and it’s time to listen up, because these guys are two of the better shooters and scorers to ever come out of Virginia!

I was out in Syosset, Long Island, recently and took in a FoGoLax.net camp. I’ll have more from the camp in the next week, but for now I wanted to share some great video I got from the session.

I have seen Kyle Harrison give this demo (see below), or a demo very much like it, a couple of times now in my life, and I always enjoy the experience. He hits on a bunch of important points in his speech, shows the kids how he does it, and rips a couple crank shots, which always impresses the kids.
