This past January, NXT introduced a new program available to girls in the 2023 - 2027 grad years to acclimate them to the world of indoor box lacrosse. This 2-week program took place at Steelyard Sports in King of Prussia and focused on understanding the rules, language, and strategies as well as offensive and defensive fundamentals of box lacrosse.
NXT Girls Lacrosse Division was founded in the fall of 2015 under the directorship of former NCAA Division I head coach turned club director, Kate Henwood. Four years later, Coach Henwood has now become an Executive Vice President at NXT, and has since turned the reins over to three impressive hires, all with DI coaching experience. It has come as no surprise that NXT Girls Lacrosse has quickly emerged as a Philadelphia Powerhouse, and now boasts a fourteen team portfolio from 2020-2029 graduation years.
