The benefits of box lacrosse are more than proven and playing in this league has provided a distinct advantage for participating teams when they enter their Spring seasons.
“Wisslax completed it’s most successful seasons EVER in 2015 by capturing the SEPYLA B1-Elite Championship, SEPYLA B2 Championship, and only undefeated C1-North team. These are the levels that have been playing indoor in your league the last two winters. I would say it has worked.” -Wisslax President Steve Lehman
“My 2022 team had a very successful tournament summer… I believe playing “box” together last winter was definately a contributor” Twist Coach
“Having our club train and play in the Fusion Lacrosse league for the past three years was a perfect fit. Steve Holmes, Kevin Crowley and the entire Fusion coaching staff do an excellent job working with us to give our players a fresh and different perspective of the game. Fusion provided us skills, knowledge, and experience of box lacrosse that we frankly couldn’t have found anywhere else in the Philadelphia area and probably anywhere in the country. Unlike most clubs who build barriers, Fusion broke down the walls and has made their organization into a unique alley of cooperation and support for our lacrosse training. Great experience!” – BucksMont North Stars Lacrosse Club, Rick Lazasz
“Fusion Lacrosse provides a unique and fun indoor lacrosse experience for our local players. Fusion’s staff of coaches are experienced, skilled, and share a desire to grow the game. Throughout the season I saw consistent improvement with the players on my team, as well as the skill level of the other teams in the league. The indoor lacrosse game is even faster than outdoor; It stresses very strong stick skills, fast transition play, and quick decision making. Without question the players who practice the indoor skill set will the reap the rewards in spring and summer outdoor play.” (John Kuhn, President of the North Penn Lacrosse Club, Twist Team Coach)
