Youth
It's all about the kids! More kids play lacrosse today than ever before. Our sport is quickly becoming the #1 choice for young athletes.

The recruiting process has also accelerated the club team tryout timeline. A vast majority of club teams are now hosting tryouts in August and September to ensure their teams have been selected ahead of the November tournament circuit. This CDP asks what makes a good tryout?
A great coach is a valuable commodity. At any level, from that of our youth to national teams, a great coach can be the difference between disappointing performance and the highest levels of success.

So what makes a great coach, and is there anything that makes someone a great coach within the sport of lacrosse?
US Lacrosse today announced that 126 schools and civic organizations across 32 states and Washington, D.C. have been selected as 2014 Soft Lacrosse Equipment Grant recipients.

I wrote about problems and solutions in youth lacrosse yesterday, and my commentary applied best to the North American region of the world. My key problem areas were Coaching, Peer Pressure, Too Much Gear, and the Scholarship Lie. But what about international youth lacrosse problems? Are there different issues facing the international lacrosse community? If so, what are they?
