The NXT Lacrosse Academy (NLA) is our elite winter training for high-performing lacrosse players driven to take their game even higher. Our program matches a player’s intensity with small-group, position-based instruction built on Division I training curriculum. This isn't time to run through the motions in your average drill.
Players will receive constant feedback from our team of staple and guest coaches. We keep group sizes small while players work with positional experts.
Players attending the NLA will participate in fast-paced drills in an intense and competitive setting. Any player in grade 7-12 is encouraged to complete the registration form by clicking the link above. In order to provide an optimum training experience, registration space for the (NLA) NXT Lacrosse Academy is limited by grad year and position. A two-step registration process ensures an accurate number of players fill out pre-determined grad-year and position allocations. Wait-listed players are processed on a weekly basis and will be notified when they have been removed from the waitlist. At that time, they will also receive a notification to pay their invoice to complete the final step of the registration process.
Players train with 100 other local elite lacrosse players each session. Since its launch in 2016, this program has sold out each winter.
Read about our 2018 NLA experience with some notes from our Director including highlights and Workhorse winners.
The curriculum changes every year and every session. Our full-time lacrosse training staff is constantly brainstorming innovative training methods and drills. You won't see the same drill twice at the NLA.
