"If I had my choice, I would have every player under the age of 12 play box lacrosse exclusively or at least a majority of the time. The number of touches of the ball and the ability to develop better stick skills in a game of box lacrosse far surpasses what happens on a 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.”
6X NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP COACH BILL TIERNEY, UNIVERSITY OF DENVER
Started in Canada in the 1930’s, Box Lacrosse has risen to distinction by fostering the skills of many of the best players to ever play the game. All-time greats like, John Taveres, Gary & Paul Gait, John Grant JR., Brodie Merrill, Tracey Kelusky, and Tom Marechek all started their lacrosse careers playing box in rinks as kids. The pace and style of play forces players to cultivate excellent stick skills, game sense, and toughness, while allowing players to be creative.
American players like Casey Powell, Jake Bergey, Kevin Finneran, Jay Jalbert, Mark Millon, Paul Rabil, and Tom Schreiber all started playing box lacrosse late, but excelled and became even better field lacrosse players because of their indoor playing experience.
901 Lacrosse believes that the best way to up your game is to develop a skill set that is successful both indoors and outdoors.
It is the mission of the 901 Box Lacrosse League to teach players how to play box the correct way in a fun and high paced environment. Our USBOXLA sanctioned league ensures that all coaches and referees have been certified and will be able to properly teach and enforce the rules.
Growing the game of box lacrosse at the grassroots level is our passion.
