High School Draw Control Academy | 1/21

Are You Ready to Dominate the Draw Circle? 

Possession time can be the difference between winning and losing in any sport, and that makes the ability to win a draw one of the most sought-after skills in lacrosse. But great draw-specific training can be hard to come by. That is why NXT is bringing you the Draw Control Academy, a small group training session with one goal in mind, to help you dominate the circle. 

The session will be led by one of the best to ever do it, Caitlyn Petro. She will use her technical approach to the skill to help you master the craft. Coach Katrina Geiger, current Drexel University Coach, Loyola Alum, and Athletes Unlimited standout, will join us for the middle school group on 2/1 and 2/8 from 7:30-8:30p.
