NXT Lacrosse: A Visit to the Wood Shop

Recently, the NXT Youth Lacrosse program came into the wood shop for a demonstration on the process of making wood lacrosse sticks. Ive spent years on this craft in an effort to share the things Ive learned with lacrosse fans everywhere, and when I get to directly give a lesson to young fans and players, it highlights the importance of sharing knowledge. Nile Thompson, who coordinated the visit, was kind enough to speak with us after the program was over:

My name is Nile Thompson and Im the Director of Youth Lacrosse with NXT and Im also the head coach of the 2016 Boys Team, and we just had our boys come out and visit here. They got to see the wood shop, and Justin showed us how he bends the sticks. And he actually allowed four boys to help him bend some sticks, so that was pretty cool

I got to meet Justin over in Israel in the summer of 2018 when I was playing over there for Team Jamaica. I saw his tent for wooden sticks, and I introduced myself and thats when I found out he had a shop in Philadelphia and being in Philadelphia myself, I thought it would be a great idea to have the boys out, and you know, having the boys out here we got to learn a lot about wooden sticks, they got to learn a lot about lacrosse from Justin, so overall, I think it was a great experience for the parents and the boys as well.

And you can follow us with NXT Lacrosse, at @nxtlacrosse on Instagram.

Id like to take another moment to thank Nile, the parents, and of course, the kids of NXT Youth Lacrosse for visiting the wood shop and making the afternoon incredibly special. Take care. Keep LAXin.
