East Coast Elite (ECE) Winter Box Travel Team Program and Tryouts

The East Coast Elite National Development Program (NDP) allows for players to experience top level box lacrosse training and game play while providing flexibility around players’ multi-sport winter schedules. Our NDP program utilizes a boot camp training model to maximize learning advanced team box lacrosse over single-day multi-hour training sessions combined with competing in top level East Coast Box tournaments. Collectively this allows for a lot of box development over just a few days of participation. We also offer a Box lacrosse Training academy during the weekdays for National team and non-national team athletes to gain the benefits of advanced box lacrosse training.

East Coast Elite (ECE) B0x National Development Program (NDP) Tryouts

The East Coast Elite (ECE) Box National Development Program (NDP) allows for players to experience top level box lacrosse training and game play while providing flexibility for people to choose their participation level based on their winter schedule.


ECE NDP will be fielding 2 teams per age group (3rd/4th; 5th/6th; 7th/8th; 9th/10th; 11th/12th) for two levels of play (AAA/AA). The program offers a 3 boot camp/2 tournament model (5 single weekend days).


  • Boot Camps: Teams will meet for three 2.5 hour boot camps which will consist of developmental training sessions on and off the field combined with scrimmaging. Training in 3 concentrated time blocks allows for us to maximize learning while reducing commuting. 

  • Tournaments:  National Teams will also play in 2 high level box tournaments to go head to head with top competition.

  • Box Academy Training: In addition to the Boot Camp/Tournament model - we will be providing optional regional training academies during the weekdays that are intended to be localized to give players access to high end box lacrosse developmental training (individual skills combined with small sided game play). There will be 10 total sessions offered at the Inline Rink (Morristown) and ISCA (North Arlington)
