What Is Canadian Box?
To further area players' development as lacrosse players (shooting, dodging in tight confines, cutting / catching in traffic, picking, etc.) we are offering a “Canadian box lacrosse” league for the top High School and Middle School (5th / 6th and 7th / 8th grade Divisions) players in the area this winter (Nov to Feb). We note that the league is Canadian Box because we are using the smaller (4x4) cages, fully padded goalies, a 30 second shot clock and full substitution. The league is not outdoor lacrosse indoors but true BOX lacrosse with full contact. (see video)

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.
