All too often, we complain about how inactive this generation has become. With all the technological options keeping so many occupied, it’s refreshing to still see so many kids at the local baseball field, hockey rink, gymnasium or swimming pool. These parents have done a great thing by keeping their kids active!
Right after sign ups, parents scramble around for the proper equipment… which, of course is necessary to keep them safe. So, we’ve addressed the outside… let’s work to get the inside healthy! It’s a well known fact that athletes require a special diet to fuel their activity. Much like More >
The National Federation of State High School Associations has amended the rules for uniforms:
A. JERSEY COLOR 1. Jerseys shall be of a single, solid color. 2. The jersey shall completely cover the shoulder pads. 3. Jerseys shall be of contrasting colors for opposing teams.

Saturday marks yet another matchup of the U.S. and Canada for a world championship. After a disappointing loss in 2006, Pressler and the Coaching staff believe they have the team that will win it all this year. Question is, do they have what it takes to get it done in 2010?

Effective January 1, 2010, the NCAA rules for men’s lacrosse will include a modified stick head dimension specification, which will require a minimum width dimension of 3″ for the throat of the lacrosse stick head.
In recent years, manufacturers have evolved men’s lacrosse stick head designs within the rules to become narrower.
