We caught up with Greg Gurnelian and crew earlier this Summer at one of his Face Off Academy clinics in New Jersey, and later asked him some questions about the art of facing off, why he started the FOA, and what he thinks about the future of specialization at the collegiate level.
Tips and advice from coaches, pro lacrosse players, training experts, and more.

Brian Langtry is a really good lacrosse player. Getting there definitely took tons of training, including hours and hours on the wall. And sometimes, not the wall.
Recently, Alex Schmotter reached out to us to tell us about pHenOH 7.4, the world’s first alkaline sports drink, and its Indiegogo campaign. Schmotter, the founder and CEO of Phenoh, Inc., played four years of lacrosse at Cal Poly and was named a 2011 2nd-Team All-American.
We recently learned that Eric Law has taken a job with Denver City Lax, so we sat down with DCL’s Ben Allison to talk about this new hire, and what DCL has in store for the future. The Denver City Lax guys are true Game Growers, and we’re excited to see more professional lacrosse players […]
While visiting Boise, Idaho, Kyle Harrison spent time teaching local lacrosse players how to appropriately and efficiently shoot the ball while starting with the stick head low and finishing with the ball hitting the top of the net.
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.
Are there skills that are overlooked when teaching young players? This poster thinks so, and I tend to agree!
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. Thankfully, the location is still pretty killer. It slightly makes up for my average display of wizardry.
Matt Schomburg of FoGoLax.net is in Norway right now, putting on clinics and sharing the Beauty of the Face Off Battle. While Schommy was in Scandinavia, he snapped a couple of photos, and it’s clear that LAS is taking of in Norge!
Syracuse lacrosse legend Ryan Powell explains to youth and high school athletes what it takes to become the best lacrosse player on the field.
Casey Powell shares a little something Gary Gait taught him with youth and high school lacrosse players at the first annual Saratoga Springs Lacrosse Shootout in Upstate New York.
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! Bocklet tells a great story about being forced to re-learn proper mechanics […]
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. It’s just face offs, up close and personal. It might look like an ugly scrap from […]
Boston Cannons defenseman and Loyola graduate, P.T. Ricci, stops by to share his story, and how he got on the road to Major League Lacrosse.
This week’s trick is going to help you immensely with your hand-eye coordination. Because you are catching the ball with your hand on the bottom of the stick, you are working on your off hand without even knowing it.
