Last December the Central Iowa Lacrosse Association held its first winter skills camp at the Soccer House on the south side of Des Moines. While the overall turnout was good with around 30 boys in grades 3-9, there was room for improvement. The time slot (8:00-9:00 pm) was less than favorable and the space was […]
The second week of youth lacrosse games is in the books. Sadly we’ve had our second and third forfeits of the season, which is a result of attendance issues. Considering this is a seven-on-seven league and teams have plenty of roster depth, this is a frustrating problem. Junior Division Bayhawks 6, Rattlers 0 National Win, […]
Remember a couple of years ago when I started a series of potential NCAA D1 expansion candidates? One of the candidates that I felt most strongly about – and still feel strongly about – is the University of Southern California. Thanks to a soccer forum, of all things, I came across a link to a […]
Last Thursday marked the first week of this year’s boys’ lacrosse games. Unfortunately it also marked the first forfeit of the season as one team came in a player short to field a full squad. The most difficult aspect of running this program is roster management. For the most part teams are balanced in regard […]

The 2012 season the Central Iowa Lacrosse Association’s Box Lacrosse League came to a close last night. This year’s championship pitted a relative newcomer against a familiar face.
Registration for Valley’s 2013 season is underway. Practices plans and other coach-type stuff is being worked on constantly. And in my “real life” outside of lacrosse, I received some unexpected -but good- news that ate up two of my lunch hours last week. I don’t even remember Friday…
