Our elite lacrosse camps are recommended and geared for players that have Varsity experience and meet the stated age requirements. These camps will focus more on advanced skills, position play, team concepts and an overall intense level of competition.

Our complete skills camps are geared for campers of all ability levels. At camp, campers will be evaluated and will then be grouped according to age and ability. If you are a first time lacrosse player, camp could be a good way to start to learn the game of lacrosse and gain some experience before trying out for your local lacrosse team. As a reminder, all campers must provide their own equipment.

9 Do you offer discounts if our entire team wants to come to camp?

10 Do you offer scholarships?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.
