  1. Thank you for posting the gap year article and best of luck withlaxbuzz. California is a potential hotbed for young lacrosse players interested in playing in college.

    I will be in California November 1-3 and presently arranging 2 additional seminars (speaking Nov. 3 in Newbury Park) for families on college recruiting. If there is interest, I could arrange a visit additional lacrosse locations while I’m out there.

    I will forward my monthly articles directly to laxbuzz beginning next month.

  2. Nice site for information for those of us that want to know more.Keep up the good work!!

  3. Love the website. Really comprehensive. Is there a section just for photos?

  4. Hi,
    I’m wondering if you could please post this on behalf of Lax In LA. Thanks! -Sean

    Teams wanted: Post-season lacrosse tournament: L.A. Watts Summer Games

    Time is running out to get your teams involved for this really exciting opportunity to play some high quality lacrosse this summer!

    Hi everyone,

    This is an update from my previous e-mail. Lax In LA’s Kate Marks and I are the chairpersons for the newest addition to the world renowned L.A. Watts Summer Games… lacrosse!

    The Games were started in 1968 as a response to the 1965 Watts Riots and consists of 17 boys and girls athletic events.
    The LAWSG mission (very similar to Lax In LA’s) is to build bridges of understanding among high school youth. The games strive to promote positive interaction, respect and achievement through spirited competition in athletics and arts.
    Participation at the games is expected to exceed 7000 students this summer (more competitors than the Olympics!). The LAWSG is the largest high school athletics competition in the country. Please see: http://www.lawsg.org for more info.
    The 2009 L.A. Watts Summer Games will take place on June 13-14 and 20-21 at the Home Depot Center, USC Galen Center, Los Angeles-Southwest College and several area high schools.

    For lacrosse, the games will occur on the campus of Los Angeles-Southwest College. The plan for the boys’ side this year is to have a 16 team tournament, with a guaranteed 2 games per team. Currently registered boys’ teams are: Culver City, Palisades, Harvard-Westlake, Manual Arts and Huntington Park. We are open to out of state teams as well.

    This tourney is fully cleared by the Southern and Los Angeles City Section CIF. Due to the tournament being in the summer period, CIF and Club teams may play each other! This is a great chance to play a few more games as a team after the end of your season.

    Pricing per team is $150.

    Please visit the LAWSG resgistration page: http://lawsg.org/Default.aspx?pageId=134066

    Thanks,
    -Sean McKeon
    President, Los Angeles Inner-city Lacrosse Association (Lax In LA)

  5. SADDLEBACK HIGH SCHOOL LACROSSE TO RETAIN CIF STATUS
    JOINT BOOSTER AND DISTRICT FUNDING ASSURE CONTINUATION OF CIF LACROSSE

    After two months of discussions, an understanding was reached between the Saddleback Valley School District and Saddleback Lacrosse Boosters to continue CIF lacrosse within the district. The lacrosse boosters have assured the district that the individual programs will offset additional costs that the district is unable to absorb because of the current budget constraints.

    The lacrosse programs in the district have been very successful and impacts hundreds of student-athletes (six of the eight varsity teams in the district participated in the 2009 playoffs). Lacrosse provides a positive impact on the players, the high schools and the district. Because of its fast-paced competitive nature, lacrosse remains the fastest growing sport in the nation and with that, increased NCAA opportunities for the athletes.

    After reviewing past expenses and projecting expenses for the upcoming year, the district requested the boosters have a specific amount of funds on-hand prior to the 2009-2010 school year. The boosters immediately satisfied that request by presenting documentation showing current balances exceeding 5-times the requested amount.

    We now all look forward to the continued success of lacrosse.

  12. I too run a lacrosse forum. Talk all things lacrosse and sell/buy/trade gear all at http://www.thelaxforums.com. Thanks.

  13. We are looking for a boys h.s. varsity lacrosse tournament the last week of March. We would love to see something in a warm climate – Nevada, So. Utah. etc.

    Anyone know of anything.

  14. “Lacrosse As Art Form” is a great picture. Just found the site and will regularly visit. Will spread the word.

  15. Directed by socially conscious filmmaker Emily Abt, Toe to Toe tells the story of the friendship and rivalry between lacrosse mates Tosha and Jesse, two senior girls at a competitive Washington, D.C. prep school. Tosha is an African American scholarship student from Anacostia, one of Washington`s poorest areas, while Jesse is a troubled and promiscuous white girl from the ritzy suburbs of Maryland. The two forge a close and genuine bond on the field, but their friendship unravels as they navigate through race and class related obstacles. When Jesse and Tosha discover that they’ve both been dating the same boy, the conflict becomes explosive. Toe to Toe is a powerful reminder of the transforming power of honesty and the way that those who test us often make us better. An Official Selection at Sundance 2009.

  16. Looking for a Junior College LAX program in Southern California. Can you direct me to a website or listing? If not do you have any teams out there that you know of?

  17. Visit Freshlax.com for new music and lax news

  18. Staying in La Jolla June 23 thru the end of July looking to hook up with H.S. Lax team . I will be a Jr. Play varsity Mid/Att

  19. My name is John Lintz and I an instructor at the St. Francis Xavier Lacrosse Academy in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

    Every year, we travel south to showcase our talent and provide a competitive lacrosse experience for our grade ten to twelve’s. Last season we entered two tournaments in the Philadelphia, PA, and Washington, DC, spent ten days in the area, and played two exhibition games against local high schools. Due to lack of local competition, this is often the only game play the kids are able to experience during the season, and it serves as the focal point of our field lacrosse unit.

    This year, we are looking for a similar experience in a different location. Ideally, we want to enter second teir tournament or two and possibly a chance to work with local instructors during the week to experience a few practices with focus of field lacrosse-specific skill development. We are an academy and not a club team, so our kids span a wide skill, age, and ability range, most come from a box-lacrosse background, and many are not acclimated to the field game. Ideally, we would like to plan the trip sometime in November if it is at all possible.

    It would be a huge help if you could provide any information on tournaments in your area or nearby which might work for us or to put us in contact with high school/college instructors to set up some practices or exhibition games.

    Here is a link to our academy website, http://www.stfxlacrosse.com/index.php.

    The head instructor and program founder is Jamey Bowen, a former member of Team Canada’s National Men’s Field Lacrosse Program, a member of the Edmonton Rush and Vancouver Ravens of the NLL, and a 3 year player at Sonoma State in Northern California.

    Thank you for your time, please message me back at JBML16@hotmail.com, message Jamey at info@stfxlacrosse.com.
