In 1988, Jimmy Darcangelo and his business partner Lance Holden embarked on an intrepid venture: they opened the nation’s first brick-and-mortar store dedicated exclusively to lacrosse. It was a risky and bold move. No one had ever done this before, but Jimmy and Lance believed that their store would thrive amid Maryland's bustling lacrosse community—and it did. Now, almost 30 years later, their legacy is standing stronger than ever. True to their legacy, Lax World supplies lacrosse players nationwide with the best selection of equipment on the market.
Headquartered in Cockeysville, MD, the core mission of Lax World is to help lacrosse players of all nationalities, ethnicities, and creeds both achieve and excel past their lacrosse goals. But anyone who knows the sport knows that outfitting a lacrosse player can sometimes be an expensive task. That's why Lax World is dedicated to spreading the sports of lacrosse and field hockey worldwide by offering top quality gear from established and upcoming brands at reasonable and accessible prices.
After 30 years of operating the business, Darcangelo passed the torch to a long time employee and a small group of new partners. Together, they share the objective of maintaining the long-standing company philosophy of top notch service. Today, Lax World operates a growing number of retail store locations across the US, along with a robust online store dedicated solely to providing the players of all skill levels, genders, and playing styles with the best in lacrosse equipment on the market. Stores in Maryland, Virginia, Colorado, Washington, and Georgia now cater to a diversity of local lacrosse communities, while the online store has allowed Lax World to share its commitment to quality customer service and focused expertise at the national and international scale.
Nobody does lacrosse better than Lax World. Three decades of expert leadership and dedicated customer service have turned our business into a well-engineered machine, operated by teams of friendly and attentive employees whose primary objectives are always to make sure that you get the gear that's right for you—on time, every time, and at an affordable price. A purchase from Lax World is a decision that you can always make with confidence.
