Information about Box Lacrosse Training

Box lacrosse is a lacrosse variation developed in Canada. Nevertheless, it also is a rapidly growing form of advanced training for field lacrosse in the USA. Box lacrosse helps to generate superior stick skills given a narrower field and smaller goals.

Box lacrosse was historically played in an ice rink where you could bounce the ball off the walls and thus get more "touches" (versus going out of bounds). Moreover, since the goals are much smaller in box lacrosse than those in field lacrosse, players develop greater accuracy. This has led to box lacrosse players developing very advanced stick skills. In turn, this has allowed many Canadians box lacrosse players to become leading attackmen on D1 lacrosse programs.

Tips & Advice for Box Lacrosse

  • Box lacrosse encourages players to shoot with short, quick flicks in order to avoid being checked.
  • Players learn not to hang their stick as they do not have time or room for large wind-ups.
  • Since the goals are much smaller (4x4) than those in field lacrosse (6x6), players develop greater accuracy.
  • Fakes are a large part of box lacrosse because players need to make the goalie move in order to open a wider space in the goal.
  • Since long poles are not allowed, defenders learn how to use their feet and body versus relying on their long poles.
  • Many youth programs are instituting their own box training given the success of box lacrosse. Contact your youth lacrosse coordinator or high school coach for information on local box lacrosse programs.
