OUR 10TH YEAR AT UNC Charlotte! For the last 9 years, our UNC Charlotte camp has attracted players throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

  • Free NIKE Lacrosse Head given to the FIRST 25 registered OVERNIGHT campers!
  • The BEST Topnotch Lacrosse Instruction; 8 to 1 Camper to Staff ratio
  • Boys ages 10-18: All Positions - Intermediate to Advanced

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.

Outstanding!

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 giving my boys the chance to attend an outstanding program.
