The Jr. Swarm program is intended to help grow the game of box lacrosse in Georgia. Members of the Jr. Swarm program participate in a form of box lacrosse that is played by amateurs across Canada and professionally in the NLL. Jr. Swarm players are exposed to a more traditional version of the sport that allows for more physical play while adding more padding for player safety. Jr. Swarm teams will compete in national and international box lacrosse tournaments.

Box Lacrosse Testimonials
6x NCAA Champion & Denver University Coach Bill Tierney on Box Lacrosse:
“If I had my choice, I would have every player under the age of 12 play box lacrosse exclusively or at least a majority of the time. The number of touches of the ball and the ability to develop better stick skills in a game of box lacrosse far surpasses what happens on a field. Learning how to pass and catch in traffic, understanding how to shoot, and developing a sense of physicality are all positive traits developed by the box game.”
4x NCAA Champion & University of Virginia coach Dom Starsia on Box Lacrosse:
“When you watch Canadian kids score, when you see their skill level around the cage, you wonder to yourself, ‘Jeez, are we teaching kids [in the U.S.] the wrong things?”
NLL/MLL All-Star Casey Powell on Box Lacrosse:
“I knew that if I wanted to be one of the best players in the world, I would have to dedicate myself to both the indoor and the outdoor game. Playing indoor lacrosse has been a great thing for my career.”
