Any in Ft. Lauderdale? [13 Apr 2006|01:00pm]

Is anyone on this group in the Ft. Lauderdale area? I'd really like to have someone to play catch with.

MOD POST [09 Dec 2005|02:31am]

Goodluck to everyone in this upcoming season!
Well, with an extra boost to Vero ♥.

I won't be able to play again this year - they told me that I'll more than likely be able to play in a year, but since I'm '06, that does me no good. But, I'll still be attending practically every game, so "the Beast" spirit is still there!

If anyone wants to do some kind of a car pool for Indian-River games or whatever, you know how to contact me.


Drills for the injured [29 Nov 2005|08:37pm]

I'm thowing this out hoping a veteran player or coach will respond.

Basically, I'm a lacrosse rookie. I started playing in Seattle over the summer and fell in love with the sport. Unfortunately, in expressing my love for the sport, I took a cut at too high of a speed and tore completely through my ACL. This wasn't a minor tear...I tore through it. In late October, I had surgery to graft part of my hamstring tendon into my knee to replace my ACL.

The hard part, though, is not being able to be out, be active, and get back to developing my skills. My doctor has forbidden me to so much as go jogging until January, and I can't get in a pool and practice my other sport, underwater hockey, until the end of December. I will not be given a bill of health letting me on the practice field until sometime in late April.

At the age of 26, time is starting to be against me. I want to have at least a year or two of casual lacrosse play before I start "getting too old for this", but I lost my entire summer of training and will now lose the fall and spring. I'm champing at the bit here.

So, do any of you have advice for something I can be doing while I'm restricted to mere standing and walking? I'm sure this comes up a lot in lacrosse, but since I have no local community of players to help me keep sharp during this time, I don't know what I should be doing.

hey. it's logan canale the goalie from colonial high school. i graduated in 05' as most of you may know but i just wanted to say hey to all the florida laxers and to tell ya'll to never give up because if you want to go to college out of state and play at an NCAA I or II level it will seriously KICK YOUR ASS if you are not prepared for it. so keep it up!!

ps go to the FLC clinics during the winter and say hey to me!!!!


South Florida Fall Ball [27 Jul 2005|05:17pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

My coaches(from SRHS) are planning a fall ball lacrosse league. It will be on Sunday afternoons (possibly early evening) and will begin in October. The games will be 7 versus 7. Players from all over are welcome. Current plans call for players to be matched up with players from other schools. In essence, all the team will be mixed with players from all over.

None of it is in concrete yet. But if you would like more info just comment or whatnot.

First scrimmage.... [10 Jun 2005|11:19am]

I got invited out to my first scrimmage on the Men's beginner team for LAXfest up here in Seattle (where I'm staying for the summer). I have zero experience.

Dear Lord, just don't let me break anything.

Getting started [04 May 2005|07:42pm]

[ mood | excited ]

I just got to my summer home in Seattle, WA, and one of the first things I did was go out and buy my first lacrosse stick and ball. Tomorrow, I'm going to the park to start practicing. I don't exactly know what I'm doing, but I've at least watched enough lacrosse to have a vague idea of the fundamentals. I'm thinking that I will likely add the stick and ball to some of my distance running, which will help me learn how to cradle the ball. I also figure I can find a field and just throw the ball and then run to it and scoop it. And then there's throwing against a wall.

I also was driving by a friend's place and saw that there were some guys on the lawn of a fraternity house playing catch, so there's a chance that the University of Washington has a club or something. Maybe I can hang out with them, too.

BTW, the strings on my stick are really stiff and don't seem to form much of a pocket...will they get softer with time? Also, what is an offset head, and how does it differ from a non-offset one?

Helping out a newcomer... [04 Apr 2005|01:33pm]

Okay, so hopefully, this community might be able to help me with some questions.

Technically, I'm not a lacrosse player. I'm trying to fix that state at the moment. I'm a soccer and indoor soccer player of many years who's just become incredibly bored with those sports and who is really craving something a little more high-impact. I was always a very physical player (which is one reason I always preferred indoor soccer), and I've always loved watching lacrosse.

Here at the University of Florida, I know we have a club team. I don't expect that I'd ever actually play with them, since I'm 25 and just now coming to lacrosse while most of the players on that team played lacrosse in their youth and high school years. My goal would really just be to eventually practice with them.

So, question one- am I just wasting my time? Am I too old to be taking up this sport? Should I just go back to playing intramural indoor soccer and working on my squash game?

Supposing that I'm not too old to be taking up lacrosse, my next questions are about getting started. Basically, this is the first time I've tried to take up a sport and found virtually nothing instructive online. If I were to ever want to work up to practicing with the university's club team, I'd like to take my workout time over the summer and develop basic skills. I guess, for getting started with something like that, I'd need a basic stick and a ball and I'd need some instructive materials and ideas for drills that involve only one person (since I am the only lacrosse lover I know). Right now, I don't know anything about equipment, so I don't know what I should be getting as far as starter equipment. Obviously, I don't need awesome gear to get started.

So, if anyone on here is a coach or instructor or a player of many years, and you feel like helping someone out in getting started, your advice would be most welcome.
