ABOUT FUNDAMENTAL

Play Fast Training is NXT's fundamental-level program for boys who want to fine-tune their skills and elevate their game. Our professional, high-level coaches work directly with players through our the carefully-designed Play Fast curriculum to challenge all skill levels. 

Play Fast is designed to maximize quality reps, which is why there's an 8-to-1 player-to-coach ratio. Players go through four 90-minute weekly sessions of fast-paced, high-energy drills, short lines and lots of small-sided games!

Play Fast Lacrosse Training in the fall, winter & spring seasons are 90 minute sessions that take place over 4 to 6 weeks.

Play Fast Lacrosse Camps run each summer from 9 AM - 3 PM, Monday through Thursday in the greater Philadelphia area.

FAQs

My son already plays on a team, will he be challenged?
• Yes.  We break into groups based on age and skill level.  Our coaches also are constantly evaluating groups and are happy to make adjustments throughout the course of a Play Fast program. 

My son has never played before, can l still sign him up for Play Fast?
•Yes. Players will get lots of reps working on individual skills and are in groups with players of similar skills and ability levels.  

 

My son wants to be in the same group with his friend, can you make sure they’re paired together?
•Of course, just let us know!

If we miss a session, is there a way to make it up?
•We handle these situations on an individual basis. In many seasons, we run multiple Play Fast sessions.  If you are unable to make one week, it is likely you can hop in to another session.
