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.
This fall we have all read a number of article talking about youth lacrosse problems, and problems that face almost all youth sports.

With the second annual Jr. NLL Tournament set to get underway, excitement is in the air and soon enough 21 youth clubs, representing eight NLL franchises, will hit the floor at Toronto Rock Athletic Centre (TRAC) in Oakville, Ontario this weekend.

Sadly, the Rhino Summer Academies have come to an end. On the bright side, it has been one incredible summer and we wrap up in beautiful Bend, Oregon!
After the Boise, Idaho Rhino Academy finished up, the road crew and I hit the road towards our next stop in Bozeman, Montana. Before this camp, I didn’t really have a sense of the skill level of the lacrosse players in Montana, so I admit that I assumed it was pretty low. After the first day of camp, I was pleasantly surprised that I was way off.
