Box-Out Lacrosse is offering both a camp and tournament this July at Yale University in New Haven, Conn.
The Box-Out Lacrosse Camp, scheduled for July 1-2, is designed to introduce field players to box lacrosse in an outdoor setting. The benefits of box lacrosse have been widely documented and the game is starting to catch on in the states. Box-Out also offers Lacrosse Camp Lite on July 3, an abridged version of the two-day curriculum.
Box Out is a one-of-a-kind box lacrosse experience where you get more touches, more lacrosse, more action, and more fun than you’ve had in any tournament you’ve ever attended.
You play real box lacrosse, outdoors, in the fresh air.

Many of the best goal scorers in the NCAA field game honed their craft playing box lacrosse. In fact, most of the top 10 goal scorers in NCAA history hail from Canada where the box game is played. What are the benefits:
- Immeasurably more touches in the box game meaning more opportunity to get better.
- The goals are much smaller than field goals, which makes scoring difficult which further increases skill.
- All players play all the time. There is no “other end” of the field. It’s faster, and more challenging than field lacrosse.
- Confined spaces force players to work hard at their stick protection and greatly augments skill development in a comparatively short period of time.
- More action equals WAY more fun.
Box-Out Lacrosse started as a tournament company but quickly realized that teaching the game of box lacrosse is a priority too. Box-Out Lacrosse Camp and Box-Out Lacrosse Camp Lite are restricted to 180 players. It will accept no more than 30 players in each box,and will restrict each division to 30 players. If interest dictates, it may open a second group in one age division. The two day session includes specialized box lacrosse drills and instruction and many small game scenarios as well as actual box lacrosse games.
