Phila Box

Box lacrosse improves a player’s decision-making speed, stick skills, situational awareness, and off-ball movement. These specific skills are why Canadian players—the creators and masters of box lacrosse—have been so successful at the collegiate level. Phila Box develops these skills through a box-specific curriculum taught by coaches with box experience and playing in highly competitive winter box tournaments with our Phila A's box teams.

WHY BOX?

Box Lacrosse teaches players how to execute plays in a physical, fast paced environment. Players must play both sides of the ball, broadening skill sets, lax IQ and overall toughness.

BOX PROFILE

The Phila A's field teams at five different age groups (HS Varsity, HS JV, 7/8th, 5/6th & 3/4th) with elite coaches, curriculum, and events that will directly impact each participant's overall lacrosse IQ.
