USBOXLA has selected charter member Resolute Lacrosse to manage Team USBOXLA East in 2021. Based in Columbus, Ohio, the Resolute program has experienced considerable success at the youth, high school, and collegiate levels since its inception, and especially over the past year. In 2019, the Resolute-managed Ohio Collegiate Box Lacrosse League's Rivermen captured the first-ever National Collegiate Box Series National Championship at the USBOXLA Nationals. During their most recent winter season, Resolute's youth program continued their midwest box supremacy by medaling twelve times at various USBOXLA-sanctioned events, including the Midwest Classic. After witnessing many of the region's top players at nearly a dozen different tournaments this past season, the Resolute leadership team, including club founders Greg Bice and Anthony Kelly, will provide crucial input in the selection of the Team USBOXLA East rosters. The Team USBOXLA East coaching staff will be announced soon, and as it does every year, will include former and current National Lacrosse League players and coaches.
There are three mandatory components of the Team USBOXLA East program. All rostered players must be committed to all three. If after being selected a player is only able to attend one or two of these required commitments, they will be released from the team and replaced with an alternate for the remainder of the program. Please do not apply if you are unable to attend all three required commitments. The three mandatory components of the tour include (details for each found further below):
