The Box Season
The typical spring schedule for box lacrosse is between 15 and 20 league games depending on the division. It starts early-April and ends at the end of June. Those teams qualifying for Provincials will play into July. A week is made up of one practice and up to two games, with some travel due to away games in other cities across the Lower Mainland. Practice, game days and times depend on the team to which your child is assigned. Please note that U7 and U9 teams play “in-house” and may only travel as far as Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam for their away games.
