Lacrosse Magazine: August 2014

by Megan Schneider 


Nike/USL High School Wrap

Final Top 25: Boys | Girls



30 Over 30

Think pro lacrosse is a young man's game? We celebrate the top 30 players over the age of 30, like Denver Outlaws faceoff man Anthony Kelly, 2014 Team USA captain Kevin Leveille and 28 other serious players.
by Brett Amadon, Phil Shore and Neil Stevens 

A Bad Experiment

The game needs to be faster. No need for a scrum after every goal. Too much cheating. Sound familiar? The faceoff has long been a hot topic. In 1979, the NCAA eliminated it, but the move lasted just one season.
by Corey McLaughlin 


From the Editor: More Than A Game
His Space: Evan's Essence


World-class athlete Michael Warrdian has lacrosse in his heart, having gone from the fields of Michigan State University to the slightly longer path of ultra-marathons.

Your Edge
Loyola and Charlotte Hounds attackman Justin Ward shows off his power moves, while Mikaela Rix shares tips on the draw control that helped lead her and Boston College to the NCAA quarterfinals. Shane Rye keeps you playing this summer and Charlie Obermayer calls all stripes.

Give and Go
Chazz Woodson is an electrifying talent and strong motivator. He wants to leave a mark on the game of lacrosse besides his already prodigious highlight reel.

How to Receive Lacrosse Magazine (Subscriptions)

Now in its 35th year, Lacrosse Magazine is available only to members of US Lacrosse as one of the many benefits of membership. Membership dues help US Lacrosse fuel the growth of the game nationwide. Join US Lacrosse today to start your subscription to Lacrosse Magazine.

Non-youth members receive all issues of the magazine. Youth members (age 14 and under) currently receive the February, March, April, May, July and October issues, but have the option to upgrade to all issues with their membership.

New members must join at least one month prior to an issue month in order to receive the next issue. For example, to receive the July issue, a member must join US Lacrosse before the address file is pulled from the database by June 1.

When quantities permit, additional copies or back issues of Lacrosse Magazine can be purchased through US Lacrosse. The cost of each issue is $5 for members and $6 for non-members, inclusive of postage. To inquire about quantities, please e-mail info@uslacrosse.org.

Some members have noticed that the address label on the magazine is now being printed upside down. This is not a printing error. This is a new requirement from the USPS for periodicals using co-mail (which we do). The only way to print addresses right-side up would be to move them to the back cover, which we do not favor doing at this time.
