11.15 Announcement

In partnership with Cascade and Maverik Lacrosse, is excited to announce a lacrosse helmet design contest centered around something that is close to our hearts. Prior to founding Lacrosse All Stars, Jeff Brunelle and Ryan Craven both played in the MCLA, a league that is made up entirely of collegiate student athletes who pay to play.

When we were in college, the league did not get much attention, but as the rise of new media continues, more and more MCLA teams are starting to be recognized for their talent and contributions to the sport. While we at LAS won’t take any credit for the increase in notoriety, we will admit that we feel a certain obligation to give the league the attention that it deserves.

That is why today we are launching a contest in which you – the lacrosse fan, player, coach, game grower – can design a helmet inspired by your favorite MCLA team for a chance to win an exact replica of the masterpiece you created.

Grand Prize (1): Exact replica of the masterpiece you create
Second Prize (5): #StringItForward Pack with LAS Stringing Kit

How to enter:

1. Select any MCLA team you want to design a helmet for (view the full list at

2. Go to FACTORYCUSTOM.COM and select the Cascade helmet of your choice to custom design (Note: Designs from the customizer will not be accepted. Make sure to use the new customizer!)

3. Get busy! Designs should only have features available on the customizer – designs with other embellishments (e.g., logos) will not be accepted.

4. Once you have a finished product, post it to the MCLA Helmet Design Contest thread in the LAS Community

The deadline to enter is November 25 26. One entry per person.

Soon after, all LAS members and Facebook fans will receive notification that voting has begun, with specific instructions on how to vote.

We are especially excited to be teaming up with Cascade and Maverik Lacrosse on this project because they have always shown interest in our history as college lacrosse players. We look forward to seeing your awesome helmet designs!

And now, a little inspiration from Maverik’s Billy Bitter:
