In the spring Girls MadLax All Star teams will compete in the National Girls Lacrosse League (NGLL) Virginia Division. The NGLL-VA provides a high level of regional competition for players in fourth through eighth grade. For the 2019 season, over 120 teams will compete in the Mid-Atlantic region, as well as the SouthEast and MidWest. We will compete in the newly formed Virginia Division.
Depending on numbers and skill, some All Star grades will field two teams - Capital plays in the elite division while DMV competes in the A or B division. The NGLL is comprised of A and B divisions for each age group.
If your daughter is new and wants to tryout for Madlax All-Stars we welcome her to register and attend tryouts. Spring tryouts will afford every player a fresh chance to make Capital or DMV. We are always searching for new athletic players. We want the most athletic girls in the region because our coaching staff will develop their skills and overall game understanding (IQ). Specifically, we want girls who will work hard, are motivated, fast, tough and coordinated. The girls will be challenged to achieve at very high levels. Madlax coaches are specifically trained and all utilize similar teaching techniques that focus on advanced individual skill development. In March a considerable time is spent focusing on positional improvement. A similar and unique team system is taught and carefully implemented by each team to our 3rd-8th grades. Although 8th graders will be doing far more advanced concepts within each offense and defense than the 3rd & 4th graders, the same general formations and concepts are taught so that there is continuity and consistency from season to season and year to year and most importantly from coach to coach. That foundation enables a higher level of team success on the field during competition.
So, if your daughter is one of the better players on her town recreational team then MADLAX All-Stars is perfect for her. Madlax is recognized as one of the premier programs in the country and so we are looking for the area's best players and athletes to tryout and join us. Spring is a PERFECT time to join Madlax-Capital All-Stars if you are new. You will represent the greater DC area on a regional elite team that competes at the highest youth level in the country.
Our experienced and outstanding Madlax coaches will also emphasize our CASE (Character, Attitude, Success, Effort) initiative to the players in every practice and game. This is an added value found only in the Madlax program.
Madlax-Capital is an elite lacrosse option for the best 3rd through 8th grade girls who want to broaden their lacrosse skills and future opportunities. Players will be challenged in every practice. Whether you are in 3rd grade or in 8th grade we want the best athletes who want to get better, play with the best players in the area and succeed at the high school and college level. Madlax spring season can be in place of or in addition to your town/rec league team but you must understand our policy on practice and games and playing time. We allow our players to play for their town Rec teams but Madlax must be the priority if there is a conflict for practices or games. Practices and games for Madlax-Capital teams are required (if you make one of these teams). If you have a legitimate conflict please email our Director, firstname.lastname@example.org, in advance of the season. We want all great players to be afforded the opportunity to play. We are flexible but parents must communicate potential conflicts early before the season starts.
Generally, your daughters will get way more out of our Madlax practices then rec practices as our practices are all uptempo, intense, challenging and far more advanced. We also provide specific positional coaching for goalies. Failure to attend practices or games may jeopardize your playing time and your position in the academy. Playing time is at the discretion of the head coach but generally we play to win and the best players will always play the most. Please read our written and detailed playing time philosophy here, www.madlax.com/allstars. If we can play everyone and win comfortably we will do so. The directors, coaches and staff, sincerely appreciate your commitment as parents to get your sons to practices and games!
