NXTsports is proud to host the first-ever Trashcan Lacrosse Experience Saturday at FDR Park across from the South Philadelphia Sports Complex.
Trashcan Lacrosse is the wildly popular, fast-growing, two-on-two pickup version of lacrosse that allows athletes of all ages to play fast and play anywhere. The Trashcan Lacrosse Experience is completely free for all participants. NXT’s entire coaching staff will be on hand to teach Trashcan Lacrosse and compete against all comers.
The Trashcan Lacrosse Experience will be a mix of open pickup games, some impromptu tournaments and competitions, and two formal tournaments to crown Kings of the Can. The TLE will run from 10am-2pm, and players are welcome to stay for all or part of the time. Young players will also have the opportunity to challenge pro players – such as Philadelphia Wings Assistant Captain Brett Manney – to a game of Trashcan.
In addition, Nike Lacrosse will be on hand with some amazing prizes and giveaways. Nike will be providing customized Elite socks to event participants (supplies permitting), Some Lucky Trashcan players will have the opportunity to test Nike Fuelbands during competition and compete to be crowned highest Highest Fuel Earner of the tournament. Nike will also be providing prizes for tournaments champions, including Nike Huarache cleats and Fuelbands.
Interested players should take a minute to pre-register for the TLE at TrashcanLacrosse.com. By pre-registering you can handle the waiver process and all pre-registered players can skip the line and will gain immediate access on Saturday.
