Box League - SOUTH

ONLY 30 SPOTS per Division

BOX LEAGUE SOUTH

Our Youth and High School Box Leagues are open to players who are new to the sport, or may prefer a more individual/direct approach from the coaching staff.  By focusing on the basics players are able to build a platform from which to grow their experience and skill level.  Player Development is the most important aspect of youth lacrosse, and True Lacrosse is dedicated to helping young athletes realize and reach their full potential.

Training over the fall/winter provides a continuity/consistency that is necessary for any player looking to improve their skills and knowledge of the game, especially at the youth level.  Our box leagues will provide athletes with a 20 minute training session directly followed by two 20 minute halves of game play to ensure maximum exposure to the new skills and techniques teams will be working on over the course of the league.

What is Box Lacrosse and why does it improve your field lacrosse game

Box Lacrosse is different from playing indoor field lacrosse. 

  • 5 on 5 play plus a padded goalie
  • 15 players per team
  • 4x4 goals (regular field goal is 6 x 6)
  • More flowing game
  • No one "stays back"
  • No long poles
  • Goalies wear big pads

Advantages of box lacrosse over indoor field lacrosse.

  • Smaller goals force players to get closer to net rather than relying on outside shots
  • Not having defenders and attack stay back get you in better shape and make more well rounded players learning both offensive and defensive skills
  • Long poles learn to use feet and body to play defense and don't rely solely on stick checks
  • Goalies learn to use their body to make more saves
  • Learn the use of stick fakes and quick precision passing

 


Common Questions

My son plays goalie.  Do I need to buy him box pads?

No.  True Lacrosse will be supplying the additional chest protector and leggings.  We provide goalie pads for all box goalies.  Teams are responsible for providing their own goalie

Who will be my coach?

True will be using some friends from North of the Border to teach box specific lacrosse skills.  This game is most popular in Canada so we've brought in some special help.

How many players play on a box team?

A typical team consists of 14-15 players.  Players get quickly gassed from the up and down pace of the game.  You need lots of subs.
