Madlax-Capital is the premier program in the greater DC area and attends only the most elite invitational tournaments and all-star events! You have to play for Madlax if you want to attend the best events that NO other clubs in the DC area attend.
Madlax participates in the most elite invitational recruiting tournaments in the country every summer. Madlax is the only DC area team to be part of the Black Card Showcase, Adrenaline Platinum Cup, NLF Championship, CrabFeast. Again, no other travel boys club in the greater DC area attends all of these prestigious tournaments. Be sure to read details about our All-Stars Academy and NATIONAL TEAM opportunities. If you want to play on our National Team you must make a Madlax-Capital All-Star team. There is not a higher level of club lacrosse played in the country then you will find on our National Teams.
See you at tryouts in late May!
TRYOUTS START Tuesday, May 30, 2017! They will continue through Thursday, June 8th for those who are still in season or out of town.
Attendance is required for all new and returning players at tryouts & practices for your grade. We actually run these tryouts like practices as we evaluate players to create new teams and start putting in offenses and defenses since the season starts early June. If you have to miss for academics or injury please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can likely accommodate you in a practice.
Note: The Madlax All-Stars start of the year is June, not August, like many other clubs. Our season is June 1, 2017 - May 31, 2018.
So, if your son plays summer 2017 season he is AUTOMATICALLY promised a roster spot on a Madlax All-Star team in the fall of 2017. This means he does NOT need to attend tryouts for any other program in late August knowing he is already accepted and part of the best program in the DC area again next school year!
Since we start the summer season so early these tryouts are actually practices so they are all required by all players in each respective grade. Please see entire summer team calendar on your team page once you know which team you are placed. Each team page shows practices, tournaments, rosters and more.

You Should be Proud!
Your son just made a very, very strong lacrosse program and is going to get a lot better this 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.
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, Founder & Pres.
