Thank you!

I want to thank you again for all that Xcelerate has done this summer. Our son has really thrived in the atmosphere of professional coaching and play that you have offered. His quality of play and skill level has increased and he now feels more confident and qualified on the playing field.

Great experience!

I want to thank you and the coaches for doing such a great job. John has really enjoyed Xcelerate. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of coaches for John; they were positive and very motivating and helped John improve his lacrosse skills. He now loves going to practices and spending more time playing lacrosse. Thanks for everything.
