Team US Box West

Team USBOXLA represents the absolute best American box lacrosse players at the Pee Wee (10/09), Bantam (08/07), and Midget (06/05) levels. The program has successfully competed in Canada for the past several years and includes elite American box lacrosse talent from across the country.

There is no cost to register. Players must be committed to playing in all Team USBOXLA West tournaments and events (see below for more info). Players will be selected through the registration information provided, evaluation by USBOXLA staff at events, and further correspondence with their club coaches. 

Managing USBOXLA Member

USBOXLA has selected the Arizona Outlaws organization to manage Team USBOXLA West in 2021. Founded by longtime USBOXLA coach and former National Lacrosse League player, Ben Prepchuk, the Outlaws have been one of the most successful western-based programs in recent years. Winning multiple gold and silver medals at recent USBOXLA-sanctioned tournaments, including the highly skilled USBOXLA Western Invitational in Las Vegas, the program also successfully launched the 16-team Arizona Elite Box Lacrosse League, doubling their player participation this past year.

"Every year I look forward to the first week of June because I know I will be in Vancouver with our USBOXLA National teams," said Prepchuk, who has been involved with the Team USBOXLA coaching staff for the last number of years. "And every year we see the growth and development of the American-born box lacrosse player.

"It is truly amazing to see how far we have come in a few short years. From losing most of our games to competing for gold in multiple divisions. It is a true testament to the players and coaches in the USBOXLA system for growing the game the right way."

The Minnesota Stars have also been selected to assist in the overseeing of Team USBOXLA West. The Stars, founded by Aime Caines, has also experienced similar success at some of USBOXLA's most skilled and competitive events.

The Team USBOXLA West coaching staff will be announced soon, and as it does every year, will include former and current NLL players and coaches.

2021 PROGRAM Information

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): 

  1. USBOXLA Nationals All-Star Game - Team USBOXLA East vs. West
