Laxachusetts High School Players Regional and National Success

By Staff, 07/12/18, 5:15PM EDT


We would like to celebrate the Regional and National Success of our High School Players. 

Our High School Players work incredibly hard year round on and off the field. Our model focusing on academics first and foremost. Second is being a great person in the community. Third is being a hard working multi sport athlete. The last piece is making yourself and your teammates better by training and pushing each other year round. 

Laxachusetts Lacrosse is the top lacrosse club when it comes to training and developing lacrosse players. We compete against North America's top club teams from 3rd grade - 12th grade. We do not judge success by wins or losses, but how our players compete and play the game. We are very fortunate to take home many championships in all grades and we the part we are most proud of, is that we have success with keeping to our goals of academics, character and multi sport athletes. 

We love to see the hard work of our players pay off at the town / school level. We could not be more proud to see all of our players that work so hard have tremendous success for their schools in the Spring.

Vail Shootout. Returning Champs Laxachusetts U19 Team returns to Finals. 

Each year Laxachusetts send a team of our top elder players to take on the top teams of rising college freshman at the Historic Vail Shootout. Laxachusetts won the Vail Shootout in 2017. We have been in the finals for the 3 previous years. 
This year our 2018 squad once again made it to the Finals. We lost to a superb FCA team. 
Another amazing performance from the Boys in Boston in Vail. 

The Vail Lacrosse Tournament is by most accounts, the most prestigious annual Club Lacrosse tournament in the world. Past years have seen the United States national team and the Canadian national team enter the tournament (1994). In 1993, the Canadian East and West invitational squads competed in the tournament, and held a quiet intersquad game on the last day of the tournament to help determine the final roster for the 1994 Canadian national team. The English national team competed in Vail in 1992, and for the last 10 years, the top teams from the United States Club Lacrosse Association have brought teams to Vail.
