About

We Develop Lacrosse Players

NXTchicago Lacrosse Club is the first and only NXTsports Club outside of the Philadelphia area. Our program started in the summer of 2014 when we launched our first high school team in Chicago. Since that summer's launch, NXTchicago has grown to six teams. Our club has created its mark in the Chicagoland area by providing a small-club feel that is backed by the highly-regarded Showcase Lacrosse events. Our model is built around player development, with our approach to practices, tournaments and creating individual accountability to all of our players. These attributes allow players to mature as lacrosse players and sets them in line to advance their lacrosse careers.  

 

NXT Chicago Summer Tryouts for our 2020 team are coming up on February 26. REGISTER HERE for tryouts.
