It's a great time!

It's a great time to be away from home with your lax brothers! I really liked being in the dorms and meeting some cool people. I already asked my mom if I can go next year, and she said yes! Until then Xcelerate!

See you next year!

Just wanted you all to know that Austin had a great time! He was really impressed with the coaches and learned a lot. Thanks for taking the time to spend with these kids. See you next year!

Best camp yet!

Tyler told us it was the best camp yet for Lacrosse and to my delight he actually admitted that he got a lot out of it, not bad for a kid that is already a competent Lacrosse player and a senior starting attack. We will see you next year!

Great investment!

Your staff truly inspired an abiding love of the sport. My son is a soccer player and a golfer but even though it's not lax season he gets his stick out and throws at least twice a week. Xcelerate really lit the fire. A great investment!
