WELCOME TO THUNDERBIRD LACROSSE
Now Registering Players & Teams for
WINTER INDOOR BOX LACROSSE
Thunderbird Lacrosse is offering girls indoor box lacrosse starting in December!!! Box lacrosse is considered by many college and high school coaches to be the “best” way to prepare for the upcoming spring season. We offer 8 games in 4 weekends (plus a make-up weekend) for only $140.00 per player! You may also register as a team for $1250.00.
Most Box lacrosse teams play in hockey rinks or basketball courts during the winter. Thunderbird Box Lacrosse is played on regulation sized indoor turf fields in a climate controlled indoor facility. These fields were designed specifically for lacrosse, with the same turf as outdoor fields.
Box lacrosse is a quicker version of field lacrosse and helps develop better lacrosse players. Box players will be able to enhance some areas of their game such as footwork, stick skills, awareness, and off ball movement.
Why Box Lacrosse?
“If I had my choice, I would have every [youth] player . . . 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.”
-6X NCAA Championship Coach Bill Tierney, University of Denver
We have already filled two teams, and we are looking for a total of 4 to 6 teams this winter. You can sign up individually and be guaranteed to play with your friends or teammates if you prefer! Box lacrosse is fun! But it is also the best way to prepare for your spring season!! Quickly hone your skills while conditioning.
