Sometimes it is too cold to go outside. It does happen. But if you just can’t wait to put a stick in your hands try to find a place indoors where you can practice and work on those soft hands. Try to find a place where there are no windows or lights you can break, and don’t throw against a wall that isn’t solid!
Tips and advice from coaches, pro lacrosse players, training experts, and more.
Presented by Trilogy Lacrosse, the Leader in Lacrosse Education.
Have you ever coached a youth team? It sometimes can be challenging, and usually challenges coaches in different ways than an older team would. So what is the best way to coach youth players and teams?
This past weekend at the US Lacrosse Convention I was able to connect with lacrosse players, coaches, fans, parents, vendors, officials, and more. While we all talked about different things, a common theme was 2014, and how it would play out. Now that I’m rested up and my brain has cleared, I’m going to list out five great tips on how to this season and year the best ever.
Cradling is a fundamental skill, everyone knows that. Learn it the right way and be the laxer I know you can be! Connor Martin shows you how to work out a dirty lacrosse cradle!
It has been nearly three weeks since I attended the 2013 IMLCA convention. This post was crafted from memory in an attempt to show off my biggest takeaways from the event. The chief discussion point among my group of friends (high school and college coaches) was the value of the talks and presentations.
There are lots of skills in lacrosse that need perfecting before you can play at the highest levels. Connor Martin is here to drop some knowledge on you, in his inimitable way, and each week he’ll answer some questions from Connor Wilson about this week’s tip. This week, we’re talking about the Dive Shot!
The holiday season is in full effect, and with it comes relaxing, good food, and time with family. It can be tough to stay in shape during this time of year, but it’s always important to keep training, especially with lacrosse season starting right after the holidays. How do you stay in shape over the holidays? That’s what this week’s poster wants to know!
Connor Martin, in conjunction with Flow Society, is releasing 30 lacrosse tips over the next 29 weeks. ConBroChill made the videos with is zany crew, so they have that distinct CBC feel to them, and are quite entertaining. As an added bonus, the videos are also quite informative! Each week we’re going to post his new clip along with a Q&A from the man himself; Connor Martin!
In November, Team USA players visited San Clemente for a boys lacrosse clinic. This past weekend, San Clemente once again played host to a US Lacrosse clinic, this time a girls clinic coached by women’s national team players. MaxLaxOC was at both events, and captured some great footage.
Leverage Lacrosse is hosting a free boys lacrosse clinic Wednesday, Dec. 18, at Laurel Park in Los Alamitos. There will be two clinic sessions, first for beginners in Grades 1-5 from 4-4:50 p.m., followed by a U11-U15 clinic from 5-5:50 p.m.
Between The Faceoff Academy’s national showcase and Adrenaline’s upcoming Faceoff Challenges, we’ve been talking a lot about face offs the past few days. For this week’s Forum Friday, we’re continuing the trend. Our poster isn’t new to lacrosse, but he is new to facing off, and he needs our help to answer his face off questions.
Face offs have taken a couple of quantum leaps over the last number of years. There were always good face off guys out there, but the craft has never been practiced and studied as much as it is currently. Greg Gurenlian answered the call, and after we got through a little Faceoff Academy National Showcase recap, we got into some of the details on how the world of the face off man is rapidly changing.
Peter Tumbas is making the trip back to the IMLCA convention this year. There may only be two major coaches conventions, but the event run by the IMLCA (Intercollegiate Men’s Lacrosse Coaches Association) is the only one you should make a point to attend. Why?
