This team will compete at the A level in tournaments. Most players will have some prior experience training and competing at events. You will be coached by former professional box coaches and players. Our training is fast, physical, and intense; helping you develop into a complete two-way player.
It’s fast, it's physical, it’s fun!
Expert coaching, an elite curriculum, and a best-in-class box experience is what you can expect with Phila Box. Our program is built around training while some are built around leagues or just game experience. In order to have success, you need ample training time to learn the proper techniques and strategy of the indoor game. Our mantra is we train more!
Box lacrosse is played in a fast-paced environment with a 30-second shot clock and smaller goals. You get far more touches and reps than in field lacrosse. These differences lead to better stick skills, quicker decision-making, and creativity. Defensemen are forced to play with short sticks and attackmen are forced to play defense. These scenarios ensure total player development.
Our box teams will compete in regional events but our program is built around training and player development. We believe in having small rosters to have proper coach-to-player ratios. We believe this to be the best off-season training for field players. Learn to make quicker decisions, embrace contact, become a two-way player, and master the two-man game.
Clubs represented in 2020-21: Bandits, Big 4 HHH, Bucks Select, Freedom, NXT LC, PA Roughriders
It is encouraged to have kidney pads that are not traditionally used in field lacrosse. Player safety is something we take pride in at NXT. We provide athletic trainers at every practice as the game is faster and more physical than field lacrosse.
Not all box programs are created equal!
