Head Camp Director, Jay Card, will head up an ALL-STAR cast of coaches ready to teach the up and coming stars of the region.

With brand NEW playing fields and air conditioned dorms, campers will get a true taste of college life. The playing talent is rich in the beltway and our coaches can’t wait to help campers reach a new level of play. Register Early!

High Performance Instruction…Every Position!

From the intermediate 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.

Thank you!

I'd like to thank you, for giving Josh a great experience. He came away with improved skill and more confidence in his game. The group of boys from Florida that we traveled with could not stop talking about their week with you, how much they learned and how fun the camp was. I think I can safely say you did a great job with our boys from Jupiter, Florida.

Great experience!

I sent my two sons to your St Louis camp this summer (Bradley and William) and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Knowing that your staff took good care of them (especially William who at 10 yrs was one of the youngest) made the camp a winner for my wife and I. Thanks for bringing your camp to St. Louis and giving my boys the chance to attend an outstanding program.

Thanks for Everything!

I want to thank you and the coaches for doing such a great job. John has really enjoyed Xcelerate. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of coaches for John; they were positive and very motivating and helped John improve his lacrosse skills. He now loves going to practices and spending more time playing lacrosse. Thanks for everything.

Your camp was fantastic! The skill level of the coaches and personal attention was very helpful. My son said the days were full and intense. Please let us know when you have your spring camp and also the summer camp for next year!
