LA Box Lacrosse League Kicks Off Next Weekend

2 - Published September 14, 2012 by in

The LA Box Lacrosse League, run by Mira Costa High School head coach and Leverage Lacrosse director Chris Jewett along with Palisades Charter High School head coach Scott Hylen, kicks off its season next weekend in Torrance!

This is the league’s second year, and it offers divisions for third grade through varsity. The league plays under the rules and sanctioning of US Box Lacrosse, which is much closer to “real” Canadian-style box lacrosse than most American indoor leagues.

After last week’s SoCal Box Immersion Camp, conducted in partnership with 3d Lacrosse, the LA Box League officially starts with an educational clinic for all players and coaches this Saturday, Sept. 15. Games start Sept. 22-23, with the regular season running until the first weekend of December, when the League Championship Tournament will take place. The league also hopes to bring in some professional Canadian players to run a clinic during a “bye” weekend without games. After the completion of the league, LA Box Lacrosse plans to take All-Star teams to San Francisco for the California Box Finals.

    I think that what it will take is a creative mind, some cash and a network such as NBC or ESPN to start highlighting it as a mainstream sport, and to stick with it for a while beacuse the growth probably will not be immediate.

    This sounds crazy but, move lacrosse season to football season because with all of this bounty stuff gooing on, football will slowly lose its participants as parents wont want to deal with that.  Also I know a lot of people that play lacrosse and baseball, and when they get to high school they have to choose. Some pick lax some pick baseball. If we move it to football season that wont happen. And if nfl ever has another lockout lax will get its chance. Just a radical thought
