Over the past few years on the LaxAllStars homepage, the College Lacrosse Video Explosion has become an LAS regular. Putting together some of the best college lacrosse videos on the internet in one place makes life easier for any lacrosse fan – but why should we stop with just college lacrosse? Without further ado, we present the first Southland Lax Video Explosion, featuring some of the best videos of the 2014 lacrosse season in the Southland.
Adrenaline Lacrosse has announced the rosters for the fourth annual Adrenaline All-American game, which will feature 55 of the best seniors in the West, as well as a new event, the Stars and Stripes Summer Festival.
This Saturday at 6 p.m. there will be a Los Angeles Masters Lacrosse game at Glendale High School that also will serve as a fundraiser for the Glendale High School lacrosse program. Sunday, there will be an all-ages pick-up game at Glendale HS at 10 a.m.
Bitter Lacrosse is hosting its inaugural Oceana Lax Festival at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club this Jan. 25-26. With its Endless Summer-inspired tagline, “in search of the perfect game,” Bitter Lacrosse’s first California event will host six boys divisions and three girls divisions.
Adrenaline Youth Lacrosse (AYL), which will run from late February through the end of May, already has more than 10 Los Angeles programs intending to participate according to Adrenaline’s website. These programs will have boys teams in five divisions, beginning with Kindergarden-1st Grade all the way up to U15, as well as a girls 6th-8th Grade division.
January is a big month for Adrenaline Lacrosse, with three consecutive weekends of events in Southern California. This weekend (Jan. 3-5), the Adrenaline Challenge in San Diego kicks off the New Year. West Coast Starz tryouts will then be held the following weekend (Jan. 11-12), and LXM|ATS Los Angeles (Jan. 18-19) will cap off the month’s events.
The Southern California lacrosse family came together last Saturday at La Costa Canyon High School in San Diego for the Aaron Loy Lacrosse Shootout. Loy, a freshman lacrosse player at UCSB and 2013 graduate of La Costa Canyon, fell ill with Neisseria (bacterial) meningitis in November, and had his feet amputated in order to save his life after complications. The tournament, which featured 10 games with over 300 players ranging from 5th Grade to Grandmasters (40 plus), was organized by the La Costa Canyon lacrosse community in support of Loy and his family.
In November, Team USA players visited San Clemente for a boys lacrosse clinic. This past weekend, San Clemente once again played host to a US Lacrosse clinic, this time a girls clinic coached by women’s national team players. MaxLaxOC was at both events, and captured some great footage.
Leverage Lacrosse is hosting a free boys lacrosse clinic Wednesday, Dec. 18, at Laurel Park in Los Alamitos. There will be two clinic sessions, first for beginners in Grades 1-5 from 4-4:50 p.m., followed by a U11-U15 clinic from 5-5:50 p.m.
Faceoff-specific training seems to be a growing trend in lacrosse, with organizations like Greg Gurenlian’s Faceoff Academy and FOGOLax teaching faceoff specific mechanics and drills. Adrenaline caught the faceoff bug over the summer with its first Faceoff Challenge in Orange County. Now, ADRLN and the Faceoff Factory are bringing the program to Los Angeles on Dec. 28 and to San Diego on Dec. 29.
A few weekends ago, the Adrenaline High Rollers: SoCal recruiting event took place at Orange Coast College. Our friends at MaxLaxOC attended the event and put together two awesome videos, including a video of the High School All-Star game.
Adrenaline takes over Orange County this Saturday and Sunday with two events: High Rollers: SoCal at Orange Coast College and the Orange County Fall Brawl at Capistrano Valley High School.
The US Men’s National Team will be holding a clinic this Sunday, Nov. 3, for boys in Grades 3 through 12 at Vista Hermosa Sports Park in San Clemente.
We caught up with Chris Jewett, director of Leverage Lacrosse and first-year head coach at Los Alamitos High School, to talk about the LA Box Lacrosse League and the upcoming playoffs.
