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 begin in mid to late January, team assignments are made after assessments and the season begins mid March or early April and runs through June. All teams practice one-two nights per week in addition to their games.
