Rockets Box Lacrosse

Grow Your Game

We are proud to launch a new, innovative and forward-thinking box lacrosse program. Rockets Box Lacrosse will feature the best coaching and a system geared to the longterm development of players.

Box lacrosse can help players develop better stick skills, footwork, hand-eye coordination, physicality, conditioning and mental toughness, all of which are important skills for field lacrosse. By playing both versions of the sport, players can develop a more well-rounded skillset and become better all-around lacrosse players.

Led by New Jersey Hall of Fame coach Chuck Ruebling, Rockets Box Lacrosse will help players take their games to new heights. All teams will have two coaches and uniforms, tournaments and the season are all included in one fee. Sign up today.
