Dear Players, Parents, Coaches, and Boosters,
We were all shocked to hear about the tragic loss of Coach Jim Cox this past Friday. Coach Cox was very close to the heart of Merritt Island lacrosse and lacrosse in Brevard County as a whole. Coach Jim was involved with the Merritt Island Youth and high school programs, but also the Landsharks and other Brevard county teams as well. Most likely he either directly or indirectly coached many of our current and former players. He was not only a coach to many of us, but he was a faithful husband and loving dad. His death is a reminder that life is fragile and lacrosse is just game, but it is a game that unites us and makes us family. As you know, when something happens within our lacrosse family, we rally to their support. I want to share with you a way that you can support the Cox family.
Let me encourage you to honor his memory and support his family by providing a financial gift through the following link. There you will get to know Coach Cox a little better and be able to make a donation to help his family. I encourage you to take a minute and help Jim's family during this difficult time. Please remember this, when it comes to Lacrosse in Brevard County, we are all ONE family: https://www.gofundme.com/JimCoxFund
LAX4GOOD is having its first canned food drive of the year on Saturday, Sept. 10th from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Melbourne Beach Publix.
All donations directly help a Brevard Public high school food pantry assisting students and their children in need. Please come out and donate a canned good or baby food. We'll gladly accept your BOGO. Thank you!!

College Coach signs Two Brevard Lax District Players!
Sebastian River's Kendall Holycross and Rockledge High School goalie Zoey Guignardi committed to play lacrosse at Mount Olive, a Division II school in North Carolina that in the third year of the program is already ranked in the top 20 nationally.
Guignardi has ranked statistically among the best high school goalies in the country, her save percentage in the top 10 nationally three straight years on the MaxPrep.com charts. She led the nation as a junior. There is no question if she becomes a star at Mount Olive, colleges will flock to Brevard.
