2017 Fall Premier - League Resources

Why Play Box?
There is no better way to enhance lacrosse IQ, fundamentals, athleticism, and stick skills than to play box lacrosse. Box Lacrosse...

  • Requires players to make quick decisions on both the defensive and offensive sides of the field.
  • Improves inside and outside shooting accuracy with smaller goals and larger goalies.
  • Encourages greater teamwork on offense with picks, rolls, and cutting to get open in a smaller space.
  • Refines concepts of team defense by playing against more compact, faster-paced offenses.
  • Provides a non-stop game full of transition and fast break opportunities.
  • Listen to why Syracuse head coach, John Desko, thinks every young player should play box lacrosse.
