The last two years has seen the sport of lacrosse and the news media that covers the game, come to the inescapable conclusion that indoor (box) lacrosse is one of the most effective activities in developing the motivated lacrosse players skills to the highest competitive levels. Over this period, both Inside Lacrosse Magazine and Lacrosse Magazine have been dedicating a greater proportion of their journalistic and editorial content to all things "indoor."
This month's issue of Inside Lacrosse is the latest example of how central the indoor game has become to the sport, and why college coaches can't seem to get enough of players with indoor lacrosse skills. Presently, college coaches have to go across the border to Canada or the Native American reservations to find players with this knowledge and skill set.
But, the time has now arrived and the landscape has changed as programs like the Fire Lacrosse Club begin to teach indoor lacrosse skills to its field players through program "integration" and the establishment of elite indoor lacrosse programs.
