The Laxachusetts Youth Fall Ball program is an optional program where about 50% of our players participate because the other 50% are too busy with fall sport (football, hockey and soccer).
Its a great opportunity for players to get plenty of coaching, development and playing time with smaller size rosters at the events.
The main focus on our Fall Ball season is about playing the game with toughness, grit and outworking your opponents. At our skill sessions the main focus is on passing / catching with strict detail on mechanics. This game is much easier to have success when you can pass and catch with both hands.
We wrapped up our Fall Ball season last weekend at Devens, MA where we participated in the Primetime Fall Classic hosted by the PrimeTime Penguins. A great event with strong clubs from MA, RI, NH and CT.
Our Laxachusetts teams won 6 of the 7 Championships.
Overall our teams went a combined 40 wins and 6 losses at the PrimeTime Fall Classic.
We participated in (2) Local Tourneys this Fall with the Scarecrow Tourney hosted by NH Tomahawks and Primetime Fall Classic hosted by PT Penguins.
After the two tourneys we had a combined record of 74 wins, 10 losses and 2 ties winning 10 out of 12 Championships.
We are very happy for the success of our players and teams but more importantly, we are proud of how hard our boys played.
We do not judge success by wins and losses alone. We just success on how those wins and losses happen.
We look forward to our favorite part of the program year. Our indoor skills training from November to March. This is where the real work begins and how our players separate themselves from the pack.

We look forward to getting to work over the next few months.
The Laxachusetts Youth Fall Ball Program is an optional program for our youth players. We typically have 60% of our players participate in the fall ball program due to other fall sports commitments such as football, soccer and hockey.
Our fall ball program consists of 5 skill sessions and 2 tourneys.
In our first tourney of the Fall Ball Program we participated in the NH Tomahawks Scarecrow Festival. It is always a great event with the top clubs from NH, MA and RI attending. Beautiful facilities at the Taunton Forekicks Facility.
This is the 4th year in a row we have offered our Fall ball program and for the 4th year in a row, we took home 4 out of 5 Championships at the NH Tomahawks Scarecrow Festival.
Overall our Laxachusetts Youth teams combined 34 wins, 9 losses and 2 ties. With 4 of those 9 losses coming to LXC vs LXC games.
We took home CHAMPIONSHIPS in the 4th Grade Division, 5th Grade Division, 6th Grade Division and 7th Grade Division.
Congrats to NE Twisters for winning the 8th grade division.
Overall terrific day for our players, teams, coaches and parents.
We have a lots of work to do this off season but this is a great way to start.
Reminder that our Indoor Skills training begins the week of Nov 5th. As we always say, we do not judge success on wins and losses but how those wins and losses happen.
First and foremost is that we expect our players to give an all out effort and anything less is unacceptable. Which we did see this weekend at the Scarecrow Tourney. With small rosters, our players did work very hard and we are proud of the effort we saw from all of them.
We look forward to our final tourney of our Youth Fall Ball season on Oct. 28th at Devens, MA.
