NXTsports Play Fast Lacrosse. The Play Fast Training curriculum is built around progression drills, position-specific stations and the game of Trashcan Lacrosse: the dynamic 2v2 pick-up game that focuses on developing a great handle, learning to play fast and mastering the 2v1 draw & dump. We introduce a wide range of basic to advanced concepts, add subtle challenges, then ask players to be creative in applying them during small sided games and King of the Can tournaments. All programming is highly organized with a focus on high reps in the core skills of the game. We strive for all players to leave our training sessions with the tools and inspiration to take their game to the NXT level.
