    this camp exceeded our expectations

    July 29, 2021: My son had a great time and gained a lot of confidence (he is new to the Goalie position). He said the games were a ton of fun and despite the heat he was sad camp was over. The coaching staff did a fabulous job and this camp exceeded our expectations. Would definitely attend again!

    The friends he meets and the staff are awesome

    July 29, 2021: He has done TGS several times and loves it. The friends he meets and the staff are awesome. The statement he made to me was enlightening. He said they should offer a station for the more advanced players the opportunity to receive more shots on goal, rather than the routine drills they do on their own. Thank you for a great experience.

    knowledgeable instructors

    July 29, 2021: He enjoyed being with other boys playing who are also Goalies in Lacrosse and being able to focus on Goalie specific skills with knowledgeable instructors. If you sign up for a private lesson, then you receive an evaluation form. It would be great if the camp did a skills evaluation at the start of camp, or at the end of camp, regardless of the private lesson.

    Amazing coaches!

    August 9, 2019: My son was thrilled with TGS. He says there were so many highlights for him, but the top was all the amazing coaches! He also felt like he really got great instruction on how to properly clear the ball. He LOVED this camp!!!

    reinforced his desire!

    August 8, 2019: My son has only been playing lacrosse for 1 1/2 years but is passionate about the sport and about being a goalie. Being at this camp reinforced his desire to focus on goalie skills and the feedback he got from the coaches was really helpful and encouraging. He is looking forward to taking part in as many of your goalie camps as much as he can!

    Loved Every Minute!

    August 6, 2019: My son loved every minute of it! He feels like he learned some great new skills and really loved the coaching staff. He met some new friends too. He said he would go back and do the entire camp again tomorrow if he could! Looking into the Florida camp now!

    Very impressed!

    June 11, 2017: Instruction from Bill Pilat was awesome! My only wish was that we did a few more drills instead of game play.

    Great time!

    June 11, 2017: I had a great time at camp, everyone was fun and nice. I loved the fact that Bill is there. It's not just his name on the camp, but he is actually there and running the camp.
