We’ve all said it. “You gotta pick your battles.” Parents say it about raising their kids, teachers say it about classroom management, and coaches are saying it every day at practice.

In the past three weeks, since JV lacrosse practices started back on March 9, I’ve made some conscious decisions to do a few things differently with this team. Call it A) an experiment, B) being practical or realistic, or C) a compromise; it’s probably a little bit of D) “All the above.”

from Lacrosse Magazine
If you follow college sports, you get used to hearing about strength of schedule. It's a staple for tournament selection and seeding, but what about actually getting ready for the tournament? If playing tough competition gets you ready for the NCAA's, then no teams will be better prepared than those that survive the battleground that is the ACC.

from New England Lacrosse Journal
When Boston Cannons general manager Kevin Barney and coach John Tucker decided to move forward with two-time Major League Lacrosse MVP Paul Rabil’s trade request this fall, they were adamant they would need more than just draft picks back in exchange for one of the world’s best and most popular players.

from Lacrosse Magazine
Short-stick defensive midfielders get overlooked. They toil with tough defensive assignments and get picked on constantly. “Dodge the shorty” is the refrain. Most offenses are built to attack this position 20 to 30 times per game. It helps if you’re a good athlete who doesn’t mind the grind or box scores full of zeroes.
