To the Men: Keys To the Women’s Game

mixed

In Bcn we play mixed lacrosse rules, mostly based on the women’s rules with extra add-ons. Until most of our guys have full gear to play men’s lacrosse, it will stay this way. Men can take tons of learning from this opportunity. Here’s why:

  • women’s game is based on skill & speed, which is excellent for players to hone their skills without the physical brutality of the men’s game added to the mix. The hitting & the rough contact comes naturally when the men’s game gets introduced, skills are taught & crafted and more difficult to learn
  • In the women’s game, defending a player means using your feet and your brains to prevent penetration – position defense, the ideal way for defending with minimal risk, maximum result — this applies to the men’s game also, watch the best players, you will see it. Get in between the attacker and the goal, have your sticks up, 2-hands on the stick, and let your feet do the work ou commander cialis.
  • it’s all about cutting & quick-stick to score in women’s, if you can translate this into the men’s game, you will be a stud scorer

And please, let the women pick the ball up before tackling her from behind—ahem! this is a penalty—better to move your feet and play position defense. Our time with the mixed game may be limited once we reach our goal of getting our all our kits ready by this December, let’s make the most of it and save the aggression for the men’s games. We have Bea who joins us from Roma lacrosse who can help us adhere to the rules, listen and support Aina & Bea on that please— it’s safer for all. Thanks

Hola laxers!

con la llegada del verano muchos de vosotros estaréis disfrutando del mar y de unos pocos pases en la arena mientras llega el camarero con bebidas refrescantes en el chiringuito de la playa. Por mi parte, los meses de verano supone volver a mi tierra de origen, Ibiza, dónde sigo practicando lacrosse con mi escuela de verano que organiza el Ajuntament de Sant Antoni de Portmany. Que puedo deciros de Ibiza? Pues que tenemos un gran clima, buenas playas y mucha mucha alegría!

Durante los meses de julio y agosto, los participantes de la escuela pueden aprender los primeros pasos de éste maravilloso deporte que cada vez es más conocido. Además, en el centro se explica la historia, la cultura o el cuidado de un stick. Quizás, lo que más me sorprende es que durante los patios algunos de ellos practican ”wall ball” conmigo o lanzamiento en sus pequeñas porterías con la ilusión con la que les enseño el cradle o los face offs. Sólo puedo decir que me llena de orgullo disfrutar cada instante con ellos y espero, que si es posible, un día algunos de ellos juegue a lacrosse como todos los que amamos éste deporte.

Hello laxers!
With the Summer’s arrival many of you are enjoying the sea and you will make a few passes on the sand meanwhile the waitress is arriving with cold drinks on the chiringuito. For me, Summer means come back to my homeland, Ibiza, where I keep practicing lacrosse with Summer’s school which are settle up by the City Hall of Sant Antoni de Portmany. What I can tell you about Ibiza? Well we have a great climate, good beaches and a lot lot of happiness!.

During the months of July and August, participants can learn first steps of this wonderful sport that is increasingly known. Perhaps what surprises me more is that during the break some of them play wall ball or shoot towards the small goals with the illusion that I usually teach them to cradle or to make some face offs. I can only say that I am proud to enjoy every moment with them and I hope, if it is possible, one day many of them play lacrosse in a good team.
Sticks up and sand!!
