Learned So Much

Amanda went to Nike Lacrosse camp at Adrian college as a beginner - and came out as a much more advanced player. She "learned so much" (her comment) and is confident she will make the highly competitive high school team because of her new skills.

Step up your game.

The camp truly helped me become a better lacrosse player. The coaches spent a lot of time getting us to understand the techniques and strategies of the game. Sharpening these skills against other quality players makes this camp one of the best.

We are always doing something, I was never standing around. It is intense but not so intense that I dislike it since summer camps are suppose to be fun.
