WESTFIELD, IN— MAX LAX, a Central Indiana-based lacrosse league, has selected the Grand Park Events Center as the home of its fall and winter indoor programs and also has become the Official Indoor Lacrosse Provider of the state-of-the-art indoor facility.
“We’re excited to welcome MAX LAX to the Grand Park Events Center,” said Westfield Mayor Andy Cook. “Their wide array of indoor lacrosse offerings will bring year-round visitors to Grand Park in addition to the 1.5 million visits we already experience on an annual basis.”
The Grand Park Events Center offers a realistic, large-field game experience and training environment for MAX LAX players in a safe facility. The 370,000 square-foot building opened in 2016 in Westfield, Indiana, and is ideal for lacrosse, one of the fastest-growing sports for girls and boys in the United States.
“This amazing facility will allow lacrosse players to take their offseason game to the next level,” said Sharon Balek, co-owner of MAX LAX. “Whether this is your first time playing lacrosse, or you have been playing travel lacrosse for years, MAX LAX and Grand Park are the places to be to maximize your lacrosse potential.”
MAX LAX has offered leagues and programs to lacrosse players ranging from elementary school to adult for the last 10 years. MAX LAX also offers a highly competitive adult men’s travel team called Team Max.
MAX LAX offers programs at the Grand Park Events Center for players in first grade through adult, with instruction from former collegiate players for boys and girls ages first to eighth grade. The fall session is from October to December, and the winter session is from January to March. MAX LAX welcomes players to register now for the fall session.
