Lacrosse Drills and Training Videos

Swax Lax soft lacrosse training balls provide a variety of applications for players of all ages. The weight and dimensions of the product mimic the qualities of a regulation lacrosse ball, while also enhancing the player's ability to play with confidence due to its soft quilted construction. And with no bounce, missed passes are easily corralled and put back into the drill allowing more reps and less chasing.
