From Press Release
Millon Lacrosse, the nation’s premier provider of youth lacrosse instruction is pleased to announce our first ever overnight Box Lacrosse camp and mini tournament at the Peddie School in Hightstown, NJ. July 10-13th, 2018.
During the past four to five years, Box Lacrosse has taken the American lacrosse landscape by storm, and for good reason. This firestorm of box lacrosse can be traced in large part due to the incredible success of Canadian born box players achieving success in the NCAA field game, as well as support of the box game from many of lacrosse’s most influential figures.
Playing box lacrosse as a youngster has proven benefits in the field game, as it helps defensive players better their stick skills and force them to play defense with their feet. Offensive players learn to play in tight spaces and to play off ball in a more meaningful way. They learn to play with shorter and quicker hand action, and shoot on larger goalies in smaller goals. Both offensive and defensive players are forced to learn to play the two-man game, deepening their base of IQ and knowledge.
“I know from personal experience that after having played box in the NLL and then going back to the field game, I was a much, much better player,” said Mark Millon, founder and director at Millon events. “After 24 years of teaching and developing players, it made complete sense to incorporate a box specific overnight camp.
“The Peddie School is the perfect location and I cannot wait to bring these incredibly beneficial skill sets to young lacrosse players around the nation. Incorporating in some live game and tournament play will make this a really memorable experience.”
Millon Box Lacrosse Camp will be July 10-13, 2018 at The Peddie School, Hightstown, NJ registration information can be found at www.millonboxlacrosse.com or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
