There is no denying the fact that box lacrosse is popular right now especially after Canada dismantled Team USA in field lacrosse at the 2014 World Games in Denver. Every player on Team Canada has a box lacrosse background. Also just about every top D1, D2 and D3 NCAA team has amazing Canadians who have played more box than field lacrosse. Colleges are heavily recruiting players with box skills because they know how much it makes them a better field player.

The Capital North Stars will have experienced box coaches (see website for BIOS) teaching the box game properly. All players will be given and wear full proper box pads which are FAR MORE PROTECTIVE than outdoor pads. The Capital North Stars will play the game like the youth plays in Canada. No modifications to suit Americans. The true Canadian game is unique and has so many positive aspects that translates easily to the field game...ultimately making EVERY player better at field lacrosse.

Register today for tryouts and have a lot fun playing a new sport this winter! If you play you will be so much more prepared and so much better by the spring season that your coaches will be incredibly impressed!

Clippers Sink the Arrows

09/23/2014, 9:45am EDT
By Madlax California

The Clippers used the Terra Linda high school connection to earn a well-deserved victory of the Arrows. Stuart Jennings controlled the majority of draws throughout the three periods while the offense developed with each repetition. Coach Klontz used “Baltimore” as the base play for the game, the players responded well and executed a number of fine plays over the last two periods. The entire team contributed, with Nick Dooley earning lots of praise for his continued development and ability to control loose balls.

Salmonbellies Fall to the Mohawks

By Madlax California

Calvin Dines stepped into goal for the Mohawks and held his line splendidly the entire day. Isaiah Blomgren could not be stopped at the face-off X and in transition. His BTB goal through the opposing keeper’s legs was the highlight of the day. Art, Dylan, and Luke all had strong showings, erasing any doubt that the short bench of the Mohawks was a weak point. The Salmonbellies fought hard, and kept the game interesting but Coach Harlan could not find an answer to stifle the offensive domination by Coach Klontz’ side.

Clippers Edge Mohawks in Opening BABLL Game

By Madlax California

The Clippers used the exquisite goalie play of Adam Simon, allowing only six goals, to beat the Mohawks 7-6. Dominic Piombo didn’t seem to ever need a substitute for the Mohawks and played very well, giving his team the chance to win. Ian McKissick showed an incredible amount of grit, scooping countless loose-balls and created numerous 1-on-1 chances against goalie Simon. Adam Simon had Ian’s number most of the afternoon and saved 3 of 4 breakaway shots. These saves propelled the Clippers to their 1st win and they are now in control of their destiny!

HS Orange Reaches Quarterfinals at FLG

07/22/2014, 6:15am EDT
By Madlax California

The Madlax California HS Orange team took its first trip to the East Coast this summer with the FLG in 3D tournament.  The team started play on Friday with an 7-4 win over the Looney's 2016 Green, a powerhouse club out of Baltimore. 
On Saturday, they opened the day with a second win over the Predators 2016 out of Maryland and finished bracket play with an 11-8 loss to 3D Canada/America. 

After the bracket play, the team was 2-1 and headed to a quarterfinal game against Eclispe.  Unforutnatley, the team lost to Eclispe, the eventual 2016 champions, to bow out of the championship bracket.

However, on Sunday morning the team bounced back with a decisive and dominating win 9-7 over the Haymakers.  It was a great weekend for Madlax California.  The team showed great character and was paced by Team MVP Angelo Lagormarismo and C.A.S.E. award winner Cary Goeller.

"This group was incredible," said Head Coach Panchito Ojeda.  "They played as a team.  Very unselfish and focused on getting better and learning the game.  Throughout the weekend they represented Madlax California and themsevles well.  Each of these young men are getting better and poised to make a big impact with Madlax in the fall and their high schools next spring!"

The 2019 Madlax National team won the World Lacrosse Fesitval Championship in Denver, Co. this week, beating Denver Elite 5-4 in the semi-final to earn the championship berth. Team Madlax showed very impressive focus and IQ to pace the game versus NJ South, earning a 8-6 win!

Coach Maddux, Coach Boothe, and Coach Marriott kept the peddle to the metal the entire tournament; Madlax outscored their opponents 79-15 to garnish an 8-0 record. 

The National Team was paced by goalie Tim Marcille, Faceoff man Rory Bracken, LSM/D Michael Grogan and attackman Taylor Musa, but the depth of talent was most impressive to the coaches. 

Madlax-Cali's Todd Evans (attack) joined the National Team and coaches were impressed with his showing. Coach Marriott on Madlax-Cali's Todd Evans, "Todd proved to be a good finisher and potted several goals for us. stepping into a completely new team smoothly."

"All in all, the players, families and coaches had a great experience and will have memories that last a lifetime. It's truly incredible that players from different programs throughout the country can come together and accomplish such a great achievement," were Coach Marriott's words to wrap up a truly breathtaking run in Denver, Co. at the World Lacrosse Festival.
