We excited to offer our PeeWee Box program for players in Grade 4,5 & 6. For our PeeWees, sessions will be split approx. 50% skills and practice and 50% games. We will be playing a very fast, cross-floor 5 v 5 version of box (vs. 6 v 6). We teach all our players at every age level 4 v 4 first as it is the simpler, more intuitive way to learn the box offense and techniques. Cross floor ensures it is rapid fire and all players get a ton of touches.
Box lacrosse not only hones your lacrosse skills; it expands them. The box game requires a level of speed, creativity, accuracy, deception, and off ball movement not found in field lacrosse. The best part is that you get so much better, and it is so much fun to play! We hope you will join us this winter.
Sessions will run for 12 weeks starting in mid-November. Enrollment is open to any player looking to play. It is our expectation that players will be experience in field lacrosse, but that box will be a new endeavor for most U13. Players will need the following equipment:
- hockey or field helmet,
- gloves, arm guards, and should pads (same as field),
- hard shell bicep pads (attaches to any shoulder pads) & kidney/rid pads
