What is Box Lacrosse?

Box Lacrosse is Canadian style indoor lacrosse. A skills based game, it offers more skill repetition, a faster pace and a large emphasis on team passing and execution within the tight confines of an indoor field. Shooting, passing and ground ball skills will rapidly develop and improve.

 

“Playing professional box lacrosse took my outdoor game to the next level. Box lacrosse is why I made the Men’s US National Team, which went on to win the World Lacrosse Championships in 2010 in Manchester, England. Join HSL Box League for fun, competition and to continue developing your lacrosse skill and IQ.”

- Eric Martin, HSL Winter Box Director
