If you’re not playing box, you’re falling behind.

Keep up with the Canadians and surpass your fellow Americans with 412 Elite’s Box Academy which moves to the Robert Morris University Island Sports Complex.

Over the course of eight sessions, athletes will transform their stick skills. The best athletes in the 412 program played both box and field. Our Box Academy is open to the public so all athletes can be exposed what we already know and teach. Box is transformative.

Offensive players will score more goals this spring. Defensive players will have better footwork to stop opponents and better stick skills to make plays in transition.

New this year, in addition to a Leveled Up facility, athletes can select between a Training Package and Evaluation Package.

Serious lacrosse players should also play for 412 Elite’s Box Travel Program.

Players will be taught all aspects of Canadian style indoor lacrosse skills including the following:

  • Shooting Accuracy

  • Faking Proficiency

  • Stickhandling In Tight Spaces

  • Pick and Roll Offense/Defense

  • Two-Man Game

The Evaluation Package

We’ve prided ourselves on being unrelenting when it comes to introducing and providing innovative training for the Pittsburgh area.

This means that our athletes are always the early adopters for new strategies giving them a leg up on the competition.

Our next innovation wave is offering even more video than ever before. High school and youth athletes who select the Evaluation Package will receive a written evaluation corresponding video evaluation at the conclusion of the Academy. It’s one thing to learn new skills. It’s another to learn what isn’t working, why you should fix it, and how you will fix it so you have the best 2019 season.

Additionally, this September we introduced our Players Portal and Coaches Portal which is an online private coach for both players and coaches. High school athletes who sign up for the Box Academy Evaluation Package will receive access for 14 days. The full year membership is valued at $300.
