Play among champions.

The Fall Bulldog Bash is about a desire to work hard, play harder, and come out as the top dog in this youth, middle school, and high school tournament. NXT has come together with former Division I Coach of the Year and 2018 National Champion coach, Andy Shay, of Yale University to create an unmatched presence of lacrosse in New England. 

The fall Bulldog Bash tournament has become one of the largest fall lacrosse tournaments in the area, hosting over 100 youth and high school teams annually.

This event happens twice a year in both the summer and fall so be sure to sign your teams up for both to play against the nation's highest competition.
