Hello New RELAX Parents –

Welcome to the RELAX website. There is lots of information posted here but please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Lacrosse is a spring sport.  The season generally runs for about 12 weeks from March through the middle of June. In preparation of the season, we offer winter clinics for new and returning players.  You can read about the new player clinics under the “RELAX O/S” tab (RELAX Off/Season).  These clinics are a great way for your child to get a little familiar with the game before the spring season starts.
We encourage you to also visit a few tabs located on the left hand menu: The RELAX Philosophy, Required Equipment, and Where to Get Lax Gear. 

If you want to register for the spring, please do so ASAP. There is a lot of preparation that goes into getting ready for the start of the season, most of which is dependent on knowing how many players we have.  So please register by December 31st and avoid the $100 late fee.

Again, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.  We are listed under the “RELAX Contacts-Executive Committee” tab from the left hand menu.

Welcome to the RELAX family!

RELAX Returning Parents

Hello Returning RELAX Parents –

The RELAX Board is busy preparing for another great spring season of Lacrosse.

Although there are still a few months until the opening day, it’s imperative that you register your child now.  Coaches, teams, field requests, and practice/game scheduling are all dependent on our registration numbers.  In addition, we have equipment, uniforms and pinnies to order. We also have League deadlines to meet.  So please register by December 31st and avoid the $100 late fee.

We encourage all players to take advantage of the Winter programs RELAX is offering.  Most start the first week of January, so registration deadlines are fast approaching.  Visit the “RELAX O/S” tab for more information.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.  We are listed under the “RELAX Contacts-Executive Committee” tab from the left hand menu.

Not receiving emails?  Click on the “Edit My Account” tab from the left hand menu to make changes.

And Save the Date!  March 13, 2015  RELAX/Barlow Lacrosse Dinner/Auction

Don't put your stick down!

WALL BALL is one of the best things you can do to improve catching, throwing, and shooting. All you need is a wall, your stick, and a ball.


Improves:

  • Accuracy
  • Stick Skills
  • Passing
  • Shooting
  • Catching
  • Dodging
  • Conditioning
  • Hand Eye Coordination

Strengthens:

  • Wrists
  • Forearms
  • Body Trunk
  • Core
  • Shoulders
  • Legs


For Best Results:

  1. Find a flat brick or concrete wall at least 10 feet high, the longer the better. You have permission to use the big outside wall of the gym at Barlow, the one that faces the septic field.
  2. Every drill that you do — do it with both hands.
  3. Stand 5-7 yards away from the wall.
  4. Practice this routine at least 4-5 times per week.
  5. Each practice session should be at least 20 minutes. If you finish all drills in less than 20 minutes, repeat starting with the drill that challenged you the most.
  6. Use your ipod!
  7. Have fun!


Wall Ball Drills:

  1. Quick Stick with no cradle.  (50 right, 50 left.)
  2. One hand Quick Stick, no cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)

  7. Split Dodge: Throw right, catch right. Split dodge to left hand, throw left, catch left. Split back to right hand.  (50 right, 50 left.)
  8. Cross handed, weak side. (50 right, 50 left.) “Cross handed” means stick in right hand on the left side of body, or stick in left hand on right side of body. One quick cradle each time.
  9. Behind the back. (50 right, 50 left).
  10. Pass and Catch on the move, side to side.  (Go for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, repeat 3 times.)
