Pockets will get a little later start - once the weather warms for the little guys and girls.

All coaches and volunteers on the field are required by the county to have a background check completed. Details on background checks will be forthcoming to all who register to coach.
We have had a few changes to the Board in the off season. Bob Jenkins has stepped down as Director, but has graciously decided to stay on to assist me as the new Director this year. Bryan Grove has also stepped down after many years of coaching and serving on the board in a variety of positions. From everyone on the board a sincere THANK YOU to both Bob and Bryan for the amount time and effort they put in year in and year out. I can't express enough, how much they have contributed to the program and well being of our children.
We have one new addition to the board this year, please join me in welcoming Chris Jones as our newest board member. Chris has been a long time coach with WAX and brings a lot of experience with him. We are excited to have him join us.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact any board member. Thank you and "Go WAX!"

Also, smart phone users, did you know there is now an app that you can download to easily get to our WAX site? Download the "League Athletics" app and add "Westminster Area Lacrosse" as your organization. Once you log in, it is a quick and easy resource to the teams your children are registered to. You can easily email or text your coach or team, and get notifications right to your phone! You can still access waxlax.org from your phone and use the mobile site, but this app makes it even a little easier to get the updates and make the connections that you need! Try it out!
