Registration is open for Penn*Lax Tryouts on Nov. 25-27 at XL Sports World (Hatfield) and Maple Zone Institute (Garnet Valley).

Penn*Lax has historically produced elite box teams on a national level, coupling some of the the state’s top players with some of the country’s most experienced box coaches and an elite training platform.

“Beyond anything, Penn*Lax is presented as a developmental opportunity unlike most any other offered in the US.” said Penn*Lax co-founder Steven Holmes.”The box game when mastered will allow for accelerated stick-work, creativity, physicality, IQ, and decision making to excel beyond anything that field lacrosse can provide on its own.”

“We understand that the game must be taught properly to receive all of these benefits. We are once again excited to unveil across the board what we believe to be the most experienced box staff in the country! The training is unmatched and we always have an eye on continuing to set the bar for box lacrosse excellence, as we hope to continue our success of winning our extremely competitive tournament schedule.”

Each team has TWO tryouts. Attendance at both is not mandatory but HIGHLY recommended.
