The rise of the Canadian Box player in the field lacrosse game can be attributed to the recruitment and training of Canadian players by the NCAA's top lacrosse programs. Roy Simmons Jr., Dave Urick, Bill Tierney, Don Starsia to name a few, have all been major influences in the development of the Canadian Field Lacrosse program.
These elite NCAA coaches have inspired a generation of Canadian Box players such as Matt Brown (University of Denver), Brodie Merrill (Georgetown University/The Hill Academy) and Taylor Wray (Lehigh University/Saint Joseph's University) teaching them that field lacrosse isn't Box Lacrosse played outside. Instead, these top NCAA coaches have developed the unique skills and strategies in these Canadian Box players that are needed to excel in the field game.
The US Box Lacrosse Academy is the first step in learning the unique skills and strategies of the Box Lacrosse game. We are the the pioneers of youth Box Lacrosse in the USA, we are the first to play in Canada, the first to host Canadian teams in the USA and the first to develop American Box lacrosse talent that can compete against Canada's best. We've beat Canadian Provincial ALL-STAR teams and continue to impress and change the mindset of both Canadian and American players. We do something different than ever other 'Box' program in the USA...we walk the walk. We teach the game exactly as the game has been taught to us and we know that Authentic Box Lacrosse is nothing like field lacrosse played indoors.
Our Director, Matt Brown is Coach of Canada's U19 lacrosse team and Assistant Coach of Team Canada Men's Lacrosse program. Brown is also the Associate Head coach of the University of Denver and is the architect of one of the most lethal and talked about offenses in Division 1 NCAA. When people talk about how Box Lacrosse is changing the College game, Brown and his Pioneers could be considered the movement's flag bearer.
