Notable

  • Players will get 1 hour and 40 minutes for practice and games on each date - rather than 50 minutes for 10 weeks. (e.g. a 50 minute practice and 50 minute games each session)
  • There will be more practice on the earlier dates and less on the later dates.  The final date will be playoffs
  • The first week will include an overview of Box Lacrosse (field, rules, etc)
  • A full schedule will be out before the season so players can plan their calendars.

Coaches
Burning River Lacrosse's directors / coaches some of the area’s top college coaches, high school coaches, and college players (BR Alumni). Burning River's coaches are focused on the goal of improving a player’s individual / fundamental stick skills, his positional skill set (Attack, Midfield, Defense and Goaltending), and his understanding of team concepts (Transition and Set Piece Offense and Defense) play.  We do this by spending the vast majority of our coaching time teaching techniques and fundamentals in individual or small group sessions.

All our coaches are BOX certified and / or have experience playing Canadian Box Lacrosse at a high level.

Equipment (Field Players) - Rib Guards & Bicep Pads Are NEEDED!
Field players need to purchase / find the following:

  • 1) rib guards, and
  • 2) kidney / bicep pads.

These are not optional in Canadian Box Lacrosse and you will be happy that you got them. You can find them online or we have a limited number of new Rib Guards ($45) and bicep pads ($35) available on a first come first served basis. You can purchase them when you register or by emailing us directly at info@brlax.net.

Note - You also need to wear all your regular equipment including (helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves, athletic cup, mouth piece, and stick).

 

Equipment (Goalies) - We provide the gear.

  • Goalies need to wear full box goalie gear (looks like hockey gear).
  • Since the gear runs $1,500+ we will provide all the goalies with the gear.
  • Goalies do however, need to bring their helmet, gloves and stick.

 

Shoes

  • The field is old fashioned turf so wear your sneakers, not your cleats.

 

Medical Insurance
Burning River does not provide medical insurance. All players must have their own medical insurance.
