Play Lacrosse Like a Professional
Play Canadian Box Lacrosse
Play South Jersey Boys Box Lacrosse League
South Jersey Boys Box Lacrosse League is BOX lacrosse. I started this league because I felt my players were not developing in the modified games offered in the off season. I wanted to do more for my players, and the players of South Jersey than just" keeping a stick in their hands". I feel the "watered" down versions of field and box are not helping the lacrosse community as a whole. What skills are our sons obtaining from modified games? If you can honestly say that your son has improved by playing modified games, then you don't need Box. However if you do the same thing every winter and are left disappointed, then you should try something new! This website (this league) is about making players better! Please read the testimonials, the articles, and the board of advisors. Watch one of our games provided by Access Lacrosse. Play box lacrosse in the off season, thank us in the spring.
Coach Kurt Loescher
We are very pleased to say it was an impressive showing. In game 1 our boys played Tri State and had an amazing first showing for a team that only had 3 practices. The game came down to the final minutes when Tri State pulled ahead by a goal, final score was 8-9. The second game was versus team BLT (Box Lacrosse Training, they run out of the Baltimore area). Final score 2-9. The 3rd and final game for day 1 was versus Fusion Lacrosse (host of the Tournament, a program run by Steve Holmes (Philadelphia Wings) & Kevin Crowley (New England Black Wolves, Team Canada). SJBBLL won this game 8-4, thanks to this win the boys earned seeding for the tournament. At the end of the game our team got to shake hands with a world champion player (Kevin Crowley was a coach on the opposing team).
Day 2 started off with playing Team 91 from Long Island. This established program played box lacrosse at an "unmatchable" caliber and coached by Joe Spallina (Head Coach of the New York Lizards in the MLL). Team 91 went on to win the Tournament and averaged more than 15 goals a game while letting in an average of .5 goals a game. SJBBLL fell 18 goals short of a win.
The final game of day 2 placed 3rd seed SJBBLL against 4th seed Fusion. Fusion started off on top at the end of the first period the score was 1-2. After a hard fought 2nd period each team was able to add a goal to the score (2-3). The third period offered hope with SJBBLL tying up the game in the first few minutes. With less than 3 minutes remaining, Fusion added in another goal, again a one point game. As the final seconds ticked off the clock the SJ Boys did not give up, with two shots on goal in the last 30 seconds, they came so very close, but fell short by a goal.

“American field players would really help themselves if they were exposed to a steady stream of box experience.” – University of Virginia Head Coach, Dom Starsia
Even though field lacrosse purists continue to try, there’s no denying the impact of box lacrosse on the landscape of the sport as a whole. Box lacrosse players are consistently being recruited to play at the highest levels of collegiate field lacrosse, and with good reason. Box players bring a different skill set to the field game with superior stick skills, scoring ability and toughness.
