This year seems to be a progressive one for box lacrosse. I’ve seen more programs and tournaments pop up these past few months than ever before, and even the NLL is getting on board by hosting its first Junior Tournament in Toronto.
It’s all about the kids! More kids play lacrosse today than ever before. Our sport is quickly becoming the #1 choice for young athletes.
