With college lacrosse in Idaho well underway, high school try-outs beginning today, and youth next week, there is no better time to come out and enjoy a weekend packed with lacrosse. Next weekend, March 1st-3rd, two top 10 MCLA teams will be coming to town for a three-game weekend on the blue, followed by a Pro Skills Clinic right next door.
Friday night, Boise State University will take on the #5 University of Colorado at 4 PM. Saturday, Colorado will take on the #8 University of Oregon in a top 10 showdown at 1 PM. Finally, on Sunday, Boise State will cap off the weekend with a game against Oregon at 2 PM. All games will be played at Bronco Stadium, you can see the full schedule of games at MCLA.us.
Ticket prices are $5 per adult per game, $3 per kid per game and students are free. You can also purchase weekend passes for $10 for adults and $6 for kids.
Following Friday night’s game, Malcolm Chase of Around the World Lacrosse will be coming to down with MLL players Justin Smith (New York Lizards), Owen Smith (Boston Cannons), and Jeremy Sieverts (Denver Outlaws).
They will be conducting a Pro Player Skills Tune-up for players from the 5th to the 12th grade from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the Caven Indoor Facility. This is a great opportunity to get some extra practice in and learn some excellent advice from some of the brightest minds in the game.
The focus for this clinic will be kept primarily on stick skills and footwork – both essentials for becoming a great player.
– Wall Ball Drills
– Ground Ball Technique
– Takeaway Checks
– Set-up and Execution
– Transition Offense & Defense
– Positional Work
– Special Situations
Malcolm told me that they are also offering a team discount for teams that have more than 10 guys sign-up, nothing wrong with a good deal! Once the players clinic is finished, there will be a Coaches X’s and O’s discussion to follow.

Come out and enjoy a weekend full of great lacrosse! We’ll see you there!
