Youth Box Lacrosse League

2019 Spring Indoor Boys Box Lacrosse Information

Our players will play in  Great Northern Lacrosse (GNLL) Boys Youth Pre-Season Box League which is played with the US Lacrosse Rules, which is the same as previous years. This is a hybrid game between field and box.  This means that the participants will NOT be playing "real" box lacrosse, which means there will not be the following:
  • Players will not be allowed to cross-check.
  • There will be no 30-second shot clock.
  • The rules will be similar to the previous years of the YBL.
  • Players will not need to purchase bicep or kidney pads.

The purpose of this league is to develop lacrosse skills for all participants and that they have fun in a safe environment. This is great preparation for playing real box lacrosse and enhancing players overall lacrosse skills and IQ!

Age Levels

U10: Born 9/1/2008 through 8/31/2010
U12: Born 9/1/2006 through 8/31/2008
U14: Born 6/1/2004 through 8/31/2006

Teams will be picked by friend/carpool requests and by grade level to equal out teams by ability.  Players skill level will not be a factor when teams are made. 

Since we have so few practices for box lacrosse, it is not recommended for first time lacrosse players.  The choice is always yours, but that is our recommendation.

REFUND POLICY

WBLAX will issue a 100% refund on requests made prior to registration closing (minus Sport NGIN processing fee). 75% refund between the time that registration closes and practices start, and NO refund once practices start.  WBLAX will issue refund requests for injuries and special circumstances - on a case by case basis once games have started.

2019 Box League Schedule

March 16 - April 20, 2019 are the official dates.  We will ask not to have games until March 23rd due to our spring break. Games run on Saturdays & Sundays (6 weekends in total) between 8:00 a.m. and 8:O0 p.m.  As of now all games will be played at Northeast Ice Arena in Minneapolis.  


Box Practice Location and Dates

Box practices will be held at the Loons Training Center in Roseville. Because of the lack of Dome availability, hosting practices here is easier to schedule, allows for a more convenient location and is more cost effective for our association.  We are looking into having a few practices at The Hippodrome in White Bear Lake. 

Practice dates and times:

We are looking to hold practices on Mondays, Wednesdays, and/or Fridays between March 18th and April 5th.  Actual dates and times have yet to be set.
