Throughout the urban areas of Baltimore, lacrosse has grown and continues to grow at a fantastic rate. Our Baltimore City public schools currently offers lacrosse in a numerous amount of middle schools and currently offers varsity lacrosse in each of its high schools.
In an effort to further develop and increase the involvement of the Baltimore City lacrosse player, we (Blax Lax) run a number of off-season lacrosse programs.

For the past 13 years of our programs existence, we've had 100's and 100's of kids pass through our off-season camps, leagues, clinics, developmental teams, and tournament travel teams. We've also yearly lease seasonal facilitates for competition, and just for free-play. Through these years, not one child has ever been turned away or unable to partake in any of the activities that we facilitate, due to family financial inabilities. We provide for all, regardless!
Our goals in all that we do, is to give the urban kid in Baltimore, an opportunity to achieve and promote a healthy active lifestyle, and pursue his dreams of playing lacrosse. Through Blax Lax, we are doing what we can to counter some of what is lacking and what overwhelms this city...opportunities.
This year’s crop of lacrosse players are as enthused as years past. The highlight of our kids summer season, is the opportunity to participate in tournament competition. They understand that the testing of their talents and the opportunity to compete against perhaps stronger completion throughout these college recruiting tournaments, brings them closer to the possibility of playing at the next level.
Unfortunately, college lacrosse coaches very seldom do come to Baltimore City to recruit. Many of these tournaments, invite 100’s of college coaches. So in order for our kids to receive a fair chance, we must come to them.
We attempt to present the best opportunity for the Baltimore City youth lacrosse player during the summer and throughout the entire year.
If it were not for the Blax Lax organization over the past 13 years, there would have been a tremendous void of opportunities to the Baltimore City aspiring youth lacrosse player. Maintaining so much, becomes financially challenging. To assure that these opportunities continue flowing, we ask that you assist us by giving a donation for what we believe to be a  tremendous cause.
Whether you be a lacrosse enthusiast, one of many that are an alumni of this organization or parent of, or someone that simply just cares about these kids, as much as we do, please continue to support us with your contributions.
Your assistance is truly needed and appreciated.
