Box Lacrosse League
Join us in our upcoming Box Lacrosse League this new year. Box Lacrosse is a type of lacrosse played in a box (hockey rink) similar to ice hockey. The smaller more confined playing area, forces players to develop better stick skills and lacrosse IQ. Unlike field lacrosse, all players are required to use short sticks, allowing each player to learn how to play offense and defense. Playing box lacrosse this season will not only be extremely fun, but it will make you a much better overall lacrosse player. We encourage all new and returning players to sign up for the Box Lacrosse League.

Here are what some of the top minds in Lacrosse are saying about Box Lacrosse.
"I knew that if I wanted to be one of the best players in the world, I would have to dedicate myself to both the indoor and the outdoor game. Playing indoor lacrosse has been a great thing for my career. "
-Casey Powell, MLL/NLL All-Star
"I believe that box lacrosse gives young players many more opportunities to excel in our game. If I had my choice, I would have every player under the age of twelve play box lacrosse exculsively or at least a majority of the time. The number of touches of the ball and the ability to develop better stick skills in a game of box lacrosse, far surpasses what happens to young people on a 110x60 yard field. Learning how to pass and catch in traffic, understanding how to shoot, and developing a sense of physicality are all positive traits developed by the box game. "
-Bill Tierney, US Lacrosse Hall of Fame, Denver University Head Coach, Princeton 6x National Champion, Team USA 1998
"One of the biggest benefits of playing box for a young lacrosse player is in the development of lacrosse IQ. Because everyone plays with a short stick (in box lacrosse), you have to focus on being a complete lacrosse player versus specializing as an attackman or d-man. That is how your IQ grows and skills improve."
- University of Hartford Head Coach Peter Lawrence
