NXT Box

Box lacrosse improves a player’s decision making speed, stick skills, situational awareness and off ball movement. These specific skills are why Canadian players—the creators and masters of box lacrosse—have been so successful at the collegiate level. NXT Box teams develop these skills through a box specific curriculum taught by coaches with box experience and playing in highly competitive winter box tournaments.
