WHY PLAY BOX LACROSSE?

“I knew that if I wanted to be one of the best players in the world, I would have to dedicate myself to both the indoor and the outdoor game. Playing indoor lacrosse has been a great thing for my career.”

-Casey Powell, MLL/NLL All-Star

 

If I had my choice, I would have every player under the age of twelve play box lacrosse exclusively or at least a majority of the time.  The number of touches on the ball and the ability to develop better stick skills in a game of box lacrosse, far surpasses what happens to young people on a 110 x 60 yard field.  Learning how to pass and catch in traffic, understanding how to shoot, and developing a sense of physicality are all positive traits developed by the box game.”

– Bill Tierney, US Lacrosse Hall of Fame, Denver University Head Coach, Princeton 6xNational Champion, Team USA 1998
