And as we always say at Madlax... Play with Passion!  - Madlax


Madlax, Inc. started as two retail 'corners' in two stores in northern VA in 1996 by Cabell Maddux, an All-American Attackman and two-time National Champion at Hobart College, who saw a need for the first lacrosse specialty store in the greater DC area.  Madlax opened it's own full scale retail store in 1997. Maddux, the MVP of the 1993 NCAA National Championship, the last title Hobart College won, opened up four retail stores in the DC area before deciding to focus on the Madgear Apparel Line, the online store and the national lacrosse programs. Maddux was a head or assistant coach at one college and three DC area high schools from 1995-2010 and was named DC area 'Coach of the Year' in 2004. In 1997, Maddux founded Madlax Lacrosse Camps, Inc. which coordinates all of the Madlax lacrosse programs: All-Stars Academy, Camps, Clinics, Tournaments and Leagues for boys and girls. The name Madlax is a combination of his last name (Mad) and the abbreviation of the word lacrosse (Lax). Today Madlax operates regional lacrosse programs in Maryland, Virginia, DC and Oregon. Madlax also has partner programs in Texas, Oregon, Michigan, Georgia, Maryland and Edmonton, Canada.
