For many reasons, box lacrosse participation numbers are growing in the United States, with more boys’ and girls’ youth and high school players than ever before. It’s a trend that has not escaped the attention of many high-profile coaches who whole-heartedly support this version of the game.

1. Player Development

This is a broad category that includes everything from stick skills to game intelligence. Coaches cite the smaller goals (typically 4×4) and larger goalie pads as key components in forcing players to develop pinpoint accuracy with their shots. Additionally, since everyone uses short sticks and plays both ends of the field, players must become adept at scooping ground balls, dodging defenders, and passing and catching in traffic.

2. Pace of the Game

With a short shot clock and no out-of-bounds, the ball is constantly in play. The action does not stop nearly as often as it does in the field game. That faster pace, combined with fewer players per side, means that all players touch the ball more frequently. A coach doesn’t have to be in the Hall of Fame to know that the more times a player has the ball in his stick, the better. Repetition is one of the keys to skill development.

3. The Balance Between Physical and Creative

Since box is played in a smaller space than field lacrosse, the players are constantly operating in tight quarters. Obviously, that translates into more contact between players. Offensively, players must learn the art of protecting their stick with body positioning, understanding spacing, and learn how to fire shots around nearby defenders.
