Here at the US Box Lacrosse Academy we pride ourselves on the authenticity of product we deliver and the level of importance we place on developing young players though our Canadian style Box Lacrosse curriculum. Our directors share a unique knowledge and passion for this game that is transferred through to all participants.
Our directors have not only introduced this Canadian game to American youth, they have also hosted Canada’s first youth box clubs in tournament play and have successfully developed the first wave of American youth Box Lacrosse players that can compete against Canada’s best.
Our directors draw upon their unique experiences during their extraordinary lacrosse careers at International play, Division 1 NCAA, professional MLL and NLL leagues to develop a curriculum designed specifically for a field trained player’s successful transformation to Box. Our goal is to kick start your Box Lacrosse program through our passion, knowledge and proven player development success.
US BOX Lacrosse Academy Player Development
US Box Lacrosse Academy provides our Students with the most COMPLETE lacrosse skills training & innovative training methods available:
EXCLUSIVE US BOX LACROSSE ACADEMY FEATURES
On Floor Skills Training Session
Players will receive our innovative “Box Lacrosse” Player Development Skills Training. To maximize skills development, we teach in small groups, broken down by age & skill level. Each station highlights a critical Box Lacrosse skill and allows for high repetition and 1 on 1 instruction.
Players will conclude each day with a fun/competitive 4BallPRO Style, 4 v 4 tournament. Teams will consist of approximately 8 players, plus 1 goaltender. This competitive format accelerates skills growth and confidence by exposing players to repetitive game situation battles. Players will benefit from increased ‘ball possession’ and time directly involved with the play. 4BallPRO is an amazing tool in the Box development of an American field player.
We teach advanced lacrosse concepts. To maximize comprehension, each day begins and ends with a group focus session discussing, further explaining and outlining instructed concepts. We then pre-view the following day’s curriculum (for multiple day camps)

Both a USBOXLA Level 1 Referee Certification Clinic and a USBOXLA Level 1 Coaches Certification Clinic can run in unison with the USBOXLA Academy.
