What IS Box Lacrosse?

Box is played 6 v 6 off the boards of a hockey rink, with smaller goals, bigger goalies, no long poles, tighter space and a much faster transition combined to equal increased skill at all levels.  It’s more like basketball and hockey than it is field lacrosse.  The benefits of Box lacrosse to the developing player is well documented and evident with Denver University’s box oriented offense domination in the NCAA, winning the National Championship in 2015.  What is less talked about is that Box, when played properly, is actually safer than field lacrosse, which is a great change of pace for field-only players...and a lot of fun!

USBOXLA provides a common structure and governance for nationwide youth Box lacrosse leagues, tournaments, and travel teams.  Additionally, USBOXLA provides support and member benefits to Indoor Sport Facility Owners/Managers, league operators, coaches and referees to assist their Box lacrosse efforts.
