My goal and philosophy in to make every camper improve while having the best camp experience possible. We will introduce campers to new skills allowing them to become the best lacrosse player possible, while learning from some of the best lacrosse players and coaches in collegiate lacrosse. The camp will be a mixture of learning new skills and competing in fun games, to allow the campers to apply the new skills they learn in a game setting but also foster the love for the game. I believe, from experience true champions are made in your own backyard and that's only going to happen if you love the game. The skills and attitudes you learn at camp will provide you a foundation to continue to build on in the future and reach your potential. Whether your a midfielder, attack player, or goalie begginer or more advanced athlete we are going to teach you the skills that you need to excel at the elite levels of girls lacrosse.
Key attack skills:
Stick work, shooting form, dodging techniques
Key midfield skills:
Stick work, draw work, defensive footwork
Key defensive skills:
Stick work, defensive footwork, marking the cutter
What is a typical day of the overnight or extended day camp like?
We have three sessions per day. Early in the week we do a good deal of teaching and we progress towards playing a lot of games later in the week. We ask that throughout the "game" schedule campers work on what they learned in camp and their weaknesses rather than work on what they are already good at.
