What is Box Lacrosse?

Box lacrosse is an indoor version of the game of lacrosse which has a long and storied history in Canada. Lacrosse is a traditional indigenous people's game that has been played for hundreds of years. Box lacrosse is a modern version of the game that was invented in Canada in the early 1900s. Currently box lacrosse is played throughout Canada with associations found in virtually every province. In Alberta, there are close to 10,000 thousand registered box lacrosse players in the province. Box Lacrosse is played on a standard sized arena floor and features 6 players (goaltender and five runners) of a 15-20 player team (U9 and above) on the floor at one time.

The strategy of Lacrosse is similar to that of basketball, with all five runners involved in the offence and the defence. Added to the appeal are the speed and excitement created by a 30-second shot clock. The combination of action and reaction makes Box as much fun to play as it is to watch. Box Lacrosse is played almost exclusively in Canada, with annual National Championships occurring at seven levels. The award of the premiere junior (17-21 year old) championship is the Minto Cup, while the best senior players in Canada (over 21) play for the Mann Cup.

There are currently over 47,000 Box players in Canada. Both males and females play this version of Lacrosse and the ages of competition range from 5-65 years.
