The best possible mentors!

This camp allowed for a group of boys that absolutely love lacrosse to learn new skills and strategies from the best possible mentors. Not only advancing their skills, but having a ton of fun, too.

Great job!

Just a quick note to let you know our team really enjoyed the camp. What a great camp, and what a great group of coaches you put together. Not only will the boys be better lax players as a result of their experiences, but will no doubt be better young men as well. Great job!

Great experience!

My son had a GREAT experience at your camp. He wants to go back again next year. He was very impressed (as we were too) with the level of expertise. Look forward to next summer.

Your camp was fantastic! The skill level of the coaches and personal attention was very helpful. The days were full and intense. Please let us know when you have your spring camp and also the summer camp for next year!

Alex thought the camp was "awesome". He clearly enjoyed himself and learned many new things. He was very impressed! Alex has gone from an unsure beginner to accomplished enthusiast and is already recruiting friends to play and, no doubt, attend next year's camp.

We will be back next year!

My son has played Lacrosse for 3 years, he is now 13. He plays travel Lacroose in the summer and plays the regular season. He is exposed to many coaches and said the knowledge of the coaches at the Nike camp was obvious. He could not believe what all he learned during this week of camp. The motivation from this camp showed during his summer travel season, thank you Nike and we will be back next year.

Highly recommend this camp!

This camp was exceptional.  the attention to detail was unbeatable, age groups and individuals training groups were split evenly and fairly and the drills were explained well.  My son has been to many lacrosse camps and none of them compare to this one. I am very impressed with the coaching staff and training at this camp.  I highly recommend this camp.

I learned a lot!

I learned a lot at this camp and was always busy. This is a camp you go to to get better and to refine your skills. The only downside was that the dorms were a little farther away from the fields then I would have liked. I am a better player becasue of the instruction I received here.
