Gained confidence!

The individual skills portion of camp helped my son gain confidence and new skills. In the tournament directly following camp, he rarely lost a faceoff—and has a new love and appreciation for the game.

By far the best!

This was our first year at Xcelerate Nike's Camp. We have have been going to Lacrosse camps for 2yrs and this camp is by far the best. My son felt like he learned new skills and it was a higher caliber of coaching. He’s actually wanting to stay the night next year.

Superior experience!

Thanks so much for the superior experience you all provided at the recent Xcelerate Lacrosse camp. This was truly well done from check in to check out and our son had a ball. Of particular note was the excellent coaching staff!

Look forward to participating in future camps!

Each session we saw care, professionalism, passion and skill being passed on to the participants...it was really inspiring for the kids and us as well. In particular, your emphasis on teaching individualized skills on a daily basis, positive reward as a teaching philosophy and helping them understand the power of being a team player were especially evident. You deserve to be successful and we look forward to participating in future camps. Thanks!
