The Jr. Tyke program is an introduction to lacrosse. This is a house league but exhibition games can be arranged against other house mini Tyke teams. The game is played 3 on 3 half court games to reduce cost and help develop skills. There is one goalie per game, but all the players take turns trying out the position. The tykes play with a smaller “rage cage” net.

For players wanting to play goalie, your club may supply you with your protective gear. Speak to your coach at a pre-season camp about this.
Box lacrosse is played on indoor hockey rinks with some different markings. These include a larger crease area and transition zones to name a couple. This keeps the game moving and why it is called the fastest game on two feet.
