Nike Top of the Class/Governor’s Academy (2016 & 2017s) Byfield, Massachusetts
US Sports Camps, Inc. has partnered with the coaches from Harvard University, Stanford University and the University of North Carolina in offering the Nike "Top of the Class" Lacrosse Camps. The program is hosted at The Governor's Academy, located 30 miles north of Boston in Byfield, MA.
TOP OF THE CLASS SHOWCASE (July 23-26)
- 4th Annual showcase for the premier high school player (Restricted to: 2016 and 2017s).
- The staff at Top of the Class is made up of terrific coaches from great academic institutions.
- Top of the Class is a great opportunity to work with top lacrosse programs from some of the finest universities and colleges in the country.
This showcase camp differs from most in that each camper will receive individual instruction from each college coach in small station groups during camp. The showcase program focuses on advanced skills, position play, team concepts and an overall intense level of competition. Night games will be coached by the college coaches where you will get the opportunity to work with them in a competitive team atmosphere.
- Showcase Camp for premier high school players (Restricted to 2016 and 2017s)
- Superior instruction from NCAA College Coaches and Former Players
- 10:1 camper to instructor on field ratio and 24 hour supervision
- Special goalie instruction
- Every camper receives a reversible Nike practice jersey
- Nike and STX Prizes for outstanding play, sportsmanship and improvement
Special Goalie Instruction
Goalies will be given training involving development of their individual technique as well as instruction in game like situations. In addition to focusing on individual instruction, each goalie will participate in shooting drills as well as drills designed to include the goalies as an integral part of a team defense.
The Governor’s Academy is the oldest continuously operating boarding school in America and opened its doors more than a decade before our nation was born. The Academy sits on a beautiful 450-acre campus and the athletic facilities rival those of many small colleges and universities.
