BOX lacrosse leagues will begin “under new management” at The Iceoplex at SouthPointe during the week of September 21st. We heard your suggestions about improving the box leagues and are implementing exciting new aspects including: 30-second shot clocks, “real refs” (ALOA/PIAA-certified) and an EMT on-site for all games. We are also planning to add some new features to keep the teams competitive and the games fast-paced and exciting.
