St. Louis Lax, previously known as QC Lax Midwest, has been operating in the St. Louis, Missouri area since the Fall of 2001 when we started a girls indoor lacrosse program to offer team scrimmages as a means of a preseason conditioning program, similar to the programs that the boys lacrosse teams were participating in at other St. Louis indoor sports facilities in the area.
In the Summer of 2002, St. Louis Lax began offering the Summer Lacrosse League at the AB Soccer Park in Fenton, Missouri for high school boys and girls and a collegiate and post collegiate lacrosse league for men and women. This Summer lacrosse league still continues today with nearly 1,000 participants of all ages, during the months of June, July and August annually. St. Louis Lax also has sponsored women's lacrosse teams in the annual Vail Colorado Lacrosse Shootout in the past two years.
In addition to the lacrosse sports programs St. Louis Lax is also the licensed representative for QC Lax of Bridgeville, PA in the Pittsburgh area for all major suppliers of lacrosse equipment, and can provide individual players, teams and schools with the same quality of lacrosse equipment at the lowest total cost to any family in St. Louis including the UPS shipping cost from PA.
Also, St. Louis Lax is the sole representative for the premiere uniform manufacturer, LacrosseWear, Inc. in the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area, and has provided uniforms to Fontbonne University, CBC, Wentzville, Vianney, Eureka, Webster Groves, Ft. Zumwalt, Lindbergh, O'Fallon IL, the St. Louis Samurai's and other programs with our low cost and high quality "dye sublimation" process of uniform manufacturing, with any design and pattern that the team requires in the highest and brightest quality of colors.
You can see that St. Louis Lax is a one stop provider of all of your lacrosse needs and a strong supporter to the St. Louis Lacrosse community, and with this new website we hope to be a communication link for anyone seeking information about the sport of lacrosse in the St. Louis, Missouri area.

St. Louis Lax is celebrating its 20th year of operating Lacrosse leagues in the St. Louis, Missouri area. Our founder Marc Garcia (Pappy) wanted to give both boys and girls all over St. Louis a place to continue to play lacrosse in the offseason. Pappy’s favorite night of the year was always the start of the summer league that was hosted at Soccer Park and he loved spending his summer nights out there buying beer for parents and watching the growth of lacrosse in St. Louis.
Now in our 20th year and partnering with Lou Fusz, we are continuing to host leagues that we are sure Pappy would be proud of. In 20 years of St. Louis Lax we have never raised our rates and continue to work with families and teams to provide financial options so that no one is missing out on lacrosse because of financial reasons. The Lacrosse community has been very great and has unbelievable growth over the last 20 years with more and more players playing NCAA lacrosse and we at St. Louis Lacrosse are very proud to be a part of the lacrosse family in this great city.
