boys events

Play among champions.

The Bulldog Bash is about a desire to work hard, play harder, and come out as the top dog in this middle school and high school tournament. NXT has come together with Division I Coach of the Year, Andy Shay, of Yale University to create an unmatched presence of lacrosse in New England. The summer Bulldog Bash tournament has become one of the largest summer lacrosse tournaments in the area, hosting over 100 youth and high school teams annually.

This summer’s event will take place on July 6-7, 2019 on Yale University's campus at the well-known Reese Stadium. This event is open to any and all participants in the corresponding graduation years. Play on the same turf as 2018 Defending National Champions while enjoying New England in the summer. 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.
