    A question for Joe and the LaxLessons.com Community –
    I’m trying to find a good fall lax program in Westchester or vicinity for my son who will be a HS Junior this year. He played varsity lax last year as a soph and wants to work on his skills during the Fall in a competitive program. Can you suggest some strong Fall programs in the County or vicinity? Thanks.

    WestRock will also be going to two fall tourneys – one at Umass the other at Hofstra.

    Joe – great job tracking all the recruiting. I don’t know how one guy can gather so much info but I’m not suprised. I check the blog even day now even though its supposedly a “dead” time of the year lax wise.
