  • Lax Season is Starting Up

    Get Into Gear for Lax Season!

    Lacrosse season is almost here, and teams across the country are getting ready to get back on the field. Collegiate lax season is already underway, with all teams starting to practice, and even a few have already kicked off their season.

    When the NCAA released their preseason rankings, it had reigning champion, Duke, at number one, with a total of 374 points. The runner-ups, Syracuse, ranked second, with a total of 346 points. North Carolina follows in third, tallying 337 points, and rounding out the top 5 are Denver, and Notre Dame. These rankings will change and fluctuate numerous times throughout the season with new teams entering the top 25, and others being voted out.

    In addition to NCAA champion lacrosse apparel, Lax World offers gear from your favorite schools, including Johns Hopkins, Maryland, Loyola, and more! Be sure to get in gear before the season starts. With Lax World, you can do that in style.

    2012-2013 Lacrosse Season

    Last season, the Duke Blue Devils claimed the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship over the top-seeded Syracuse. Syracuse jumped out to a 5-0 lead. In the 2nd quarter the Blue Devils picked up the pace to close the gap. The Blue Devils maintained this momentum throughout the game, and eventually outlasted the Syracuse Orange with a final score of 16-10

    As we take a final look at last seasons final season rankings, we see that just because you end the season ranked #1, that doesn’t ensure a trip to the championships, as Duke and Syracuse proved.

    The defending champions, Blue Devils recently held their first organized practice in a brand new training facility. The practice consisted of light drills, which Duke believes will help them transition into the coming season. The Blue Devils opened the season against Jacksonville on February 8, 2014. Check out the video below to get an idea of what an NCAA Championship team does to prepare for lacrosse season.

    Do you recognize any of Duke’s drills from your own practices? Which ones would you add to the regiment shown here? Here are a few home drills that focus on fundamentals shown in the Duke training video. And do you think that the Blue Devils can lead Duke to another Men’s Lacrosse championship? If not, who do you think is their biggest competitor? Be sure to share your thoughts with us.

  • STX K18 Products on Sale at Lax World

    STX K18 Products Now On Sale at Lax World
    Sticks, pads, arm guards, shoulder pads, arm pads and more; lacrosse is a grueling, physical game. So, it only makes sense that if you play, you are protected as much as possible to avoid injury. That's where the STX K18 product line comes in. Inspired by Major League Lacrosse (MLL) player Kyle Harrison, the STX K18 line is considered "the best of the best" when it comes to lacrosse equipment. And now, this product line is available at Lax World!

    Here's a closer look at some of the items on the STX K18 product line:

    Arm guards: Lacrosse is a physical game where you are prone to hacking and whacking from opponents trying to move you off the ball. That's why a quality arm guard is crucial - so that padding absorbs these stick checks (as opposed to your arms!).. The STX K18 arm guards are non-slip, so they won't jostle up and down your arm during game action. They're also designed with what's called d3o technology, which provides better impact absorption than other types of pads.

    Arm pads: If you need arm padding, but a smaller and more flexible option than arm guards, the STX K18 arm pads also feature d3o impact absorption technology in the areas that you want.

    Shaft: Arguably, your most important piece of equipment is the stick shaft. You want it to be durable, yes - but you also want it to be lightweight so that in-game performance isn't hampered. The STX K18 shaft is ideal for players looking to upgrade from aluminum material. It's made of 7075 alloy and is an amazing stick shaft for players at youth through junior high levels.

    Stick head: The stick head is another critical part to the overall lacrosse makeup. The STX K18 u-head is legal for all skill levels and features forward cant technology to allow for better accuracy on shots and passes. Specifically, the stick head is designed for the intermediate player or skill levels ranging from youth to high school.

    Shoulder pads: Shoulder pads are important for the same reason that arm guards and arm pads are. The STX K18 model offers an elevated chest plate to help reinforce the chest protection of the pads. The shoulder pads are made of hard plastic shells and there are also adjustable straps for back protection. The upper arm pads are removable and adjustable. It's an ideal accessory for skill levels ranging from youth to high school.

    Other products in the STX K18 line include gloves and different models of arm pads. Products are available in a variety of colors and sizes, and are all available now at Lax World. This product line is among the best of the best for lacrosse players of all skill levels - and now you can see why. Don't just settle for any lacrosse equipment, get the best!

  • A Beginner's Guide to Necessary Lacrosse Equipment

    Have you ever wondered where lacrosse got its origins? Its origins date as far back as a Native American game played by young warriors to prepare them for battle when games could have 100 to 1,000 players. Today's version has 10 players per team and requires specific safety gear. Beginners should consider the following equipment to get started in Lacrosse:

    Gloves: Hits on the hands are common in beginner lacrosse, so well padded lacrosse gloves are a must.

    Arm and Elbow Pads: Protect the arms from opponents' slashing lacrosse sticks. Look for well padded but flexible dense foam arm pads for maximum protection.

    Forearm Pads: These pads fill the gap between the gloves and the arm pads.

    Cleats: High-top lacrosse cleats are designed to stay on during a game (versus cleats from other sports).

    Shoulder Pads: These pads should fully protect the shoulders and also extend hard padding down the chest.

    Rib Pads: Some players wear these to protect their ribs and kidneys from poke checks; however, some players find them to be too bulky.

    Lacrosse Balls: Stock up on the hard rubber balls used in lacrosse for practice sessions.

    Helmet: Protecting your head is crucial in this tough sport with lots of contact.

    Mouth Guard: Protect the teeth from errant elbows and sticks; buy one that can attach to the helmet.

    Groin Protection: Also known as a "cup", is vital for male players.

    Lacrosse Stick: Beginner sticks have large, wide heads with soft mesh for easier catching; however, they offer less control and durability than an aluminum stick with hard mesh. Advanced lacrosse sticks have a titanium shaft, premium head, hard mesh and custom stringing.

    Optional Items

    Lacrosse Goal and Net: It’s always good to have your own lacrosse goal on hand so you can practice during your own free time.

    Lacrosse Shooting Targets: Start learning to aim your shot and hit your corners with a Target to put in front of your goal.

    You can find all of these products at Lax World today!

  • Proper etiquette for cheering on your child

    For many parents, Lacrosse isn't easy to understand. For boys especially, the sport can be physical, resulting in bumps and bruises during the course of a match. In the girl's version, injury is less of a concern, but as with any sport, the possibility is always there.

    Because of the various levels of understanding, and the highly competitive nature of the sport, U.S. Lacrosse has indicated some guidelines that parents should follow as they support their child's participation.

    Learn the Rules

    One of the most important things that parents of lacrosse players need to understand is study the rules of the game. Without this knowledge, it is difficult to discern between a legal hit and a non-legal hit. Parents who don't have this knowledge of the rules often attend lacrosse matches where they believe a foul is being committed against their child. Other times, a parent might yell out and suggest that their child hit another player illegally. Parents don't necessarily want anyone to get hurt, they just don't understand the parameters of the game.

    Don't Obsess About Competition

    While lacrosse can be very competitive, the most important element is the child having fun. There are children who naturally possess talent for the sport, and those who are destined to be a mediocre player regardless of how much they practice. Either scenario is just fine. Whether your child has special talent or not, it's important not to put all your eggs in the lacrosse players head, and let your child find his/her own goals and dreams where the sport is concerned. Athletic scholarships are increasingly becoming more rare, and pressuring a child to be good enough to achieve one just brings unnecessary stress.

    Be There and Ask Questions

    Part of being a lacrosse parent includes taking an active interest in the game. This means attending matches whenever possible, and asking your child questions about their experience. Avoid emphasizing on winning, and focus more on what your child is learning from and enjoying during practices and games.

    Also, take time to ask the coaches and officials questions, preferably not during an actual match. These questions should be presented in a respectful manner, for example, if you are confused about a hit you believed to be foul, it's a good idea to get an explanation. Maintaining communication with everyone involved creates a social experience for everyone.

    Respect Coaches, Officials, Other Parents, and Players

    One of the cornerstones of lacrosse values is to respect the game. This means controlling impulses, especially aggressive ones, when attending matches. Yelling things like, "Nice job," or, "Great Block!" are appropriate and encouraged. Making specific suggestions on how your child should play is not. Coaches need to be able to coach without contradicting information from parents. The same goes for officials and the other players on the field.
