See what Division I lacrosse coaches are saying about indoor box lacrosse.
“American field players would really help themselves if they were exposed to a steady stream of box experience”- Dom Starsia, University of Virginia
“Players with box experience, in many cases, have superior stick skills that those have never played the box game” – Nick Meyers, Ohio State University
“One of the biggest benefits of playing box for a young player is in the development of lacrosse IQ – Peter Lawrence, University of Hartford
Why Play Indoor Box Lacrosse?
Also built into the C.H.I.L.L. league (10th -12th graders), our indoor box lacrosse clinic will show players the difference between field and box lacrosse. Indoor box lacrosse promotes faster skill development and makes for a more enjoyable experience. Playing on a smaller field area promotes creativity to beat defenders. Shooting on a smaller 4’ x 4’ indoor net, compared to a 6’ x 6’ field net, improves shooting accuracy. Overall, indoor box lacrosse accelerates the learning process with more touches and possession time to develop stronger stick skills. As a result, players gain more confidence in their abilities.
Champion Lacrosse is the only program that offers professional indoor box lacrosse instruction. We feel that there is great value in coaching indoor box lacrosse because it gives players a greater opportunity for possession of the ball. We’ve found in one of our recent studies that in a 48-minute high school field lacrosse game, the average player has possession of the ball 12 times per game. In an indoor box lacrosse game played on a 200’ x 80’ ice rink area, THE AVERAGE PLAYER DOUBLED HIS AMOUNT OF POSSESSION TO 24 TIMES PER GAME.
