WHAT IS BOX LACROSSE?
Box lacrosse combines the physical play of hockey with the high scoring, fast pace and play-making style of basketball. Box lacrosse is played inside the confines of an ice hockey rink, with glass and rink boards intact. The playing surfaces consists of either green turf carpet that is laid down over the hockey ice or another suitable surface acceptable for the fast-paced, up-and-down style of play.Each team has five runners (forwards and defenseman) and a goaltender on the floor during the game. Each team dresses sixteen players (fifteen runners and one goaltender) per game, and the players rotate on and off the floor in shifts, similar to ice hockey. The game consists of four quarters, each twelve minutes in length. A game that is tied at the end of regulation is decided in a sudden-death overtime. There are no tie games in indoor lacrosse.
