Find someone who is at a higher level than you are, and create your own Training Day. Challenge yourself, see how the next elite level works and lives, and raise your game. Take pride in being a small fish in a big pond again, and you might just accomplish more than you thought possible.

The lift check is one of the most effective checks a defenseman can utilize. The “dirty” lift check is a special technique which I have developed in my style of play.

The Thompson Trio’s incredible run may have ended last weekend against Notre Dame, but the three Albany attackmen certainly have inspired a lot of players with their play.

I often get questions about picking up a groundball with a long pole, and more often than not, it seems to come from the dad of the player who is 3’2″, weighs about as much as a bag of feathers and has what seems like a 30lb and 20ft long pole. Let me start by saying that I don’t think any player should use a long pole longer than themselves.
