SUMMER BOX LAX AT SOUTH PARK IS BACK!!

We are proud to once again offer summer box lacrosse leagues for Middle School, High School and Men's. We are featuring 30-second shot clocks, using US Lacrosse Box rules, experienced box coaches and will have an EMT on-site for all games.  

PGHBOXLAX leagues will play Wednesday nights; June 22, 29 July 6, 13, 20, 27 with a raindate of August 3rd. The price per player for the six week session is only $95.00 for all players in either of our leagues.  In addition, a current US Lacrosse membership is REQUIRED to register for any of the summer PGHBOXLAX  leagues.  US Lacrosse membership annual rates vary due to age group and are non-refundable.  Go here to find more info about US Lacrosse membership: https://www.uslacrosse.org/membership

PGHBOXLAX league open teams are limited to 16 runners and one goalie.  Our goal is to field evenly-talented teams to ensure competitive play each week.  Box goalie equipment will be provided.  US Lacrosse Box/Indoor rules will apply with 6 v 6 play.  Games are two 24-minute running time halves.  All players must wear full lacrosse equipment including athletic cup and mouth guard - rib pads and bicep pads are optional but encouraged for box lacrosse play.  South Park Rink surface will be "sport court" so regular sneakers are best.  NO cleats as this is not a turf surface!! 

And, AS always, GOALIES PLAY FREE (but must also have USL membership)!!! Goalies please email pghboxlacrosse@gmail.com for more info.
