From Press Release
Tryouts begin for Pennsylvania’s inaugural USBOXLA All-star team this Sunday, for both a high school and a middle school team.
Box lacrosse is emerging as a major program in the United States and Penn*Lax All-Stars aims to be the class of the nation. Top box competition has been established all over the country with teams like Denver Elite (CO), Cali*Lax All-Stars (CA), Team 91 (NY), Resolute (OH), Fundamental (CN) having set the pace for the last few years in the US. Penn*Lax will be traveling to the top four box tournaments in the country.
“We believe collectively there is enough box lacrosse experience in PA, and certainly there is enough talent in PA, to take aim and win nationals (in California next August),” said Penn*Lax co-founder Steve Holmes. “But the main end goal of all of this, is to expose talented field players to a game, and elite training that will most definitely serve as a huge advantage to our players development. Box lacrosse when taught properly makes you better, period.”
“We’re not trying to upset the balance of the current elite team experience in PA,” said Team Canada MVP and World Champion Kevin Crowley, also a coach for Penn*Lax. “We’re filling a major void that we believe will take our local players to unprecedented levels as an amazing supplement to field lacrosse.”
Penn*Lax All-Stars is a box only travel team, led by a team of elite local coaches.
