2018 Fall Premier

The Homegrown Premier Fall Box League is a first-of-its-kind regional training Box Lacrosse program which provides a powerful opportunity for athletes to develop new levels of confidence, skill, knowledge and ability. Our Fall Premier Regional Development Teams consist of the Wolfpack (West Metro)Muskies (South Metro)Riverlax (East Metro), and the Bears (North Metro).

Season Structure: Tryouts for the Fall season begin after Labor-Day in early September. Final games are played the weekend before MEA in mid-October. Players participate in three sessions per week, each with a unique structure and focus: 

  • Team Practice - 90-minute sessions run on recurring weeknights and focus on offensive & defensive systems, transition, and other team concepts.
  • Fall Homegrown Academy - 75-minute sessions run on recurring weeknights and focus on fundamentals, position-specific skills, and functional strength development.
  • Games - Doubleheaders played in outdoor arenas on Saturday mornings / early afternoons. Game rotate between each of the league's four regional host sites.

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.
