High Performance Instruction…Every Position!

From the beginner to the elite lacrosse player, our camps provide a challenge to every camper. On day one, campers are divided into three divisions (D1, D2, D3) and evaluated by our coaching staff. Once your talent level is assessed, you are placed into a smaller group within your division for individual and team instruction. This group is comprised of campers of the same skill level and relatively same age.

As the camp week progresses, every camper has an opportunity to move up to a more advanced group if the camper demonstrates a higher level of play. Our coaches are consistently trying to challenge our campers in order to improve their play as well as make sure that any transition is a smooth one.

Your skill level and overall team play will dramatically improve over the course of the camp week. Remember…EVERY FIELD POSITION is covered in our camp: Attack, Midfield, Face-Off, Defense, and Goalie.

Camp Details

A detailed camper registration packet containing check-in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers prior to camp. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.
