What an awesome camp with an awesome team of coaches. My son met new friends, learned a ton about lacrosse and being a good teammate and he had so much fun. He can’t wait for next year! Thanks Xcelerate for an amazing experience!

Could have stayed 1-2 more days!

My son loved the stringing clinic and all of the coaches. I think you also challenged him. He is excited to go back again. He also said he could have stayed for 1-2 more days.

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

My son thoroughly enjoyed the whole camp experience. The highlight is the evening games and being able to use what he learned during the day in the game at night. The smaller camp makes for more coach/player interaction which is crucial for better player development and greater enjoyment for the camper. The kids really get to know the coaches and the personal interaction/attention given to each camper is invaluable.

  • 4/5.

Some of the highlights for me was the independence, as well as the opportunity to strengthen my lacrosse skills. My favorite part was the gauntlet and the scrimmages.

Made me a better player!

This camp truly made me a better player. Every drill and talk had meaning behind it, which made camp that much more special. Working with these coaches was not only fun, but a chance to see what I need to do to improve and be serious about the sport. Going to this camp has made me value the off season that much more and shown me that I need to put in the work to get the results. Thank you for making me serious about the game!
