Xcelerate Nike Boys Lacrosse Camp at Auburn University Auburn, Alabama

USSC » Lacrosse » Xcelerate » Alabama » Auburn

2014 will be our 2nd year at Auburn University directed by college All-American and pro Jay Card...and we are psyched! It’s the perfect ‘Big Time’ college setting for our high performance camp in the state of Alabama.

Youth and High School lacrosse players from all parts of the southeast will have an opportunity to learn from some of the Best Pro Players and Coaches in the game today. All while staying in safe and comfortable air-conditioned dorms a short distance from the playing fields. It’s going be a great camp!

Highlights Include

  • Free NIKE Lacrosse Head given to the FIRST 25 registered OVERNIGHT campers!
  • The BEST Topnotch Lacrosse Instruction; 8 to 1 Camper to Staff ratio
  • Boys ages 10-18: All Positions - All Levels of Play
  • Clean & Comfortable Air Conditioned Dorm Rooms
  • Xcelerate Nike Reversible Jersey & Lanyard
  • Special Goalie instruction
  • Pre-Camp Specialty Shooting & RPM Defense Clinics available
  • Xcelerate Nike RAFFLE on the last day of camp!

High Performance Instruction…Every Position!

From the beginner to the elite lacrosse player, our camps provide a challenge to every camper. On day one, campers are divided into three divisions (D1, D2, D3) and evaluated by our coaching staff. Once your talent level is assessed, you are placed into a smaller group within your division for individual and team instruction. This group is comprised of campers of the same skill level and relatively same age.
 
As the camp week progresses, every camper has an opportunity to move up to a more advanced group if the camper demonstrates a higher level of play. Our coaches are consistently trying to challenge our campers in order to improve their play as well as make sure that any transition is a smooth one.
 
Your skill level and overall team play will dramatically improve over the course of the camp week. Remember…EVERY FIELD POSITION is covered in our camp: Attack, Midfield, Face-Off, Defense, and Goalie.
