Boy’s Winter Leagues – Updated 11/2023
This year we will be focusing on box lacrosse concepts and playing in the new Nexus Center! We’ll teach players new stick skills, mastery of picking and rolling, team offense and defense. We’ll transition from clinic type practices to playing games. We’ve seen a transformation of players time and time again. The skills offered in box lacrosse directly relate to field lacrosse. Playing in tight spaces, knowing when to slide on defense, the two-man game, constant motion on offense, and relentless pursuit of ground balls. Each player we’ve taught box lacrosse to has become a better field player. We have goalie equipment for kids that want to try that position out or we’ll provide goalies to play during practices.
