The Boston Box Lacrosse League is hosting pick-up lacrosse during the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s Day, with two-hour runs scheduled for December 20 and 27 at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham.
The evenings run from 9 – 11 p.m.; cost is $20 per player, with players currently on a BBLL roster paying $10. Play is limited to adults, so all players must be over the age of 18.
Holiday open play is a BBLL tradition, allowing college students home for the holidays a chance to get a good workout, while allowing Boston-area adults to get a taste of what the BBLL is all about. The BBLL provides jerseys for all players.
“We have had fun doing this for years, and it has always been a good way for guys to come experience box, whether it’s because they want to see what the buzz is about, decide if they want to play when they come home in the summer or introduce themselves to our team captains hoping to get a future roster spot,” said BBLL founder Randy Fraser. “Our pick-up games the crowd is pretty eclectic, from guys who are current, active players in the league to guys who played in the past but have been too busy to keep up all the time, to college kids, former players getting a run in with friends and more. It’s a great run, always competitive, but light and fun, a real no-pressure way to experience box.”
