It’s time to get SERIOUS


For all of you laxers out there on the brink of your High School season, it’s time to get serious. You may be currently attending captains’ practices or training sessions with a Club team. However, I am going to argue that the real effort to prepare lies outside of any sort of organized practice.

The question you have to ask yourself is: how serious are you about getting better?

I hate to say it, but throwing the ball around in a leisurely manner, with casual reps against a wall, are not going to produce any fast results. So for this season’s Laxachusetts Challenge, we are going to get SERIOUS. Beyond the prizes, the Instagram videos, and the glory of being named a “winner,” are you ACTUALLY putting in the work on your own and holding yourself accountable? 

Ask yourself that honestly.

It’s easy to be anxious for the upcoming tryouts, but what if there is a different way? What if you worked so hard in the next three weeks that the confidence and fluidity you feel with your stick trumps any anxiety you feel about your upcoming tryout? What if you push your body hard NOW so that when you step on that line to run the first day, you feel confident, tough, prepared.

If you’re not sure what to do, let me make it easy for you. I am making a promise that getting better outside of practice only takes 22 minutes of focused, intense skill work (plus, it’s FUN). Eliminate the dread by putting in the work, NOW.

I urge you to get SERIOUS, and join our 2016 Preseason Challenge.  

And not just for the prizes or the glory, but for the results.

Sunday, November 15, 2015: The Fall Fear

It was our last drive out to Devens for the fall season, as we took on “The Fall Fear” tournament put on by the Bay State Bullets. While many of our teams had a good showing and advanced to the playoffs, our 2024/2025 Shamrock and our 2019 Lime team each won their respective brackets!! From our Youth teams all the way to High School, way to REPRESENT!!


Overall, it was a great day of team camaraderie, learning experiences and some hard fought, exciting wins!! 

It’s time for WINTER PRACTICES!! Our focus this year will be on TEAM CONCEPTS and learning to play together. This means it will be VITAL that you are keeping up with your stick work reps at home! Check back weekly as we will be posting new workouts and routines for you to follow at home. 

Thanks to ALL Laxachuzians for an INCREDIBLE fall and we look forward to seeing our High School teams tear it up this weekend down in Orlando!!

Also, this was the best FREEBALL we have seen yet! 

Stay laxxyy, Laxachuzians…
