Well, wax coats the tape to make it water proof. You see, when you play for several periods, if you do not wax the tape, the water will soak into the tape and with that extra water, it might change the feel and weight of your stick.

Plus, with time, the water will emulsify the glue gum on the tape which will make the tape fall off if the bottom is chewed off due to use.
