Box Lacrosse Introduction
As Lacrosse season is now upon us and we watch some of the great games that have already appeared on television, you can’t help but notice the number of Canadian players excelling at the collegiate level. As so many American players, parents and fans marvel at the way these Canadian players showcase their superior stick skills and the ease with which they finish around the goal, there is always one common question; How do they do it? The answer is simple; their background in Box Lacrosse.
The value of skill development in a Box Lacrosse setting can not be understated. Again and again you will hear the most successful college coaches in the country speaking about how young players with Box Lacrosse experience are at a decided advantage over those who have none.
With these factors in mind, we are proud to introduce the first true “Canadian Box Lacrosse” experience on Long Island. Pro Box Lacrosse, LLC has spent a tremendous amount of time and effort developing a program that will act as both an introduction to the sport, while also ensuring that players are able to take what they have learned in the “Box” and apply it to their “Field” game.
Played 6 against 6 (including goalies) in a hockey rink environment, “Canadian Box” is played at a similar tempo and with similar offensive and defensive philosophies as basketball but is much more physical.
Here are a few of the aspects that make “Canadian Box” different:
■ Goals measure 4’ high x 4’6” wide as opposed to the 6’ x 6’ goals in field lacrosse.
■ Goaltenders are fully padded in a similar fashion to hockey and play with their stick to the ground as opposed to field lacrosse where they are standing straight up with their stick up high.
■ Game is played with a shot clock and a 10 second count to advance the ball over the mid-line.
■ A face-off takes place after each goal is scored.
This program will initially be offered to players in grades 5/6 and 7/8 and is recommended for players who have strong stick skills and a good understanding of field lacrosse. This program is not for beginners and we reserve the right to dismiss players who do not possess the necessary skills to compete
Enrollment will be limited to the first 30 players in each group (grades 5 & 6 and grades 7 & 8) for a total of 60 players. Spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis and no spots will be held until full payment is received.
Players will register as individuals. Coaching will be provided by former professional players with experience in both the Major Indoor Lacrosse League and the National Lacrosse League.
