Redefining Girl Power—Spotlight On Megan Douty, Team USA December 17, 2017 00:00
This week we’re giving center stage to Team USA defensive player Megan Douty. Megan and fellow Division I athlete, Alex Marino, run All Lax LLC in Monmouth County, New Jersey. At All Lax, they train athletes beyond the lacrosse field through strength and conditioning sessions, nutritional planning, and discussions on how each player can maximize their own potential. We recently started working with Megan and Alex after they got in touch with us in hopes of using Swax Lax Lacrosse Training Balls at their camps and clinics.
Megan and Alex Love Swax Lax
“We are excited to have Swax Lax Lacrosse Training Balls available for use at our camps and clinics. The versatility of the ball allows for a safe environment for the girls while not taking away from getting the most out of our training.”
Prior to running All Lax, Megan was a four-year defensive starter at University of Maryland. While at Maryland, Megan and her team captured two National Championships and three ACC Championships. While most would think winning the National Championship is impressive, Megan was just getting started! Following her time at Maryland, Megan played for the Women’s National Team where she took home two gold medals. After the World Cup, Megan was named to the All World Team, making her one of the best 11 players in the world!
The honor of making the All World Team did not go unnoticed. Megan was the 9th overall draft pick for the Women’s Professional Lacrosse Team and will now be playing for the New England Command!
Megan’s Goals for All Lax
We caught up with Megan to learn a bit more about why she started All Lax and her hopes for the business’s future.
“I have a strong passion for growing the sport and helping girls reach their goals. Lacrosse has given me so much, and I am excited to pass my knowledge to the future of this game!”
She also told us a bit about her devotion to goal setting, a skill that she passes onto those she coaches who are hoping to reach Megan’s level of play in the future.
“I think setting goals was crucial in my success over the years. The little goals that lead to big accomplishments allowed me to stay motivated and focused to succeed. At All Lax we are passionate about helping female athletes understand the significance of setting goals and the work that goes into making them come to life.”
At Swax Lax, we share Megan’s passion for developing female athletes while growing the sport of lacrosse. We wish Megan all the success and luck as she competes with the Women’s Professional Lacrosse League and continues to build strong athletes at All Lax!
