Philadelphia A's / Varsity

Our most elite box team. Comprising of committed players, seniors, juniors, and select sophomores. Most players on this team have real box experience and a desire to compete at the highest level. 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.

WHY BOX?

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. As more and more college programs are making box a part of their fall ball training, this is a great way to get an edge on the competition by learning to make quicker decisions and mastering the two-man game.

Clubs represented in 2020-21: 3d Upstate, iM3, Mesa, Nationals, NXT LC, PA Roughriders, Rising Sons, Team 11, and United 

SAFETY

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.
