  2. About Fundamental

Fundamental level skills training is for new to experienced players, ages 7-14.


NXT's fundamental-level program for girls who want to fine-tune their skills and elevate their game. Our professional coaches work with players through a carefully-designed fundamental level curriculum that challenges all skill levels. 

The 8-to-1 player-to-coach ratio is designed to maximize quality reps. During each session, players engage in fast-paced, high-energy drills and small-sided games that reinforce concepts.

Play Fast, Gen NXT, and Pickup Lacrosse Training run each winter season in 90 minute, 4-week blocks.

Play Fast and Gen NXT Lacrosse Camps run each summer, Monday through Thursday in the greater Philadelphia area.

  • Play Fast is also the perfect continuation for Cradle Lacrosse alumni looking to expand their skill set. 
  • Gen NXT is perfect for a Cradle-aged player looking for more challenging and advanced programming. 
  • Play Fast is great for any middle school player who needs extra attention with specific skills!

My daughter already plays on a team, will she be challenged?
• Yes.  We break into groups based on age and skill level. Our coaches also are constantly evaluating groups and are happy to make adjustments throughout the course of a Play Fast program. 

My daughter has never played before, can l still sign her up for Play Fast?
•Yes. Players will get lots of reps working on individual skills and are in groups with players of similar skills and ability levels.  


My daughter wants to be in the same group with her friend, can you make sure they’re paired together?
•Of course, just let us know!

If we miss a session, is there a way to make it up?
•We handle these situations on an individual basis. In many seasons, we run multiple Play Fast sessions.  If you are unable to make one week, it is likely you can hop in to another session.
