The Blackhawks will offer Box Lacrosse for U11 through Adult beginning in January 2014 at the Ultimate Sports Arena, 1368 South Park Drive, Kernersville. There will be five sessions beginning Wednesday, January 8, 2014 and continuing through Wednesday, February 5, 2014. This fast-paced 5 v 5 action played with box lacrosse goals and an indoor ball has proven to be a great way to improve stick skills, decision-making, positioning, and foot quickness during the time just before the spring lacrosse season begins.
The tentative schedule is as follows (could be adjusted based upon registration numbers):
- U11 and younger: 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
- U13/U15: 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
- High School: 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
- Adult: 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
The cost for U11 through High School is $80 per player. The cost for Adults is $70 per player. U11 through High School will be officiated by coaches. Adults will officiate their own games.
ALPINE TAKES HS BOX TITLE
Team Alpine’s high-octane offense carried it to the Blackhawks/Cannons Box Lacrosse title in the high school division on Saturday, February 8, 2014 at Ultimate Sports Arena in Kernersville. Team Alpine, the #1 seed entering the playoffs, got by Team Luge, 11-7, in the semi-finals and then defeated Team Nordic, 16-11, in the title clash. The third-place game, however, produced the most drama, as Team Luge upset team Team Sochi in sudden death overtime.
Team Alpine was led on offense by Aaron Parrish and Paul Gulledge and on defense by stellar goalkeeper Hunter Bacorn and received significant contributions in its title run from John Lindstrom, Sam Knibb, Adam Augustine, Ben Oakman, Sam Ingles, Kenny Presta, and Johan Charpentier. Runner-up Team Nordic showed well against the champs, keeping the score close
throughout the final. Nordic got gritty play from Spencer Dollman, Matt Finnegan, Charlie Bugg, Parker Ford, John Adams, Chase Mabe, Keyvon Davis, Zach Kellum, and Parker Dotson.
The teams were created out of players from 14 different Triad-area high schools, while competition also took place in U11,U13, U15, and adult divisions.
It all added up to an exciting final day as Kernersville Box concluded its fourth straight year. Congratulations to all of our players at all ages!
