Vermont Box Lacrosse League

Summer 2024 VBLL Season

Woodchuck Lacrosse is proud to present the fourth VBLL season in Summer 2024! League details listed below!

 


League Mission

The mission of the VBLL is to provide lacrosse players exposure to the game of box lacrosse in the State of Vermont at an affordable cost. Our league structure emphasizes player development and growth in a highly competitive, instructional, meaningful and positive environment!


About The League

We are proud to offer true box lacrosse to youth and high school players in the State of Vermont!! Following the Canadian model, playing box lacrosse in the summer, we provide a fun, educational, safe and quality experience for our athletes. 

Both Youth & High School VBLL sessions will consist of team practices, regular season games and a Championship Tournament. Practice sessions will consist of elite instruction and introduce, emphasize, and reinforce box lacrosse skills and concepts. The VBLL prioritizes player development and individual growth in a safe and positive environment!

Box lacrosse is lacrosse played 6v6 (5 runners and a goalie) in a hockey rink when the ice is melted or covered. Traditionally, box lacrosse is played on a concrete or tile surface. Some box lacrosse arenas have a turf playing surface (more common at the professional level).

We are fortunate to have three locations: Barre, Middlebury, and Essex. Each of our rinks have their own unique environments and contrasting playing surfaces. All VBLL rinks are fully equipped with a scoreboard, two shot clocks, and box lacrosse goals.
