AILA 2017 - 2018 BOX PROGRAM

PROGRAM DESIGN

Our program provides a box lacrosse experience with a balance of training, games, tournaments and finishes with a trip to Canada, the mother ship of box lacrosse.   Box lacrosse is Canada's summer National Sport and ice hockey is Canada's winter national sport.

There arse many unique features of box lacrosse, five on five players, the glass/boards, 30 second shot clock, small goals, goalies with full pads, players use short sticks and play offense and defense and the ball is always in play, just to name a few. 

The features create an environment where players must develop two and three men games both on and off ball to create space.  There are several odd man situations, many rebounds, there are three times as many shots as a field game so players learn how to read and react and develop a unique lacrosse literacy that will help them reach their hopes and dreams.
