Johnny Christmas, Lax Santa


Johnny Christmas

Last December, Johnny Christmas announced his intention to sit out the 2009 NLL season in order to focus on the founding of LEAPS, his non-profit program designed to educate kids in inner city Philadelphia about the game of lacrosse and the importance of positive thinking. Since then LEAPS (Lacrosse, Education, Attitude, Perseverance, Success) has grown into an extremely reputable program, providing underprivileged kids with the opportunity to throw on pads and learn life lessons through the sport of lacrosse.

Johnny Christmas is his name, and he’s giving the gift of lacrosse. Coincidence? I think not.

Founder of Lacrosse All Stars. A West Coast native and product of the MCLA, I moved back East after college where I truly fell in love with the game. I've dedicated my career to LaxAllStars since 2010, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I now live in my hometown of Boise, Idaho, with my wife Zoë, two dogs, and a baby girl expected to arrive around Championship Weekend this May. I'm a technologist at heart, I'm not into snow or the month of January, and one time I kind of stole a football from Gary Gait. Life is crazy busy, but it's worth it when you get to immerse yourself in the medicine of lacrosse every day. We are on a mission to Grow The Game® on a global scale by empowering storytelling by players, for players, and bridging the gap between lacrosse and the mainstream.
