UWLX Announces Hybrid Box-Field Format with Olympic Rules Experimentation For Season Four
BOSTON — The United Women’s Lacrosse League has announced evolutions for the 2019 season to include a box-field hybrid format and experimentation with Olympic-style rules.
In a first for professional women’s lacrosse, the UWLX will take on a box-field format for 2019: the league schedule will consist of box games, played with modified indoor rules and a six-on-six format, and field games, some of which will be played in a small-sided format using an iteration of women’s field rules proposed for future use in the Olympics.
