Lacrosse – Anything & Everything – What else is there?

Lax Continues to Grow (plus BBL tryout info)

Posted by Barry Marenberg on September 28, 2011

The Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association has released its extensive study on team sports in America.  The most noteworthy piece of info (but which we all already know) was the following:

Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in America. There were 1.6 million people who played lacrosse last year, a 37.7 jump. Lacrosse participation is up 218.1 percent over the last 10 years.”

Nice to see the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association is (finally?) realizing this.

Also, in supplementing my post of September 25th (below) with regard to tryout dates/times for Summer 2012 lax teams for Chiefs/Full Force players, BBL has announced its tryout info (all tryouts in the Copper Springs bubble:

6th Grade tryouts: 10/20 – 7:30-9:30pm
7th Grade tryouts: 10/23 – 7:30-9:30pm
8th Grade tryouts: 10/23 – 5:00-7:00pm

Once again, good luck to all at their tryouts.
