Fear is a natural instinct and engrained into our being. 99% of fear is non-physical and only exists in our heads. How can we overcome it and embark on the path to success?
In competitive sports many athletes fear how they are perceived, whether their skill level is adequate enough and what it takes to elevate their level of play.
In the movie, Coach Carter (2005, MTV Films and Paramount Pictures) Samuel Jackson plays Coach Ken Carter - a determined and tough basketball coach of the Richmond High School basketball team. In one memorable scene he asks one of his players, “Timo, what is your deepest fear?”
Timo’s answer is profound.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Winning is outperforming yourself.

One of our favorite products is the Blackfeet Mini Stick; this stick is great for practicing your craft and improving your lacrosse skills. From now through October 31, 2019 we are also offering free shipping!
If you have ever played a lacrosse defensive position you understand the importance of a light yet strong pole for the speed it provides while allowing you to carry it up and down the field with ease.
Blackfeet Lacrosse manufactures defensive poles made from Ash wood significantly altering the weight-to-strength ratio to help you achieve your defensive goals.
Traditionally wood poles have been the defensive standard. A modern (Blackfeet Lacrosse) wood pole trades extreme lightness for shock & flexibility while maintaining strength. What modern wood poles lack in speed they make up for in their increase of ground balls throughout the game. Ground balls win games.
A Blackfeet - modern wood pole - adds a dimension to your game by increasing your ball control and decreasing your opponents. Try out each of these modern tools and watch your defense improve! Our blue defensive pole is on sale through October 31.
