    lacrosse-injury

    As it is with any sport, athletes who play lacrosse are susceptible to injury. Throw in the fact that lacrosse is somewhat of a contact sport, and played with metal sticks, and you're dealing with a variety of potential injuries for the average player. With that being said, while there is the potential for injury in lacrosse, there's also a plethora of protective equipment that the laxer should be wearing to keep themselves as safe as possible at all times - such as gloves, helmets, and shoulder pads. Proper preparation can also help one to avoid injury.

    Here's a look at some of the more common lacrosse injuries, as well as what - if anything - can be done to help prevent them: Continue Reading

    If you're familiar with lacrosse, you already know that the game is growing by leaps and bounds, and that participation numbers in the United States are increasing year after year. This additional interest in the sport has made it a viable one at the collegiate level, as more and more Division I schools are adding the program to their respective athletic departments. For instance, as of 2014, there were 67 Division I college lacrosse programs - and that's not even considering the 57 Division II programs and 216 Division III programs.

    So, yes, for those that work hard enough, there is an opportunity to play the game at the next level. Perhaps you're even among the few that earn a lacrosse scholarship (per NCAA rules, DI programs are allowed to award 12.6 scholarships per four years to lacrosse recruits). But it goes without saying that some lacrosse colleges are a cut above the rest. With that being said, here's a look at the best Division I college lacrosse programs to play for. Continue Reading

    New to lacrosse? Thinking about transitioning to a new position? Are you trying to become more versatile to the point where you can play multiple positions?

    Whatever your reasoning, it’s important to note that all positions (goaltender, defense, midfielder, long-stick midfielder and attacker) are important pieces of the lacrosse team puzzle. But with that being said, the position that a laxer plays can say a lot about their style of play, and their particular skillset. So, what does your position say about you? We decided to take a closer look. Here’s a look at the lacrosse positions: Continue Reading

  • What is it Like to be a Professional Lacrosse Player?

    Posted on February 5, 2015 by Lax World

    professional-lacrosse-player

    One thing that has helped spur the year-after-year growth in lacrosse participation has unquestionably been the implementation of the nation's premiere professional league, the MLL, or Major League Lacrosse. Founded in 1999, the league consists of 8 teams, and average attendance is about 6,500 spectators per game. Over the years, the MLL games have been increasingly televised on ESPN and CBS Sports Network, helping the league reach new heights. There's also the National Lacrosse League (NLL), which is played indoors. The NLL plays its season in the winter and spring, and the MLL begins in the spring and runs into late summer, enabling players to participate in both leagues.

    However, contrary to what many young lacrosse players might think, playing professional lacrosse in the MLL isn't at all like playing in the NBA, NHL, NFL and MLB - and for a variety of reasons. Here's a look: Continue Reading

  • These are the 10 Things that Lacrosse Players are Tired of Hearing

    Posted on January 29, 2015 by Lax World

    lacrosse-player-stereotype

    There’s no denying that the lacrosse community is a tight one. It’s similar to the hockey community, in that, although becoming more popular, the game isn’t as “mainstream” as the likes of baseball, football or basketball. Because of this, players and coaches in the community know each other fairly well and get along pretty well in an effort to grow the sport.

    With that being said though, there are always naysayers spewing misinformation about the game or just “not getting it.” And this drives laxers crazy. Here’s a look at 10 things lacrosse players are tired of hearing: Continue Reading

  • Ever Wonder How Lacrosse Sticks Are Made? Here's a Look!

    Posted on January 22, 2015 by Lax World

    lacrosse-stick-made

    Modern sticks offer many advantages over the traditional ‘crosse.’ Thanks to new materials they are lighter, stronger, easier to grip, and provide better ball control. The basic design hasn’t changed, though, and the 17th Century missionaries who first saw the game played would recognize them. Players still grip the stick, using a net to scoop up and hold the ball. What is different here are the materials and manufacturing processes. Continue Reading
