BOX LACROSSE overview

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.

FALL YOUTH BOX LEAGUE

Welcome to the Riptide Fall Box Lacrosse League!  This is an ”academy-style" league where the first half of each session will focus on stickwork and box-specific training; picking, shooting, fast breaks, unsettled scenarios, and box lacrosse concepts. The second half of each session, we will split the players up into teams and scrimmage.

Players will learn the box game and developing skills in a smaller area and then allowing players time to be creative and have fun with the game.

EQUIPMENT

Players are responsible for all of their own gear & water.  Players must have a helmet, mouthpiece, stick, shoulder pads, gloves & arm pads to be eligible to play each day. All players will get a reversible jersey with their registration. 

Box lacrosse is played on a hard surface court so proper footwear would be tennis shoes/sneakers. We recommend a basketball shoe with ankle support.  (NO CLEATS)
