Box Lacrosse was added to the AAU Sports lineup about four
years ago, compared to the ten years that AAU has hosted lacrosse events. The
first ever box lacrosse league in the AAU was added recently and the numbers
for lacrosse continue to grow.
The difference between lacrosse and box lacrosse is small,
but distinctive. Box lacrosse is mostly played in cold weather climates since
it is played indoors. Rather than the traditional lacrosse field, box lacrosse
is traditionally played on an ice hockey rink after it has been covered with
artificial turf. The playing area is called a box, instead of an open playing
field. Box lacrosse is also between two teams of six, not ten, and features
smaller sticks and goals on a smaller field. Box lacrosse tends to be slightly
more violent than regular lacrosse since “checking” is allowed.
So far this year, the sport of lacrosse has already grown
exponentially, with the help of box lacrosse members.
