Hi I am a freshman in high school and I really want to make varsity lacrosse this year. I play defense and I wanted to know if you could recommend anything to get my stick skills and my overall skills the best they could be before the season starts
Sure! I recommend lots of footwork, that includes ladders and shuffling. I've started this cone workout I can share if you'd like, I usually did it during club and its super helpful to have quicker feet and reactions. Play wall ball as well, watch lax games. ESPN has the championship online, watch Maryland's #5 Douty. Try to mirror what some of the best defenders do.
I live in Minnesota (or as we say Minnesoda) there are NO clinics available during the winter. How should I keep of with my lax skills?
Wall ball! practice doing ground balls, practice cradling, stay in shape, and watch lots of games!
Do you think using the new runner that is in the Crux 500 in my Crux 10 is a good idea?? Personally I didn't like the head of the 500 because it was a lot harder to do ground balls
I say go for it! For my Crux 10 I have the runway pocket, but was considering using the launch.
I'm not sure whether I should be answering this question or not. But when college coach asks me what other schools am I talking to, should I answer?
Yes, always be honest with them :)
Have you hear of Janet Holdsworth?
I have not
How do you manage your time?
Naps and an agenda book! And definitely prioritizing :)
I have played lacrosse since 4th grade, I had a metal shaft for 4 years, was it bad that I waited that long?
Nope! There's nothing wrong with that, but if you'd like a new shaft you can definitely get a new one :)
would a defensive midfielder benefit more from the exult 500 or the fortress 500?
I'd say the exult 500
If I try out as a walk on for a team and don't make it , does that mean I still have to attend that university?
Yes, but you can transfer to another school.
I used to have a community wall very close to my house but now the city took it down and it's been a month and I stayed after one time to play against the school wall and I was horribly worse than I used to be :( any suggestions? I can't stay after school everyday because I wouldn't have a ride
Hmm, you can try playing wallball at lunch. I used to do that sometimes!
if I send you a vid on ig will you tell me how to make my stick skills better
Yeah sure!! :)
Ok so I'm planning on getting my first new stick after using my older sisters for a super long time, and was wondering if you could help me out? I play defensive mid or just defensive. Thanks!!
Yeah! How long have you played for?
I want to show you why my ball keeps hitting the ground, IG?
Yeah sure!! Send me a picture or a video or something
will the fortress 500 head fit on the exult 500 shaft?
my wall ball always hits the ground first is it bc of my "wall"?
Try getting close to the wall and make sure your follow through is pointed at the wall
What are the major differences between the exult 500 and fortress 500 other than that they were designed for specific positions? What makes them "specifically designed for middie/defense?"
The designs, the fortress is wider for easier interceptions and defensive play
what club team did you play for???
MC Elite & ULAX
i just made a club team for my first year and the coaches havw different ways of coaching than my coach that i have had for the past 5 years has how do you recommend ajusting?
Listen and ask questions if you need to, don't just ignore them and think your old way is better
What grade were you in when you committed
Will u follow my account lol
what state r you from
any shooting tips
Practice, shoot at the corners or right inside the corners, turn your hips and your shoulders in towards the net, feet pointed at the goal too
I'm in the stage in the recruiting process where I'm dozens of emails from colleges everyday asking to visit their school, talking to coaches on the phone, and taking official visits. But how does committing and scholarship money come into the conversation with a coach without sounding too forward?
Once you do your visit, you can ask to meet with a financial advisor with your parents and speak with them about it if you're interested
did you go to private or public high
Public with the IB program
where are you
I'm in college at Sewanee in Tennessee :)
