About Cradle Lacrosse

The Ultimate Introduction to the Sport

NXT's Cradle Lacrosse teaches basic lacrosse skills in a one-of-a-kind, unrivaled environment. Our six-week program focuses on building players' confidence through a unique curriculum that allows kids to be introduced to lacrosse in a fun, unique way. 

Cradle Lacrosse is open to boys and girls ages 4-8 that want to learn lacrosse. Don't worry about the equipment! We provide the sticks, balls, and a t-shirt for your child. The only thing we ask is that they arrive in sneakers and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated! You're more than welcome to bring your own stick or equipment if you so choose!
