TC Youth Box League: U10 Age Bracket (2021 season)

What Top NCAA Coaches Say About Box Lacrosse

“If I had my choice, I would have every player under the age of 12 play box lacrosse exclusively or at least a majority of the time.  The number of touches of the ball and the ability to develop better stick skills in a game of box lacrosse far surpasses what happens on a field."

Bill Tierney, 7x NCAA DI Champion, Head Coach for University of Denver

 

"When you watch Canadian kids score, when you see their skill level around the cage, you wonder to yourself, 'Jeez, are we teaching kids [in the U.S.] the wrong things?"

-Coach Dom Starsia, 4x NCAA Champion, Head coach for University of Virginia
