There is no denying the fact that box lacrosse is popular right now especially after Canada dismantled Team USA in field lacrosse at the 2014 World Games in Denver. Every player on Team Canada has a box lacrosse background. Also just about every top D1, D2 and D3 NCAA team has amazing Canadians who have played more box than field lacrosse. Colleges are heavily recruiting players with box skills because they know how much it makes them a better field player.

The Capital North Stars will have experienced box coaches (see website for BIOS) teaching the box game properly. All players will be given and wear full proper box pads which are FAR MORE PROTECTIVE than outdoor pads. The Capital North Stars will play the game like the youth plays in Canada. No modifications to suit Americans. The true Canadian game is unique and has so many positive aspects that translates easily to the field game...ultimately making EVERY player better at field lacrosse.

Register today for tryouts and have a lot fun playing a new sport this winter! If you play you will be so much more prepared and so much better by the spring season that your coaches will be incredibly impressed!
