Wall ball is great, but sometimes shooting practice is a necessity. Chances are you don’t live right near a field, so it may be hard to find a 6×6 in walking distance. If you don’t have a big yard, don’t worry. Work on your aim, close range precision. Or, you could risk it and use your house as a backstop. Either way, our friends over at Lacrosse Scoop have put together a very useful Goal Buying Guide for all your needs. Shop with ease, and find your goal within minutes.
Inside Lacrosse- Cascade Lacrosse has reached an agreement with the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) on a solution for the recently decertified Cascade R helmet. The solution will involve a simple modification to Cascade R helmets currently in the marketplace. NOCSAE has accepted the solution. The modification will be free of charge for consumers and retailers, including shipping.
Finally, an answer has come. Cascade has announced a fix for the recent problem with the R. We have avoided covering the topic due to lots of speculation, and not many facts. By using their parented PoronXRD technology, Cascade has created a simple solution making their helmets even safer. Cascade will provide free shipping to and from their factory, so the fix comes at no cost to players. Estimated wait time is two weeks. More info on Cascade’s website.

Really a great watch, and helps you realize the importance of lacrosse to the Iroquois. Stay tuned for Episode 3, which should be coming out soon.
This past week I reached out to Sayre from Ten Minute Traditional, and got my hands on a piece of their traditional “mesh” to review. It was shipped priority and got here quickly, even during the busy holiday week. The box’s contents were pretty self-explanatory, with all the string necessary to complete the pocket and a link to the full set of tutorials online. I loaded up the videos and, although I do have a good amount of experience with stringing, breezed through the installation. Anyone with internet access could easily put this pocket together, with little adjustment necessary. Advertised as a ten-minute process, my total time was 10:31. Needless to say, the name is accurate. Continue reading to see my review of the product itself.
