Box Lacrosse Summer Series
Following the successful trial box/6’s game in Milton Keynes on Sunday 26th May (Birmingham beat a Northampton/Milton keynes team 12-4), Milton Keynes Lacrosse Club will be hosting a series of box lacrosse games, every 4 weeks, over the summer.
Dates: Sunday’s 23rd June, 21st July, 18th August and 15th September
Venue: PowerLeague, Fyfield Barrow, Walnut Tree, Milton Keynes MK7 7WH
Cost: £3 per player, per night
On-field playing rules will be published in due course now we know how the venue works for size, safety etc. These will be a mix of field and box rules. For example, face-off after each goal, no D poles, goalie’s cannot cross halfway line, no offside, no shot clock, no ‘over and back’ rule, no cross checking and no moving picks. For personal safety, in addition to helmet and gloves, arm and shoulder pads are highly recommended.
Two teams will be sorted each night based on who’s there. To maximise playing time, please be ready to play as soon as the goals are put up at 7:30pm. At the trial game, we played 3 periods of 10 minutes. It should be possible to play 4 x 10 minutes if we start promptly.
Any profit after pitch hire and referee match fee costs will go to club funds so we can develop box, field, men and womens lacrosse in Milton Keynes.
