Quincy, MA (June 17, 2014) – TheLocker, lacrosse’s first social media community and e-commerce platform is facing-off with FOGOLax Academy to find the nation’s top FOGO.

Starting now and running through the club season ending August 1st, TheLocker members ages 13-18 have the unique opportunity to win a visit from FOGOLax Academy, the sport’s premier specialty instruction school and to win the title of nation’s best FOGO. Eligible Locker member club players are encouraged to upload face-off statistics to their Locker profiles and the member with the top face-off win percentage will receive a free visit and one-on-one training from FOGOLax Academy in addition to winning FOGOLax Academy Founder, Matt Schomburg’s signature head. All participants in the national FOGO competition will have statistics reviewed and verified by their respective club coaches to preserve the integrity of this essential group of specialists who “control the game.”

“The sport of lacrosse is often won or lost inside the face-off circle and we want to reward the nation’s top FOGO specialist with individual training from the best coach in the business,” said TheLocker Founder, Sean Morris.

Since 2005, FOGOLax Academy has been teaching the proper method of facing-off to some of the world’s best players. FOGOLax Academy will travel to the winning player’s hometown for individual training and signing up for the national competition is free and accessible on TheLocker’s homepage for members.

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.
