Fantastic team of coaches!

Such a phenomenal experience all the way around.  From the staff who answered to phones for Nike, to the fantastic team of coaches at Baldwin Wallace, this was the best experience possible. I was so impressed! He asked to return next year before we'd even returned home!

Fantastic experience!

This was my son's first sleep away camp, and he went in without knowing anyone. From the moment we arrived at checkin, I knew that this camp was something special. The staff is amazing and the setup is perfect (small, contained, safe feeling). By the end of the first night, I was getting a flurry of happy texts. My son got great coaching and instruction and a fantastic experience. I would honestly have paid the entire amount just for the talk the coaches gave at departure! The coaches, from the top down, knew each of the kids and said goodbye warmly at the end. The staff were good teachers and amazing role models. I've already told all the lacrosse moms in my area!

Great experience!

My son had never played Lacrosse before this camp. He was able to learn some very solid basic skills. He feels confident that he will be able to play with his school team this coming year.  It was a great experience for him and he is happy he found a new sport to play!

made me a better player!

This camp truly made me a better player. Every drill and talk had meaning behind it, which made camp that much more special. Working with these caoches was not only fun, but a chance to see what I need to do to improve and be serious about the sport. Going to this camp has made me value the off season that much more and shown me that I need to put in the work to get the results. Thank you for making me serious about the game!

A Great Experience!

Corbin has had the time of his life! He really likes his coaches and has mentioned several times how much he has learned. He has already said he wants to go back next year! So, I guess we will see you again next summer. Thanks for all you have done to make this a great experience for my son.

Thanks for a great camp!

My son learned many new skills during the Xcelerate Nike lacrosse camp, and he had a great time while doing so. He is already looking forward to next year's camp, and we've been telling all of our lacrosse friends about it. Thanks for a great camp!
