It was just a few years ago that Americans thought that boys box lacrosse was just that poorly attended, roll the ball out indoor league played in the off-season. Today, we know that players were playing with the wrong sized nets, using the wrong equipment, playing by the wrong rules, not being taught correctly and simply weren't getting any of the benefits those canucks north of the border were.
Well, boys in America have discovered the real game of box and all its benefits in a big way by doing it right.
Now it's time for girls to step up and play box the right way. The benefits of playing box whether you're a girl or a boy are undeniable.
The USBOXLA Nationals is the biggest and best box lacrosse tournament in the USA. There's tons of excitement, the best refs in Canada and the USA, the stands are full, it's in Huntington Beach, California and best of all we have girls teams there too.
If you're into developing great players, if you're into having some serious fun, if you're into being a leader in your community by offering cutting edge skill development sign your team up.
This year we offer a free pre-USBOXLA Nationals Academy for your registered team and their coaches.
Your coaches are invited onto the floor to take part and listen in on elite level Canadian box instructors that specialize in girls box lacrosse.
Whether you're offensively minded, defensively minded, a player who loves the face-off circle or plays between the pipes as a goalie, USBOXLA Academy coaches will provide position-specific training to ensure great gameplay at the USBOXLA Nationals.
