Head Girls Lacrosse Coach
See ya all then!
Hi All, To my surprise most of the girls I have asked have not seen a lacrosse game on tv, I know the sport is "young" and it is not as easy as catching a football game on tv but there are many lacrosse games that can be viewed on youtube (High School or College/Local or national) and the "Watch ESPN" app is great for keeping up with current college level lacrosse games (the season has started!). The information that so many girls have not seen a game made me think of what a valuable tool it is for coaches, now back, I mean way back in the day when I played I never thought twice about it but watching all those football, basketball games ect... really help me understand what my coaches were telling me, I had seen these concepts numerous times on tv so it clicked when the coaches tried to teach the concepts of the game. Now I have a young daughter and know about screen time and what a challenge it can be to keep it at a proper amount but maybe once in awhile you could all encourage using just a little of that time to check out a few Lacrosse games. :-) -Thanks, Tyler
Please make sure any goggles purchased meet the ASTM 3077 standard. Here is a link to a partial list of goggles that meet this standard, it is only partial and if the goggles meet the standard they will promote it.
Some of you may have heard of the SISU mouth guards, they seem to be a bit less cumbersome. If anyone is interested I can get the "max guard" for $18 or the "Aero guard" for $16 or you can enter CHAT10 and receive 10% off. https://www.sisuguard.com/
There are not a lot of company's out there offer women's lax helmets yet as of now the Cascade is offering one of the few/only that meet the f3137 standard. BSN states it has a best price guarantee on this helmet listed at $119 I can get you more info on this if anyone has interest.
