  1. Sorry for contacting you this way but I couldn’t find a contact to email to.

    Anyway, I came across you’re guys site and it is GREAT!!! I am enthused to see the love for the game spreading through the country!! I think My site will be of great interest to your readers it has animated lacrosse plays, drills, workout videos, practice plans and Man Up Plays to help coaches coach better. You can check it out at http://www.laxlessons.com. I have already posted a link to your site and would love it if you have time to send one back or even better maybe write a short blog post on it. I am a recent graduate from Loyola College in MD where I was the team captain for two years with my twin brother Ryan. Together my brother and I have launched this site in hopes of giving young players the opportunity to learn from well informed coaches. Let me know what you think of our site and if there are any particular areas that we could improve on. Also if you would like us to guest blog at some point we would be honored to! Thanks for your time! I look foward to hearing from you
