Shootout for Soldiers from Raleigh/Durham wrote on November 30, 2017 at 7:53 pm:
NC Lacrosse Teams of all ages, we are once again trying to bring Shootout for Soldiers to NC.

If are selected we would try hosting at Duke as one of the charities they support was started because of a Duke Alumni killed in Iraq.

We will need the support of the triangle and NC to make this event a huge success. This is a charity event that raises money for military veterans.

If you have questions feel free to email me at Michael.john.smith125@gmail.com for more information and if selected you would want to be part of the committee.

I am hoping that this will be our year and we can make this a huge success.

Focus on the individual coaching and the overall teams success. If your kids goal is to play in college you want to be on the best team playing in the best tournaments. This helps get exposure for your kid. If your kid is younger you want to place him with great coaches as well as a great team that is competitive with one another to help develop their skills. Being from the Charlotte area Team Carolina does a great job of coaching and exposing your kids to college coaches and developing player.

When evaluating different travel teams, should parents focus more on the individual coach of their child's team or the character of the overall organization and its owner?

Any place to get honest reviews of lacrosse gear? All the websites I see offering reviews of gear are selling that gear and are obviously trying to sell the stuff they are reviewing because every review tells how great everything is.

We had a good time at the beach again this year. Great weather, fun tournament. Lake Norman, Middle Creek, Cardinal Gibbons (missing some big guns on defense) all look good. LN won the championship beating MC. It is exactly what you would expect from fall ball. Some really good plays and some sloppy plays. I would not be shocked to see MC and LN play in another State championship game this year. Obviously, many teams missing some players in fall sports. Regardless, it is always a fun event.

With some fall ball taking place who is looking good? Usual suspects? Any surprises? Favorites for each group east/west?

There is an open coaching spot for Christ The King Catholic High School in Huntersville, NC. Located near Charlotte, the schools address is 2011 Crusader Way Huntersville NC 28078. The team is very young, having graduated no seniors last year and having strong athleticism from Sophomore Captain LSM Jimmy Edmiston, a 4 sport athlete, and Freshman Shortsticks with talent and drive. Competing in the NCISAA 2 conference, the crusaders will return with more experience and strong athleticism.
