BEAT THE HEAT BOX LACROSSE CAMP
USBOXLA newcomers from South Lake Texas, the South Lake Carroll Dragons, played well throughout the tournament. Directed by Bart Sullivan, the american high school football powerhouse will become a hotbed for the nation’s elite lacrosse players.
“The best thing about the tournament was playing the Dragons Select teams from Texas, I commend Bart for jumping in with the big boys, his players played with class and character and couldn’t be more proud of the huge jump they took, it’s not an easy step and there are very few USA programs willing to take the leap the Dragons did” says Shaydon Santos US Box Lacrosse Association president.
The Dragons entered U10, U12, U14, and U16 teams into this event.
“This was the first time that whole teams of Texas kids left the state to compete in real box lacrosse so we expected it to be rough in terms of wins. The experience and the improvement made by our players over the course of the weekend was incredible. We were definitely at a roadblock where we were not going to make serious improvements as a box program until we got our kids out of Texas to compete against teams that already knew what they were doing” says Bart Sullivan, Dragons Select director.
“USBOXLA is a total game changer for our program and eventually for the whole state of Texas. Kids here are already playing a ton of lacrosse year round but they are basically doing the same thing over and over again so improvement is slower than it should be. Box provides an entirely different way for our kids to enjoy lacrosse and no doubt accelerates their skill development and IQ. I even had a couple players tell me after the tournament that they like box lacrosse much better than field lacrosse now” continues Sullivan.
Check out the video below! Do you still think that full-field lacrosse is a good thing for the development of young players?
The lacrosse equivalent of this video would be adults trying to play on a field that is roughly 150 yards long x 80 yards wide with 9' x 9' goals and all players using long poles!
FULL-FIELD LACROSSE SHOULD ONLY BE FOR FULL-SIZED PEOPLE!
Sullivan Lacrosse, who strives to provide the highest quality training and select team (Select Dragons) experiences to lacrosse players in Southlake, Texas and the surrounding North Dallas/Fort Worth community, is the latest organization to join the US Box Lacrosse Association (USBOXLA).
The program was founded by Bart Sullivan, currently the Head Boys Varsity Lacrosse Coach and Program Director for Southlake Carroll High School and former Bellarmine University Head Coach (2010-2011). Sullivan was also a standout defender at the University of Denver and a big proponent of incorporating box lacrosse at the grass roots level in the US.
“I am extremely excited to bring USBOXLA to Southlake, Texas,” said Sullivan. “Once our kids and parents see what real box lacrosse is like, I am confident they are going to fall in love with the game just like they have field lacrosse”... Click here to read the full article
