Connecticut Youth Winter Box Lacrosse League 2019
3d New England South is pleased to be bringing our highly successful Connecticut Winter Box Lacrosse League to youth players this January.
Our Prep School CT WBLL is one of the most competitive winter box lacrosse leagues in the country and this January we are taking that same formula of REAL box Training and actual box games to Youth Players Grades 5 & 6.
The Youth Winter Box Lacrosse League will consist of a 4 Teams and 4 games with 3 weeks of a regular season followed by a final week of crowning a Box Champion !
Each team will consist of 15 or more players and a goalie (3d lacrosse will provide goalie gear). Players will receive 45 minutes of training from expert box lacrosse coaches prior to starting game play. Coaches will be teaching how to play the indoor game, the differences in rules, as well as areas that will help your field game. The repetition in drills prior to the games are equally as important, if not more important, than the games themselves. Players will come away with a new understanding of pick and rolls both offensively and defensively as well as learn new moves and techniques which they have an opportunity to work on and showcase in the forty-minute running game.
** All Players will receive a Box Lacrosse Pinney and Winter Beanie. ***

Why Box Lacrosse Training?
Box lacrosse has become quickly recognized as one of the best ways for players to hone in on their skills. The tight confinements of the box playing area, forces players to shoot/pass quicker and faster while still being a deceptive shooter/passer. Box lacrosse is very fundamental, however, there is times when players have to be creative in order to ensure a good pass and/or shot. In 3d lacrosse we have broken down these creative skill sets and our goal is to teach our players how to bring these skills to their field game.
