The Denver USBOXLA box lacrosse program, powered by LXTC, is comprised of box lacrosse camps, clinics, tournaments and Denver Elite box teams. The Denver USBOXLA programs are hosted at both outdoor and indoor rinks in the Denver area. Playing box lacrosse is one of the reasons that young Canadian players have such great stick work and are dominating the game at the college and professional level. With the leadership of Matt Brown, who grew up in Vancouver, LXTC is now bringing that same box opportunity to young Colorado players. There is simply no better way to improve upon fundamentals, stick work, athleticism and toughness than to play box lacrosse. Through the various training programs throughout the year, top players are selected to play on the Denver Elite box teams that compete all over North America in the USBOXLA, the top club box lacrosse association in the country.
FALL 2023 DENVER ELITE BOX TRAINING
LXTC Lacrosse is offering box lacrosse training for players from 2nd to 4th Grade.
Box lacrosse is the best way for young players to enhance their skills. 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.
