This is a great camp for players of all levels!

I believe Xcelerate Lacrosse offers more individualized learning of the particular positions then the other camps I have attended.  They also spend many hours helping and teaching new and improved ways of bettering those positions for the girls.  This is a great camp for players of all levels!

The coaching staff was incredible!

The Xcelerate Nike Girl's Lacrosse Camp this summer at Auburn University was one of the most productive events our daughter has ever attended. She received one-on-one personalized instruction for her position of Goalie, and was encouraged to stretch herself and learn to play other positions as well. The coaching staff was incredible! We can't wait for next summer!

Great experience!

Our daughter attended camp and had a great experience. She learned so many new skills, improved on her game, made new friends and had a great time. What more could you ask for?

Well done!

Thanks so much for the superior experience you all provided at the recent Xcelerate Nike Lacrosse camp in Auburn. This was truly well done from check in to check out and our daughter had a ball. Of particular note was the excellent coaching staff. We had the opportunity on four occasions to come and observe. Each time 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. Thanks
