JUPLAX GIRLS AND BOYS TRAVEL LACROSSE
There is no charge for our tryouts but you must be registered
Tryouts Registration Opens mid August 2019
JTAA Lacrosse is pleased to announce the 2019 Fall season of JUPLAX travel lacrosse.
This travel program is designed for girls and boys who want to continue to play at the travel level in the traditional summer and fall seasons without the inconvenience and major expense of traveling to out of state tournaments. JTAA Lacrosse JUPLAX offers girls and boys the opportunity to compete against other competitive players in tournaments in our own backyard.
The affordable registration fee for each season will include 3 local tournaments, approximately 15 practices per team here in Jupiter, uniforms, and practice pinnies.
We promise to have regular communication with parents and guardians so you will always know where, when, why, and how much. You will deal with us, not some out of state entity who doesn't really know you or your child.
We will compete in the traditional travel lacrosse seasons. The Summer season will be April, May, and June, and the Fall season will be mid September through early December. You are not obligated to play both seasons. Play one season or both.
The mission of this travel lacrosse program is clear. Make travel lacrosse fun and affordable again. The kids want to keep playing once the rec season is over. The parents want to stay closer to home. We’ve heard you loud and clear. We know the need is there so we made it happen.
Our inaugural 2018 seasons were a big success. 2018 is turning out to be even better. 3 local tournaments. Low cost. No long distance travel. The new and reasonable travel lacrosse.

John Aiello and John Simmonds launched the idea of JupLax in 2017 because they saw a need for a different type of travel team, local to the area. They have both been involved with lacrosse since their own middle school years and have been coaching girls lacrosse in Jupiter since 2010.
