*Boards and corners to create a “full box” field to keep the ball in play.
*Utilizes a shot clock to keep the pace of play moving at the speed of box lacrosse.
*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 defenders will learn to play with their body and feet, improving approach and angle play. Goalies will be instructed on proper box goaltending techniques, including positioning, angles, baiting, etc.
*Registered teams will receive one training session that will focus on proper box techniques, including biomechanics, offensive/defensive angles, shooting/finishing, picks, screens, on and off ball play and proper box goaltending techniques
Gameplay is 5v5 plus goalies (4×4 goals and goalie equipment will be provided)
Each team plays 8 regular season games followed by playoffs for the top 4 teams in each division
Two 20-minute halves
