WAX is excited to offer your daughters the opportunity to learn the skills of the game, grow as an athlete and a person, and have fun while playing lacrosse. The Girls program starts at age five and continues through age 14. We follow US Lacrosse rules. All levels play with eye protection and a colored mouth guard. Additionally, we use a certified lacrosse ball.
Assesments were held in late October and again in January. Team assignments are made after assessments and the season begins in March and runs through June. All teams practice one-two nights per week in addition to their games.

The Pockets season consists of practices 1 night/week beginning March 15, 2020. Games typically begin the first weekend in April and continue until the week after Memorial Day (4/4/20 – 5/30/20). Games are Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Beginning in May, there are also 1 or 2 weeknight games in lieu of practices for a total of 8 games.
Coaching Volunteers: Parents if you plan on helping to coach this upcoming spring, please take a moment and register to coach on our website. There is a link under the same registration page where you registered your daughter. Please take a few minutes to do this because without our volunteer coaches, this program doesn't happen for all the players. Thank you in advance for your time and effort.
