  1. Hey CCSLCers, Do you like NLL lacrosse? How about fantasy sports? Do you meet the CCSLC Fantasy Sports 6 month/500 post minimum? Then the ULL is for you! We're looking for 2 new owners for the 2018 season.
  2. During my commute home from work I pass a field where some youth lacrosse program practices. Boys on one side of the field and girls on the other side. I notice all of the boy LAX players wearing full helmets, while the girls only wear eye guards (don't know if that's the correct term for that piece of equipment). At the moment I'm watching a college women's lacrosse game on TV (Maryland vs Syracuse). I notice the only players wearing full helmets are the goalies, while the rest of the players just wearing the eye guards. Is there any reason why helmets are not worn in women's/girls lacrosse? Personally knowing of a handful of dudes that have had their bells seriously rung playing lacrosse with helmets, I cringe seeing female players out there without them. What's the deal?
  3. I've long thought the NLL was overdue for a logo revamp, and now at long last it seems they agree with me. The new logo will be revealed two weeks from tomorrow, at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut (where the New England Black Wolves play).
  4. Hello CCSLCers! The United Lacrosse League is looking for a new owner. If you are a fan of the National Lacrosse League, box lacrosse or, just a lacrosse fan in general and have at least six months membership on the boards and no less than 300-500 quality posts then we would welcome you to apply. Applications thread is here
  5. So this is my first project ever, I'm not very good at designing logos or jerseys, but we have to start somewhere. Basically I want to do a version of the league history threads but in an alternate universe where a group of Iroquois teach American settlers how to play Lacrosse and it eventually becomes widely popular in the states. It even leads to many feeling that the Natives should be left in peace, as the sport has shown that these people were not savages. So to reflect that, there are a few states in the Union that are mainly Native in population. (I will make a map of the alternate USA, this is something I CAN do.) The starting date will be 1870, so we would have pretty much no pads, and traditional sticks. Starting year club cities New York Baltimore Philadelphia Boston Six Nations Chicago New Jersey (Where the first professional Lacrosse game was played.) Charleston If you have an idea for a city or club name please post below. I also am in need of a template for an 1870's Lacrosse jersey.
  6. Welcome to the Lacrosse League of America (LLA). Here are the teams in it's inaugural season, 2013. Louisville Racers: Home Road Alternate
  7. As we approach the final month of regular season games I decided to come up with some uniform adjustments for college lacrosse teams. I will start by designing the ACC and move on to probably the Big Ten from there. Starting off I have Syracuse and Notre Dame. For Syracuse I wanted to give an old school feel, bring back the glory days, but I didn't want to go over the top with a throwback uniform. I combined elements from the uniforms they wore back when the Gaits were at the school, and also from the 2008, 2009 championship teams. With Notre Dame i went very new and crazy. The shamrock has a celtic design, which is also featured on the blue helmet. the gold helmet has a bright green chrome facemask. Also kept a similar striping to what they already have now.
  8. Little fun fact: your boy used to play lacrosse in high school! I love the game, I really do. I'm guilty for not following it enough. I started following the SB Nation college lacrosse blog this past January. Since then, I can't escape it. Tons of small New York schools show up on my timeline daily. Then over spring break, my friend gave me back two of my three sticks, since she wasn't using them. I had no choice but to make a vector template! So since my template making overall has improved since my last phase of lacrosse concepts, I needed to start new. I started from my soccer template. But the only thing that remained was the pants. I changed the jersey shape and cut, shortened the sock, threw on Mathew McElroy's glove template, entirely remade a penny because it wouldn't be lacrosse without it. I made it look exactly like my high school team. Finished with some branding to make it easy on everyone, and bam! Here it is! Right now, it's in SVG. You can download it below. I'm gonna convert it to .AI soon, but I just prefer woring in inscape on templates. Download my NuLax template here!
  9. I found out about Lacrosse about mid season 2014 of MLL. I've since became a fan of the league and the New York Lizards (2015 champs!!) I decided to make this topic page since there isn't a good lacrosse page on this website So I wanted to start this off with 2 topics 1 with the recent news of the Atlanta Blaze expansion, what city will also get a team? I think it will be either Philly, Toronto/Hamilton, or LA. I don't believe that Houston or a Texas team will get a team this early 2 since last year I missed the draft, I can't wait for the 2016 MLL draft, but I don't watch NCAA lacrosse much besides the NCAA championship. But I wanted to know what some of the top prospects are (I know there's Burnluhr, Jones or something, Rambo, and that's really all I remember) tho I know that the Lizards won't get any 1st or 2nd rounders for like 3 years ???
  10. As the college lacrosse season started this week, new gear was unveiled for the first time. Let's get to business, shall we? Furman has new Nike home jerseys against Ohio State. Navy has new golden chrome decals.
  11. With the exception of 2012, at least one National Lacrosse League franchise has moved or folded after every season since 1993, when the league was known as the Major Indoor Lacrosse League. This year is no different, as not one but two of the league's nine teams have a foot out the door - in both cases, with their owners citing leasing issues at the arenas where they play. Sadly, one of those two teams is my beloved Minnesota Swarm. It is unknown where they will end up, though Nashville, of all places, seems to be the early favorite. The other is the Edmonton Rush, whose relocation threats come as the team itself is making a deep run in the NLL playoffs. Their owner has had some rather ugly, public spats with city of Edmonton over their being shut out of the Oilers' under-construction new digs. His preferred destination - Saskatoon - seems even more far-fetched, though there is already a Facebook page calling for the Rush (who have several ex-Swarm players on their roster) to take the Swarm's place in Minnesota instead. It's also possible that the Rush franchise could just fold if neither of those markets work out for them. If both teams move, that will leave only five NLL teams (Buffalo, Toronto, Rochester, Colorado and Calgary) who have survived in their current markets since the 2006 season when the Rush franchise began play.
  12. First the Swarm moved from Minnesota to Georgia, without bothering to change up their look apart from sticking a different location name on their logos and unis. Now it's the newly crowned league champions' turn. This week the erstwhile Edmonton Rush announced a move one province over, to Saskatoon, where they are now known as the Saskatchewan Rush. The Rush unveiled their new logo in a promotional video on their new Web site, and as you can see, they didn't just pull a Swarm by slappping "Saskatchewan" where "Edmonton" had been. Nosiree, Bob. They changed the secondary color from silver/gray to a kind of sickly green, then slapped "Saskatchewan" where "Edmonton" had been.
  13. As you may be aware by now, the NLL's Minnesota Swarm, with whom I have held season tickets for the past eight years, have moved south to the Gwinnett Gladiators' arena in metro Atlanta. You'd think that, given such a long-distance relocation to a new market with a quite different local culture, the Swarm would change up their look a bit more than just slapping a different state's name on their pre-existing logo and uniform set. And, naturally, you'd be wrong. (from the team's Facebook page)
  14. Hello! This is my first topic, so it may seem a bit odd, but I was inspired by the fact that I have two favorite teams, the new logos, and another topic by LLHFHockey. Either way, the point of this is to get your own custom logo, with two of your favorite teams' logos, all within the logo. (Lots of logos.) Some examples are posted below.
  15. Five years ago my brother, father and I set out to create an "Athletic Uniformory" to streamline the lacrosse uniform design and production process. Throughout the past 5 years, everything has changed... with the exception of our passion to deliver Professional-grade athletic wear that empowers every team to look and act as a team, on and off the field. That said, it is time to say goodbye to our old branding as I feel it doesn't symbolize the state of "Uniformity" that we like to associate ourselves with. Also, I've attached another logo that I've been working on. I'd appreciate hearing the feedback that anyone has! Left - Old Right - New
  16. I recently just finished completing a new box lacrosse/ hockey template along with a new lacrosse glove template. Also, credits to Hockeyny13 on the Cascade R Helmet template. I modified the shape of the R by using Inkscape. Anyways, here is a rebrand I did for the Chicago Outlaws of the Continental Indoor Lacrosse League. CC is encouraged and I hope you all enjoy it. A closer look at the gloves.
  17. First post to the forum. I handle creative direction for the Zima Gear team. All artwork posted is my own. We worked with multiple World Game teams (USA, Iroquois, Wales to name a few) this year and below are a couple of the mockups. I tried for days to convince Wales to get Red Facemasks, however they insisted on green. Mockup: On Helmet:
  18. Since the Lacrosse World Championships will be starting July 10th i thought I'd try to create some uniform concepts for some of the teams. I will try to do all 38 teams but the teams i will be doing for sure are: Finland, Mexico, Columbia, Spain, Israel, Korea, Slovakia, Sweden, China, Italy, Norway, Netherlands, USA, Canada, England, and Iroquois. I will start with mexico and Finland. First up is Finland. I used the international hockey logo of the lion and then used Duke as my inspiration for the uniform. For Mexico i used the baseball logo. I know it looks strange and almost like a mcDonalds m so i didn't use it except for on the one helmet. I used the 2006 soccer uniforms as inspiration.
  19. The FIL world championships started last night with USA vs. Canada - Great pictures of the entire uniforms in action can be found here A little disappointed in the team USA helmet...I love the matte grey helmet, just not for USA - I do like the contrast of the matte grey and the gold chrome cage, though...the team Canada helmet on the other hand is beautiful - matte black with red metal flake decals, red chrome cage, and the mohawk stripe is great I'm torn about the team USA uniform...not sure I love the sleeveless look, but the team USA uniform is WAY better than the team Canada uniform, which is a mess...Broncos stripes on the side/front, Adidas stripes on the shoulders and shorts, mis-matched wordmark and number fonts...ugly here are some links (here and here) to other international teams and their gear...i particularly like team Thailand's look your thoughts?
  20. I have a list of cities that I will use but if there is another city that you want me to add I will do it, or if you want me to take any out. The list of cities as of now: Richmond Rebels Chicago Wind Los Angles Fame Atlanta Toronto Seattle Killer Whales Dallas Rough riders Houston Phoenix Pumas Detroit Philadelphia Founders San Francisco Pittsburgh Maulers Salt Lake City/Utah Minneapolis Portland Indianapolis Louisville Louisiana Gators Milwaukee Hogs Cincinnati Rivermen Omaha Rio Grande Valley St.Louis That is all i have right now. I know my concepts will suck so I want feedback on how i can make them better. Also give Ideas for mascot names
  21. Another year, another National Lacrosse League franchise goes bye-bye, either to another city or to oblivion. It's a ritual that indoor lacrosse fans are all too familiar with. Only this time, it's not just another NLL team biting the dust, but the only one left from its inaugural season in 1987 in its original market and under its original identity. Several markets in the U.S. and Canada have been speculated as the Wings' new home, but at this point the favorite appears to be Hartford, Connecticut.
  22. I'm not sure anyone has done something like this, but here goes. Ever since I was in Grade 7 I have been drawing an entire city, Johnstonville. I have always been fascinated by Cities, Roads, what-have-you and I have also always loved sports and design; but I have never put them together until now. This idea of a city has expanded into an entire country. It would be its own island west of Australia, East of South Africa and South of India. I still have yet to name it, but I have a few City, State/Province, County names. It is very similar to Canada with some added American, European, Austra-Japanese Elements. The population is about 60 million with the largest Metro area being around 8 million people. I won't bore you guys anymore with some useless fantasy that doesn't relate to the sports. So to start it off I have chosen the capital of my country; Johnstonville, New Ontario. (That's the Province of New Ontario). The city's colours are Cookies and Cream so most of the concepts will consist of that colour scheme. "What a strange colour combination!" Yes, it is, but it's unique. The reasoning behind this was when I first made the city - which is now just downtown - I used names of Chocolate companies to name some of the streets. I guess I had a sweet tooth when I was a kid. Due to the limit on Outsourcing Jobs in my country, Hershey's built a plant and office in Johnstonville to be the HQ of Hershey's in the Eastern World. As well as a few other chocolate companies having offices in the city and then later moved to Greenfield, New Ontario. Also having the same colour scheme makes it a little easier - as this is kind of a sample to see if I can handle all of these sports - the team will have the same name. The name is after the F-117 Nighthawk. "BUT THAT'S MADE IN CALIFORNIA!" It's made in Johnstonville in my world and is really the only involvement my country has with war. My goal is to make entire professional leagues for the entire country. So think of it in the style of High School or College for now, where all the sports have the same name. So far the Major Sports I have in mind are: Hockey (the Ice kind, not that field stuff) Women's Hockey (possibly) Football (the Canadian kind, bigger ball, bigger field, 13 players, with NFL's 4 downs) Soccer Baseball Basketball Rugby (Union, 15 players) Lacrosse (Indoor)
  23. Hey everybody. It's been awhile since I've posted any concepts on here. I've been busy with my first year of being a collegiate student athlete at UDC. I was very interested in TheGiantsFan's hand drawn baseball series. So, I decieded to find some field templates I found in the SVG thread (credits to all of the template creator(s), can't think off the top my head about who made them) and create a stadium from scratch via Inkscape and graph paper. I had to research different sized stadiums to determine how large the seating capacity should be: ie, Klockner Stadium (UVA Lax and Soccer), Homewood Field (Johns Hopkins), and Armstrong Stadium (Hampton University). After sketching up the design, I used Inkscape to recreate and enhance some of the features. Most of the field designs will have football and/or lacrosse markings down. So let's get started, here's my first set. Enjoy! Venue Name: Bowman Stadium Location: Buena Vista, Florida Seat Capacity: (10,000) Planning Sketch: Finished Version:
  24. Alas, you won't be able to un-behold it afterward. In case you were wondering: This is a new team in the Canadian Lacrosse League, a level below the NLL in box lacrosse and whose season overlaps the NLL's. The "Southwest" refers to southwest Ontario, a vague name apparently chosen because the team only plans to stay in its current arena for one season and then relocate to parts presently unknown.
  25. In the past four years the National Lacrosse League's Stealth franchise has moved up the Pacific coast from San Jose to Everett, WA and now to the Vancouver suburb of Langley, BC. Their visual identity has become increasingly bland the farther north they've gone. Here are the various logos of the San Jose Stealth... the Washington Stealth... and now, the newly unveiled logo of the Vancouver Stealth: Now, the Washington Stealth did have a sharp-looking secondary fox logo, but it's not yet known whether that will be kept on in Vancouver Langley. (That it seems to have completely vanished from the Internet is, however, not a good sign.)
