The Northstar Experience: Leadership. Talent. Development.

In addition to providing intimate exposure to high-level college coaches, the Northstar Showcase curriculum concentrates elements of the game to develop the whole student athlete - to foster skill development, competition, confidence, fun, camaraderie, game IQ, respect, leadership - all intended for each athlete to leave NSS better equipped to achieve their goals for lacrosse at the next level. The NSS curriculum makes for a jam-packed, high-intensity, FUN day of lacrosse.

We strongly believe that it's most important to focus on becoming the best student athlete possible, choosing opportunities to develop on and off the field - that priority #1 should be to become as recruitable as possible, so that when the time comes, you are in a position to maximize your opportunity. Focusing on your development (academically, first and foremost), along with due diligence, choosing strategic recruiting opportunities, and fostering your relationships within the sport, will help you take control of your own process, and put you in a position to succeed. 

NSS is pillared on the trusted philosophy, quality, and value established by Northstar in 2012. At our core is a strong commitment to do our best for Northstar athletes and their families, and to provide them with as much value as possible. We are confident that families will benefit from their experience, and we look forward to welcoming the next wave of athletes into the Northstar family.
