Will definitely be back next year.

My son loved attending the Nike Lacrosse Camp put on at Adrian College, here in Michigan. He is a beginner player, and he loved the individual instruction, and loved staying in the dorms for 3 nights. My son also stated the coaches and assistants were very "cool" as he put it.. He definitely plans on attending again next summer!

Awesome time!

I had an awesome time at the Adrian College Nike Lacrosse camp. I wish I would have heard about it years ago so I could attend again. I am a senior in High School and learned more at this camp than I have in the 6 years that I have played in my home town.

Great for all levels.

I loved this lacrosse camp. It was so much fun. It made me more confident in my abilities. At home I haven’t gotten to play as much as I would like. At camp I got to play a lot and increased my knowledge of the game. I’m definitely coming back next year.

Had a great time!

Our son has attended this camp for the past two years and has enjoyed it tremendously. After each session, he came away with a greater understanding of the game and more refined skills. It also inspired him to work harder throughout the year on his game, as the instructors provided excellent feedback and motivation through their positive coaching and instruction. He's already looking forward to next year. Great camp for any level player!
