Laxachusetts Youth Parents,
Great ending to our Youth Fall Ball season at Progin Park, Lancaster, Ma.
Fantastic job by ALL of our teams at the Primetime Shootout.
The Laxachusetts program proudly won 7 out of 8 Divisions. (2028, 2026A, 2026AA, 2025A, 2025AA, 2024A, 2024AA)
Our overall record on the day was 41 wins and 7 losses (with 3 of those losses LXC vs LXC).
The combined fall ball record in both tourneys finished up at 66 wins, 11 losses and 1 tie)
More importantly than W’s and L’s was the hard work and grit our boys demonstrated throughout the fall season.
We have LOTS to work on this off season. We look forward to our skill training program starting in November. Our winter skills is the reason we are so successful regionally (as we just demonstrated the past 2 weekends) but we do not work hard just to be the best in the region. We have BIGGER Goals. We strive to be the best in the country.
Last year at the National Club Championships we had 7 teams make the semi finals and our 2026 team won the National Championships (and our 2020 Class lost in the Finals) on ESPN U.
The only way we can continue to excel regionally and nationally is to put the work in during the off season. We love our multi sport athletes but with multiple skill locations during the week, players NEED to get to skills.
Just as important (even more important for all of our youth players) is to get the sticks in their hands at home and hit the wall. No better way to improve stick skills and it only takes 15 minutes a day.
Skill sessions at the following locations this winter: Union Point, Canton Sports Plex, Norfolk Forekicks, Norwood Compete Sports, Sudbury Field House, Bedford Edge, Danvers Sportsplex
No one works harder in the off season
Congrats to everyone on an amazing fall season. Best of luck with your football, hockey and soccer seasons.
We cant wait to see you at skills in November.

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.
The entire focus in our fall ball program is on player skill development and raising the competition level and lax IQ of our players.
We enter ALL of our teams in the most competitive bracket at the Scarecrow tourney so they are all being equally challenged .
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 at the beautiful facilities at the Taunton Forekicks Facility.
This is the 5th year in a row we have attended the Scarecrow Tourney and for the 5th year in a row, we went undefeated in 4 out of 5 age divisions (2027, 2026, 2025 and 2024).
Overall our Laxachusetts Youth teams combined 25 wins, 10 losses and 1 tie. With 3 of those 10 losses coming from LXC vs LXC games.
Overall terrific day for our players, teams, coaches and parents.
We have much work to do this off-season but this is a great way to start and the boys displayed grit and hard work throughout the day. .
Lots of rust to shake off of those sticks but the good news is that our Indoor Skills training begins in November at various locations. 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.
We look forward to our final tourney of our Youth Fall Ball season on Oct. 26th at Lancaster, MA.
BOSTON PRIDE !!
The National Club Lacrosse Championships were held at UMass Amherst over the weekend and the talent level was off the charts.
The National Lacrosse Federation (NLF) invited the top 32 club teams in North American to participate in the National Club Lacrosse Championships which drew a record setting number of college coaches with over 230 in attendance over 3 days.

Our boys from Boston continued with the success our program has had all summer at regional and national events. Our LXC teams impressed at all levels (youth and high school) at the Club National Championships.
