Lacrosse – Anything & Everything – What else is there?

Lacrosse on TV – Watching is a great learning opportunity!

Posted by Barry Marenberg on January 26, 2010

In addition to practicing and playing, a great way to learn the sport of lacrosse is by watching top-notch teams and players.  I highly recommend all players watch as much lacrosse – either live or on TV – as possible.   If you have Verizon FiOS as your cable tv provider you should have access to the ESPNU channel. 

ESPNU and US Lacrosse announced today (1/26/10) that the sports network will air the U.S. men’s national lacrosse team vs. Duke, and the U.S. women’s national team vs. Duke games, part of the 2010 Champion Challenge at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.  The U.S. men’s national team game will air on Jan. 31 (this coming Sunday) at 10 p.m. with an encore presentation on Feb. 2 at 4 p.m.  The U.S. women’s national team game will air on Feb. 1 at 12 a.m. with a re-air on Feb. 2 at 2 p.m.

Additionally, ESPNU recently announced that the network will lead ESPN’s college lacrosse coverage with more games than ever before in 2010, including 40 men’s and women’s regular-season contests combined, in addition to one live game each on ESPN2 and ESPN360.com.  The networks will televise 59 games overall, including the two Champion Challenge games, 42 regular-season contests (up from 30 in 2009) and 15 NCAA Tournament games across ESPNU, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN360.com.  A complete list of the television schedule of games can be accessed from this blog via the page listed at the top of this blog entitled “ESPNU 2010 NCAA Lax TV Schedule”.

Try to have your boys watch as many games as possible.  This will allow them to learn and to bring questions to practice, etc.
