  • Preparing for a MLL Championship: Q&A with Tommy Kelly

    With the MLL 2016 Championship game right around the corner, we wanted to take the opportunity to ask our very own Huntington, NY store manager Tommy Kelly some questions about being on the Denver Outlaws MLL team. Kelly is currently in his rookie season with Denver, after previously playing at Virginia. Shortly after he started playing for Denver, Kelly became the manager of the Lax World Huntington location. We are certainly thankful for Kelly’s knowledge and love of the game, as well as his dedication to growing and promoting lacrosse. Kelly not only plays but also coaches at FogoLax, where they specialize in face-off instruction. As far as this weekend’s game is concerned, we got the inside scoop on Kelly as well as some insight into the MLL. Here’s some of what he had to say:

    Q: How are you and your teammates preparing for your championship game against Ohio?

    A: Hydrating, sticking to the game plan, taking care of our bodies, preparing mentally, and trying to stay focused. We’re treating this game the same way we treat every game.

    Q: In what ways has the game of lacrosse changed since you started playing?

    A: Starting at the age of 4, I’ve been through tons of rule changes; shot clock changes and annual face-off changes. And the game has continually gotten more competitive. Playing with some of the best players on earth is a huge experience as well. I’m lucky to have played with guys I used to look up to as a kid.

    Q: What advice do you have for young players?

    A: The term “hard work pays off” is 100% true. If you find your niche and find what you’re good at and work towards it, you’re going to achieve it.

    Q: How is being on a competitive team similar to being a manager?

    A: It’s all very communication based, you have to be able to talk to people in a proper manner and work as a unit.

    Q: What pregame routines do you have?

    A: Faceoff reps before every game! I always take an electrolyte tablet before a game too, it’s kind of mental, if I don’t have it I freak out a little.

    Q: What is your most rewarding lacrosse experience?

    A: As of right now, winning two championships. One in high school with Rocky Point (NY), playing with awesome players (some of them play MLL now too) and the second in college, playing for a national championship when we won in 2011.

    Q: What is some of your favorite gear? What stick and pads do you play with?

    A: I use all STX equipment at the moment, I play with an STX Duel stick, and STX gloves & elbow pads. Cleats are either Warrior or New Balance.

    Q: What is your favorite off season activity?

    A: Snowboarding or skiing. They’re both enjoyable and relaxing!

  • Lancaster Grand Opening Recap

    As the game of lacrosse spreads, we’ve made it our goal to expand and continue to fill customer's needs. First stop on the Spring 2016 expansions: Lancaster, PA. The location had its grand opening just last weekend and is now open daily 10AM to 7PM. Located right across from Park City Mall on Plaza Boulevard, this is the first location to be co-branded with Field Hockey World.

    The grand opening event featured vendors, deals, and giveaways. Nike, STX, True Lacrosse, and East Coast Dyes all donated their time and products to show their support. Partnering with those brands, we gave away STX field hockey sticks, a complete STX women’s lacrosse stick, a STX men’s lacrosse head, True Lacrosse shafts, East Coast Dyes shafts, and a variety of Nike performance apparel and accessories. Over 200 people turned out for the event throughout the day and everyone went home happy. With the opening of our Lancaster store, southeastern Pennsylvania athletes won’t have to travel far to fill their lacrosse and field hockey needs. Lax World offers both mens and womens apparel, footwear, team stores, accessories, and lacrosse services. Our educated staff are happy to help make decisions and offer information.
