WELCOME TO THE MT. AIRY GIRLS LACROSSE PROGRAM
Maglax has continued to bring Lacrosse to the Four County Region since it began. Each season is filled with fun and excitement as the younger girls grow into their game and teams and new girls try the sport. It has truly been an amazing experience for the Coaches and Players. We are proud of the skills and levels that they have achieved and are very thankful to our players and Maglax families for all their dedication and volunteerism that it takes to make Maglax LAX terrific!
The Mt. Airy Girls' Lacrosse (MAGLAX) program was established in the spring of 2003, As part of the Mt. Airy Youth Athletic Association (MAYAA) in Mt. Airy,MD. MAGLAX plays in the Western Maryland Youth Lacrosse Conference (WMYLC). MAYAA is part of the CHARACTER COUNTS PROGRAM!
The first season included one "U-12" team appropriately named the "Trailblazers" since it was the first lacrosse team ever in Mt.Airy. We had 20 girls from grade 3-8 all playing together on a U-12 team!
After a very successful inaugural season, and informal fall clinic, in the spring of 2004 we fielded teams at the U-10, U-12, U-14 levels as well as an "in house" youth clinic for ages 4-9. In our first season with teams at every level, we had a combined record of 19 wins and 6 losses! We had a total of 79 girls in the program!
For the 2005 season, we had grown to 103 girls!!!! We had a team AT EVERY LEVEL IN THE LEAGUE (two u9 teams) AND an "in house clinic" again for the little, little ones!! Which is full to capicity for the second year in a row!!!!
The formal youth clinic starts in April, and is held on Saturday mornings. The girls are given a "clinic stick and ball" to use for the entire clinic. This clinic is a great way to introduce young girls to the sport of lacrosse, in an inexpensive, fun way. (also see the following titles: SPRING YOUTH CLINIC REVIEW, "LITTLE SISTERS" PROGRAM, and SPRING YOUTH CLINIC 2005, below for more info)
The free fall clinic of 2005 was OUTSTANDING!!! We had 64 different girls show up during the month of September. We averaged about 30 girls per night. In comparison, the most we have ever had in the past 3 fall clinics, is 35 girls through Sept. AND Oct., with an average of about 10 girls per night!!! In the spring of 2006 we had 130 girls on the roster, with two U9 and two U11 teams!!!! In 2007 we've cut back a little to 95 girls while competing with the growing programs nearby. - Lacrosse is exploding in popularity! - We have also introduced a new governing body - The MAGLAX Committee - which has taking over the day to day workings of the organization which was so "lovingly" taken care of, since the beginning of MAGLAX, by its founding father Vinny Duffy.
For more information about the clinics or anything else, please feel free to contact anyone on the contacts list!

PLEASE NOTE: MAGLAX WILL NOT HONOR REQUESTS FOR CERTAIN TEAMS/TEAMMATES, COACHES and/or REQUESTS FOR CARPOOL REASONS!!
With that said, please understand that ALL decisions are made in the best interest of the PLAYER, TEAM(S) and/or the MAGLAX program! Players are NOT kept together because they were on the same team, or had the same coach last year! A new coach will NOT be expected to coach a team with all new players, just because they are a new coach. Every attempt will be made to have an even distribution of skill and experience on each team.

MAGLAX SPRING YOUTH CLINIC
The MAGLAX youth clinic is specificly designed for the "Little Ones." It is a no team, no travel, no ref, no pressure, inexpensive way to introduce the GREAT SPORT OF LACROSSE to the any girl too young, small and/or inexperienced to play at the U-9 level.
The girls will be given a "soft" stick and a ball to use for the duration of the clinic. So no need to go buy a stick. Although a mouth guard and eyewear are good, They are not required. The best reason to have them would be just so the girls could get used to using them. The "soft" stick and ball, offer a safe, fun, fundamentally sound way to teach the basic skills of lacrosse.
The skills the girls learned were throwing, catching, scouping, craddling, shooting and how to switch hands while they "dodged." They also learned all the lines on the field, and their purpose of each. Finally, the girls learned the difference between offense and defense and all the positions of the field, and had a chance to play them all against their parents.
The Spring clinic concludes with a GREAT Kids vs. Parents game.
