We think box lacrosse adds diversity and a fresh perspective to our program, a change from two field lacrosse seasons back to back. Even more importantly, box lacrosse is simply the best way to build advanced skills and IQ’s in our young lacrosse players. You cannot watch lacrosse on TV today without noticing the heavy influence of box lacrosse at the highest levels of the game. With the Canadian National Men's Field Lacrosse Team beating Team USA (Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championships in 2014), and Denver University’s box inspired offense winning the 2015 NCAA Championship (both teams not coincidentally had Matt Brown running the offense), well the train is leaving the station regarding the benefits of box. We want our kids on the cutting edge of what is going on globally. While box offers an absolute distinctive advantage to young players in Arizona, it also help to prepare should they choose to compete at the national of even global level, much more so than if they came up with a field lacrosse only skill set.
