MovinUp Lacrosse is excited to have our very own Indoor Box Lacrosse League. Each week two teams will be evenly split up. Teams will have a desired coach for the day helping with all lacrosse skills. Games will be an hour long in length, with score being kept. All Indoor Box Lacrosse National Rules will be enforced. Sneakers must be worn “no cleats.” All equipment must be worn including mouth piece. You will not be allowed on the field if you are not fully equipped. We have cut the number of registrations down to insure enough playing time for each player. This will be a lot of fun and we look forward to seeing you there.
The tight confines, reps, smaller nets and fast pace of the game helps develop a different skill set than traditional outdoor only players.

What is Box Lacrosse?
Box lacrosse, also known as indoor lacrosse, is played in hockey rinks with the ice removed. Two teams of six players and a goalie, similar to hockey, compete against one another. The nets are 4’X4’ rather than a traditional 6’x6’ and goalies use their bodies and padding like a hockey goalie to stop shots. Players are always near the ball.
Why Play Box Lacrosse?
Over the past 5 years, there has been an explosion of Canadians entering the NCAA. College coaches took notice after the 2006 world championships in which Canada beat the US for the first time in over 30 years.
“Box lacrosse has made me a better overall lacrosse player. Indoor has improved my field game and playing it has increased my passion for the sport.”
– Casey Powell, former All-American and US National Team Captain
