I caught up with Greg Gurenlian the other week to cover Team USA tryouts and his Face Off Academy camps and clinics. I also asked Greg to demonstrate the perfect pinch’n’pop face off move, and the Beast delivered, so much so that I think I could actually win a face off using this technique now.

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.

Last week I took in a clinic in Ridgewood, NJ put on by the American Indoor Lacrosse Association. John Mouradian, General Manager of the Philadelphia Wings, was running the show, and youth to high school players were learning the concepts of box lacrosse, and how many of them can translate out onto the field.
