Recognizing that Massachusetts and New England needed a Box lacrosse-centric training facility, MassBoxLax was born with the goal of fostering and developing the game in a premier state of the art facility. Boston Sports Institute, (BSI) centrally located on Rte 9 in Wellesley, opened in June 2019, and MassBoxLax offers training and leagues for youth, high school, and collegiate players.
The goal is to keep lacrosse community based so MassBoxLax will work closely with Mass Youth Lacrosse(MYL) for girls and boys youth lacrosse programming in our area.
