YML2 plays CSI: when the ball gets STUCK in your STICK

coach gear parents penalties rules uslacrosse

How cold was it on the sidelines of that lax tourney last night?

The post below was dated March 29, 2016.  It was updated as of November 1, 2016. We kicked off fall 2016 fall ball with a lax tourney last Saturday and we're looking at three more through the month of November.  Are you in the same boat? Well if you are, consider reading the product review below.  Because the blanket reviewed is one of the best things I have ever purchased. It's an EXPENSIVE choice - but having now put this blanket through HOURS of non stop rain at several soccer tournaments and been 100% dry underneath, I can tell you...
