Nothing is going to help forget the mess that has been the year 2020 like a good crosscheck on a Saturday morning or a full-speed crease dive to win the game in OT. Box lacrosse can provide us that escape and luckily PrimeTime Lacrosse has a pair of USBOXLA sanctioned boys box lacrosse tournaments on the horizon for winter.
Why Box Lacrosse?
We don’t want to wear out the record. Everyone and their brother is finally endorsing box lacrosse as a crucial pillar in lacrosse development.
A game of finesse, box lacrosse instills soft hands when catching in tight spaces, but it also forces players to pick the ball up quicker in traffic, to think offensively and defensively in transition and the value it brings to a shooter’s arsenal is unparalleled.
Here’s the best part: it’s wicked fun. Like, a whole new world of an experience if you’ve never been a part of it.
From the shot clocks forcing quick decisions to the boards immediately returning errant passes and shots, a box lacrosse tournament is the most rapid-fire, head-spinning weekend you can have in lacrosse. Whether you’re playing or watching, you’ll spend the next
week month thinking about it.
Kicking Off in Virginia!
The 2020 Galactic Games were just too exciting to not add a second box event to the winter calendar and PrimeTime found the perfect spot to end 2020 on a good note. The Virginia Beach Field House provides the perfect meeting place for teams all over the eastern seaboard and the competition at the Virginia Beach Box Classic is going to be worth any team traveling in for.
A two-day event on December 5-6 for boys with grad years 2021-2028, each squad gets two games each day with qualifying teams playing a fifth match for the championship. The massive, state-of-the-art field house will be able to run four games simultaneously with ease. Fit with dining options of its own, the facility is also seated at the edge of countless of other restaurant and retail options to pass the downtime. Inside the box the competition is the real deal. USBOXLA events mean real box, real rules and no cut-corners. This isn’t some make-it-take-it modified field lacrosse jamboree, this is hard-nosed, fast-paced excitement ready to propel athletes to the next level.
The Virginia Beach Box Classic is definitely a can’t-miss event. If you’d like to register for the weekend, click the button below to visit the tournament page and register by hitting “Register Now.”
Meet Us in New England!
After a successful first run in February, the Galactic Games have returned and are ready to launch 2021 on a high note. Regardless of age group, the Galactic Games pack three games into one day of action to give a full tourney experience without the hassle of committing an entire weekend. Boys with grad years of 2025-2028 will compete on Saturday, January 23rd and the 2021-2024 groups on Sunday, January 24th.
The Seacoast United Indoor Arena in Hampton, NH, proved to be such a great host for year one it was an easy choice to return to. Roughly an hour from Boston, Nashua and Portland, the complex is able to give the full box experience on three floors at once to all of New England in one easy day. Just like the last event, this is a full-on USBOXLA showdown. Real refs. Real games. Real box. The opportunities for kids to play in a real box lacrosse tournament in New England are slim to nonexistent and PrimeTime has stepped in to not only fill the void, but offer a world-class event for young athletes to take the game seriously.
