Why Box Lacrosse?
Box is a skills based game that offers more touches, a faster pace of game play, emphasis on team passing rather than 1-on-1 dodging and execution within a tight confine makes the game a skills development pressure cooker. There’s no better way to improve your skills and gain confidence in your stick than by playing Box Lacrosse.
