What Makes a Good Box Lacrosse Stick?
Field lacrosse and box lacrosse require different tools, and one of these tools is your stick. In this quick read, I aim to identify several key traits needed in putting together a good box lacrosse stick based on my experience and popular trends around the box world.
What makes a good box Lacrosse stick?
In the field game, many people will opt for different weights and strengths when looking for a head tailored to their position. In the box game, the idea of using a super lightweight head is a bit riskier. From the beefy checks coming from the defender staring you down to the game-changing takeaway check, you need durability in the box game.
We all remember the legendary Gait Torque. The box game loved it. While it wasn’t the lightest or most streamline, it was durable and held up to what the game demanded. Consider a stronger head with some serious durability when looking for your next box wand.

Have you ever seen those beautiful box heads pinched to perfection? We all have. They are things of beauty. The higher the flare, the better the box head. This high flare and greater pinch will lead to a smoother release when tossing your next assist. Whether you choose to pinch your box head more or not, just remember you don’t have to worry about the same rules for heads in the field game. Find a head or pinch that works for you and your release. Get creative. Find your style!
Durability and strength in handles are beyond key when putting together a good box lacrosse stick. Ultra-lightweight shafts without much strength just won’t cut it in the box game. Strength in a handle is needed for everything from laying a cross check to taking a strong check while cutting to the cage.
My suggestion would be to look for something a bit heavier than what you would use in the field game; something that feels like you have Hulk-type strength to lay a check when you pick it up. Jokes aside, the stronger the handle, the better. I use a 180g shaft myself. While it’s surely a bit heavier, it doesn’t cave to checks and keeps me in the game. Whatever you decide on, I urge you to opt for strength over light-weight glamor.
Now, I will be the first to say a stick should be strung to the players’ preference. Everyone plays with their own style. However, keep a few ideas in mind when stringing up your next stick.
Many players, including myself, prefer a “baggier” pocket while playing box. This allows the pocket to shift all around based on the ball and release quicker. Smooth and quick are key in the box game. While speed is still great, a well-placed quick shot goes a long way in the box game.
The American Box Lacrosse Revolution » Powell Lacrosse Sticks
By Steven Wizniuk
The IBLA (Interstate Box Lacrosse Association) has grown to a league of 52 teams since starting out in 2016. The popularity of the NLL and the wider acceptance of box lacrosse in the United States has everybody looking for a chance to test their skills in the indoor game. The IBLA is a huge step toward a greater American box lacrosse revolution.
Powell Lacrosse is proud to be an equipment provider and sponsor of the IBLA for the 2021 season. You can see our uniforms, apparel, and gear being worn by teams like the Minneapolis Wheat Kings, Salt City Eels, Baton Rouge Redfish, Morristown Rally, and Westminster Wild this summer.
As they get ready to kick off their season with a big slate of games this weekend, let’s dive into what the IBLA means for the growth of box lacrosse in the US.
It’s taken a long time for Americans to fully embrace box lacrosse.
For many old school players and coaches it was just “that game played up north” where they only play with one hand and cross check like crazy. Pro indoor lacrosse drew big crowds because of the hitting and flashy goal scoring, but Canadian players always dominated the rosters. It wasn’t until the first few Canadians and Native American players started to play college lacrosse that people saw the skills players acquired playing indoors. Guys like Mike French, Dave Huntley, the Gaits, and Tom Marechek did things no one thought was possible with a lacrosse stick. Years later John Grant Jr., Zack Greer, Curtis Dickson, Brodie Merrill, Geoff Snider, Mark Matthews, the Thompsons, and others displayed the stick skills and play making ability they learned playing box lacrosse on ESPN and across social media.
American coaches are now scrambling to have their players play box to try and acquire some of those same skills. Older players are trying backhands, around the worlds, and are only playing with one hand in the pros and in men’s leagues after watching how box players play. For many years opportunities to play box were hard to come by in most of the US.
Up until recently, if an American wanted to get real box experience they would have to either live near the Canadian border or a Native reservation where they could try and make a team. Or live in Canada for a summer hopefully knowing someone already on a team. Every summer you could probably count the number of Americans playing in these Junior and Senior leagues on two hands.
Things will be different this summer as 52 Senior men’s teams are set to play box lacrosse in 22 different states across the US in the IBLA. Teams are grouped into regions and play games against the 2-4 other teams to decide who will move on to the IBLA National Tournament in September. Along with youth and college leagues starting up through USBOXLA across the country, there has never been this much box lacrosse being played in the United States.
There have always been “indoor” leagues in the US, but most of the time these end up being field lacrosse played in a hockey rink using field nets and players trying to dodge down the alley. Only a few leagues like the Baltimore Indoor Lacrosse League and others played with goalies in actual box pads, a shot clock, and the real physicality of the indoor game. The IBLA will now bring that all over the country.
In comparison to Canada and the Upstate New York Can-Am leagues where there are around 35 Senior B and 13 Senior A teams, it might seem like the US now has the upper hand. However, almost every one of those Canadian Senior teams have Junior teams and Minor associations that feed into them developing the next group of elite box players. The players on the Senior teams have played box their entire lives with the top Sr. B and Sr. A teams being made up of almost all NLL players.
The level of play is mixed across the 52 IBLA teams, but with former pros and experienced box players scattered around the league the games will be competitive. Players that have never played box before will have to learn the ropes quickly to have chance to help their teams win. With the US-Canadian border still closed and the Senior level leagues in Ontario and British Columbia cancelled, many talented players will look to join an IBLA team so they can still play box lacrosse this summer. The top teams that will play at the IBLA Nationals will be very good and could likely compete with Canadian Senior teams.
Looking at the bigger picture, this is potentially a key moment in the box lacrosse arms race between Canada and the US leading up to the next World Indoor Championships in 2023 as well as for the sport as a whole.
The IBLA is a true box lacrosse league. With GMs, tryouts, sponsors, playing in big arenas, and local media coverage each team is playing for the end goal of being the IBLA National Champion. Many of the teams are putting in the legwork to promote their games in their cities to try and grow a fanbase and the overall awareness of lacrosse. The IBLA also offers a chance for these teams to build a community around them of not only fans, but youth and Junior programs for players to start playing box at a young age. The IBLA players can pass on what they’re learning to the next generation.
After college, it’s hard to find the same feeling of competition and camaraderie in men’s leagues or tournaments. In the IBLA, having a team identity and a group of guys to bond with will make the lacrosse communities in each city so much stronger. Not to mention that box is just a ton of fun to play thanks to the fast pace, physicality, and more reps you get compared to field lacrosse.
Perhaps the biggest upside for the league is the IBLA’s partnership with the NLL for prospect development. Several Americans get drafted to the NLL every year out of college for their excellent performance playing field lacrosse with the hopes that their skills and athleticism will translate to the NLL. It’s usually a 50/50 toss up that it will work out. Now they can prepare by playing in the IBLA to get real experience playing NLL rules and have game film of themselves to help NLL coaches make a much more informed decision.
There will be no Senior lacrosse in Ontario or British Columbia this summer and Junior teams will be limited to only a few events instead of a full season. This will make it much harder for NLL coaches to find players for the upcoming season. With the IBLA playing a full season, maybe NLL coaches will take a much closer look at the talent there as they get ready for the NLL draft and try to fill out their rosters.
Even next year when Canada’s leagues return to play, the IBLA will become a great option for Canadians or Native NLL prospects or players looking for a team to play for especially with the draw of living in cities like San Diego, Tampa, Austin, and New York City. No longer will players have to travel all the way to Victoria, BC, Six Nations, or Peterborough, ON to experience real box lacrosse.
The NLL will soon reach 15 teams and looking toward 2021-2022 when their season gets back up and running, they will surely look to the IBLA as a resource for players and support of their league. In the next 2-4 years, I think we will see the amount of Americans playing pro indoor lacrosse doubling thanks to the opportunities leagues like the IBLA are providing.
We can’t wait to see the action unfold this summer and see who will win their regions to compete in the IBLA Nationals in Lakeland, FL.
American box lacrosse is ready to take the next step. American box lacrosse is ready for a revolution.

ESPN Denver 1600CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – The No. 8 University of Denver hockey team fell 5-1 at the No. 10 Boston College Eagles on Saturday night at Kelley Rink at Conte Forum.
Senior Ryan Barrow scored for the Pioneers (4-2-0) early in the third period to make it a 2-1 game, but the Eagles (3-2-1) added three goals in the final six minutes of the contest to secure the win. Brett Stapley and McKade Webster garnered assists for DU, while goaltender Matt Davis made 23 saves on 27 shots.
Drew Helleson had three points (one goal, two assists) for BC, as teammates Jack McBain (one goal, one assist), Colby Ambrosio (two assists) and Mark McLaughlin (two assists) also had multi-point nights. Eagles netminder Eric Dop stopped 26 shots.
Following a scoreless first frame, Boston College held a 2-0 lead heading into the third after Helleson and Trevor Kuntar found twine on shots with traffic in front of Davis.
The Pios cut into the Eagles’ advantage at 1:49 of the third period with defenseman Shai Buium leading a rush up the ice. The ensuing scramble in the crease area led to Stapley’s shot being redirected in by Barrow to get Denver within one goal. The marker was Barrow’s first of the season and fourth point.
Denver continued to generate chances and outshot BC 10-9 in the final frame, but McBain tallied on his own rebound with 5:57 left to push the Eagles’ lead back to two. Boston College added a 180-foot empty-net goal that angled off the side boards at 2:18 and then scored seconds later on a fortunate carom off Davis, who had made several key stops on breakaways and goalmouth scrums earlier in the period.
DU was outshot for the first time this season, 28-27, which was also a season long. The Pios went 0-for-2 on the power play, while the Eagles were 1-for-3.
Denver now heads into its first bye week of the season before traveling to play at the University of North Dakota on Nov. 5-6.

4:03 BC (0-1) – Drew Helleson’s shot from the right point made its way through traffic and hit twine.
16:43 BC (0-2) – Trevor Kuntar tallied with a slap shot from the left circle, seconds after Matt Davis made a series of saves on a breakaway and scramble in the crease.
1:49 DU (1-2) – Ryan Barrow redirected Brett Stapley’s shot during a scramble in the low slot.
14:03 BC (1-3) – PPG, Jack McBain scored on a rebound in front.
17:42 BC (1-4) – ENG, Marshall Warren angled a shot off the boards, and the puck took a fortunate path into the open net.

Franklin Regional appeared in the past three WPIAL Class 3A boys soccer championships and has its sights set on making it four straight.
The third-seeded Panthers got off on the right foot for that quest, shutting out No. 14 Trinity, 8-0, at home in the first round Saturday.
“I thought we came out strong today,” senior Anthony DiFalco said. “We took our chances well today and played pretty sound defensively.”
DiFalco figured prominently in the Panthers’ attack.
Junior captain Colton Hudson put Franklin Regional up 1-0 when he found a loose ball after a goal kick and put a right-footed strike into the net in the 6th minute.
Then DiFalco took over.
He headed in a great feed from Joey Bayne in the 24th minute for a 2-0 lead. Bayne’s service came from the right wing and found DiFalco alone in front for the goal.
“It was a nice 1-2 play on the sideline,” DiFalco said. “Joey got the ball and served it in over the defenders head, and I got a header down into the ground for the goal.”
Eight minutes later, Hudson found DiFalco on the left wing, and after a great run, the senior’s left-footed shot snuck inside the far post for a 3-0 lead.
DiFalco made a great individual play on that goal. ‘
“Colton (Hudson) picked up the ball and laid it off to me,” he said. “I went down on a solo run, took on a player and slid it underneath the goalie.”
DiFalco completed the natural hat trick in the 40th minute when he buried a penalty kick inside the near post after a handball in the box for a 4-0 halftime lead for the Panthers.
“I just try to not let the goalie get in my head,” DiFalco said of the PK. “I kept my head down and shot it where I thought it would go in.”
DiFalco also netted a hat trick in Franklin Regional’s first-round win over Knoch last season.
Franklin Regional added four more goals in the second half.
Hudson scored his second goal of the match off a feed from Sam Dawson for a 5-0 lead. Dawson added a goal in the 54th minute.
Dylan Tomb found the net off a Hudson assist in the 58th minute before Gary Zhang rounded out the scoring in the 72nd minute.
Aryan Selokar and Noah Walker shared the shutout for Franklin Regional (14-3), which has won five of their last six matches. Trinity ends its season at 10-6-2.
DiFalco thinks team chemistry will be a key for Franklin Regional, which won back-to-back championships in 2018 and ‘19.
“We just need to stick together. We’re pretty close with one another,” he said.
The Panthers will face No. 6 Kiski Area at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the quarterfinals at Franklin Regional.

#2 Greyhounds Dig Past Miners in 4-0 Victory
10/24/2021 | 2:30 PMINDIANAPOLIS- On a chilly night at Key Stadium, the No. 2-ranked University of Indianapolis men’s soccer team corralled an easy 4-0 win over Missouri S&T. The Hounds now improve to 11-0-1 overall with a 9-0-1 mark in the Great Lakes Valley Conference.
HOW IT HAPPENED
It took UIndy until just the 13th minute of play to strike first on the scoreboard. Kendall Allen notched his first goal of the season on a header, assisted by Bryan Moreira. Just moments later in the 20th minute, an S&T foul in the penalty box allowed Michael Tselios to execute a penalty kick and put the team up 2-0 at the half.
The Greyhounds kept their foot on the pedal, netting another right out of the half. In the 49th minute, leading goalscorer Alejandro Steinwascher collected his ninth of the season off an assist from Cole Rainwater. Finally, it was Allen again scoring for the Hounds, this time in the 59th minute off a ball that met the heads of Felix Schuetz and Makel Rasheed.
INSIDE THE BOX SCORE
-It was another lopsided game on offense in favor of UIndy with the Greyhounds managing 19 total shots to just eight from the Miners.
-Steinwascher and Eli Dulle each led the team with three total shots while Allen and Rainwater trailed right behind with two apiece.
-The clean sheet tonight from goalkeeper Dimitrios Karousos is his sixth this season.
Final thoughts on the match from head coach John Higgins:
“I thought it was our best and most complete performance so far this season. We pressed really well and with a lot of energy. I also think we were great passing the ball and it’s just really exciting to see us put a game like this together at this stage in the season.”
Sunday afternoon will be senior day at Key Stadium, as the Greyhounds will welcome Drury for a match beginning at 2:30 p.m.
Buffs Celebrate on Senior Day
BOULDER— Sophomore Shyra James scored two goals, including the walk-off overtime winner to cap off a 3-2 victory over Oregon State at Prentup Field on Sunday’s Senior Day.
Colorado (7-6-3, 2-3-3 Pac-12) needed to go to overtime for the fourth consecutive match to earn its first win in of October. The Buffs opened the scoring with a Shanade Hopcroft blast in the first half, before needing two goals from James to prevail two minutes into the extra frame and send CU’s four departing seniors home with a smile.
“They [the seniors] mean a lot to me,” James said after the game. “A lot of them are really big leaders to a lot of people, especially me. I look up a lot to all of them. Giving them a win is like a big gift that I could give them, especially when it’s their last home game with us.”
The Buffaloes were the better team outside of a four-minute span in the second half. CU outshot Oregon State 19-10 on the day and held an 11-5 advantage in the second half. Colorado attempted seven corner kicks, while not allowing a corner chance to OSU.
“It was a huge win for us,” head coach Danny Sanchez explained. “I thought we played really well today, but you expect that on Senior Day. I thought we had the run of play for the most part. I was a little disappointed to kind of let them back in the game, but I was pleased with the response.”
Oregon State (11-5-0, 3-5-0 Pac-12) got both its goals off the foot of McKenna Martinez. She led OSU with six shots in the contest.
The win for Colorado keeps the Buffs’ NCAA Tournament hopes within reach. CU has three matches remaining in the 2021 season and began the weekend with a 58 RPI.
“Our focus is all on rest and recovery right now and to get ready for Arizona State on Thursday,” Sanchez added. “We’re going to have to play well. It’s tough to go on the road and get results, as we’ve seen. But we have everything to play for on Thursday. We’re excited to get there.”
How it Happen
The Buffs out-chanced the Beavers early in the first half, outshooting OSU 4-1 in the first 21 minutes. Hopcroft nearly got the scoring started in the 15th minute when she took a free-kick positioned just off the end line. Her cross began to bend in on net, forcing OSU keeper Bridgette Skiba to adjust to keep it from hooking around the post. Six minutes later Jade Babcock-Chi and Kayleigh Webb combined for a chance just outside the goal area, but Webb’s attempt flew high over the net.
The Buffs kept the pressure on the Beavers and the work paid off in the 29th minute. Hannah Sharts sent a long ball into the OSU defensive zone and the closest OSU defender slipped and fell, allowing Hopcroft to run free to the ball. She met it perfectly in stride and blasted a right-footed shot into the lower-left corner of the net for her sixth goal of the season.
CU took the 1-0 lead into the half for the second consecutive game, but Oregon State’s Martinez struck early in the second half to even the score at 1-1.
It took CU just 19 seconds to get the lead back when Haileigh Adams set up James’ first of the day.
Almost two minutes later the Martinez struck again for the Beaver’s slipping a shot through Dani Hansen to tie up the game again in the 56th minute.
“We responded well [after the first OSU goal],” Sanchez noted. “I challenged Haileigh Adams a little bit and she gets a nice assist to Shyra. It was a little unfortunate on their [OSU] second goal, but over the 92 minutes I thought we had more of the pressure and more of it going forward.”
Oregon State almost jumped in front of the Buffs in the 63rd minute, with Martinez sniffing for her third goal of the game. Martinez broke free alone at the top of the six-yard box and one-times a shot to her left. Hansen stuck out her right leg, denying her shot on an otherwise wide-open chance.
“I think people are going to forget about that [save],” Sanchez said. “She’s [Hansen] probably a little disappointed in the second goal, but it could easily have been 3-2 them with us chasing at the end. It was a great save. That’s what you look for in experienced players. If you make a mistake you have to battle back and she bounced back big time for us.”
Colorado had the last nine shots in regulation but couldn’t get the winner before the end of 90 minutes.
Martinez started the overtime with the first scoring chance. She put her shot high over the CU net right at the start of the period. The Buffs countered back the other way with Babcock-Chi running down the right side. She got down to the final third and centered the ball for James, who headed it in for the win in the 92nd minute.
“Jade was running down and I didn’t know if I should go in front of her or go behind to the back post,” James recalled of the game-winner. “She beat the girl so as soon as I saw that, I started screaming 45! I didn’t know if she was going to play it in the air or on the ground. I was going up and down and then she played it in and I just headed it back post and it went it. “
CU closes out the regular season with three road matches. The team heads off to Arizona next week to battle the Sun Devils (Thursday) and the Wildcats (Sunday).
James is the first CU player to score at least two goals in the same game since Taylor Kornieck scored two in CU’s 2-1 OT win at Arizona (Sept. 27, 2019)…Hopcroft now leads the team with 20 points (6 G, 8 A) this season, becoming the first CU player to hit the 20-point mark since Taylor Kornieck’s 30 points in 2019…James now has four career game-winning goals…The Buffs are now 2-1-2 in overtime this season…CU is now 5-0-2 when leading at the half and 6-1-2 when scoring first…Adams’ assist was her first of the season, giving her three points this year…Babcock-Chi now has four points this season (1 G, 2 A)…CU didn’t give up a corner chance for the second match this season (Stony Brook)…The last time CU did not allow a corner chance to multiple opponents in the same season was in 2018 (Air Force and Marquette).

Media: Taliban decapitated a volleyball player from the Afghan national team for a date
The execution took place in early October, but until the last moment the information was classified, the portal “360” writes.All this time, the girl’s relatives were silent, because they feared for their lives. A few days ago, photos appeared on social networks in which you can see a bloody female head, which, according to assumptions, belongs to Hakimi.
Mahajabin played for the Kabul volleyball team until the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan. According to media reports, the athlete was one of the leading players on the team.
The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) said it was shocked by the incident.
“However, it should be noted that there is conflicting information about the true cause of her death. Therefore, the FIVB continues to seek clarification on the exact details, ”the organization told RIA Novosti. According to preliminary data, the girl was executed for a date in the car with her boyfriend.

More than 500 years ago, the tribes of the Iroquois, Hurons and Algonquins played a sport that became lacrosse. Baggataway, as lacrosse was then called, was used as military training for 1000 players at once shooting a deerskin ball at the same time. Over time, hand-to-hand combat, which has become lacrosse, will become a game based on the rules established by American lacrosse, the main goal of which is to preserve the integrity of the game and the safety of the players.
Europeans first learned about lacrosse from Native Americans in the 1600s. The French team was the first to challenge the Indian team in 1740 and lost quite nimbly.In 1851, the European team finally defeated the Native American team; the sport subsequently increased in popularity in the Montreal area. The French settlers gave the name lacrosse because the sticks used by the natives bore a resemblance to the cross that bishops wore during religious ceremonies.
Field and box, two types of lacrosse, have different rules and regulations. For example, boxing lacrosse requires more contact because the playing area is smaller. Each type of lacrosse occurs on a different surface; Field lacrosse is played on grass or lawn while boxing lacrosse is played in a hockey-style arena. Men and women can participate in both sports.
One of the most important rules in lacrosse is the handball rule. If a player other than the goalkeeper touches the ball with his glove, the other team takes possession of the ball. Other fouls such as cross-check, hard sticking, hold, back check and hold will cause the referee to send the player off the playing surface for two minutes.The referee may exclude a player from the game for more serious infractions such as digging and fighting.
Due to the physical nature of lacrosse, players must wear protective equipment. Competitors must wear helmets, gloves, shoulder pads, elbow pads and kidneys. You will also need a lacrosse stick, which comes as a stick with a pocket at the end. Goalkeepers may wear extra padding on their legs, torso and arms as they have to block the ball.
