One of the ultimate ironies of sports occurs when coaches discipline “lazy” players by making them run.
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.
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?
Bitter Lacrosse is hosting its inaugural Oceana Lax Festival at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club this Jan. 25-26. With its Endless Summer-inspired tagline, “in search of the perfect game,” Bitter Lacrosse’s first California event will host six boys divisions and three girls divisions.
The Box Lacrosse Association of America (BLA) has formed to give American players a new option for playing “real” box lacrosse.
Coaches, players, and fans often compare sports referees to police officers when explaining the authority that a referee has over a game. While it is an easy comparison to make, everyone who makes it seriously understates the amount of authority that a referee actually possesses.
While practice may be relegated to the confides of an indoor gym up North, teams all across the state of Florida gathered at North Broward Preparatory School in Coconut Creek this past weekend to compete in the 5th Annual Jingle Brawl 7 v 7 Lacrosse Tournament.
Registration is now open for the second annual Saratoga Lacrosse Shootout. The 2014 Shootout features youth boys’ competition in grades 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, and High School A and B divisions.

We have a very special Forum Friday this week. At LaxAllStars we talk a lot about growing the game, and honestly, we mean it. So when we get a post in the Community Forum saying that a dad needs help picking his son’s first stick, we can’t but lend a helping a hand!
You hear really strange rule interpretations when working as a traveling lacrosse official. I listen to the most incorrect explanations of what the current lacrosse rules are at every level I officiate and every region I do games in.

US Lacrosse recently released 2014 rules changes and points of emphasis for the 2014 lacrosse season. Although not a ton has changed, the US Lacrosse rules committee continues to make advances toward keeping young athletes safe while competing in a full contact sport.
Minnesota is on board, are you? If you read my last article about the Jr. NLL, you probably noticed the guys dressed in the yellow honey comb jerseys. That would be the Junior Swarm and although they haven’t been playing lacrosse indoors for very long, the instruction and commitment they have received from Aime Caines, Ryan Benesch and the rest of the Swarm organization, is what I believe rocketed them to the top.
Fed up that the federal shutdown was keeping them off their practice fields, a group of young lacrosse players in Northern Virginia challenged the government in court. And at least for now, they won.
