See below for Summer Lacrosse options that include Box Lacrosse in Leominster or Field Lacrosse in Shrewsbury. Participation in these may be on an individual basis or collectively as a Wachusett team. Feel free to contact me if you would like to coordinate and coach a team or get more information on either program.
What is Box Lacrosse: Box Lacrosse was developed in Canada in the 1930’s as a way to utilize unused hockey arenas during the summer months. Box Lax has sometimes been referred to as the fastest sport on two feet. The game is played with two teams of six players, and played in a hockey rink, often times referred to as “The Box”.
