Girls Box Lacrosse


In our quest to develop top national players, we offer box lacrosse training  for all MN Elite 7-12th grade teams!   Different than other clubs we provide full, authentic box equipment as we suit up to get better, faster through fall/winter clinics and games.  You train with your MN Elite field team in box and not a different roster.  

Box lacrosse promotes precision passing, tighter stick skills, faster thinking with maximum ball reps on an indoor, smaller field.  There are no additional costs to MN Elite players, box lacrosse is included in your training.

Danita Stroup - Canadian U19 World Cup Champion and Northwestern University field player: “Playing box lacrosse, playing in such a tight space with so few players has really helped my game and my vision going into field lacrosse. Seeing how open everything is and handling the ball in box lacrosse in such a tight space and then being able to handle it in such an open space has really helped and increased my stick skills even more.”

6X NCAA Championship Coach Bill Tierney, University of Denver  "If I had my choice, I would have every player under the age of 12 play box lacrosse exclusively or at least a majority of the time.  The number of touches of the ball and the ability to develop better stick skills in a game of box lacrosse far surpasses what happens on a field.  Learning how to pass and catch in traffic, understanding how to shoot, and developing a sense of physicality are all positive traits developed by the box game.”

4X NCAA Championship Coach Dom Starsia, University of Virginia: "When you watch Canadian kids score, when you see their skill level around the cage, you wonder to yourself, 'Jeez, are we teaching kids [in the U.S.] the wrong things?"

Andy Shay, Yale Head Coach:  "Box lacrosse (played normally in Canada) is played in thawed ice rinks over the summer.  The smaller spaces and smaller goals lend to hyper advancement of skills and scoring ability.  The results in our college game are not only undeniable, they are borderline astounding."
