Over the next few weeks, NXT will host 13 boys and girls high school lacrosse teams for their spring break. The teams and athletes will practice and stay in the Conshohocken, PA area while having access to top-end facilities such as the Proving Grounds and Steelyard Sports.
Their days will be filled with practice, scrimmages, team bonding, and activities. The Conshohocken area will give the Spring Training teams a chance to scrimmage some of Philly’s top competition ahead of their seasons. Marquee matchups including Penn Charter, Springside Chestnut Hill, The Westtown School, ANC, Holy Ghost Prep, and more highlight the slate of Spring Training games happening this March against the visiting schools.
The Spring Training teams will also have access to everything Conshohocken and the surrounding area have to offer. Schools will have a chance to tour local college campuses, attend 76ers and college lacrosse games, play paintball, and even get exposed to Philadelphia's finest cuisine - the Philly Cheesesteak.
