Getting a new stick in the mail is an awesome experience for any player. We want to make that moment even more special.
A fun way to spread the word about Powell Lacrosse. Plus, who doesn’t love free stickers?
A wooden shaft was once a tree and before that a seed. It was alive and lived a life.
We know buying lacrosse equipment is a major investment. This is why we aim to design the most reliable products in the market, test them until we’re blue in the face and back it all up with an industry leading 12 month warranty.
In the heat of the moment your feet produce more sweat than pretty much anywhere else on your body. Sports socks were invented to help carry moisture off the skin so it can release through evaporation. Wool socks were invented to prevent frostbite. And argyle socks were made for nerds and Payne Stewart.
There is 125 miles of northwest flowing deep blackwater that tears through the Northern New York landscape. Starting in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, the Black River, gets its name from the natural tannic acids that turn the water a deep shade of black.
Is there anything more beautiful than watching a perfectly executed fast break? A blend of spontaneity and calculation, a fast break from inception to completion is an absolute work of art. As soon as the outlet pass hits a streaking stick you can feel the anticipation and energy build on the field and in the stands. The crowd knows something spectacular is about to unfold before their eyes — the crescendo begins.
What do you do in January when you love lacrosse and live in Upstate NY? The answer — you call your buddies, put on your hunting gear and venture out into the snow. This past Thursday marked the date of the first annual Great Upstate Snow Game. This game was all about good people, fun and laughs.
We had an amazing time this past weekend at the 10th annual Cornfield Classic lacrosse tournament in Tully, NY. As our trucks and trailers came over the rolling upstate countryside littered with dairy cows and soaring silos we were welcomed to town by an old school sign that read “Lacrosse Families Welcome”.
We wandered into our Parent’s garage last week and stumbled upon a group of heads covered in spiderwebs and mouse droppings. They were tied together in a loop like a giant set of janitor keys. As we started flipping through them we couldn’t contain our laughter. We must of sat there and laughed at these things for an hour. These were some of the ugliest heads one could ever imagine. Most were broken, some were painted and all were ugly…
Our backyard was a place where we dreamed, played and peeled back the beautiful layers of lacrosse. Adjacent to our PVC goal was our Dad’s wood shop. It was in this 15 x 15 area where we would paint, dye and fine tune our lacrosse sticks day after day.
There’s nothing more beautiful than a perfectly executed fast break. It all starts with a big time goalie play where he drops to a split and makes an off hip save on the doorstep. He immediately jumps to his feet and finds a streaking defenseman charging up field. The defenseman only has the ball in his stick for two steps and then sends a pass just beyond the mid stripe that finds a goal-bound middie perfectly in stride headed for…
As the pioneers of the 18th century cut trails and explored North America they marked paths with blazes, markings that follow each other at certain distances to mark the direction of a trail. Originally, a tree would be blazed by hatchet chops but the practice evolved into using orange blazes nailed or painted to a tree. Lacrosse has given us the opportunity to travel all over the world as both players and ambassadors and most recently as lacrosse manufacturers. We…
There’s a big difference between superstition and ritual. Superstition deals with the element of luck. Ritual, on the other hand, is rooted in preparation. Eye black to me is part of the ceremony and a reminder that it’s time to flip the switch.
Over the past 15 years of my life, I have traveled across the country working with thousands of lacrosse players of all ages and playing abilities. My message to them has always remained the same; I stand in front of these players and tell them “ You don’t need to be the fastest, the quickest, the strongest or the biggest to be a successful lacrosse player. In my experience there are two key factors that have allowed me to be…
August 10th marked the culmination of two years of hard work with the launch of powelllacrosse.com. We crossed our fingers, rubbed our lucky rabbits foot, and patted RP’s belly for good luck. What happened next was incredible. We could not have predicted the overwhelming response we’ve had to date. It has truly been an experience that we will never forget. The response has been great – we’ve received countless emails, letters, phone calls, and social media shoutouts. Everyone has been…
