Nike Blue Dog Girls Lacrosse Camp at St. Mark’s School Southborough, Massachusetts
The Nike Blue Dog Lacrosse Camp has relocated from Endicott College to the St. Mark's School for 2014. St. Mark’s is situated on 250 acres in historic Southborough, MA — a setting that provides the rural comfort, beauty, and safety of a small New England town as well as quick and convenient access to the many social and cultural opportunities in nearby Boston, Providence, and Worcester.
The 2014 Nike Blue Dog Lacrosse Camp is a general skills program with the same standards of quality as the Nike Blue Dog Field Hockey Camp. Designed for field players and goalies ages 10-18, this 3 night/4 day camp focuses on individual and team defense as well as stickwork and offensive tactics.
Our goal is to stimulate a love for the game by immersing you in the sport and giving you the kind of focused, intensive training essential to improvement. Over the course of camp, your enthusiasm and self-confidence will grow along with your skills.
