Within the last few years, we have seen a giant shift in the world of lacrosse. First it was The Thompson’s and the Albany State team, then Team Canada, then the Denver Outlaws and now the University of Denver, the newly crowned NCAA D-I National Champions. The common thread among these 4 phenomenal programs is the majority of their players grew up playing some form of INDOOR LACROSSE or Box Lacrosse. The West Ada Lacrosse League (WALL BALL) is at the forefront of this movement in Idaho. As such, we are proud to offer indoor lacrosse opportunities to the youth, high school and post collegiate players aged U7 to U70. These fun, innovative, unique and cost effective programs are one of a kind and a great way to keep a stick in player’s hands without draining your wallet or burning out. WALL BALL is the exclusive provider of indoor lacrosse at the Idaho Indoor Center in Meridian. Idaho Indoor is a 185′ x 85′ indoor turf field enclosed with a hockey rink system and netted dome. It has been compared with some of the best indoor facilities in all of Canada. As such, we have put together a variety of indoor lacrosse programs this summer to suit your lacrosse player(s).
“If I had my choice, I would have every player under the age of 12 play indoor 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.”
“Being a part of the finesse and physicality of Indoor lacrosse has been a great experience for me. I feel that I have learned and improved as an overall lacrosse player. Learning to adapt in tight space while reading defenders and offensive players has been the biggest improvement in my game.”
“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?”
