This is going to be the spot you find it. Come build on your fundamentals and expand your skill set as you learn all the moves to become a faster player with greater accuracy, agility, and stick skills. As the teams will learn all they need to know about the indoor game, then head off and play in a box lacrosse tournament.  Box lacrosse, also known as indoor lacrosse and sometimes shortened to boxla or simply box, is an indoor version of lacrosse played mostly in North America. The game originated in Canada, where it is the most popular version of the game played in contrast to the traditional field lacrosse game.

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
