The Registration "BOX LACROSSE INFORMATION" is not currently available.
The game originated in Canada, where it is the most popular version of lacrosse. It is played between two teams of five players and one goalie each. Traditionally the game is played on an ice hockey rink once the ice has been removed or covered. There are more similarities to hockey and basketball than field lacrosse. The video on this page shows youth box lacrosse games along with former players, and coaches discussing the benefits of box lacrosse. (NOTE: We play a modified version of box lacrosse with more rules around checking. Players wear the same equipment as field lacrosse players, except for the goalie.)
There are a few league options in the Twin cities. Game play is an hybrid field/box combination (no cross-checking, no shot clock).
The season runs late February through mid-April.
