LOTS OF ONE-ON-ONE TIME!

The group was relatively small compared to another camp I have attended. This made the coaches more available and more oppoetunities for one-on-one time and personal conversation with coaches.  I loved the pre-camp clinic on shooting and dodging and was abel to refine some of my skills even in that short amount of time. I look forward to next year!

FOR PEOPLE WHO LOVE LACROSSE!

Though it might not be as "high-profile" as other camps, but it was instructive, personal, and informative. This camp is exactly what it's meant to be, an enjoyable learning experience for people who love lacrosse.

OUTSTANDING!

Knowing that your staff took good care of them (especially William who at 10 yrs was one of the youngest) made the camp a winner for my wife and I. Thanks for giving my boys the chance to attend an outstanding program.

AWESOME!!

My son truely enjoyed working with the coaches and being in an environment that was all about lacrosse. As a fairly new player this was just what he needed to get excited about the game. Our only complaint is that the campus is spread out and the walk from the dorms to the field can be a bit long. Overall this camp was awesome!!
