The Madlax National Program aims to offer 5th-12th grade boys from around the US and Canada an exciting and memorable lifetime lacrosse experience.
A goal is to provide Madlax National Team Members with a truly exceptional and memorable life experience beyond just great lacrosse. So, with that in mind, players will take part in unique non-lacrosse team building exercises (surfing, hiking, swimming, water-skiing, etc.), a longer, more focused elite training camp before each event, leadership seminars and special trips. We will still try to always compete in the most competitive tournaments in the country but we will also try to select events in unique locations like Lake Placid, NY, Vail, CO, Hershey, PA, Southern California and Florida. Coaches and Directors will emphasize the whole experience (not just wins) but especially creating friendships with teammates from across the country that will hopefully last at least through college. As greater emphasis is placed on being a good teammate and person and enjoying the high level lacrosse and coaching then the wins and championships will take care of themselves! It will always remain a huge honor to be selected so we want every Madlax National player to take pride in being selected to be part of our Madlax family and this exciting National Team approach.

Parents to Remember: Parents are always 100% responsible for their sons. Parents must oversee boys in between games and get boys to fields for practices and games at least 50-60 minutes early with all equipment and sticks. Behavior on and off the field must be exemplary. Boys must always be respectful everywhere and represent Madlax and your family well or risk being benched or even sent home. Coaches may set curfews if there are early games, so parents are asked to follow these easy requests.
Outside players not on a Madlax team who meet our criteria can now apply!
The Madlax NATIONALS Teams are comprised of the best 20-26 players per grade from ALL regional Madlax All-Star programs; Capital, Virginia, Maryland and Oregon. It also has players from our Partner Programs in Texas, Florida, Maryland, and Canada. Directors from Regional and Partner programs currently recommend their own players so players from those program do NOT need to apply. Players not on a Madlax team who meet our criteria MUST apply and can be selected as well.
A Madlax Selection Committee made up of all Madlax regional program directors and select coaches from regional and partner programs will choose the rosters for the teams and post each spring for the summer event and each fall for the winter event. Every recommendation and application is given a fair consideration and equal opportunity to have players considered. There is no official tryout so you need to be seen live or scouted by video. Players can be added or replaced at any point all year based on performance for your Madlax regional team or graduation year National Team.
You can also earn a coveted National Team roster spot in a few other ways:
1. GET NOTICED at a Madlax Showcase! Players that show their talent at a Madlax Showcase could be directly invited to join the National Team. Click Here for more information about Madlax Showcases.
2. National Team Tryouts - Attend a Madlax-Capital seasonal tryout (offered 2-3 times for each grade) with intention being evaluated for the National. Since so many players on the National teams play for Madlax-Capital we welcome players from around the country to attend any of our seasonal tryouts.
