DU PIONEERS WINTER BOX TRAINING
SESSION ONE: November 10th - December 15th, 2019
SESSION TWO: JANUARY 12th - FEBRUARY 9TH, 2020
The Pioneers are offering box lacrosse training for players of all age levels. Box Lacrosse is the best way for young players to learn how to play the game. There are fewer players at one time on the box floor so players receive more touches with the ball; the walls keep the ball in play which naturally increases the tempo of the game; players develop their stick skills at an accelerated rate by playing in tighter spaces; and it is fun to play ! The Canadians grew up playing mostly Box Lacrosse and it shows through their skill set on the traditional field of play. If you are dedicated to accelerating your game and learning excellent techniques and drills to improve your individual skills, then join us at the APEX FIELD HOUSE which has two full sized rinks with sport turf and is perfect for our training sessions during the winter season.
DU Pioneers Box Lacrosse Programs and Denver Elite Box Teams are inaugural members of the United States Box Lacrosse Associate (USBOXLA). All participants need to have a USBOXLA membership. LXTC Box Programs are the only organization in Colorado that allows players to play true box lacrosse.
