8v8 Field League

8v8 short field games combine the action of 7v7 with the concepts and strategies found in 10v10. By adding an extra midfield player, (2 Att, 3 M, 2 D, 1G) offenses learn the importance of triangle rotations while defenses are able to defend with a slide/recovery package not found in other small sided games. The shorter field and tight quarters improve player stick skills, lacrosse IQ, and decision making.
