Videos, Pictures and Testimonials from Box Season

The weather has been perfect for the first three weeks of the box lacrosse season. Coach Wiles, Turner and Hopper and Whitlow are enforcing fundamental and essential principles and skills for any age player.  We are seeing a marked improvement in stick skills, lacrosse IQ, game awareness, and speed of the players coming each week. The coaching staff is second to none and incredible experienced (scroll down to see coaching staff). Players are having a blast with the uptempo nature and increased reps of box lacrosse!!!! Not to mention the weather has been great the last few weekends!

Uptempo + Reps = Tons of Fun!!

The uptempo nature of box lacrosse practice makes it tons of fun for players (and coaches)!!! Players get tons of more touches than they normally would and in new, challening scenarios in the box. 

The amount of touches players get during each practice is like nothing else they can get - it's the eqvuialent of taking a 3 hour practice and condensing it into 1.5 hours. Players come off the floor exhausted - the conditioning aspect of box lacrosse is REAL!

Making Memories and Having a Blast!

The development is real and happening every practice and they are having a blast!! Parents and coaches are having a blast watching the scrimmages after the teaching - parents will line opposite the benches to watch the games. Players come off after shooutouts or games with smiles and so do the coaches Everyone is developing and having a blast so far!

 We could not be more impressed by the level of coaching and development our son is receiving on the Weekends! We enjoy watching the games as well!

Coach Wiles, Turner and Hopper are giving these boys the teaching we can't get anywhere else. Our son is making HUGE strides in his game and it's only been 3 weeks!
