Victory Lacrosse’s U9 box lacrosse league is now open for registration. Find out more below!
The purpose of the Mini-Tyke and Tyke leagues is to introduce, emphasize, and develop the fundamental skills of lacrosse. The focus of practices as well as games is to promote an environment that encourages participation, skill development, and overall enjoyment of the game.
On The Importance of Box…
“If I was US Lacrosse, I wouldn’t let any kids play field until they were 10 or 12.” – Bill Tierney, Head Coach, University of Denver.
“When you watch Canadian kids score, when you see their skill level around the cage, you wonder to yourself, ‘jeez, are we teaching kids [in the US] the wrong things?” – Dom Starsia, Head Coach, University of Virginia.
“It’s not the fairy dust principle – that all you have to do is add some glass and boards and play for 8 weeks in the winter…it takes real teaching, and a commitment to learn the indoor principles and the biomechanics.” – Johnny Mouradian, Head Coach & GM, Philadelphia Wings, National Lacrosse League.
These are a few examples of why teaching box is more important than kids simply playing a form of lacrosse in confined spaces. By putting your son in this program you are setting him up for the very best education experience possible. True to form box lacrosse education is our priority with this program to ensure each player receives a solid, accurate, authentic foundation for their lacrosse skill set moving forward.
