Lacrosse Drills for Coaches

Swax Lax soft lacrosse training balls provide a variety of applications for players of all ages. The weight and dimensions of the Swax Lax ball 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 less bounce and ricochet, missed passes are easily corralled and put back into the drill allowing more reps and less chasing — and more productive practices.
