What I Do
LaxRecords.com aims to compile the best known records in high school lacrosse. Among the lists are the most career wins by a high school lacrosse coach. Also included are most career points, goals, assists and saves by a high school lacrosse player. Team performances for most state sanctioned championships and consecutive wins are also tracked.
Some records are known to be incomplete. I solicit help from the lacrosse community to fill the missing gaps. If there is a performance or player missing, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a Tweet at @LaxRecords.

US Lacrosse has produced a participation report annually since 2001, and over that time span the number of players has grown 204 percent, from 253,901 to 772,772. This survey counts only play on organized teams, and does not count leisure-time play of the sport.
