Wishing everyone the very best…

Posted by Barry Marenberg on December 23, 2011

As the year comes to an end, I wanted to take the time to wish all my players, their families, all my lax friends and colleagues a very joyous holiday and a happy new year.  I hope everyone gets everything they wish for.

I plan to return fresh in January and post much more regularly.  Spring lax starts in just under 2 months!!  Players: start getting in shape and keep a stick in your hands.

Best to everyone!

Lacrosse and Physics (Tricks)

Posted by Barry Marenberg on December 20, 2011

Normally I don’t advocate all the stick tricks that the players are so fond of doing after practices and when throwing around in the off-season.  Nevertheless, I do concede that there are some benefits to some of the stick tricks, e.g., hand-eye coordination.  A fellow coach alerted me to the video below.  Its kind of funny and though there aren’t really many lacrosse skills in the tricks, I will say that the player in the video seems to have a nice command of the principles of physics and is also incredibly lucky!
