2017-Aug-10: Cinci Summer Box Lax Championship Game
I hope to see you at 6:30 PM, Aug 13, 9805 Union Cemetary Rd., Loveland, OH. The competition is more level this year than I have ever seen so predicting Loveland versus Traditional is speculation...even Rhinegeist might make it. After the game we will talk about how the Fall will look. Some have said they want to play field once a week in Sycamore on the HS turf. Others want to go back to SportsPlus for indoor box.
We've now got a Instagram feed CincinnatiLax1 to add to the list (at bottom of this page https://www.instagram.com/cincinnatilax1/
2017-May-27: Hayfield Classic Details
1. Box Lax tomorrow will be at 7 pm at sports plus . see you there
2. Hayfield classic
RSVP for Hayfield Classic
2017-May-29: Summer Box Detials
The outdoor box at Loveland is officially open. 9805 Union Cemetery Rd, Loveland.
Grass is cut, off season cages are in place. No creases tho until league play starts.
Improvements to the box this year:
New (to us) nets (June). These are former NHL nets (used one season), and used they are about $2K. They are barely used. Maybe a little bit of blood.
Scorekeeper platform built on bench side so clock op/scorekeep will now be on bench side
Left side bench door has been reversed so it opens the proper way now
Both shot clock stands rebuilt
When you guys start playing pick-up I will get the communal goalie gear in the storage bins. Just let me know.
Mens league play starts July 11 and runs through Aug 11 with Final Four and Championship on Aug 13 Sunday.
Games will be Tues, Thurs, Fri nights 6:45 and 7:45. At least 1 game per week with no more than 2 games per week.
I expect all 8 teams to return this year but if you are interested in putting in a team, let me know asap.
Team fees will not be going up this year despite improvements to the arena.
It's a team fee not a individual player fee.
You can have as many guys are you want on your roster; I don't care how many guys you collect from, I just need the one
team fee. The rest is yours to keep. Remember tho, guys have to be on your roster and play in 1 reg season game for your team to play in the playoffs.
Can't be on multiple rosters. And you can only play for one team come playoff time, so if you are on a team and you lose in the semi's, you can't jump on one of the
2 teams playing in the champ.
Other than that, there are pretty much no other rules. Just play box. In the summer. Outdoors.
Does it get any better than that?

Slowbreakers News: planning on attending a tourney in Toledo next month.
Cinci Mens News: planning the schedule for the spring.
The Slowbreakers got off to a shaky start with a close loss to Toledo, but then went on a two game win win streak over Pitt and Detroit. The Ball Hogs and Old Dogs clubs from Columbus took the next two from the Slowbreakers.
Our next tourney is March 7th at BlackEye tourney in C'bus. Hopefully we'll get some indoor pickup going over the winter, but I haven't heard anything yet.
Blackey Lax Facebook Page
The Second annual Dayton Classic will be on September 28th at the West Carrolton Soccer Complex in West Carrolton, Ohio.
All proceeds from this tournament will be donated to the USO. The decision to support the USO instead of Wounded Warrior was made based on feedback from several Eagles players. They are currently or have served in the military and recommended the USO over Wounded Warrior. If you have questions about this contact me at your convenience.
The address is:
545 North Elm Street
West Carrollton, OH 45449
Face-off for the first set of games will be at 11am. We will play two 20 min halves with 5 minute half time and 15min in between games.
Toledo has checked in with their count as far as number of players goes and they are short.
I need a final count from the Ball Hawgs, the Slowbreakers, and Cleveland.
Plan on fielding full teams. We will support teams that are short on the day.
We will be using two certified refs per field. They will be accompanied by staffers at each field to track stats, scores, and communicate with the command tent.
Tournament rules will allow for 8 under 35 players per team. We will play no take out hits. Man ball is okay but do not level anybody. Just as last year ~ a full on take out hit and disrespect toward the ref will result in expulsion from the field.
Game 1 - 11am
Field 1 - Eagles vs Slowbreakers
Field 2 - Ball Hawgs vs Toledo Alliance
Game 2 - 12 noon
Field 1 - Eagles vs Ball Hawgs
Field 2 - Slowbreakers vs Cleveland Alliance
Game 3 - 1pm
Field 1 - Cleveland Alliance vs Toledo Alliance
Field 2 - Slowbreakers vs Ball Hawgs
Game 4 - 2pm
Field 1 - Eagles vs Cleveland Alliance
Field 2 - Toledo Alliance vs Slowbreakers
Game 5 - 3pm

The Derby City tourny in Louisville is Saturday Oct. 4th. It is at a different location. See below for field location and info for post party and hotel information. It is a pretty good time for those that stay down for the night.
LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE IN
We need to start getting an idea of who is coming in case we need to find some more legs. Last year we combined with Cleveland to win it all and with enough legs we could easily do so again.

We had a decent showing at Sycamore tonight, but we need more guys and goalies!! We had the full artificial turf which was nice. Perfect for 4x4, 5x5 or 6x6 and then Silver Spring House for beers. First round is on me.
Put it on your calendar! Pick up lax Sundays from 6-8 pm at Sycamore High School. Tell a buddy, bring a friend!
Loveland's outdoor box is going back up on Thursday. It's all hands on deck to get it back up and a few of you had told me to let you all know when in case you could come help. Once it's up,
we'll get open pick up going on Wed nights 7pm.
Men's league will start mid July and if you are interested in putting a team in let me know ASAP. Also, any of you guys interested in getting certified as a box coach or box ref, let me know. USBOXLA is coming to town July 12 to do a free certification clinic and I could use the extra coaches for the youth league goes Sunday nights starting July 13. thx
9085 Union Cemetery Rd . 6 pm
Hey guys a friend of mine is coming into town for the Nike Camp 6/29-7/2. I don't know much in terms of details but feel free to get a hold of Steve if you are interested.
Xcelerate Nike Lacrosse is in need of experienced boys' lacrosse DPole coach as well as current collegiate players to work at our Cincinnati summer lacrosse camp, June 29- July 2. Please e-mail if interested. Salary: TBD

Starting this Sunday we will have pick up lax at the Sycamore High School. Every Sunday 6pm till 8 pm.
Spread the word.
sorry for the confusion,
Need hands on Thursday night 6pm to reconstruct the box as it's being awaken from it's long winter's nap to get ready for another fun summer of legal slashes, uncalled for pushes from behind and the always popular blind side cross checks.
After that, the box will be open for men's pick up games on Wed nights. The official men's league will start mid july. Got to be on a team for that and most of you guys who are planning on playing in the leagu already are. If not and want to play, call me and I'll connect you with the right guys who are running a team.
After many beers, the guys at the Hayfield Classic thought it was time to resurrect this site. They nominated me to keep it up to date. Its not that tough, but I expect somebody to buy me a beer.
PS. three years since my last post...LOL.
Hope all is well. Syracuse coaches and players are coming down this summer to do a camp at Moeller H.S. that will most likely turn into a yearly event. Below is info. Please forward it out to your teams.

We will be car pooling up to indy, I know I am going sunday morning, but there will be people going saturday as well. More details will be coming later in the week on this.

I have attached and included below the final version of the schedule. A few things about the schedule:
-We have two very important away game weekends, 5/14-15 and 6/5. Both are Cleveland trips. The first are all games vs. Chicago teams and the second one is our required Cleveland game and another vs Motor City. These 2 weekends account for over half of our games and could provide us a lot of points for the league scoring system. Do what you can to make them.
-As far as the scoring for the league is concerned the "Ohio Division" games are the most important. So if we beat all the teams in our Divison we automatically get a BID to the tournament.
-Again let me know if there are any major conflicts with any of the weekends, its not too late to change games but its getting there.
Any new recruits intown? Get them out to the games, we had a few guys "retire" and a few others move away. We could use a few more guys on the roster.
The team will be hosting a happy hour in the upcoming weeks so watch for that message.
Guys: I now have the official invites in for the VAIL 2011 Tournament. They have lowered the MASTERS division minimum age down to age 30. You must turn 30 by the end of 2011. Game dates for the Masters are June 25, 26, 27. SuperMasters (Ages 40+), June 25-28.
I am interested in fielding a MASTERS division team for sure this year. Anyone interested please respond ASAP. I have a sponsor in the local village, and I plan to cover the tournament fee myself if I get a decent response. I have to respond initially by FEB 15 so please give this some thought and let me know if you would like to play in Vail this summer. Send me name, age, position and college you are alumni of. Whether I get a team or not I am for sure going since I will be playing again for Air Force in the SuperMasters. Anyone age 40+ on the club who wants to play in Vail can play for both my AF team and the Masters team since over 30 guys are allowed to play in the Masters. Only problem there would be the possibility of overlapping game times since both divisions play at the same time. I have attached some initial info sent to me by the Vail committee.
I might also try to field an ELITE division, (all ages), team this summer as well...so any of you guys interested in playing in the Vail ELITE division, also let me know. The ELITES play June 30th - July 4th. MJ

Subject: Fundraiser for 2 Severely Injured Lacrosse Players ~ Dec 29 4-6pm Field Sports, Dublin
Date: Tuesday, December 14, 2010, 3:34 PM
I would very much appreciate if you could spread the word about the fundraiser for these two young Dublin Jerome lacrosse players. I have attached a document which details the fundraiser. The more PR we can get surrounding this story, the more donations we can direct towards these families in need.
Mark Burkholder is a sophomore for Dublin Jerome High School. As you will read, he suffered a major head injury late in the summer. He is battling through this very near-death experience and is now faced with relearning everything (walking, talking, eating, etc.).
Ian Burkhart is a 2009 grad who played goalie at Dublin Jerome. Ian suffered a spinal injury on June 13 that has left him paralyzed. He currently only has basic arm movement (no movement of his wrists or hands) and no movement from his chest down. His first year non-covered medical expenses will approach $500,000.
Both boys represented themselves and the game of lacrosse with the highest esteem.
"Shots for Mark & Ian" will be held at Field Sports in Dublin on Wednesday, December 29th from 4-6pm.
Many thanks to Field Sports for squeezing us in to provide complimentary field space during this busy time over winter break. Warrior and Brine lacrosse have donated a bunch of great items as prizes for the fastest shots in each division.
It would be great to have all lacrosse supporters, particularly current and former Central Ohio players, come out to support the cause.
Please pass this message to those in the lacrosse community as this is a great opportunity for us to come together to support two players in need.
Dublin Jerome Lacrosse
Hope all is well. If anyone is interested there is a FREE LACROSSE
CLINIC at Moeller H.S. this Saturday from 3PM - 4:30PM. Johnny
Christmas is flying in and will be running the clinic. Read up on him
at Cincinnati Elite Lacrosse.
Please stop by if you can and let your lacrosse communities know about
this. We are also having a "Meet and Greet" with Johnny Christmas after
at Hahana Beach in Mariemont from 6PM - 8PM.
This will be the first and last email to the "Men's Club" email list
that I send out.
We showed up a little thin, 13 or so but still pulled out the win. We held the lead most of the game but they were able to tie it up at the end of the fourth. I bet Dan set that up so he could put in the winning goal in with seconds to spare. I think the final was 11-10 good guys. Start running now for the Oct 30th tournament. We need to own this tournament this year and we are looking at making it bigger, better, with more games. Lets see everyone hit the pavement a couple times a week from here on out
Good morning SB's! Little stiff today? I watched Tom McDonald unfold himself and cramp up before he could get into his car after our drive back from the 'ville. Good Times! Anyway, as Andy pointed out we came home with a W! Defense was solid and goal keeping was 'el fuego! Kurt came up with a couple of Tillman Johnson like saves at the end of the game coupled with some smothering defense to set up Fisher's game winner with about 15-20 seconds left. Though we were short, everyone's effort to keep SB's in the game was 100%. I will try to set up a warm up possibly the weekend of 10/23 to get us set up the 30th. Clear you calendars for the 30th and lets get a team on the field that can win our own Tourny. We definitely have 6 teams and we may end up with 8. More to follow....
Just a quick recap of last weekends Columbus trip. First, thanks to the guys who made the trip, a little thin but not too bad for Summer vaca. season etc...We ended up coming up a little short against the Old Dogs, final score 10-7. We played well through the first half tied at 4-4. Defense and Goalkeeping was solid and thanks to Dan Fisher we kept it close (4 or 5 g?). It was HOT and I think we ran out of gas at the end. Though we discussed playing a second shorter game, the Old Dogs had "refreshments" and their mind and called it a day. In post game analysis/beers/cookout provided by the Old Dogs they had a great time and look forward to playing us again and offered to come travel to Cinci for a rematch. I am shooting for September. Also, we are ramping up for the Second Annual Halloween Classic and are looking for a suitable location for October.
That's all for now.
PS. Thanks to the Dayton guys who traveled up to Columbus to help out
Hello my name is Ken i am with Cougar Lacrosse up in Trenton, Ohio we are in need of a Head Coach. We are a High School Boys Club Team if you can maybe help us out by posting or by word of mouth it will be appreciated.

We played Pittsburgh on Sunday. We traveled with 12 guys, though this time our low numbers didn't matter. We won 15-10. Nice game to all those that made it.
Next games will be the tournament, June 26-27, in Detroit. I'm pretty confident we will qualify based on the new point system but the official word should be in from the league by the end of the week. The tourney is double elimination, with anywhere from 8-10 teams. Games will start early Saturday (9-10amish) and the championships are on Sunday and there is a tournament party on Saturday night.
Assuming we qualify we need to do a little planning. First I need to know who can go? Then we can figure out hotels and other travel plans like renting vans (if there is interest). We will probably need to travel up on Friday evening due to early game unless people want to leave at really early Saturday (6/26).
I don't want to waste my time planning if we don't have enough guys to make a decent showing or run at the tourney. After we get a good sense of who's in and out we can go from there. Based on the talent we have if we roll with a good team we could win it, because this is a travel/away game for everyone. SO EMAIL ME IF YOU CAN MAKE IT.
We ended up 1-1. We handled Louisville in the second game, the first game didn't go as well. We lost to Cleveland 12-16. Overall the game went well we traded goals most of the game but couldn't pull away. We just had a major break down in the 3rd quarter, they scored 4 unanswered goals. We could have used a few more bodies, they traveled and had double the subs we had. Thanks to everyone who made it.
We are off this coming weekend for the Holiday. Next games will be 6/6 in Pittsburgh. We need to travel with a good squad. Pittsburgh has really improved over the last few years. If we take enough guys we have the option to play 2 games, but I'm not going to arrange for 2 games if we only roll with less 16-17 .
Start planning now if you're going. I know a few guys are planning to travel up Saturday and explore the night life. Reply to all if you are interested in going up early and then coordinate with each other. I am going to need to leave the morning of, which will be early, 7 am ish. Let me know if you are going.
I'll send out more details next week.
We had a good win vs. Columbus. We went into overtime, but won 12-11. This is the first time we beat them in about 5 years. I guess the planets were in the correct alignment or maybe it was all the young guys showing and contributing. Great turnout we actually had more subs than Columbus. Good to see the extra recruiting effort. Thanks to everyone that made it.
Next Sunday 5/23 we are playing Cleveland, which is an important league game, and Louisville which is just an extra game. The schedule is as follows:
Game #1- 12:00 Cincy vs. Cleveland
Game #2 - 1:30 Cleveland vs. Louisville
Game #3 - 3:00 Cincy vs. Louisville.
The times for game #2 and #3 are estimates, we will just be playing one game after the other with short breaks in between. These games will be at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy.
Email or call me with questions. See you Sunday.
