About the Inventor and Founder, Laura Gump

Laura Gump Founder SWAX LAX

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 12 years, has offered camps and clinics for roughly 1,000 K-6th 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.

Additional Products Created by Swax Lax

The Pro-Grip shares all of the same features as the original ball, but it uses a fabric with a grippier texture, giving advanced players the extra precision they need for throwing and shooting.

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.

The SWAX LAX Power Weights is a weighted device that easily fits on the head of almost every type of lacrosse stick (not warp heads). Use to strengthen lacrosse-specific muscles and improve stick work. Doesn’t interfere with shaft or pocket when passing, catching, scooping, dodging, or shooting.

10 reviews for SWAX LAX Lacrosse Training Ball – Same Size & Weight as Regulation Lacrosse Ball but Soft – Indoor Outdoor Practice Ball with

  1. KozKnowz

    Great for tossing without all of the running after missed balls…Love this purchase!! Regular balls roll down the block when missed. This one is so much more forgiving when simply playing catch and practicing.

  2. Joshua Bradley

    Nice overallSlightly expensive but I get it.

  3. Annemarie

    Great for practice, travel and indoorsNothing quite sucks like getting hit with your kids lacrosse ball during practice. It flat out hurts and will often leave a mark. After missing a catch – I was in need a more friendly practice ball. This fit the bill and has a cool design to boot. Son loves it and I am happy to come away from practice sessions without unintentional injury.

  4. Anthony Broderick

    Use it with my 4-6 year old team I coach for passing, shooting, line drills.Little worried about the durability but has held up well so far. We bought 24 balls for our kindergarten/1st grade team (no pads) and just use it for passing & shooting drills. Little too hard for little kids w/o pads to play a scrimmage or game with. Great training tool for youth lacrosse players

  5. Mow sauce

    THE ULTIMATE, if you have 🥬 but no swax, do you even lax?Get it! Great for indoor play/practice

  6. Dad jokes

    Using it as a stress ballNot using it for the intended purpose but enjoying it as a stress ball. Nice weight in the hand and seems to have the slightest give when squeezed.

  7. Netharlan

    Great for starting outI am not, and will never be a Lacrosse pro, so I can’t say if this is a good way to learn tossing the ball back and forth. I can say that my nephew is less scared of this softer ball, catching it by hand is less painful, and it doesn’t travel as far down the road when you don’t catch it. I consider those three things to aid in practice enough to be worth the investment.

  8. Aspen Coates

    Not a death sphereI don’t reviewed but this ball was one of those rare times I purchased something and it was everything I ever wanted something to be. Lacrosse balls are basically death spheres when a 6 year old is involved so I was looking for something different to help teach my son. Teaching a kid Lax with a tennis ball seems like it’s more time consuming than necessary due to how light the balls are. I found these Swax balls and they are exactly what I hoped for. They weight the same as a lacrosse ball but are not nearly as scary getting thrown around by an out control 6 year old when compared to the sheer terror a real lacrosse ball creates. Because the balls weigh more than tennis balls my son improved dramatically in catching, throwing and scooping almost immediately. As an added bonus the Swax ball is basically a large stuffed hackysack and because of that it does not roll forever when my son misses a catch. The amount of time this saves the kid from endlessly running after the ball is a subtle yet powerful benefit.The Swax balls make for a very efficient backyard short and long toss. This is the perfect ball for beginners or just people who want to wreak less havoc with a lacrosse ball.

  9. C. Frazer

    Great product! No bounce, no lost ball!These are a must if you have a lacrosse player! They don’t bounce, so you don’t have to chase the ball down the road! Same size and weight as a lacrosse ball, so they are great for training, and practicing at home.

  10. C W Kluczynski

    Generally good, but the one I received was defectiveI returned the one I received. Normally these are great, as I have a few I have purchased for kids practice. The one I received however had a plastic strap on it like a brand new one would but the entire surface looked like it had been used for months on wet conditions.
