Samurai Winter Middle School Box League is starting on February 1st! This is our 4th year offering this recreational league- it is sure to bring some new found joy in 2021! Six teams will be formed based on your Middle School Spring team. We are also offering a “House” team for those that do not play on a CYC or SLYA spring team. The purpose of this league is for players to enjoy games only to better prepare and “tune-up” for the spring season. For those that do not know about Box Lacrosse, the game is played indoors (at Vett Manchester). The game is played with 5 runners and 1 goalie. The runners play both offense and defense with short sticks (no defensive sticks allowed). Goals are much smaller 4×4 with Goalies equipped head to toe in similar pads to that of a hockey goalie. No additional equipment is required to participate but players are encouraged to use rib pads and purchase a face-shield ($20) to avoid having to wear a mask indoors.

The league fee is only $125! Players will play on Monday nights from 6:30-9:30 p.m. for six consecutive weeks. The leagues starts February 1st and ends on March 8th. This is a great way to get in shape and dust off your stick skills while having fun with your teammates! Learn more under WINTER PROGRAMS and sign-up today!
