Holiday Youth Boys Box Lax Clinic – 2018
Please join us for our youth lacrosse clinic and introduction to box lacrosse. We will cover individual skills, team concepts, and active play scenarios. This is a great introduction to box lacrosse and we will be incorporating many box specific drills.
Growing importance of Box Lacrosse taken from an excerpt of Inside Lacrosse Magazine:
“Box lacrosse is played in a much smaller space than it’s ﬁeld counterpart. That space restriction creates a much faster tempo and requires quicker decision-making. Players in the box game grow more accustomed to handling the ball and scoring in trafﬁc.The box game is played at a higher tempo than the ﬁeld game and in a much tighter space, said Myers. This sharpens a player’s ability to react and you ﬁnd that players with box experience, in many cases, have superior stick skills than those who have never played the box game before. When returning to the ﬁeld, players with box lacrosse experience typically have an advantage with more time and space. Coaches at the highest levels of NCAA Men’s Lacrosse have taken notice, and encourage participation in box lacrosse to their players and recruits.”
