NXT SAFETY IS AN INDUSTRY LEADER
NXT follows careful safety procedures at all practices and events. All coaches must be PA Act 153-certified. We also have an athletic trainer on site for every practice, monitor weather and send text alert updates.
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. Phila Box develops these skills through a box-specific curriculum taught by coaches with box experience and playing in highly competitive winter box tournaments with our Phila A's box teams.
Phila Box is committed to continuing our promise of developing lacrosse players and believes playing box is one of the most beneficial ways to improve a player's game. The Phila A's field teams at five different age groups (HS Varsity, HS JV, 7/8th, 5/6th & 3/4th) with elite coaches, curriculum, and events that will directly impact each participant's overall lacrosse IQ.
