FAQs

What is the benefit of using a Swax Lax soft lacrosse training ball over a regulation ball?

The answer to this question depends who you’re asking! For beginners and their coaches, the Swax Lax ball is softer and less intimidating, but it's still the same weight and size as a regulation ball. This means that new players can learn how to throw and catch the ball using the correct technique rather than flinching or holding their sticks in the wrong position. Since the ball doesn’t roll, missed catches stop where they land; players can pick up the ball and keep practicing!

More advanced players have found the Swax Lax ball to be the perfect fit for indoor use. Since it doesn’t bounce, indoor practices are significantly less chaotic than with rubber balls, but they don’t damage gym floorboards like some of the harder indoor lacrosse balls.

What makes Swax Lax lacrosse training balls different from regular lacrosse balls?

Although our training balls and lacrosse balls are the same size and weight, Swax Lax training balls are filled with sand and have a soft fabric exterior as opposed to lacrosse balls, which are solid rubber.

What’s the difference between Swax Lax Pro-Grip and the regular Swax Lax ball?

Our Pro-Grip balls are the same size and weight as our regular Swax Lax balls but they’re made with a new, tacky material. The material has more grip and mimics the feel of a brand new rubber lacrosse ball in your stick.

What is the difference between the MiNi and a regular Swax Lax ball?

Our MiNi ball is 10% smaller and 25% lighter than the regular Swax Lax ball; it is just the right weight in a mini stick pocket.

What is the difference between the goalie balls and the regular Swax Lax balls?

Both balls are the same size and weight as a regulation ball. The goalie balls have numbers on the panels — coaches can work on hand-eye coordination with their keepers by tossing balls to the goalies and having them call out the number and the color of the Swax Lax ball. Watch goalie training videos using Swax Lax balls.

Are Swax Lax balls good for practicing stick tricks?

Swax Lax balls are very good for practicing stick tricks. Because of the softer exterior of the ball, it is easier to practice difficult stick tricks with more confidence.

Can Swax Lax balls get wet?

Swax Lax balls can get wet. When the balls get wet, they become a little heavier, but after a few hours, the ball goes back to normal.

What are the limitations of Swax Lax balls?

We recommend wearing appropriate protective gear when using Swax Lax balls. In very rare circumstances, Swax Lax balls have gotten wedged into a face mask when thrown at very high speeds.

Do you offer discounts for bulk orders?

We sure do! Please email our Team Sales department.

Do you do customize balls for team and bulk orders?

Yes! We are happy to create custom orders for teams! For more information, email us.

Can you customize Pro-Grip balls?

In order to make sure that our Pro-Grip balls keep their grippy feel, we do not print additional logos on the ball. The material gets smooth when it is dyed so we cannot customize Pro-Grip balls.

Do you have specific drills you would recommend?

Yes! Check out the training video section of our website to see some of the drills we use at our own lacrosse camps and clinics!

Does Swax Lax ship to Canada?

Yes, Swax Lax currently ships to all of Canada! Hot Tip: the base price of shipping to Canada can be high, so bulk orders will give you the most bounce for the ounce!
