Introducing the Phila A's

The NXT High School Box programs are officially rebranding as the Phila A's starting in 2021! The Varsity and JV teams will now dawn the blue and red of the Phila A's while the middles school teams and below will remain under the original NXT brand. 

While the jersey may be different, the best in class box experience remains the same.

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 NXT. 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 2019-20: Bandits, Black Bear, Crabs, Dukes, Fusion, Freedom, Headstrong Quaker, IM3, Mesa, NXT, Phila Stars, Rising Sons, Team 11

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.
