3d NE South is excited to again be offering high level Box Lacrosse Training this upcoming Winter 2020 – 2021 Season.  This winter we will be extending our box lacrosse training to players through the formation of our 3d NE SOUTH BOX SELECT TEAMS.  We will offer 4 Box Teams comprised for those players who wish to take their development to the next level.  Box lacrosse training remains the greatest accelerant of lacrosse skill development. 

We are excited to be in our 6th year of running true box concepts and principles through our training 3d Lacrosse Methodology as a way to strengthen player development and lacrosse IQ. The tempo of practices and the box environment will prepare each player for play in highly competitive box tournaments. Each team will learn the nuances of the box game including: 5-man offensive, 5-man defense, 2-man game, 3-man game, Box man up, Box man down, Face offs, transition offense and defense, on ball screens and picks, off ball screens and picks, and total team concepts.

Other skills that will be focusing on: Faking / Catching in traffic / Team defensive concepts / Deceptive shooting / Feeding / Defensive footwork / Dodging in tight confines / Cutting / Cycling / Picking / Screening / Power Play.

COVID CONCERNS

We will take all COVID precautions very seriously which will include but not be limited to the following.  Play this year will be limited to ONE field.  Players MUST wear a FACE MASK at all times entering and exiting the facility and field.  Parents will not be permitted in the facility without special permission to reduce the number of people inside the facility.  On Field During Game Play – Masks and/or Full Face Shields are highly encouraged during game play but will not be required.  All players MUST complete a COVID Self Check Questionnaire prior to each game and we MAY be taking temperatures of ALL players prior to starting practice.  Players Bench areas will be spaced out to allow more room between players.  GOALIE PADS:  Each team will be issued a single set of Goalie Pads – leg pads, chest protector, goalie pants and gloves – that will ONLY BE USED by that TEAM and that team’s goalie. There will BE NO SHARING OF GOALIE EQUIPMENT!  Ultimately, staying safe during these challenging times will fall 100% on the individual players to be accountable, responsible and respectful of all the rules in place at all times – not just during our Box Games.
