Two suggestions for your U6-U10 lax player on a snow day.

There's snow coming down by us today, but the countdown to lacrosse season continues... We've got two suggestions for killing time if you are stuck in the house: 1) use your mini stick in the basement to practice your low shots. 2) print this puzzle and get to work. It's a small distraction when you want to be outside - but embrace your inner artist.  Remember, lax season is less than three weeks away. Click here to download YML2's latest dot-to-dot puzzle.

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

coach gear parents penalties rules uslacrosse

We saw it happen.  Like Big Foot we'd heard the tales but never seen it in person.  A middie winds up to take a shot and...nothing.  He swings again.  Nothing.  All players around him scan the turf. No ball. He swings again, again and again.  Five tries later the official is standing next to him. The ball is stuck in his mesh.  Nervous giggling from parents. Coach shakes his head and turns to get the player another stick.   On the surface the stick didn't look too bad - so what was going on? The players mom brought the head...

Five FUN ways for your LAX (male or female) player to stay sharp during the 'off season'

Ah yes. Here we are staring down the slowest part of the summer.  The best part of the summer some say - when time seems endlessly available, the sun won't quit, and there is no-where anyone has to be...no camp, no games, nothing but unstructured time. Our family chooses to spend these days at the beach - sunburned, body surfing and snacking on watermelon. [insert sound of record player screeching to a stop.] REALITY IS - that fills about half of our day and then the rest is spent listening to our two lax kids saying, 'what do I do...

Top five reasons to bring your family to a United Womens Lacrosse (UWLX) game

We drove to Johns Hopkins last weekend for the FIRST EVER UWLX finals.  The games were great.  The athleticism displayed on the field was amazing.  The stick skills were truly inspiring. All of the players should be congratulated for their display of talent. If you missed them  - you can still replay the games on ESPN3. But ESPN won't show you why you should bring your daughter to these games.  Sure, it's got the highlights, great camera work and the commentators really know their stuff. But they don't show you the angle WE got on the action. From our vantage...
