Can't wait for next season!

I dropped off my 11 year old, and had to return home, 250 miles away. I was nervous, but he was too busy to be lonely or homesick. He came back with a new workout routine that he and a coach had talked about, his stick skills have improved, but more than anything he is excited about lacrosse-he went to camp at the conclusion of 6 months straight of lacrosse, he can't wait for next season to start, and I credit the coaches for making him feel cared about.

Friendly environment!

The coaches do a good job with instruction and keeping things moving. Players were not standing around doing nothing, they were participating and getting better! My son came home with new skills that he cannot wait to share with his club team.  Thanks for the great instruction and friendly environment.

A Superior Experience!

Thanks so much for the superior experience you all provided at the recent Xcelerate Lacrosse camp. This was truly well done from check in to check out and our son had a ball. Of particular note was the excellent coaching staff!

Blew Away our Expectations!

Each session we saw care, professionalism, passion and skill being passed on to the participants...it was really inspiring for the kids and us as well. In particular, your emphasis on teaching individualized skills on a daily basis, positive reward as a teaching philosophy and helping them understand the power of being a team player were especially evident. You deserve to be successful and we look forward to participating in future camps. Thanks!
