WHAT IS BOX LACROSSE?

Box lacrosse, also known as indoor lacrosse and sometimes shortened to boxla, LAX, or simply box, is an indoor version of lacrosse played mostly in North America.  The game originated in Canada, where it is the most popular version of the game played in contrast to the traditional field lacrosse game.  

It is played between two teams of six players each, and is traditionally played on an ice hockey rink once the ice has been removed or covered.  The playing area is called a box,  in contrast to the open playing field of field lacrosse.  The object of the game is to use a long handled racket, known as a lacrosse stick, to catch, carry, and pass the ball in an effort to score by ultimately hurling a solid rubber lacrosse ball into an opponent’s goal.

At the highest level box lacrosse is represented by the Senior A divisions of the Canadian Lacrosse Association (Western Lacrosse Association of the British Columbia Lacrosse Association and Major Series Lacrosse of the Ontario Lacrosse Association), and the National Lacrosse League.*

TBLC are proud to have had many minor/junior players who currently play in the WLA, MSL or the National Lacrosse League.

    CONVENORS NEEDED!

    In order to run a successful House League program, we require Convenors for each age division at Kew.

     WEEKLY DUTIES:

    • Be the on-site point person for the full duration of the division session each week (3 hours at Kew).
    • Ensure the smooth running of each session and be on hand to answer questions from parents and coaches.
    • Watch for any problems that may arise during the session and report them to the VP of House League if necessary.

    Being a Convenor is not a large time commitment and the season is only 9 weeks long, but it is a vital role to ensure the smooth running of the House League.  Convening is a great way to get involved with Beaches Lacrosse with minimal time commitment.  Position can be shared among a couple of parents too.

    If you are interested, please contact Margaret Patience at vphouseleaguebox@beacheslacrosse.com as soon as possible for more information.
