If sport has a high point of the year, it must be the first week of spring. When I was growing up, I used to love this time of year. It was when I put my hockey equipment away and I was absolutely ecstatic to see the end of the hockey season. One of the worst things to happen to the game, in my opinion, has been year-round hockey and, in particular, summer hockey. All it does for kids, as far as I can tell, is keep them out of sports they should be doing in warmer weather. I could hardly wait to get my lacrosse stick out and start throwing the ball around. It didn’t matter how cold or rainy it would be, we’d be out firing the ball against walls and working on our moves as we played the lacrosse equivalent to road hockey. All the good hockey players seemed to play lacrosse in those days and everyone of them learned something from the game to carry over to the other – things athletes can only learn by mixing up games they play when they are young.

“He made the HSE 5th/6th spring travel team. There will potentially be five other B teams in the 5th/6th league from HSE this season, so he beat out a lot of kids who have been playing longer. I attribute the development work through Hoosier Lacrosse to his early success…thank you! A great accomplishment for only going into his second season!”
This was our second year with Hoosier Lacrosse. The staff is knowledgable and does a great job with the kids. My son has learned so much at the camps that we are enrolling in box lacrosse and winter training. I would recommend Hoosier Lacrosse to everyone!
As a player, Hoosier lacrosse helped me get better and better day in and day out. If you play lacrosse, both box and field are essential to becoming the best player you can be. Play fast, have fun, and develop your overall lacrosse ability at the same time -- what more can you ask for? But Hoosier is more than that. Hoosier has taught me principles and morals used on the field that will carry on into my personal and professional life. With Hoosier lacrosse, you're getting the tools you need to become a better player and person from coaches that truly care.
Had such a great time developing and improving skills over this past spring & summer's box league. The league takes place one night per week, and gives players of all ages a chance to improve their skills playing the fastest game on two feet, in an even faster environment being on a hockey floor! Reaction times, sprinting ability, fast breaks, precision shooting, and team communication were all attributes that were improved upon participating in box. Field play is dramatically improved from polishing these skills learned in box play. These are all skills that any player needs for their game to be taken to the next level. Bottom line is, if you want to get better, PLAY BOX. Hoosier Lacrosse Academy gives you the tools to improve the most efficient way possible, so what are you waiting for!?
