Westlake High School Box Season 

BOX Lacrosse Season 

This is the second year in a row that we will be playing box lacrosse as a program. This year we will be playing in the Austin Indoor Lacrosse League. We will be playing real box games once a week and will practice once a week.  This will give our players a chance to get better in September and October when it is hard to find good lacrosse during this time of year.  

Practice will be on Tuesdays at the South Austin Soccer zone from 5-7pm starting September 15th and going until October 20th.  Games will be held on Sundays at the South Austin Soccer Zone and the new Crossover Complex in Cedar Park. Our first game in September 20th and the last game will October 25th. Each division in the AILL will play championship games on October 26th and 28th. 

We will be playing real box lacrosse with Canadian style box lacrosse rules.  Cross checking will be used to play defense, set picks and push off of other players.  We will be working on spacing, cutting, faking, finishing and moving off ball. Everything we need to learn to improve as a program can be learned playing box lacrosse. Every skill taught during box training will be a skill that players will be expected to use at the high school level.

This fall, I'll introduce our Westlake boys to box lacrosse and all the skills needed to be successful in the box game.  Below is a list of skills and concepts that will be reviewed in the fall season:

  • Collarbone shooting/passing
  • Finishing 1v1
  • Wind ups
  • Fakes
  • Pick n Rolls
  • Give n Go
  • 1v1 position defense
  • Back door cut/front side cut
  • Off Ball Cycle

Practices will involve hundreds of touches for each player.  Players will learn how to cut, when to cut, how to carry the ball under pressure, how to carry the ball with their heads up and how to play one handed.  Offensive players will play with their sticks to the middle of the field to get better shooting angles.  Box lacrosse is the best tool to teach field players how to finish 1v1 vs. goalies, fake, finish and use shooting deception. All of these little details add up to what we want in our players at Westlake High School.
