  • The Lacrosse Shot Clock Debate

    Posted on October 31, 2014 by Lax World

    Lacrosse Shot ClockOne of the reasons why people love college basketball so much is the pace of the game. And a big part of this pace is the 35 second shot clock, in which teams possessing the basketball have either 35 seconds to score a basket, or rebound a miss. Should the shot clock expire, or the opposition snags a rebound, the opposition is awarded possession of the ball and takes their turn to score.

    To speed the pace of the lacrosse game, the NCAA lacrosse men's rules committee has been tossing around the idea of a shot clock for years. For reference, Major League Lacrosse (MLL) enforces a 60-second shot clock. In 2012, the NCAA rules committee - which meets once every two years - introduced a 30 second manual countdown, which was only enforced after the officials issued a stalling warning to the team possessing the ball. At the recent 2014 rules committee meeting, the committee took the shot clock a step further, requiring college programs to grandfather in a visible clock to account for the 30 seconds of time after the stalling warning.

  • Lacrosse Arm Guards and Arm Pads... Are They the Same?

    Posted on October 9, 2014 by Lax World

    Brine lacrosse arm guardLacrosse is a high contact sport with players whacking each other with their sticks, and protecting the arms is critical during play. Although the differences between protective arms guards and protective arm pads are subtle, position and level of play often determine which is more suitable.

    Arm pads provide good protection and have less padding than arm guards. These pads protect from the middle lower of the bicep to the upper part of the forearm along with elbow protection. Arms pads are a good choice for lacrosse players who don’t mind getting checked and for those who want optimal mobility. While all positions can use arm pads, two-way midfielders are the most common. Since defense positions are rarely on the receiving end of checks and impact, these players often wear small arm pads. Continue Reading
