2020 Boys Introduction to Box Sessions

November 2 through Dec. 18, 2020

Learn the basics of Box Lacrosse with clinic-style skill development drills and games on the training floor at Reno Sportsdome!


Box Lacrosse is Canadian-style indoor lacrosse tha offers more reps, a faster pace and an emphasis on team passing and execution within the tight confines of an indoor field. Shooting, passing and ground ball skills will rapidly develop and improve, however it is a difficult environment for a brand new player to learn and become comfortable with lacrosse fundamentals. Therefore we do not allow first-time players in Box.

   

WHO

Boys born in years 2005 - 2012 who have a minimum of one season of competitive field or box lacrosse experience.

(Advanced players with box experience may qualify for competitive travel tournament play with the 2020-21 Avalanche Winter Box League. Find out more here.)
