Box Lacrosse is played inside the confines of a multi-sport rink, and has a distinct set of rules, apart from the field game. Each team has six players on the floor -- five runners and one goaltender. Players rotate on and off the floor in shifts to play offense by trying to put the ball in their opponents’ goal and play defense by preventing their opponents from scoring on their goal.
The drills and practice plans provided below require players to be properly equipped with the right equipment. Within the USA Lacrosse Box Rules, Rule 28 Protective Equipment and Rule 29 Goaltender Equipment outline the mandatory equipment that players must wear.
