FALL BOX BEGINNER CLINICS

Welcome to the Riptide Box Beginner Clinics! This program is designed for players in 2nd - 9th grades who are brand new to lacrosse.

We will work on each of the fundamentals of lacrosse, including groundballs, catching, throwing, and cradling, in the roller hockey rink at Earl Warren Showgrounds.

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

These clinics are the place to start learning the basics in preparation for all of our other programs!

If players excel through these clinics, they may participate in our Youth Box League starts starts on Monday 9/27.

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.
