"DEWLAX is not an ordinary lacrosse tournament program: It is extraordinary. Girls learn lacrosse fundamentals and the game, but it teaches them so much more. They learn to be a true team player. They learn to put in 100% regardless of being at practice or a game. Most importantly they gain life skills. On time is 15 minutes early, always be prepared, always put in 100%, work as a team, and use constructive criticism to develop strengths and weaknesses.
The coaching staff is so supportive of the girls through encouragement and constructive feedback.
DEWLAX fosters a spirit where the girls enjoy playing together and build each others confidence and skills.
Coach Dwayne is a great motivator and takes the time to get to know each and every girl. He makes every girl feel special. He devotes so much time to the girls between practices, weekend tournaments and assisting with college letters and phone calls. His guidance is fantastic. His demeanor & presence results in that every College Coach knows Coach Dwayne from DEWLAX. He helps position the girls in the best possible light to give them the opportunity to play for whatever school they desire. If you put in the work on the field, Coach Dwayne will go the distance to help you reach your dreams.
I would highly recommend DEWLAX. It is truly one family. Our daughter Sadie thrived at DEWLAX and is prepared to play Division 1 lacrosse at American University in the Fall."

"I want to let you know that our daughter had a great time with the team this summer and so did I. A lot of sports talk a good game but few deliver. DEWLAX definitely delivered, as there was development, discipline, and desire taught to the girls. Most important, an awesome atmosphere!
Great program, great team and great parents"
Tony D, Bridgewater, NJ
"The Quick Camp was very organized, the girls were constantly on task. I liked how the coaches explained what they look for during tryouts, and what makes a good lacrosse player."

“I just wanted to let you know that I have officially signed DI with Longwood University. I want to thank you for all of your help over the past couple years. You have really helped me grow as a goalie and person. You taught me lessons about lacrosse and life in general. You have given me memories that I will always cherish. Thank you for pushing me to play harder and email coaches. It really did pay off in the end. Thank you for helping me get recruited to Longwood because without you I wouldn't be going there. Thank you so much for everything Coach!
Imani W, Maplewood, NJ
"I have to tell you, I came home one day and my 6th grade son was in the back yard practicing and when I asked him what he was doing (because he never practices) he said he heard this coach coaching girls on a certain technique and he said, "Mom - IT WORKED!". That coach was a DEWLAX Coach. I've had an opportunity to observe your coaches as well and you all have unique abilities to connect with every single player on the team. My kids have played competitive sports for years and it is refreshing to see your DEWLAX staff in action."
Parent from Madison, NJ
“The recruiting webinar was excellent! There are many rules and regulations around this important topic and you made it clear and simple to understand for all. It is great to have my daughter in a program that truly cares about her. We all want to win, but what is more important is that they are getting better through hard work every time the girls take the DEWLAX field.”
Jon T, Maplewood, NJ
“I can't thank you enough for all that you have done for Jillian. I really wish we would have met you years ago. The improvements I've seen in her are great, and I believe she owes it all to you. You have a way of pushing her, without her even realizing it. I don't believe she would have even been considered to play at a college level if we didn't find you last year. We are just beyond grateful.”
Barbie F, Bridgewater, NJ
“We are very excited to be a part of your program. The philosophy and positive coaching/team building ideas are a breath of fresh air!

“The coaches were serious, but I learned more than anywhere else I’ve played and they made it a lot of fun!”

"I can't believe that was a newer club we just played! They were really well coached, the girls played like a team, and were very organized. That was a good game."

"I just wanted to thank you for a great season for our daughter. She has gained so much confidence and has a stronger love for the game. You have such a nice balance between having fun with the girls and also setting high expectations. We appreciate all of the individualized attention you give each and every girl. It has made a very positive impact on her. We had signed her up for a another camp several months ago with a few of her friends...She came out of the camp the first day and her exact words were: "Mom, I dominated today! I cannot believe how much better I have gotten. The instructor asked me if I played Club Lacrosse." She was beaming! We knew she had more in her than she was showing on the field and somehow you were able to get that out of her :)!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is such a pleasure to see her improving, wanting to do and learn more AND TAKING RISKS!!"
Jodi F Chatham, NJ
"A big thanks to you and the coaches for a great tournament experience. My girls have played with other top rated travel programs in the area, have gone to tournament finals and won championships with those clubs. This was our first tournament with DEWLAX, so I asked them on the ride home which program they want to play with this summer. The answer was a resounding DEWLAX!! When I asked why, they said, "DEWLAX is so much more fun! The focus is about playing your best all of the time, and winning will follow - we are not so focused on the score!!" I loved their response and was really proud of them for the maturity in their answer. I want to thank you and all of the coaches for encouraging the girls to always play to their best, and never, ever give up. These are life-long lessons that I am so proud they are learning at such a young age."
Marc D Plainfield, NJ
"Our daughter had a BLAST! You were dead on with your instruction - very organized and enthusiastic, to say the least! WOW! You clearly have a great training program. Thank you for a great experience!!
Elizabeth S Saddle River, NJ
“I am grateful to you and your program. My daughter is getting so much out of the DEWLAX experience, which far exceeds skill and knowledge on a lacrosse field. She is learning teamwork, dedication, discipline, listening skills and modesty. She is learning people skills; both how to interact with her peers and authority. She is learning commitment and the results and rewards of hard work. She is also gaining confidence, strength and maturity. I believe your teaching methods are great as well as your commitment to all of the girls. There is a true sense of team, partnering and respect among the girls….Thank you for creating an opportunity that affords her the environment to do this. We will certainly keep coming back for as long as we have girls and you will have them. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.”
J.T.C. Ho-ho-kus, NJ

“Thanks for a wonderful June season. The team, coaches and girls were great. My daughter learned a lot and had lots of fun…”.
Andrew S. Brooklyn, NY
“My daughter learned so much about the sport! Her skills improved, especially understanding the need to be able to cradle/throw left and right and I have to tell you, my daughter plays other competitive sports and this is the best run program we have ever been a participant. Communication has been GREAT!
Ali R. Cranford, NJ
“Thank you for a terrific lacrosse experience. Speaking for my daughter, she certainly grew as a lax player, enjoyed being with her teammates, coaches and loved the fast pace and intensity…we will be ready for the Fall!”
Ed D. Berkeley Heights, NJ
“You and your coaching staff did a fantastic job training these girls in such a disciplined, positive manner while making it fun….Your passion, commitment and motivation skills are undeniable. You are a role model not only for the players, but for all coaches at every level for all sports.”
John S. New Providence, NJ
“I liked the clear, consistent communication….liked the positive attitude and accountability.
Alex H. Randolph, NJ
“You did a great job Dwayne. You are one of the best I’ve seen…you taught my daughter how to be tougher, stronger, contributing player without the ball. All your work on team building, groundballs, doubles, defensive and offensive strategy, program culture was really impressive and valued.”
