The Men’s Lacrosse Coaches Association is introducing a FREE APP for boys lacrosse players. While geared for high school age recruits, it also benefits junior high players as it provides the IMLCA with player contact information as they communicate camps, clinics, prospect days and other opportunities. The database is a project of the IMLCA Technology Committee and approved by the Board of Directors. With the Players Directory student-athletes can:
Let college coaches know if they are interested in their school
Let coaches know which specific events they'll be attending Provide college coaches with their contact information View College Prospect Days (Premium Only)
*Currently only available for boys lacrosse players
If you haven't already seen it, the following link will take you to a terrific documentary video about the origins, history, growth, and future of both men's and women's lacrosse. It is well worth the fifty-five minutes it runs.
The documentary does, however, omit one fascinating detail. James Naismith, credited with inventing basketball while teaching at Springfield College, was a Canadian and a lacrosse player. Thus, it's not that lacrosse is a lot like basketball ... it's that basketball is a lot like lacrosse.
With a rise in reported concussions in youth sports over the past several years, the CONNY Board is working to educate Program Administrators, coaches, and parents on concussion awareness.
To that end, we have created a "Concussions Resources" page on this website (on the left hand menu). This page is designed to assist your team, town, school, or league in creating a concussion awareness program. The resources available will also help parents and coaches with diagnosis and action when a player gets hit in the head.
Thank you for addressing this highly relevant topic with your program coaches and parents.
