Warrior Krypto Pro

The Original Krypto Pro

The Krypto Pro handle was originally released as a high-end version of their most popular handle of all time, the Kryptolyte. As Warrior became official equipment sponsor of the Major League Lacrosse the Krypto Pro was designed to be a lighter, stronger shaft to be able to handle professional use. The original Krypto Pro featured basic graphics with the Warrior logo and Krypto Pro name. Over the years just like any industry there are trends that come into play that come and go. Within the lacrosse market we have seen the emergence of bright neon color schemes and over the top graphics.


Inside Shooting Tips

We recently had the opportunity to spend an afternoon in one of our stores with lacrosse pro Joe Walters. Joe is a 4-time NCAA All-American and also plays in the MLL and NLL. To say he’s highly accomplished as a lacrosse player is an epic understatement of gigantic proportions. In addition to playing, Joe also works with Maverik Lacrosse and is an avid user of their gear.

Gear aside, though, we wanted to chat with Joe about tips to help the aspiring lacrosse player practice and become, well, more like Joe. So we whipped out the lacrosse goal and decided to hear from the pro himself on some inside shooting tips and what he does around the net to maximize his shooting opportunities.

Joe discusses a time during his freshman year at Maryland, watching game film after a particular weekend playing against Navy. He noticed that he had a lot of shots in close, but had only converted on a couple of goals. In reviewing the film, he felt as if he should have scored on some of the shots that he perceived as easy.

This is where excellent lacrosse coaching comes into play. The Maryland coach at the time taught his players to not fade away or fade behind the net when shooting in close. The only thing that will do is decrease your angle and lessen your options. The correct move is to step above the goal line with your stick in tight to your chest. Now you have options – far pipe, short side, high, low – because the goalie has to stop off the pipe.

When Joe started doing this, success followed. Just have a look at where some good coaching got Joe!

Should Lacrosse be an Olympic Sport?

Lacrosse in the Olympic Games? It might be closer than you think…

Reasons Why Lacrosse Should be an Olympic Sport

The 2016 Summer Olympic Games will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – that’s not up for debate. But what was recently up for debate regarding the upcoming 2016 games were two sports that needed to be added to meet the standard 28-event requirement. Up for consideration by the IOC (International Olympic Committee) were rugby, baseball, squash and roller sports, among others. The eventual winners wound up being golf and rugby.

We get that the IOC has requirements to meet when it comes to sports, but here’s a question: Why not add lacrosse to the summer games docket? Here’s a list of reasons to make lacrosse be an Olympic sport, as well as some information on when that possibility may become reality:

4 Lacrosse Teams That Count On Loyal Fans

Most Loyal Lacrosse Fans

Johns Hopkins Players Celebrate In Front of Their Loyal Fans

You don’t hear too much about lacrosse fans, and that’s OK with them.

After all, it’s the more visible, more prominent and more vocal fans of a particular sport that seem to attract the attention, but not always in a good way.

Even the craziest lacrosse fan doesn’t come close to a violently loyal soccer hooligan, or football fans who show up to chilly game days clad only in body paint.

On the other hand, lacrosse fans aren’t sticks-in-the-mud either who silently stand like they were at a golf tournament. True lacrosse fans are boisterous without resorting to being obnoxious, supportive without screaming (much) at opponents, and more importantly faithful, whether “their” team is having a great year or continuing a general slump which begun generations ago.

The following examples could provide insight to what it takes to become super lacrosse fans:
