High School & Middle School Boys
Fall Box League Starts September 17
WHY BOX LACROSSE IN THE FALL?
“If box lacrosse were played by kids in the U.S. In the fall the way it is played in Canada, it would completely change the complexion of the game in terms of the quality of play and the balance of power. The trend of competitive balance at the DI level would be expedited.
Now, the game is growing faster than ever, but one doesn’t see improvement in players from certain regions as expected with such large growth. Box Lacrosse would change all of that. You don’t have to be a good coach to make kids be better players in the box. Like a great drill, it just happens.”
-Jamie Munro as quoted in Inside Lacrosse
