For The Kids Lacrosse

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.

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. Box lacrosse forces players to:

  • Make quick decisions under pressure
  • Shoot and pass more accurately
  • Improve their footwork and overall speed
  • Maneuver with and without the ball in traffic
  • Develop both offensive and defensive skills
  • Generate optimal scoring opportunities
  • Play an effective multi-man game (i.e. picks)
  • Become smarter and more physical
  • Constantly be engaged due to far fewer game stoppages
  • Generate space away from the play
  • Be more creative while generating offensive opportunities with and without the ball
  • And most importantly‚Ķ have fun!
