Swax Lax balls are designed to be bounce-resistant, and while this no-bounce quality might seem like it would make Swax Lax balls hard to use with rebounders, the truth is, the balls work really well. Players may just need to stand a little closer to the rebounder when using a Swax Lax ball instead of a traditional lacrosse ball.
Playing with a Swax Lax ball makes it less likely players will get an unexpected jolt to the face, or that a dreaded missed pass will result in a sudden chase after the ball.
But, don’t take our word for it, watch Swax Lax in action with a rebounder (no actors involved, real lacrosse players only!):
So, if you’re fortunate to have Swax Lax swag and a rebounder nearby, you’re in luck. Start practicing, and no worries, if you’re not as prepared as you thought you were, you’ll save yourself a bruise or two. And, don’t be afraid to practice with your non-dominant hand —it, literally, can’t hurt to try!
Please note: Swax Lax balls are well-suited for rebounders; they do not work well for wall ball.
