The camp programs are under the directorship of Christian Zwickert, a native Delawarean and well known lacrosse athlete and former NCAA lacrosse coach who turned around several college lacrosse programs that consistently had winning seasons during his tenure. Christian is the Director of Coaching Development for Silverbacks Lacrosse and he looks forward to imparting his wealth of lacrosse knowledge to the campers through the development of fundamental and intensive practice plans and coaching strategies to grow your skills.
The Silverbacks Lacrosse Association (formerly the Newark Youth Lacrosse Club ) got its start in 1989 by Bob Shillinglaw, current Head Coach of the Men's Lacrosse program at the University of Delaware. Today, because of Coach Shillinglaw, SBLA has grown to well over 300 boys and girls in its programs and continues to grow each year. SBLA is a member of the Delaware Youth Lacrosse Association who organizes league games, tournaments and oversees the development of youth lacrosse in the "First State."
