OUR 10TH YEAR AT UNC Charlotte! For the last 9 years, our UNC Charlotte boys camp has attracted players throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. This year we are proud to offer our first girls camp!

The campus provides a classic southern university setting with cutting edge athletic facilities, air-conditioned dormitories, and a healthy buffet to give everyone a taste of college life. Get ready to have some fun and learn from some of the best coaches in the game today.

Highlights Include

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

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.

Camp Director

Lynda McCandish

Directing the camp at UNC Charlotte will be Lynda McCandlish. A two-time NCAA Division I National Champion McCandlish was named head women's lacrosse coach at Oberlin College on July 28, 2013.

McCandlish helped the Wildcats of Northwestern University win the NCAA title in 2005 and 2006. She was a part of the winningest class in school history at the time of her graduation with 64 wins over four years.

Read Full Bio

McCandlish is a disciple of legendary Wildcats' Head Coach Kelly Amonte Hiller who has led the school to seven out of the last nine NCAA Championships. Since 2005, she has a record of 187-12 and is 215-33 in 13 years. Hiller's coaching tree runs deep as 18 of her former players or assistant coaches are currently coaching at the Division I level.

A native of Upper Arlington, Ohio, McCandlish led her high school alma mater to a state championship in 2008 as the head coach of the Golden Bears. She became the first women's lacrosse player in Ohio history to win a state championship as both a player and coach. Furthermore, she was also the first rookie head coach to win a state championship in lacrosse. In 2002 she helped Upper Arlington win the state crown as a player. In total the program has won five state titles and appeared in nine state final championship games since its inception in 1983.

Following her coaching stint at Upper Arlington, she worked as the head coach at San Diego State University from 2008 to 2009. She also ran the Wildcat Lacrosse Club where she coached elite players from across the San Diego area.

After spending a year in Seoul, South Korea, teaching English, McClandlish returned to the Columbus, Ohio, area where she has worked as a recruiter for the past three years. However, she has remained active in the lacrosse community by running the Mad Skillz Lacrosse Club where she offers various camps, clinics and private lessons.

McCandlish was a double major in communication studies and psychology at Northwestern.
