DID YOU KNOW?
- Over the past 5 years, many of the top scorers in NCAA lacrosse have come from Canada. Most of those players attribute their skills to playing Box Lacrosse & nearly all of those players have had limited field lacrosse experience!
- The most talented lacrosse players in the world are in the National Lacrosse League which is comprised of mainly Canadian athletes.
- Team Canada has won 2 of the past 3 field World Championships and the last 4 indoor World Championships. In the summer, Canadians play Box Lacrosse, not field.
WHY TRAIN IN BOTH FIELD/BOX ENVIRONMENT?
Although both use sticks, the games have many different rules and strategies. Campers will need to analyze and think about the game in a dynamic way which will increase their general IQ and understanding of both versions of lacrosse.
SKILLS GAINED IN BOX LACROSSE & HOW THEY IMPACT THE FIELD:
Tight Spaces: gain significantly improved stick skills due to the need for fast ball movement & pin-point accuracy shooting against larger goalies on smaller nets.
No out of bounds: players must be accustomed to non-stop action, keeping their mind/reflexes sharp and building their awareness on the outdoor field.
Faster Paced: learn to make decisions more quickly, which will translate to seeing the field game happening at a slower rate.
