Our modified box lacrosse league is specifically designed to promote safe and fast play based on key box lacrosse fundamentals and concepts.
- Our league features boards and corners to create a “full box” field to keep the ball in play.
- Our league utilizes a shot clock to keep the pace of play moving at the speed of box lacrosse.
The modified box rules benefit all lacrosse players. Attackmen and midfielders will learn to operate in tight spaces improving stick skills, passing and shooting accuracy. Long sticks are not allowed so defenders will learn to play with their body and feet, improving approach and angle play. Goalies will be instructed on proper box goaltending techniques, including positioning, angles, baiting, etc.
Registered teams will receive one training session that will focus on proper box techniques, including biomechanics, offensive/defensive angles, shooting/finishing, picks, screens, on and off ball play and proper box goaltending techniques
“When you watch Canadian kids score, when you see their skill level around the cage, you wonder to yourself, ‘Jeez, are we teaching kids [in the U.S.] the wrong things?”
