Women’s lacrosse is growing, and the Philadelphia Wings are committed to being at the forefront to help break down barriers and develop the next generation of box lacrosse athletes. With World Lacrosse hosting women’s box lacrosse for the first time in 2024, there is growing demand for the sport. Because of this, we are organizing our first ever middle school girls box lacrosse program! Middle school is the ideal age group for those looking to start playing box lacrosse, as well as a great opportunity for developing field players to hone in on their skills. The Philadelphia Wings are in a unique position to be able to offer box lacrosse instruction at our own facility while being coached by some of the best box lacrosse players in the world.

Why Box Lacrosse?  

  • Sharpen your stick skills and increase your Lacrosse IQ  
    • In box lacrosse you are playing in a smaller space with smaller goals and larger goalies than in field lacrosse. Additionally, a 30 second shot clock forces players to make quicker decisions on the ball. These fundamental differences in the game allow players to develop quicker and more accurate stick skills and many field lacrosse players attribute their success outdoors to the skills they learned while playing box.  
  • Keep playing year-round.  
    • Playing field lacrosse in the spring combined with box lacrosse in the winter means you are sure to stay at the top of your game all year long. Not to mention the weather won’t affect your game play while in the box!  
  • The sport is constantly growing.  
    • With the first women’s box lacrosse national team launching in 2024, there are more opportunities than ever to get, and stay, involved in the sport.
