FALL YOUTH BOX LEAGUE

Welcome to the Riptide Fall Youth Box League!  This Fall program for all youth players in Santa Barbara is designed to teach players box-specific skills that translate to the field games.

Sessions will include a combination of box skills training and players will placed into teams for scrimmages and games.

These 7 sessions are an opportunity for players to improve their fitness,  stick skills and be introduced to box-specific concepts like picking, shooting, fast breaks, unsettled scenarios, and transition. 

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)

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.
