The Difference

BOOST SKILLS.

Lacrosse itself is a creative game.  Our camps were designed to provide a well-rounded experience for our campers leaving them excited and passionate about the game.  Click below for a snapshot of what your camper will experience on a daily basis.

BUILD CHARACTER.

X’ and O’s are just one component of our lacrosse camp.  In order to educate campers about the roots of the game, we have intentionally selected past players who are able to provide inspirational stories unique to the sport of lacrosse.  We call these past players our WARRIORS.  

BE A WARRIOR.

Our staff is different.  We truly care about the overall development and well-being of each camper.  We are confident the variety of lacrosse related activities we offer will leave a lasting impression.  We look forward to sharing the joy of the sport with your son.

Favorite Quote:  “Don’t stop when your tired.  Stop When your done.”   

Boost Skills.
  1. Progression drills:  We never do line drills and always teach the skill before competing in a live format.  
  2. Smaller games with smaller nets:  Smaller field space + smaller teams = higher reps and more ball touches for everyone.  
  3. Halftime Games:  Dodge ball, water balloon toss, target gallery   These are just some of the ways we keep camp fresh.
  4. Custom gifts:  Each camper will receive a locally crafted custom strung stick.  Plan on using during camp.    
Build Character.
