  • The Growth of Lacrosse in Recent Years

    lacrosse-growth-grow-game

    With increasing participation at the high school level and more and more colleges adding the game as one of their varsity sports, lacrosse is arguably in the midst of a sports renaissance.

    And the participation numbers don't lie.

    Once considered primarily a regional niche sport, lacrosse is well on its way to becoming a major sport in the United States – that is, if you don't believe that it already is! There's a professional league - Major League Lacrosse (MLL), nearly 70 Division I college programs (not to mention hundreds more if you factor in Division II and Division III programs, as well), and record-breaking participation numbers on the youth circuit. In fact, according to U.S. Lacrosse, there are nearly 750,000 laxers competing on organized teams, as of 2013. That's a 3.4 percent uptick from the previous year, and considering that over 400,000 of these registered laxers are at the youth level, this number will likely only increase even more moving forward as more grade school-aged kids pick up the sport.

    So just why is lacrosse experiencing a participation and growth boom? Here's a look: Continue reading

  • Lacrosse VS Baseball

    lacrosse-baseballThe fall season is dominated by football. In winter, there's basketball and hockey. And in the spring, there's baseball... and lacrosse. Yes, while lacrosse may not have the title of being the "national pastime," us laxers have plenty to say about why our sport is better than baseball - and vice versa - in the battle for spring sporting supremacy. And while we're certainly biased here when it comes to the lacrosse vs. baseball debate, we’ve put together a nice list of reasons as to why a stick and pads tops a glove and bat any day of the week.

  • The Lacrosse Shot Clock Debate

    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.
