About DEWLAX BOX LAX
PLAY LIKE A GIRL!
While box lacrosse continues to grow in popularity in the US, DEWLAX has created a premier Girls Box Lax League in New Jersey!
The DEWLAX BOX Lacrosse program is an opportunity for girls to experience fast paced and exciting Box Lacrosse. We will focus on educating our athletes to the speed and skill needed in a box area during the off season and translating those skills to the field!
Training is included for all DEWLAX athletes.
Why Box Lax?
IT'S FAST AND FUN
A main reason for the growth in popularity of box lacrosse is that players get more time with the ball to improve their stick skills because the ball rarely goes out of play.
Operating in tighter spaces with less reaction time boosts everyone’s field game. A player’s shooting skills grow as they shoot on smaller nets against goalies wearing more equipment. The indoor game is simply quicker up and down the turf, which improves all-around athleticism and fitness.
What to Expect -
Box season info
Our goal is to create high quality Girls Box Lax teams that will emerge with higher level stick skills and cognitive recognition of the game of lacrosse that will translate to the field.
Box Lacrosse is played inside a rink with boundaries and equipment. There are numerous benefits for the girls including stronger stick control, a better understanding of off ball movement and working in space.
