Facilities

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.

Thanks Xcelerate!!

My son had a great time! Your staff truly inspired an abiding love of the sport. My son is a soccer player and a golfer and even though it's not lax season he gets his stick out and throws at least twice a week. Xcelerate really lit the fire. A great investment!

Greatly Improved His Skills!

Our son attended camp and had a great experience. He learned new skills, improved on his game, made new friends and had a great time. The coaches all had just the right approach and personality for these kids plus I understand the food was really good! What more could you ask for?
