Play fast. Have fun. Develop your love for lacrosse by learning the fundamentals, gaining small full field game experience. Lightning Lax is for beginners but it is a game that can be played by the very best lacrosse players (think: playing at the beach, pick up with friends in the neighborhood, and so much more!). Every player will be instructed on the core fundamentals of lacrosse, including scooping ground balls, stick handling (cradling), passing and catching, and basic game play.


At the conclusion of your COSMO Lightning Lax experience we'll point you in the right direction to local boys and girls programs in north Colorado Springs, Monument, and south Douglas County.



Lightning Lax, now in its third year, continues to welcome new lacrosse players to the "Fastest Game on Two Feet".

New for Summer 2022: Experienced players welcome to come and play some "backyard lacrosse" with 4 vs 4 action that is played fast and will help each player grow their game, including "box" and field lacrosse skills/IQ.
