The Rochester Knighthawks and Buffalo Bandits are pleased to announce an Early Bird special price of $550 for the inaugural season of the Upstate Collegiate Box Lacrosse League (UCBLL). That’s a saving of almost $150 if you act now!
The UCBLL features an 8-game regular season schedule, five practices, and playoffs, with all games and practices on Monday and Wednesday nights. The league runs from June 7 to July 28, and playoffs conclude in early August, culminating with the league champion competing for the NCBS National Championship in San Jose California (hotel and airfare included). The league will focus on proper skill development, training techniques, conditioning, and the work ethic required to play at the highest level of indoor box lacrosse – the NLL.
The registration fee provides each player a jersey, shorts, shooting shirt, box helmet, and over 25 hours of world-class training. The league is open to high school seniors, college freshmen to fifth-year seniors, and non-college players, ages 18-21, who have not signed a professional contract.
“Playing in the UCBLL is a fantastic opportunity for college players to learn the nuances of the box game, like improving reaction time and decision making,” said Knighthawks General Manager Dan Carey. “It’s a chance to play high-level lacrosse over the summer, which will give you an edge next season and help you take the next step in your lacrosse career. If playing in the NLL is your ultimate goal, this is the forum to showcase your talents in front of league general managers and scouts.”
The Upstate Collegiate Box Lacrosse League has announced an all-star lineup of coaches for the inaugural season. It includes Zed Williams, Dan Coates, Ron Cogan, Jordan Jarvis, Ethan O’Connor, Bradley Voigt and Brendan Bomberry! One more coache to be announced shortly.
