There is no better way to enhance lax IQ, fundamentals, athleticism, and stick skills than to play box lacrosse. Box lacrosse:

  • Requires players to make quick decisions on both the defensive and offensive ends of the field.

  • Improves inside and outside shooting accuracy with smaller goals and larger goalies.

  • Encourages greater teamwork on offense with picks, rolls, and cutting to get open in a smaller space.

  • Refines concepts of team defense by playing against more compact, faster-paced offenses.

  • Provides a non-stop game full of transition and fast break opportunities.

Players who make the team participate in three to four sessions per week, each with a unique structure and focus:

  1. Team Practice -- 90 minute session, recurring on weeknights, focusing on offensive & defensive systems, transition and other team concepts.

  2. Fall Homegrown Academy -- 75 minute session, recurring on weeknights focusing on fundamentals, position-specific skills, and functional strength development.

  3. Games -- Doubleheaders played against other regional teams on Saturday’s in outdoor arenas.

Final games are played the weekend before MEA break in Mid October!
