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.

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 you camp to St. Louis and giving my boys the chance to attend an outstanding program.

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!
