Providing An Atmosphere of Lacrosse Training That Empowers You.

On-field high intensity, fundamental skills training with an emphasis on developing a resilient mindset.


Why We Started The Lax Lab

The Lax Lab was formed to provide high level training to bridge the gap that exists between New Jersey Lacrosse
players and traditional lacrosse hotbeds. Our founder, Jules Heningburg, is a New Jerseyan through and through – a former Seton Hall Prep and Rutgers All-American, turned PLL All-Star. He knows the potential that exists in New Jersey. Most importantly, he has done it himself and wants to take others along for the journey.


How are we different?

Jules began in humble beginnings in the Maplewood, NJ recreation program. His love for the game carried him through the hardships of recruiting, building the Rutgers University program, and now into a Premier Lacrosse All Star.

Throughout Jules’ journey, he has elevated himself on and off the field and is committed to uplifting players, as all tides rise. We believe that some of the best teachers are those who are actively working on their craft which is exactly what Jules is doing. He is bringing his first hand experience to strategically develop and strengthen the skills of the next generation of lacrosse players. 

In Summer of 2022, Jules aligned with like minded coaches to continue to expand his offerings beyond just Juke Lab Offensive Training. We are proud to partner with Jack Runkel of the Goalie Workshop to offer elite training for the Goalie position.


Our Mission

The Lax Lab has been created to enrich, develop and inspire the next generation of rising lacrosse players. We provide elite level training, led by the highest level of coaches, with an emphasis on fundamentals, high intensity and IQ development. Failure and resiliency are the most important aspects of player and personal development. Our accessible expert staff gives players the space to be vulnerable, process and accept failure, resulting in trusting relationships with coaches and players alike. Players leave the Lab with improved self awareness, a more mindful approach, and a confidence that they can endure and overcome any obstacle and challenge in the game and life.  The relationships developed go further than just on field training, and lead to natural opportunities for further enrichment off-field as we believe in holistically mentoring our players.

Our Mentorship Program allows players who are looking to take their game to the next level the opportunity to build on their on-field work from The Lax Lab in an off-field environment. 

In addition to on-field training, each month players will have the opportunity to tap into our Lax Lab staff more intimately, along with experts in Mindfulness, Sports Psychology, Mobility and Nutrition* to support their on-field journey. 

During our monthly hour-long meeting, players will explore how to continue to refine and improve their off-field play leveraging the expertise of those who Jules trains with today. In addition, players will be offered the opportunity to tap in with their positional coaches for film and to do a deeper dive on expert content.

This unique model will allow players to optimize their on-field playing experience with top coaches while diving into off-field concepts that empower them to become holistic players and people on and off the field. 

*Topics and experts will be adjusted based on the group needs

All payments are non refundable. If you need to reschedule a session, we must have at least 24 hours notice. If notice is made less than 24 hours prior to the session, it will be considered a cancellation without a credit. If notice is given at least 24 hours prior to a session, a credit will be held. However, credits can only be used within the same series/ season and will not roll over.

    "Jules Heningburg is one of the game's brightest young stars on, and more importantly off the field. As a player, his IQ, skill set and versatility are what separate him. As a Coach, it's his ability to relate to players of all ages, and break the game down in a digestible and age appropriate way. His commitment to the mental health and preparation is unmatched. What’s impressed me the most in his short career - and I can say this with 100% certainty, is that in the end Jules impact off the field for the next generation of players will be even bigger than his impact on the field."

      "Jules provides clear and simple, yet very impactful tips to guide players to optimize their efficiency on the field. His energy and passion for the sport are palpable and he instills that in his players. His approach to teaching combines both physical and mental aspects – the agility training will significantly improve footwork and acceleration and the shooting and passing drills will enhance versatility in both hands. He also gives advice to improve a player’s ability to make strategic plays both off ball and on and how to understand field positioning most effectively. Jules customizes his approach to what an individual needs to bring out his best. As Brendon says, “He improved my split dodge and IQ greatly.”

        "Everything you imagined something called JukeLab7 could be for a lacrosse player, it is that and abundantly more. While Jules’ All-Star skills speak for themselves, it is his brilliant lacrosse mind plus his clear and authentic communication at the heart of the Premier Lacrosse training you will ever find. His humble pursuit of excellence is tangible in every lesson he shares. Jules has been a tremendous teacher, role model and friend to my son."

His clinics are filled with golden nuggets, with attention to fine tuning of skills that have a huge impact. He has been a tremendous inspiration to my son as a player and person."

            "My son Lucas has been working with Jules at the Juke Lab for a few months now. The results have been fantastic as it pertains to his footwork, lacrosse IQ, and fundamentals. Jules is a hands on, energetic trainer who connects closely with his students. Having such a great player share his insights with with Lucas is truly invaluable. We highly recommend young players looking to get better to work with Jules."
