Our Mission

To ensure a unified and responsive organization that develops and promotes the sport by providing services to its players and families in an effort to inspire participation, while preserving the integrity of the game.

We can't fully live up to the mission without our members help and support.  We realize that the Westminster Area Lacrosse program will always have room for improvement.  We have been able to achieve unprecedented success with respect to our program as a result of the support from our coaches, volunteers, families and players.


Westminster Area Lacrosse is a member of the Westminster Area Recreation Council, as well as the Friends of Carroll Parks and Recreation, a 501 c(3). We are supported by the member volunteers of WAX, and operate under the supervision of the Carroll County Department of Recreation and Parks.
