Our son would go back again!

The camp addressed lacrosse skills as well as sportsmanship, and the benefits of camaraderie. The camp had a great goalie focus and honed in on skills and small adjustments to improve the player. Our son would go back again!

I would recommend it to everyone!

First time for my son to go to this camp. It was a wonderful experience for him. The coaches were very knowledgeable and showed him things that no other coaches have taught him so far. They were fun to be around and he had a great time. I would recommend it to everyone. You won't be sorry you spent the money!

Great experience!

I sent my two sons to your St Louis camp this summer 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 you camp to St. Louis and giving my boys the chance to attend an outstanding program.

Just wanted to let you know that my son had a great camp this year with you guys. The instruction and on-field time was outstanding! We are definitely going to do it again next year.

Stellar Coaching!

My son raved about the excellent instruction and how impressed he was with all the coaches and instructors. He really felt that his game greatly improved and he feels a lot better about his face offs. Thanks and we hope to see you again next summer!
