- Rules & Schedule
Location: Ellenberger Ice Rink in Irving ton - We like to call it "The Barn". 5301 East St Clair Street, Indianapolis, IN 46219
The Venue: The historic Ellenberger Ice Rink. Home to the farm team of the 1970's New York Islanders that won multiple Stanley Cup Championships. Rumor has it Wayne Gretzky got his start here! Each bench has 1 door. Each team will get their own locker room for the day. The floor is polished concrete so players must wear basketball style shoes.
Format: We will play real box with US Lacrosse Rules. Each team will be guaranteed 3 games in a tournament format. Games will run from 9 am to 8 pm.
Optional Practice Times: Every team can schedule up to two 1.25 long practices at the Barn, prior to the tournament, to prepare and learn the basics of the box game. Practicing teams would get 1/2 of the field. During the tourney we can also provide your team with an experienced box coach that can help teach the nuances of the box game. To keep it as fair as possible our coaches will teach the same tactics to all the teams and their players.
Officials: We will be using the best experienced box officials possible and each game will have 2 officials.
Athletic Trainer: A certified athletic trainer will be on site.
