Box Lacrosse

History of Box Lacrosse

Box Lacrosse is the uniquely Canadian version of lacrosse, which was developed in the early 1930's as the indoor answer to the outdoor game.  The game was developed by a group of hockey promoters; the early rule changes from the field game included reducing the number of players from twelve to seven and playing the game indoors in a hockey rink.   It has achieved considerable success and is the most popular version of lacrosse played in Canada.  Box Lacrosse has also enjoyed tremendous growth in the United States and Australia in recent years.

Box Lacrosse in Saskatchewan

Box Lacrosse in Saskatchewan is growing rapidly with strong clubs in Saskatoon, Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina and Swift Current and new clubs in Assiniboia, Yorkton, Estevan, Rosetown, Biggar, and  Big River.     It is also projected that additional communities will initiate box lacrosse programs in the next few years.  The Box Lacrosse age divisions are similar to those used in hockey with teams playing in the Tyke, Novice, Peewee, Bantam, Midget and Junior divisions.  For further information on becoming involved in participating or developing Box Lacrosse, please contact one of the following clubs or call the Saskatchewan Lacrosse Association office at (306) 780-9216.
