Benefits of Small Field Indoor Lacrosse
Everyone knows when space is reduced it speeds up the game and produces an environment where quicker decisions have to be made; ball handling skills are therefore amplified. Being in such an environment redefines being "open." Box players get used to catching passes routinely that field players would be yelled at for throwing. The tight confines are less impacted by the size of the field and more impacted by the size of the goal. Small goals make all the action happen in tighter spaces.
Small Field lacrosse is a simple game that develops skills to their highest level. Small Field players work on small-sided situations every game.
>The 2 Man Game
One of the staples of small field lacrosse is the utilization of 2 man games on and off the ball. It is the repetition of these 2 man plays that teach reading defense at the highest level.
The ball does not go out of bounds, is played off the boards and netting to eliminate stoppage of play and restarts thereby increasing actual playing time. All players use short sticks.
Each team will play a minimum of 7 games over the 7 week period, 1-2 games per week.
The game will consist of 5 players on the field at one time.
No off sides
Body armor will be provided for goalies by the league. Regulation NLL 4' x 4'6" goals.
