1. Is there contact in girls box lacrosse?
There is some contact in girls box house league. We call it push-and-play - girls can stick check and guide the player with their sticks. There is no cross-checking allowed. But like house league hockey, sometimes stuff happens which is why we have refs and penalty boxes. It’s very unusual for a house league game to have more than minor infractions though.
2. Where is box lacrosse played?
Box lacrosse is played indoors in arenas once the ice has been taken out.
3. What equipment is needed?
Complete box equipment: helmet, mouth guard, chest protector, arm guards*, gloves, kidney pads*, box stick* and runners. Most (including the chest protector and gloves) can be re purposed hockey equipment at the house league level. The * items are likely new buys.
4. Are there age divisions?
We have 6 teams in girls box lacrosse. Each team is set up in three lines: Pink (new and youngest players), White (peewee/bantam age – some will have a season or two of playing experience), Gold (older girls – bantam, midget age – some may be new but most will have played at least one or more season). Like hockey the new girls pick it up pretty quick.
5. What is the season?
The end of April to the end of June.
