OCBLL Crowns 11 New Champions, Announces All Stars

Orange County, CA (October 21, 2019) – The 
Southern California Box Lacrosse League concluded its season this past weekend declaring Champions in each division.

The league began in the beginning of September where over 60 teams each weekend teams compete at three rinks around Orange County – The Rinks Irvine, The Rinks Corona, and Victory Athletic Center. Box Lacrosse is a great change for players in the fall to work on their speed and agility on a smaller enclosed field.

“The SCBLL, the country’s largest box lacrosse league sanctioned by USBOXLA, capped off their season with a fantastic finals weekend that saw 11 different champions crowned. In its 5th year of existence, the SCBLL fielded 63 teams from 5th grade through high school elite. Congrats to all our participants and all our winners!” – Adam Guy, League Director.

“SCBLL is a great opportunity for the players & parents to get together pre-season.  We focus on having fun, being creative and learning a new style of lacrosse play.  It’s taken me about 3 seasons now to finally embrace the moving picks and other differences but We have a lot of fun playing and it’s a nice balance to the high school season.   The organization of SCBLL makes it really easy to play in the fall, and the various locations are all great venues. I’m already looking forward to the next year’s season” — Jon Fox, Foothill HS and OC Crush.
