Buzzards Announce National Box Teams

NATIONAL BOX TEAMS

Our National Box teams are for our most committed players who are looking to train, compete, and elevate their games at the next level. Throughout the 2019/20 season we will be attending five top box events in the US and Canada. This summer our Midgets will be heading to the epicenter of box lacrosse – Toronto, Ontario, and then on the USBOXLA Nationals in Southern California in August. THIS IS OPEN TO PLAYERS FROM ANY CLUB.

This year we plan to offer National teams at both the Bantam (Rising 7th & 8th Grade – ’05 / ’06 birth year) and Midget levels – Rising Freshman & Sophomores (’03, ’04, ’05 birth year). Players will participate in both summer and winter box events.
