Laura Gump
Laura Gump founded Swax Lax Lacrosse in 2008 with the mission of encouraging girls and boys to become more self-confident through the sport of lacrosse. When she’s not directing at Swax Lax Lacrosse, she leads the Kent Place Middle School Lacrosse team and is the inventor behind Swax Lax Lacrosse Training Balls — the first and only soft lacrosse training balls that are the exact same size and weight of a regulation lacrosse ball. Laura is committed to growing the sport and increasing a lacrosse player’s confidence at every level.
