How Capital & DMV All-Star Teams Work:

  • In the spring all players (new and returning) must attend all tryouts for their grade. 
  • We will create either 2 teams per grade. Ideally, we will have one Madlax-Capital and Madlax-DMV team per grade.  Registration and talent at tryouts will determine the teams. 
  • The best players from Maryland, Virginia & DC will be invited for Madlax-Capital which is a AAA level team and one of the best teams in the nation. DMV teams are A level teams and are some of the best teams in the region.  
  • Madlax-Capital will have a different schedule year round than Madlax-DMV.  
  • Invites for Madlax-Capital Start January 1, 2018 for current players and continue after tryouts for "NEW" players until Madlax-Capital rosters are full.
  • DMV players are often "called up" throughout the year!  Madlax-Capital players can be moved to DMV as well at any point. These decision are made by the Madlax Coaching staff weekly and will all be based on skill, attitude, commitment and passion.

Parents Roles in Madlax All-Stars


You Should be Proud!

Your son just made a very, very strong lacrosse program and is going to get a lot better this spring and summer if he commits and works hard. He is a talented and athletic young man and has a very bright future. Now that he has made it I want to remind returning parents and inform new parents of how we see your roles ideally in Madlax All-Stars.

Stay Positive and Supportive!

We know it's an exciting time to watch your boys play on game day and it can be frustrating at times, trust me, we know. All coaches are trained, experienced and understand the game at a high level having played and/or coached at the collegiate level. We have specific training plan and goals within each team. We simply ask that you are always trusting and supportive of the coaches. If you have an issue with a coach please email the directors but never address a coach right after a game or directly. 

By being supportive of Madlax and the coaches and understanding and trusting of our process you're helping the boys develop their passion for the game of lacrosse. You are also making it such a more fun environment for them to play in.  Although Madlax plays the best players to win in league games and playing time is never guaranteed (read written playing time policy here), we are not a win at all cost club. In fact, it is more important that we are developing the boys skills and overall understanding of the lacrosse while acting in line with our C.A.S.E. initiative. Ideally we are enabling the boys to have fun while they work hard to improve. There is a greater chance of this happening for your sons if you stay positive and supportive! 

Don't talk to your son or coach from the sideline.

When the parents scream 'SHOOT!' or 'PASS!' or "Just RUN!" it is distracting and confusing for them. Often times it is just plain wrong and frustrating for coaches. It's hard not to get caught up in it for players this young. It is VERY hard. We get that. We know we even have some parents who have played college lacrosse but even those parents must refrain from coaching and speaking to your sons. Talk with your sons all you want after the game or before but please...NOTHING during the game. Let him learn and enjoy the experience on his own. Also please never stand on the bench sideline or on the endline if possible. We would also strongly encourage you that when you do speak with your son about lacrosse that it is positive and about his effort and attitude more than about plays or mistakes he made on the field. You will burn him out if that is all he hears and he just wont want to play anymore for risk of being scolded in the car ride home. Try to celebrate assists more than goals, ground balls more than hits and being coachable and a good teammate more than anything else. 

THANK YOU!

We understand you are making a sacrifice and taking a lot of time and spending a lot of money in having your sons play Madlax. We take this fact seriously and therefore try to maximize our time with them. The players who commit and attend the most will have the greatest experiences. Thank you for bringing them to every practice and game and taking on these simple roles as a Madlax parent. Please communicate early and often if you have to miss something or be late for academic or personal reasons. We look forward to a fun and very successful season coaching your boys!

ENJOY the Season! 

Play with Passion,
Cabell Maddux
