About MaxLax Radio

The college guide podcast series is designed to help the prospective college lacrosse player get the information that he or she needs to make an informed decision when choosing a college. We are going to do this by going directly to the best source of information that we can think of – the players and coaches who have been there and done that. We’ll not only talk lacrosse but we will also get the inside scoop on the entire student-athlete experience that is unique to each program: campus life, academics, team culture, time management more.

The MaxLax college guide covers it all. Men and women. Coast to coast and club all the way up to D1. If you have any suggestions on players or coaches you think we should interview or maybe there’s an important question you think we should be asking, email us at and we’ll see what we can do.
