There is a certified Athletic Trainer at every NXT camp and training to keep kids safe. And all NXT coaches must be PA-Act 153 Certified.
Play Fast Camp is NXT's fundamental-level four-day camp for boys ages 7-14 who want to tune-up their skills and elevate their game.
For players of all levels and positions, including goalie, the carefully-designed Play Fast curriculum skips the lines and puts players through fast-paced, high-energy drills. The 8-to-1 player-to-coach ratio keeps things moving.
In the morning players work on individual skill development and team concepts, with the afternoon dedicated to team bonding, splash games, and scrimmages.

As our community continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to get back to hosting summer programming. If as anticipated, Southeastern Pennsylvania moves into the Yellow Phase of recovery as of June 5, NXT will begin to run summer programming (“Yellow Phase Summer Programming” or “YPSP”) in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In light of the circumstances imposed on us by COVID-19, YPSP will look different than previous NXT programming. In this document, we will outline the measures we’re taking to create as safe an environment as possible for YPSP attendees during these unprecedented times. Click here for the full document.
