Awesome experience!

I had an awesome time at this Nike LAX camp. We were always active and learning, there was very little down time. All of the coaches were awesome. Each one took the time to know my name and help. After every shift and every drill the coaches had feedback and ways to help me improve. They were always paying attention and always tring to help me get better. It was an awesome experience.

The Best Lacrosse Camp!

The best lacrosse camp my son has been to. He was so excited to come home and apply everything he had learned.  My only complaint was that it was just for a week!

Lots of one-on-one time!

The group was relatively small compared to another camp I have attended. This made the coaches more available and more oppoetunities for one-on-one time and personal conversation with coaches.  I loved the pre-camp clinic on shooting and dodging and was abel to refine some of my skills even in that short amount of time.  I look forward to next year!

for people who love lacrosse!

Though it might not be as "high-profile" as other camps, but it was instructive, personal, and informative. This camp is exactly what it's meant to be, an enjoyable learning experience for people who love lacrosse.

See you next year!

We were extremely happy with your camp. Our son Jordan was very happy with the coaching and finished the camp with a new enthusiasm for the sport. We will be back next year!

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.

Awesome!!

My son truely enjoyed working with the coaches and being in an environment that was all about lacrosse. As a fairly new player this was just what he needed to get excited about the game.  Our only complaint is that the campus is spread out and the walk from the dorms to the field can be a bit long.  Overall this camp was awesome!!
