The Players

Who does what on a box lacrosse team

Positions

There are four positions in box lacrosse: forwards, defensemen, transition players, and goaltenders.

Forwards

Forwards predominantly play offense, and their job is to find a way to get that ball past five defenders who are doing everything they can to get the ball back and a goaltender wearing enough pads to build a pillow fort out of.

Defensemen

On the other end of the floor are the defensemen, the stalwart line of defense making opposing forwards’ jobs even more difficult. Their job is to keep opponents as far away from the crease as possible, force bad shots, cause turnovers, and regain possession of the ball for their team.

Transition Players

A mix of forwards and defensemen, transition players can play on either side of the floor. They excel at getting the ball from one end of the floor to the other quickly and scoring on fast breaks, a change of possession from defense to offense before an opponent can swap their full defense out onto the floor.

Goaltenders

Goaltenders, goalies, netminders, wall – no matter what name you call them, a goaltender is the last line of defense. They soak up opponents’ shots on goal and try and regain possession of the ball, either by controlling the ball’s rebound and directing it towards a teammate or by collecting the ball into their stick and passing it.

Active Roster

Each team has an Active Roster consisting of 21 players. Before each game, the two teams have to scratch two players from their respective rosters, meaning those four players will not play in the game that day.

Of the 19 players on a team who will dress, there have to be 17 runners and 2 goaltenders, and only six can be on the floor at any time.

Typically, you will see one goalie and five players playing offense or defense for a team at any given time.
