SPARKS, Md. — US Lacrosse is pleased to announce a multi-year partnership with Swax Lax to be an official training partner of US Lacrosse. As part of the partnership, each of the participants in the US Lacrosse TryLax clinics, geared towards beginning lacrosse players, will receive a Swax Lax soft training ball.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Swax Lax and appreciate their commitment to our members,” said Tom Pope, director of corporate partnership sales for US Lacrosse. “They have an outstanding product line that can help players of every level and their generosity with our TryLax program provides a really useful tool for kids getting their first-ever experience with lacrosse to take home and continue learning the sport.

“We are excited and proud to be an official training partner of US Lacrosse,” said Laura Gump, CEO and Founder of Swax Lax LLC. “We are a company of lacrosse coaches who is propelling the game forward by providing innovative training tools that empower players to learn the sport with more confidence to train anywhere, anytime.”

Swax Lax soft lacrosse training balls are the same weight and size as regulation lacrosse balls, but don’t bounce, roll less and create less worry for players and parents because they are softer. Whether you are practicing indoors or outdoors, Swax Lax believes there is no excuse not to train.

Swax Lax’s line of soft training balls includes the Classic ball which comes in an array of colors and fun patterns, as well as the Pro-Grip, which has the same tacky texture as a brand new lacrosse ball and is specifically designed for the more advanced player. In addition, the Swax Lax line includes the MiNi, designed for mini-sticks and the Power ball, created for strength improvement and a set of numbered balls made specifically for goalie training.

As an official training partner for the US Lacrosse TryLax clinic series, Swax Lax is honored to be able to supply its patent-pending soft training balls to help youth players learn the game with more confidence and less fear, enabling them to develop a life-long love of the game.
