Believe it or not, lacrosse balls aren’t made to last as long as we want them to.
Over the course of a season, a ball will get… let’s say… “greasy” over time.
And by greasy we mean lacrosse balls that are more slippery and harder. Greasers are harder to cradle, harder to control and come out of a pocket differently than a brand new ball. Players hate greasers because they make games and practices unpredictable. You never know how the ball will release from your stick with one of these.
There are home remedies to fix this problem but let's be honest… who really has the time or energy to go through the process? Keeping that in mind, East Coast Dyes developed their new Mint lacrosse ball to never become a greaser. Playing with these is like always using a brand new ball.
The Mint lacrosse ball is unlike most lacrosse balls because it’s made of non-rubber polymer which lasts longer than the rubber of traditional balls. East Coast Dyes maintains consistency during manufacturing by ensuring that each ball is of the highest quality and meets all standards. Best of all, each ball is made right here in the USA. Mint balls are approved for NFHS, NCAA and meetNOCSAE® SEI standards.
The lacrosse cleats and the lacrosse turf shoes that you choose to wear makes a gigantic difference in how you play on the field.
Your choice of lacrosse footwear can make all the difference between losing the game and winning the championship at the end of the season... So it’s pretty obvious that they’re pretty important.
Lacrosse is pretty tough on your feet and the wrong pair of shoes can spell disaster for you and your feet. This article will delve into the different kinds of lacrosse footwear and why you should make a conscious decision about what you decide to wear onto the field.
Big thanks to East Coast Dyes for doing this guest post featuring the new Carbon Pro shaft! They really know their stuff and we're happy to be featuring their products, specifically the Carbon Pro.
The Carbon Pro is the most technologically advanced shaft in the East Coast Dyes line. Building on the success of the original Carbon, ECD set off to build something that would be fit for the most elite players on the field. In order to do that, new, key features had to be developed. Those features include Flex Control Layering (FCL) and the all-new Kick Point Technology.
With carbon fiber, the orientation of each material layer has a major impact on the overall strength and flex profile. Through extensive testing and research, FCL was developed. This new layering technique allows the Carbon Pro to be about 12% lighter than the original Carbon, while maintaining the same strength. With typical non-carbon fiber shafts, if you take away material, your strength will decrease, but with carbon fiber that is not always the case. FCL allows ECD to get the most out the carbon fiber material.
FCL also provides the ability to change flex levels throughout the shaft, which creates Kick Points. When placed properly, Kick Points provide additional benefits based on a player’s specific playing style. For example, the 30” Carbon Pro features a High Kick Point. This provides a quick release perfect for snappy finishes.
Here is a breakdown of the new Carbon Pro line:
The 30” Carbon Pro features a High Kick Point and is rated as a Flex8 on our 10-point flex scale. The High Kick Point provides a quick release, which makes this shaft perfect for the crafty player who is all about quick feeds and finishes. The increased flex will allow you to add a little extra snap to all of your shots and passes. $139.99
The 40” Carbon Pro features a Mid Kick Point and is rated as a Flex3 on our 10-point flex scale. The Mid Kick Point provides a supremely balanced feel and allows for more accurate outlet passes to the streaking midfielders after your biggest saves. Lowering the flex rating means the shaft will be sturdier while stopping hard shots and taking checks from attackmen. As an added bonus, the 40” Carbon Pro features a unique raised texture right where you keep your top hand, so you can have the best feel possible. $149.99
The 60” Carbon Pro features a Mid Kick Point and is rated as a Flex3 on our 10-point flex scale. The Mid Kick Point provides a supremely balanced feel and allows for an accurate release perfect for long clearing passes. Lowering the flex rating means less recoil time and gives the stability you need to throw hard take away checks. As an added bonus, the 60” Carbon Pro features a unique raised texture on the bottom portion, so you always have the perfect grip when throwing checks. $199.99
Players with good stick skills earn playing time, help win games and make dependable teammates. Wall ball is a simple way to practice stick work just about anywhere with access to a brick wall or a bounceback. New and returning players can all benefit from practicing stick skills and there is no right or wrong way to do it. For anyone looking to get into a habit or switch up a current habit, here is sample wall ball routine:
Start off by standing 8-10 feet from a wall or bounceback. Try and aim for a small square on your target close to stick level. Spend about two minutes on each different strategy, longer on the ones that need extra work.
Right hand- Regular throws, not sidearm, just your go to pass. Try to only cradle once between throws.
Left hand- Same thing just left handed.
Throw right catch left- Start like you’re throwing with your right hand but switch the stick to your left when the ball is in the air so you’re catching it on the opposite side.
Throw left catch right- Same thing you just did but start by throwing on the left side, then switch and catch right.
Weak side throw right- Hold the stick as if you were throwing right handed but throw from the left shoulder instead.
Weak side throw left- Hold the stick as if you were throwing left and throw off your right shoulder instead.
Right hand quick- Stand closer to the wall now, 3-4 feet. Throw and catch right handed but don’t cradle after the catch and focus on quick reps.
Left hand quick- Same thing as the previous, just use your left hand on your left side.
Right hand tomahawk or private school- I’ve heard it called different things, either way, throw right handed releasing the pass from the top of your head. Keep the stick right in front of your forehead not off to either side of your body.
Left hand tomahawk- Hold the stick in your left hand and release the pass from the top of your head, in the middle of your body.
Play wall ball as often as you’d like and go through these exercises for specific help. Practice really does make perfect!

In the game of lacrosse, having a superior defense is essential. A solid defense can win championships or put you in a sharp losing streak.
