Move over football, baseball, and soccer. Lacrosse has been playing in America longer than any of those sports. In fact, it claims to be the oldest team sport in North America; there’s evidence that a version of lacrosse originated in Canada and migrated to America in the 17th century.
Today there are 613 collegiate D-1,2,& 3 men’s and women’s teams in the U.S. At the youth level, the US Lacrosse survey reveals more than 360,000 players on organized teams in 2011, with an increase of 10.9 % over 2010.
Lacrosse is not going anywhere any time soon, and in fact, is attracting more and more kids.
If your child is one of those kids who has discovered the fun of lacrosse, you know the challenge he faces when practicing alone, chasing after balls. That’s when a practice buddy would come in very handy. And in fact, I’ve found one for you. It’s called the Lacrosse Buddy and it will put the fun back into individual practice for your lacrosse player.
The B-Lax Blast Lacrosse Training Aid, a.k.a. the Lacrosse Buddy is a specially molded lacrosse ball that attaches to an elastic cord, that attaches to any lax stick head using an innovative attachement. It was invented and designed to improve confidence, hand-eye coordination, and comfort in ball delivery (the ball leaving the head) and catching.
It attaches to any lacrosse stick head, allowing young girls or boys lacrosse players to practice drills independently.
Two years ago, Lisa Walker, single mother of two young lacrosse players, began coaching her son’s team and went online to look for a lacrosse rebounder. She discovered the the Lacrosse Buddy and decided to try it out.
We live on a hill and constantly chasing balls down the hill is a regular occurance, so I ordered it, says Lisa. She was so pleased with the product that she eventually became a Lacrosse Buddy distributor.
Lisa sells a product that she uses as a coach, that she believes in as a parent, and that she trusts as a lacrosse player herself.
Yes, this is a paid review. But I stand by my promise to only review products that I think will help sports parents and their children have a better experience in youth sports.
