Team USBOXLA Girls

What is Team USBOXLA Girls?

Team USBOXLA girls is modeled after our highly successful boys program where some of the most dynamic NCAA players in recent history played in our Canadian box lacrosse tours.  The Girls program is  comprised of multiple clubs' top players in order to compete in top Canadian tournaments.  We surround these players with the very best coaches in the game against top level Canadian competition.


In the summer of 2022  Team USBOXLA girls competed in the Bantam and Midget divisions at the prestigious  Trevor Wingrove Memorial Tournament hosted by the Coquitlam Adanacs in beautiful British Columbia.  This was the first USA based girls teams to ever play in this ultra competitive event.  The Midget team won bronze and Bantam team won gold!

The Bantam and Midget teams were made up of players from the Cali*Lax ALL-STARS, Jr Seals and the MN Lady Stars.  The girls were coached by:

  • 3x Canadian National Champion as a player

2023 Program Information

Additional Tournament (World Cup Box Futures)

While the 2022 World Cup Box Futures was a resounding success taking place during the Women's World Cup, it is very tough to schedule this event in the summer of 2023.

We are working on the 2023 dates for this event or an alternative and hope to have that published soon.

This is an ala carte event and registration fees are not included in the main programming.

Girls who played in the Trevor Wingrove Memorial Tournament will have priority in registering for this event.
