For The Kids Lacrosse

Why play Box Lacrosse?

As everyone has seen both on a national and collegiate level, players with a box lacrosse background have a clear advantage over field lacrosse players who have never played indoors. Benefits of playing Box Lacrosse:

1) FAST! With a confined playing area, everything is accelerated and players have to handle pressure, make quick decisions and be able to thread the needle with passes and shots. A 30 second shot clock keeps the game moving.

2) Less down time. Missed shots and passes that hit the boards stay in play and reduce stoppages.

3) Less players on the field equals more touches per game. Everyone plays both sides of the floor. Increased participation equals more engagement and excitement.

4) Smaller goals and no defense sticks force players to play with finesse and and technique forcing them to improve their fundamentals

Background

Started in Canada in the 1930's, Box Lacrosse has risen to distinction by fostering the skills of many of the best players to ever play the game. All-time greats like, John Taveres, Gary & Paul Gait, John Grant JR., Brodie Merrill, Tracey Kelusky, and Tom Marechek all started their lacrosse careers playing box in rinks as kids. The pace and style of play forces players to cultivate excellent stick skills, game sense, and toughness, while allowing players to be creative.

American players like Casey Powell, Jake Bergey, Kevin Finneran, Jay Jalbert, Mark Millon, Paul Rabil, and Tom Schreiber all started playing box lacrosse late, but excelled and became even better field lacrosse players because of their indoor playing experience.
