0 - Published November 19, 2013 by in High School, Youth

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 thought it would be a good idea to ask Rhino himself some questions about the 2014 version of the event, and of course, Ryan […]

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, […]

School Bans Lacrosse Balls, And Other Dangerous Sports Equipment

0 - Published October 8, 2013 by in Youth

A Long Island middle school has banned “footballs, baseballs, lacrosse balls, or anything that might hurt someone on school grounds” during recess, and of course the issue is pedantically being painted in black and white, where the sides are lining up, diametrically opposed, and making their myopic, stultifying cases.

Mikey Stolzenberg’s story took the lacrosse world by storm last year. When people learned there was a 13 year old quadruple amputee playing lacrosse they were impressed.

Meet Cody. He plays for Newtown’s Pee Wee box lacrosse team, and is never afraid of dropping someone with a quick cross check. I just love watching this grom run around and lay people out. Turns out he can also score some goals, but Cody’s forté is clearly bringing the pain…

0 - Published June 7, 2013 by in High School, Youth

Columbus and Cleveland definitely host their share of dominant teams such as Dublin-Jerome, Upper Arlington, Rocky River, and University School. Don’t get me wrong though, Northwest Ohio has some top level teams too, like Sylvania Southview or Toledo St. Francis, but they have something better than elite teams, and that is expansion!
