Box LAX Tournament
Players and Parents:
In our efforts to promote and grow the sport of Box Lacrosse in the NEPA, NortheastLAX is offering the opportunity for 11 to 17 players that were born in 2001 and 2002 and 2003, to play in a Box Lacrosse Tournament in Albany, NY on August 15th and 16th. This includes 1-2 goalies and 10-15 runners (field players). The cost for this unique opportunity is only $135.00, which includes practices on August 2, 5, 9, 12 and the 2 day Box LAX tournament.
Focus of the Tournament - The focus of this offer and tournament will be for NEPA lacrosse players to LEARN Box Lacrosse! Players will learn how to play Box Lacrosse including: how difficult it is to compete with experienced teams, how well other teams play, how physical Box Lacrosse really is, the rules of Box Lacrosse (they will be using Canadian rules), how they play individually as well as on a (relatively) impromptu team, what they need to do to become a better Box player, more...... In summary, while I am hoping that the team will do well, I anticipate that the tournament will be very challenging for the team since ALL other teams will be experienced (Canadian Teams will be in attendance) and Box LAX is new to all NEPA players. However, I believe that attending the tournament would help our local players IMMENSELY in understanding Box Lacrosse and with becoming better at playing Box Lacrosse!
Beyond this tournament - NortheastLAX plans to continue to grow the sport of Box Lacrosse as the sport is exploding in popularity in the US. We plan to offer Box LAX Leagues and Box LAX Teams, and even if you miss out on this great opportunity, you will have a chance to play the amazingly fast sport of Box Lacrosse in the coming months and years!
