The new and improved PGHBOXLAX lacrosse leagues are going strong at the Iceoplex at Southpointe! Session #2 will be played on a TURF surface (turf shoes or sneakers, not field cleats, are recommended). Our improvements of adding a shot clock, using “real refs” (ALOA/PIAA-certified) and having an EMT on-site for all games have been well-received by all players and families.
Registration is now open for PGHBOXLAX session#2
