FALL BEGINNER BOX CLINIC

Welcome to the Riptide Beginner Box Clinic! This program is designed for players from 3rd - 8th grades who are brand new to lacrosse. We will work on each of the fundamentals of lacrosse, including groundballs, catching, throwing, and cradling, in a small-field setting.

Learning lacrosse in a closed arena or "box" allows players to get more repetitions because the ball never goes out of bounds!

This clinic is the place to start learning the basics in preparation for all of our other programs. If players excel in this clinic, they may be invited to participate in the youth box league.

EQUIPMENT

We provide basic gear (stick/helmet) at no additional cost! 

WHAT IS "BOX" LACROSSE?

Originated in Canada, "Box" lacrosse is played in a roller hockey rink 5 vs 5  in addition to a fully padded goalie in a 4' x 4' goal.

The Box Game is fast-paced and physical because it's played in a smaller, enclosed space, requiring players to focus on improving quick stick skills and team passing to succeed.

When played properly, there is a heavy emphasis on various lacrosse concepts: stickwork, finishing, teamwork, physicality and transition.

As these directly translate to the field game, our coaches work with players to develop and enhance the necessary skills to excel throughout all of our programs.
