About the Inventor and Founder, Laura Gump
Laura Gump seized on a passion for the sport of lacrosse by founding two highly successful companies: Swax Lax Lacrosse Camps and Clinics and Swax Lax. Laura is a longtime youth lacrosse coach who currently coaches at Kent Place School in Summit, New Jersey and at her own company, Swax Lax Lacrosse, which, for more than 11 years, has offered camps and clinics for roughly 1,000 K-10th grade girls and boys every year. It was her experience coaching new players and very young players — as well as accidentally hitting her own 4th grade daughter in the face while teaching her to catch in the backyard — that she came up with the idea for a new product that she turned into another business.
Swax Lax lacrosse training balls are the exact same weight and size as a hard rubber lacrosse ball, only a lot softer. After less than four years, Laura’s patented product is now seen as a game-changer for the sport and is hailed by coaches, players and parents because it’s the perfect training tool for new players of all ages enabling them to learn stick skills with more confidence and less fear. The balls are also ideal for indoor training since the balls don’t bounce or harm hardwood gym floors. More than 800 stores in the US, Canada, and the UK now carry the product, and teams at all levels, including Duke and UVA, use the balls at their practices.

The Goalie Kit consists of 3 numbered balls so goalies can use the numbered panels for specific goalie training drills that force goalies to improve their ability to track the balls in the air.
