Springboarding off a World Championship in their inaugural NLL season, The Washington Stealth and walax.com have just announced an eight week training camp for box lacrosse, geared towards youth players in Washington state. Featuring instruction and coaching by members of the Stealth, players will learn from the best in the world.
“We’ve been bombarded with requests since the Stealth started playing games” said Fred Wilmot, Director of walax.com, “and we’re happy to team up with them to make this happen. It’s yet another step in the ongoing evolution of the sport in this region.” Committed so far are Lewis Ratcliff (Championship MVP), Jason Bloom, Rhys Duch, Chris O’Dougherty and Head Coach Chris Hall.
Washington State, like many areas of the country, is a burgeoning hotbed of lacrosse, featuring explosive growth at the youth and high school levels. It was this existing, strong community that inspired the Washington Stealth to relocate from the San Jose area.
“Now that we’ve introduced the region to the thrilling and fast-paced sport of professional indoor lacrosse,” said Stealth GM Doug Locker, “we were looking for a way to let kids participate. We jumped at the opportunity to join up with walax.com. Fred and his crew are hugely responsible for the success of lacrosse in Washington.”
