Boys from New York and Ontario.

What

Canadian/American Box Lacrosse Teams that have a blend of players from both countries for boys born in 2003-2008. We are an officially sanctioned USBOXLA Club.

Our August program includes overnight mini camp at SUNY Fredonia and the Upstate Box Lax Invitational hosted by the Rochester Knighthawks.

At the conclusion of these two events we will select our team for Winter 2019.

Why

Take your skills to the next level.

We will use our CANAM Prospect Camp to select our 2019 FCA CANAM Box Team. In addition to scrimmaging and evaluating, we will focus on building skills in the following areas:

Fundamentals

  • Loose ball-pick up (picking up a loose ball against boards -vs- field)
  • Ball Handling
  • Passing/Catching (passes require better positioning/accuracy and quicker reaction time)
  • Shooting (limited targets with 4×4 net with a big goalie demand precise shots)
  • Proper checking and check receiving
  • Checking on the boards (USBOXLA rules)
  • Moving with and without the ball

Team Concepts

  • Defensive positioning and system controlling your opponent
  • Offensive positioning and system breaking down the defense
  • Faceoff/Faceoff positioning and tasks
  • Optimum goal position
  • On ball V Cuts, Picks, Pick and rolls
  • Off ball V Cuts, Picks, Pick and rolls
  • Fast Break Offense
  • Power play/penalty
Having played in both the MLL & NLL, I understand the vast difference between the field and box lacrosse. We wanted to create an opportunity where players from Ontario and New York could come together and experience true Box Lacrosse. We wanted coaches that considered themselves Box Lacrosse coaches that had a track record of success as box players and coaches. We are thankful to have Ken Hastie and Billy Curtis leading our boys, teaching the fundamentals, skills and nuances of box lacrosse.Solomon Bliss, Boy's Program Director
