Nike SPARQ 

Nike is developing a SPARQ Lacrosse rating for female players.  We are excited to have Nike SPARQ attend the Stanford Winter Lacrosse Camp this year.  Nike SPARQ will be coming to the morning session of camp on December 28th.  Your participation in Saturday's activities provides sample norms which are important for rating development.  The rating is an index of athleticism derived from your results on a battery of sport-specific field tests of athletic performance.  The rating can be used to track improvement and see how you compare with your teammates or other players of your age and position.  Nike will launch the SPARQ Lacrosse Rating for women at The Ride 2014.  The test consists of a 20-yard sprint, vertical jump, 30–yard stack shuttle and a rotational power ball throw.

Great experience!

Thank you so much for organizing and running a great camp last week! From the coaching staff to the accomodations to the fun activities in between, the camp was a fantastic learning experience that I would definitely return to and recommend to other players.  I feel as though my level of play has improved greatly, and I now have further insight into what the college game is all about.

Thanks!

Many thanks for all your great coaching, support, encouragement of my 3 daughters last week at the Stanford Camp.   They loved it – and loved YOU guys ! – and cannot thank you enough for being so great to them (and us).  They truly had a great time, learned lots and hopefully will now apply that knowledge to the field to help them excel even more.
