Justin was a complete foreigner to box lacrosse, let alone the Aleš Hřebeský Memorial. Once the world's most unique lacrosse (and potentially sports overall) experience put it's grips on the newbie, a life was changed over the course of four days.

22 games make for a long day, but that's the beauty of a 24-team, 4 day, 2 venue tournament in the Czech Republic. Get up to speed on everything through Day 3 at the Ales Hrebesky Memorial 2018 box lacrosse tournament.
Day 1 of the Ales Hrebesky Memorial 2018 in Radotin is in the books. Our own LaxAllStars Non-Olympic Athletes from Everywhere kicked off this year's event against Czech-based TJ Malešice, wrapping up with fellow newcomer from the US Jagged Mountain and Sweden's Helen Gar.
We stopped what we were doing to tune in live to the pool by pool draw in Radotin and now it's time to start speculating on who got it easy, who got a tough one, and what's the best path to the top. We're under a month from the 2018 Ales Hrebesky Memorial.
This was only the first round of many Czech Republic visits this year, and my first Winter Lax Cup, but I am sure it won't be my last. From Brno to Prague, and beyond, lacrosse is growing.
