Maplezone Sports Institute and Heritage Lacrosse are pleased to offer a brand new winter indoor modified box lacrosse league format specifically designed to promote safe and fast play based on key box lacrosse fundamentals and concepts.
This adult league is primarily designed for college players home for winter break who are interested in playing fun, safe lacrosse to keep their game “tuned up” before they return to campus for spring lax. The modified box rules benefit all lacrosse players.
Attackmen and midfielders will learn to operate in tight spaces improving stick skills, passing and shooting accuracy. Long sticks are not allowed so all players will learn to play with their body and feet, improving approach and angle play. Goalies will work on proper box goaltending techniques, including positioning, angles, baiting, etc.
