WHAT IS BOX LACROSSE AND WHY DOES IT IMPROVE YOUR FIELD LACROSSE GAME

Box Lacrosse is different from playing indoor field lacrosse. 

  • 5 on 5 play plus a padded goalie
  • 15 players per team
  • 4x4 goals (regular field goal is 6 x 6)
  • More flowing game
  • No one "stays back"
  • No long poles
  • Goalies wear big pads

Advantages of box lacrosse over indoor field lacrosse.

  • Smaller goals force players to get closer to net rather than relying on outside shots
  • Not having defenders and attack stay back get you in better shape and make more well rounded players learning both offensive and defensive skills
  • Long poles learn to use feet and body to play defense and don't rely solely on stick checks
  • Goalies learn to use their body to make more saves
  • Learn the use of stick fakes and quick precision passing
