Good Book for Parents of Starting Lacrosse Players Feb 10, 2007
Both of my two sons play lacrosse and have been for 8 years. I was terrified one of them would be injured during the early years. I thought at the time I would have rather my chilld play football. My fear was unfounded and had I had a book like this to guide me through the sport, I would have enjoyed those first few years more. Now my oldest son is playing adult club lacrosse and the youngest is in his second year of high school. Eight years later, I am still learning many of the technical rules but understand that the game is really very disciplined and focused when played correctly. About the only thing this book doesn't really tell you is how to get the smell out of shoulder and elbow pads, etc. that get worn from October through May!
Great sport, great book. Jan 19, 2007
Lacrosse is a great sport and this is a great book for parents. I only wish it was written sooner, as my sons are nearing the end of their lacrosse "careers." The book covers a wide range of topics and provides a wealth of information for parents about this exciting game and how to help their kids participate in this rapidly-growing sport. My sons and several of their teammates have remarked that the best thing about their school is the lacrosse team. I also saw recently that a NASA astronaut chose to bring his Navy lacrosse jersey as one of the three personal items he could take to space, because the experience of playing lacrosse meant that much to him. This book can be a valuable guide for parents for understanding the "culture" of lacrosse and introducing it successfully to their children.
