Playing Box Lacrosse is an excellent way for players to increase their finer lacrosse skills. By playing on a smaller field players will be forced to handle the ball more frequently than in a normal game, learn to make quicker decisions and create opportunities in tighter windows. At the same time playing outside in the open air allows players to participate in a fall sport where they can be distanced from one another. Fall box lacrosse will cater to three different age groups. High School Upperclassmen in grades 12 and 11. High School Underclassmen in grades 10 and 9. As well as middle school for players in grades 8, 7 and 6.
The league will start on September 15th and run every Tuesday until October 27th on the Orange County Sports Plex’s turf field. Some High School Junior/Sr Games will take place on Monday Nights from 8:00pm- 8:45 pm. The address of the sports plex is 101 Meadowlands Dr, Hillsborough, NC 27278. The cost of fall box lacrosse is $150 for the 7 weeks of play.
The format of our box lacrosse league is 5v5 lacrosse. Players will need to play a modified version of lacrosse with smaller goals and on a 70 yard by 40 yard field. The game will consist of two running 20 minute halves with a 3 minute half time in between. Take out checks are not allowed in box lacrosse and all penalties will result in a 60 second man up opportunity for the other team. Each player will also receive a Hilltopper box lacrosse penny.
To maximize play and opportunity on the field each team will be composed of no more than 13 players. When possible players of the same schools will be put on the same team. If a team does not have a goalie for a game we will try to replace them with a goalie from the previous team, however, we will also supply goalie gear for the team to pick their own goalie.
