Congratulations Wissahickon High School Ranked #9 in the 2014 US News & World Report Rankings of Pennsylvania High Schools !!!!!!!    and     Wissahickon High School Ranked #5 Pennsylvania High School in Washington Post's 2014 Survey of 'America's Most Challenging High Schools' !!!!
Wissahickon Boys Youth Lacrosse Club Inc., a Pennsylvania Nonprofit Corporation, (Wisslax) is a member of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Youth Lacrosse Association (SEPYLA) which arranges competition between Wisslax and neighboring community clubs.

 

Wisslax is a non-profit youth lacrosse organization which strives to teach the sport of lacrosse to boys who reside within the boundaries of the Wissahickon School District that are in grades 1 – 8 (youth programs) and 9-12 (high school programs).  Boys in the Methacton School District are also permitted by SEPYLA to participate in Wisslax youth programs, a waiver request must be sumbitted to SEPYLA in order to participate with Wisslax.  

Currently, Wisslax high school programs are subject to availability or invitation only and are limited to boys in grades 9 through 12 who attend Wissahickon High School.


Boys in grades 5 - 8 play a travel schedule, organized by SEPYLA (www.sepyla.org), and are placed on teams based on ability.
 

All boys in grades 1 – 4 participate in Wisslax’s intramural program which is designed to introduce new players to the game by integrating them with veteran 1st - 4th grade players.  This format has been proven in some of the most successful lacrosse communities to be the best way to increase level of play for beginners and get them up to speed at a rapid pace.

 

The primary season for Wisslax youth programs (grades 1-8) takes place in the spring from February to June, any fall or winter type programs are usually secondary and not part of the normal Wisslax program.

 

Wisslax is truly a community organization with a community focus of teaching the sport of lacrosse to the boys in our community.  Wisslax is always looking for volunteers so please let us know how you are willing to help.

REFUND POLICY:  The normal refund policy for Wisslax Boys is that there are NO REFUNDS.  Any exceptions to this policy will be made on a case by case basis by the current Board Members.

Summer FOGO I:  June 20th – 22nd; Gerstell Academy, Finksburg, Maryland
Summer FOGO II:  August 1st – 3rd; Gerstell Academy, Finksburg, Maryland
 
Summer camps will be run by Alex Smith and David Tamberrino and will
utilize their popular format focusing on face-off technique and heavy
competition.  Instruction ranges from the basics to the most advanced
face-off techniques currently being used in college and at theprofessional
level.  Additionally, attendees will be taught Alex’s signature pinch ‘n’
pop technique that helped him create offensive fast breaks and gave him
full control over the placement of the ball throughout his career.
 
The two camps to be held at Gerstell Academy will begin at 12:30pm on the
first day and end at 4pm on the final day to help allow for airport
travel.  Day campers will be available for pick-up at 6pm each day (except
the final day) and should return the following day at 8:45 am.  Overnight
attendees will stay at a local hotel with camp staff and will be bussed
back and forth.
 
Registration is open immediately for the camps in Maryland and the forms
can be found at the following link:

25 Lacrosse New Year Resolutions
by posted 01/01/2014
 

LACROSSE NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS - found on laxallstars.com

We've compiled a list of 25 things every young laxer should know and keep in mind. From the beginner to the aspiring Division I recruit, there something here for everyone.

 

1)     When shooting with your friends, don't stand around. Practice shooting on the run coming out of dodges. Time and room shots in games are few and far between.

 

2)     Work on your off hand. Only the elite talent/athlete gets by with one hand. Chances are you do not fall into that category.

 

3)     Celebrate with class. Thousands of players before you have scored more clutch goals than you. Act like you've been there before. Same thing goes for dog piling on the field after a win.

 

4)     Get low and use two hands on ground balls. Nothing makes you look softer than a failed one-handed scoop in traffic.

 

5)     Just put the ball in the net. You can be the kid with 3 goals in the box score or the the kid with 1 goal, a missed behind the back, and a sweet crank that missed top cheddar. Overhand and off hip work well.

 

6)     Respect your coaches. You may not be the All-American you think you are. Make eye contact when your coaches are talking and keep your mouth shut. You might learn something.

 

7)     String yourself a nice gamer and a good backup if possible and be done with it. Don't try to keep up with the Jones's and feel like you always need the next best thing. Spend that time and energy working on your fitness and skills.

 

8)     If you are on a budget, buy last year's head and shaft on sale. You'll get great deals on products that are not much different than the latest and greatest. Spend your money on a good pocket.

 

9)     If you limit your circle of friends to only other lacrosse players, you're doing yourself a disservice. The lax bro culture isn't very cultured at all. Be your own person.

 

10)Be responsible for your gear, uniform, cleats, mouthpiece, etc. Take inventory well in advance of practice and make sure you have everything you need. Police up your gear after the game. Mom and dad work too hard to pay for replacement gear you lost track of because you were too busy squirting water on your teammates after practice.

 

11)Getting stripped of the ball creates a sinking feeling. It happens to everyone. Don't sulk, work to get the ball back. There's nothing worse than seeing a kid hang his head and kick rocks instead of getting after the ball that is five feet away.

 

12)Recognize that lacrosse is a team sport. When a teammate is open, get the ball to that player regardless of who it is. Make good decisions and let the coach worry about who he puts on the field.

 

13)Take pride in the little things. If you're an attackman, ride hard. If you're a middie, play tough "D". If you play defense, move your feet and value position over the home run check. Hopefully, you're trying to help your team, not make a highlight reel.

 

14)Respect your parents. Being disrespectful to your parents reflects poorly on you and embarrasses your family. Your parents don't owe you anything.

 

15)Don't be a twit on Twitter, Facebook, etc. It is mind boggling what kids will put out on the internet for public consumption. Don't let a screenshot of an ill-advised internet rant ruin you. It has and will continue to do just that to all too many kids who post before thinking.

 

16)If it were up to most kids, they would always have new gear and clothes. Not everyone is in a position to indulge in the latest and greatest. Be deeper than judging a kid based on their appearance. Judge kids for what kind of teammate or person they are.

 

17)Don't be a black hole. No matter how good you think you are, your teammates don't want to see you dodge through double and triple teams while passing up good looks to open players, whether you score or not.

 

18)Show up to practice (on time) with the mindset that you are going to work to get better, not just because it's what you have to do. Push yourself.

 

19)Lacrosse is a small community. Act the fool, be un-coachable, or have meddling parents and you'll find it tough to shake that reputation.

 

20)From time to time, a coach is going to correct, yell, or bench you. Justified or not, get used to it and be open to the fact that you may not be as good as you (or your parents) think you are.

 

21)Stick tricks will do wonders for your game. You'll wonder where your playing time went because you were wasting time trying to perfect the "Triple Lindy" or something equally ridiculous, instead of working on actual skills.

 

22)Don't twirl or spin your stick. It's a horrible habit that some kids can't shake. A kid who can't move the ball quickly because he has to twirl his stick every time he touches the ball will be twirling his flow on the sideline instead.

 

23)Put as much time getting your body in shape as you do on honing your stick skills. Those stick skills don't mean a whole lot if you're gassed after 10 minutes.

 

24)Play other sports. This has been said before, ad nauseam, because it's true.

 

25)Have fun and play because you enjoy the game.
