  Came across this today as it was posted a week ago on YouTube.  I believe it is from GQ Sports, which has done a series of these for other sports, asking professional athletes to analyze the quality of the performance of actors and actresses playing a sport in a movie.  I did watch the Hockey version a while back and laughed at Rob Lowe's Youngblood scenes and Goldberg's Knuckle shot for example (although I do give Rob credit for doing pretty well on skates and having him, Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves on the same junior Canadian team - Keanu is the goalie - was a nice historical fact). Anyhow, it leads with American Pie and goes from there, so enjoy it!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHC1oUJ2MLg

  Author's Note:  Michael Ward is a columnist with LaxRecords.com and is also a lacrosse parent who decided to share the good and bad of his experiences.  I appeared on the latest LaxRecords.com podcast with Michael and I can tell you that if you listened to his segment you'll know he truly understands what he is talking about.  I strongly suggest that ANY current lacrosse parent will get a lot out of what Michael wrote!   I’m often asked about travel teams. What high school program do you think is better for my son or what camps have the most impact. A word of caution … when you ask for my opinion, buckle up, you’re going to get it. I base my views on experiences I’ve had with my son, on friends whose kids play in other states, even on friends whose children play othe...

  Broadcast partner Wells Dusenbury published his feature article and video interview with Andrew Pollack, father of MSD victim Meadow Pollack, today in the Sun-Sentinel:   Excerpt: Andrew Pollack keeps a keen eye on his stopwatch as his St. Thomas Aquinas lacrosse players sprint past him. Nowadays, being on the field as the team’s statistician is an especially welcome respite from a parent’s worst nightmare. His 18-year-old daughter, Meadow, was shot to death in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas massacre on Feb. 14, one of 17 students and staffers killed. “It’s emotional every time I come here, because the kids feel my pain,” Pollack said. “Coming out here takes my mind off of everything that goes through my head during day, which is painful. I can’t even describ...

  Author's Note:  This is a link to US Lacrosse's section on those categories.  As the high school season starts to approach I thought it would make sense for players, parents and coaches to know that there is this great resource on the USL web site for information.   Excerpt: A healthy diet and good eating habits are essential for a young athlete's development and performance. Jackie Berning, Ph.D, a registered dietician and board certified specialist in sports dietetics who serves as a member of the US Lacrosse Sports Science & Safety Committee, notes that for athletes in season and for those engaged in daily workouts, consuming carbohydrates within 30 minutes after exercise and again after two hours can help muscles reload and rebuild by replacing glycogen up to...

BTB Lacrosse on YouTube has a lot of nice videos that help you understand the game and certain aspects of individual development, offense, defense, etc.
