The United States Navy’s Sea, Air, and Land Teams are comprised of athletes who are a part of the special operations force, Naval Special Warfare Command, and SOCOM. In other words, they are badass mofos who can squash your head with their pinky. Yet, it seems like they have a shortage of recruits, so they want more lacrosse players to inquire within.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
