Loved it!

I started this camp with very little knowledge of Lacrosse. I could throw and sort of catch, but that was about it! Throughout this camp, I learned how to catch and throw correctly, I learned the rules of the game, I learned tons of skills! After going to Nike Lacrosse Camp I feel confident about trying out for my high school team! I would most definitely recommend Nike Lacrosse Camp!

USD Nike Lacrosse Camp was a really good experience to play competitive lacrosse with other players from across the country. The coaches had college lacrosse experience and were so fun to play with and learn from. It was a fun way to keep my skills up during the summer! I can't wait to go back to Nike Camp next summer!
