3d Tri-State Winter 2019/20 Box Select Try-Outs
3d Tri-State is excited to announce our Box Select Tryouts for Winter 2019/20! We will be holding tryouts earlier than normal this year, in July. This tryout will be open to boys graduating 2022-2027. Each age group will have 2 days of tryouts- it is encouraged to attend both dates, but not mandatory. Players are encouraged to come out for training with 3d Lacrosse and immerse themselves in a unique teaching and learning experience.
** all returning players must register for, and attend, this tryout if they wish to play on the team again the upcoming year.
We are committed to delivering a superior experience for players and families looking for more than what is typically offered in the market place. Our level of instruction is unique and unlike anything most players have ever experienced. Our ability to develop players is unparalleled in the lacrosse training landscape today. Our mission is simple: develop individual players to their full potential. 3d Box Select is a nationwide training, player development and team experience that embraces box-only play and instruction created by coaches with decades of professional box experience. This is a winter only program that will deliver the best of both worlds – top flight instruction and also the opportunity to compete. Teams will have 6 practices and play in 2 tournaments.
What is box lacrosse?
Box lacrosse is a 5-on-5, non-stop, fast-paced, high-touch and high-repetition game played inside of a hockey rink with boards and a 4-by-4-foot goal. When taught the correct way, players will experience tremendous skill development in the box which translates to the field as a leader, thinker, and skilled playmaker. It is simply the fastest engine of skill development in the sport.
Why box lacrosse?
Box lacrosse is the perfect environment in which players can grow their skills, game IQ, and confidence. Playing in a rink or "the box" means the ball is never out of bounds and it moves fluidly the entire time, with possessions usually exchanged rapidly. The small confines of playing in the box forces players to be creative in their play since you have limited space in which to operate. Playing in the box give players countless reps in practice, and the fast-paced, back-and-forth nature of box lacrosse gives players the opportunity to build their confidence as they become more comfortable handling the ball. Offensive players will learn individual skills such as deceptive shots using body and stick fakes and variety of releases. They will also learn team concepts such as the two-man pick-and-roll game. Defensive players will handle the ball as much as offensive players through box lacrosse training. Defenders will increase their stick skills, footwork, and communication skills that are necessary to be successful in the box and on the field.
