The opportunity to get better, and test yourself, is ever present. Shooting, playing catch, running, lifting, swimming… it all helps! But what happens when you just can’t find a wall? You find a rock and pull a Mike Powell!

If you’ve ever wanted to learn the basics of taking a face off in lacrosse, this video should be a huge help. Dom gives you a bunch of things to try as a beginner. Now, to become great, it’s going to take some practice!
Last weekend at LXM|ATS San Diego Kevin Rowen caught up with Kyle Harrison and Sam Bradman at their shooting clinic with Peter Baum. The kids were really excited to see these guys take some rips, and K18 gave his famous triple-threat shooting talk while Baum focused on shooting on the run and Bradman showed off his one-of-a-kind shooting form.
We’ve had a ton of great video from the Maximum Lacrosse Camps in NYC, but we’re not done yet! CW asked Rob Pannell to explain his thought process when dodging from X, and Mr. Pannell delivers, as usual!
Both Rob and James Pannell have been working Max Seibald’s Maximum Lacrosse Camps in NYC this week, and while the two definitely get along very nicely, the spirit of healthy competition is alive and well in this family!
Schommy is one of the most knowledgeable, passionate, and competitive people I’ve ever met. He’s also a great friend, proud Australian, and one heck of a face off instructor. CW has known Schommy since 2001, and it’s about time you get to know him too.

Now Schommy runs FoGoLax, and he travels around the country doing clinics, and passing on his knowledge base to kids, and the future FoGos of tomorrow. Last weekend, he was in St. Louis, and had a great turn out of players, and kids who wanted to learn the details of the battle at the X.
Last week’s Hot Pot was all about Travel, and how it will do you good. I had just returned from Prague, and couldn’t get it out of my head. However, the week before that, I had posted a Hot Pot talking about Rethinking The Game, and Brian Silcott, living lacrosse legend, responded with a comment that blew my mind.
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.
This week’s Spotted comes to us from our very own Connor Wilson! C-dub was up late one night catching up on his Buffy the Vampire Slayer, when he came across this gem.
Two weeks ago, I provided a video featuring a number of MLL veterans and hopefuls getting together for some preseason training. This past week, I headed back to downtown Brooklyn with the talented Bill Schick, and I trained with the MLL guys for a while, while Bill shot some stellar video.
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.
