All PGHBOXLAX league open teams are limited to 17 runners and one goalie. Families may request for their players to play on teams together and we will do our best to accommodate all teaming/carpool requests. Our goal is to field evenly-talented teams to ensure competitive play each week. Box goalie equipment will be provided. USBOXLA rules will apply with 6 v 6 play. No cross-checking or boarding. Games are three 15 minute running time periods. One game per team per night. Players must wear full equipment including athletic cup, mouth guard - rib pads and bicep pads are optional but encouraged. Iceoplex surface will be turf for all PGHBOXLAX sessions through Feb 2018. Cleats or turf shoes are appropriate, sneakers may not provide adequate traction on the turf surface.
