Box Lacrosse 101

Box Lacrosse is an electrifying version of the game we already love to play. BOX is a 5v5, high contact, fast paced shootout that has been played for over a hundred years, mainly in Canada and on many Native American Reservations and over the past 10 years has slowly made its way into mainstream lacrosse across the US. Top Professionals such as Zed Williams, Matt Rambo, Trevor Baptiste, Blaze Riorden, and many others credit their development to box lacrosse, which is responsible for the traits that we usually assign to Canadian players (one handed, good/consistent hands).

Benefits of Box Lacrosse
