Blaze Riorden, current National Lacrosse League player for the Philadelphia Wings and founder of BR10, is partnering with Road Warriors Lacrosse, a Delaware Incorporated 501(3)(c) non-profit benefiting Haudenosaunee youth lacrosse players, in an exciting endeavor to grow the box lacrosse game in the Philadelphia area.

This new collaboration will be offering high school and college age players the opportunity play JrB level lacrosse in a convenient schedule suited to accommodate the summer field circuit and college breaks.

“Box lacrosse emphasizes every lacrosse skill from stick and foot work to IQ by making you play the game at a fast pace. More and more field players considered the best in the world are coming from a box background, creating a large demand in college recruitment for the box skill set.” – -Blaze Riorden, Team USA Indoor Lacrosse, Philadelphia Wings
