Once you make a regional program (California, Capital or Florida) the best players at each age will be recommended and considered for the national teams for each graduation year. We also have partner programs from Texas and Canada. Then, finally, the pinnacle is achieved if you are recommended and invited to play for the Madlax NATIONALS Team which is comprised of only 25-30 of the best players in any grade from any Madlax regional program.

Play With Passion - Madlax Coaches
The Madlax 2017 Orange team has had an impressive run thus far in 2015. The team competed in the King's Showcase, held in Golden Gate Park, January 10 & 11. Madlax finished with an untarnished record, winning the Championship Game in the Rising Stars/U17 Division, capped of with a 5-0 record.
The attack was led by Maxwell Pierce at X and demonstrated fantastic poise, attacking at the right times and slowing the pace after long defensive stands. Wins against East Bay Aces (13-2) and The Knights (8-4) proved how well the squad possessed there rock and controlled the gameplay. Defenders Matt Jackson and Conor Slevin anchored the defense, while freshmen LSM/FO/Defender Henry Tunney controlled the face-off X and pushed numerous transition opportunities. Zac Jacobsen led the midfield, ripping corners on a regular basis. The entire team contributed every game and the team's success could not have been so without all of the players!
Madlax 2017 Orange trucked down to Indio, California for the winter's premier lacrosse festival, Sandstorm. The tournament was held in beautiful Southern California, at the Empire Polo Club. The players took this two-day tournament as another test to show their ever evolving play. Madlax 2017 Orange went 4-1, placing 2nd in the competitive 2017 bracket. They took notable victories over 3d and Silverfin, with their sole blemish against the tournament runner-up Mad Dog Select.
Coach Klontz and Coach Richmond both offered terrific insight to the team's play thus far in 2015, "The team's success is centered on our defense's ability to limit our opponents to one possession and one chance on offense every time. When we hold true to this requirement, we are highly successful". Isaiah Blomgren took the majority of face-offs at Sandstorm, showing his continued improvement at the position. With a roster of 16, in hot and sunny weather, the team used their conditioning to outdo opponents and creative consistent opportunities in transition.
Madlax 2017 wrapped up the 2015 winter tournament season with a 9-1 record, with a large "goals for" advantage. Good luck to all of our players in their respective spring high school seasons! Look for Madlaxers to make some ripples this spring in the highly competitive MCAL and NCS divisions!
