Our most elite box team. Comprised mainly of committed players, seniors, juniors and select sophomores. We will compete in three regional events at the highest level. Most players on this team have real box experience and desire to compete at the highest level. Our training will be intense and physical. This is so beneficial for a player's development to learn to become a complete 2-way player. 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 2-man game. This team has 16 players + 1 goalie. Clubs represented: Brotherly Love, Freedom, HHH, Mesa, NXT, Rough Riders, Team TEN, Uprising.
It’s fast, its physical, it’s fun!
We provide expert coaches, elite curriculum, goalie equipment and a best in class box experience. Not all box programs are created equal. Our program is built around training while some are built around leagues or just game experience. In order to have the success, we desire ample training time is required to teach players the proper techniques and strategy. Our mantra is we train more!
Box is fast paced with a 30-second shot clock, smaller goals and players get far more touches than in field lacrosse. These differences in the game lead to better decision making, learning to play in tight spaces, creativity and becoming the total lacrosse player. In field lacrosse, you have far more specialization whereas in Box you need to learn to play offense and defense. Defensemen are forced to play with short sticks and attackman are forced to learn to play defense. These scenarios are great for total player development.
Our box teams will compete in regional events but our model again is to train more. We believe in having small rosters to have proper coach to player ratios. 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.
We look forward to providing a best in class Box program this winter.
