Why Box Lacrosse and just a game?

For over 7 years Arrow and Lightning Lacrosse have been offering indoor lacrosse programming.  A few of other programs promote that they have innovated the game in Western PA, but it just isn't so.  Actually the Arrows owners played box back in the late 1980's at Tri County in pick up fashion. From then to now one thing was apparent, the better players played box.  Why?  Multiple reasons.  First you tend to get the lacrosse obsessed players.  The ones that just want to play.  They don't care where or when.  They just love to have a stick in their hands!  Indoor/outdoor, backyard/stadium, real stick/mini stick.  They just love the game.  Second reason is to develop skill.  Playing box develops skill.  Players are forced to make quick decisions.  They need to learn to be creative with their stick skills and learn to pass and play fast.  These skills transition and make for better field players.  The list can continue to go on, but we think you get the point.  

We also get asked why do we just play a game and not have a 20 minute instruction period followed by a 40 minute game.  Simply we don't think 20 minutes is enough time to properly instruct players.  Really, think about it.  It takes five minutes for kids to get on the field and coaches to be ready, that cuts down on instruction. Then you need to transition to playing the game which takes time.  You have to get kids off the field and organized on the bench.  We say for leagues just play the game. We offer academies and clinics during the year that focus on skill development. It helps us better breakdown how to be a better player.   

 

With all the options out there, what makes Arrows lacrosse leagues any better than the others? 

We think the answer is simple, we care. That is on many fronts.

First and foremost is safety. We have always used certified referees and medics. It costs us a bit more but is well worth the piece of mind. We are a no body checking or take out check league. Winter is a time to hone your skills, try new skills and get better as a player. It is not time to worry about getting blown out by an opposing player.  

As owners of this company and parents we get "it" -- To us, leagues and teams are not just about getting a check or making an out-of-state corporate office happy. We truly love this game and want to help everyone get better at it. We also have more experience playing and coaching than other groups. For sure we are a little bit older, but with that comes experience. We have seen the evolution of lacrosse in Western PA and have helped shape its change. We do not have a big marketing budget to send out fancy looking emails, we believe that what we put on the field speaks for its self.

As always we thank you for your support now and in the future.
