Phila 99ers / High School

As box lacrosse gains momentum in the US, Phila Box is powering the Phila 99ers, a full girls box program! The 99ers will focus on educating and serving players who want to improve their skills by playing a different version of lacrosse in the offseason while gaining the opportunity to learn from some of the best box lacrosse coaches in the world!

WHY BOX?

It's fast, it's physical, it's FUN!

Box lacrosse is played 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, creativity, quicker decision-making, and becoming the total lacrosse player. 

Expert coaching, an elite curriculum, and a best-in-class box experience is what you can expect with Phila Box. 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!

SAFETY

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. We will gradually introduce equipment to the teams with the goal that by the end of the season, we are wearing full pads, helmets, and playing by official rules. Goalie equipment will be provided.

We look forward to providing a best-in-class box program this winter.
