USSC » Lacrosse » Xcelerate » Texas » Georgetown

Come join us IN TEXAS! For the past 7 years we've held our boys camp at Southwestern University and now its time to jump start our 1st annual girls camp. The school’s 700-acre campus is located in historic Georgetown, Texas, just 25 miles north of Austin.

The excellent terrain and warm climate provide the players with a perfect atmosphere for intensive lacrosse training. After each field session, campers are able to take a dip in the campus pool and rest and rejuvenate in the air-conditioned dormitories. Be sure to register early, our overnight dorm space is limited.

Highlights Include

  • The BEST Topnotch Lacrosse Instruction; 8 to 1 Camper to Staff ratio
  • Girls ages 10-18: All Positions - All Levels of Play
  • Clean & Comfortable Air Conditioned Dorm Rooms
  • Xcelerate Nike Reversible Jersey & Lanyard
  • Special Goalie instruction
  • Xcelerate Nike RAFFLE on the last day of camp!

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, Defense, and Goalie.
