    We will definitely be returning!

    June 26, 2021: My son was thrilled to be around other goalies! His skills improved and he came home and got in our back yard net after camp each day. We will definitely be returning!

    Best Camp!

    July 23, 2019: He's been to a lot of lacrosse camps-this by far is the very best. It is organized, fun, and the kids were taught great technical skills!

    Outstanding camp! Highly recommend for campers of all skill levels!

    June 29, 2018: Bill Pilat's Goalie School was outstanding in every way imaginable. They had coaches from all over the country and college players to shoot on us. The goalie school covers everything a goalie needs to know which includes, but is not limited to, ark play, angles, stance, practice drills, proper form, reaction, and agility. I would highly recommend this camp to all goalies, whether they are just starting out or they have years of experience.

    Wonderful Camp!

    July 10, 2017: This was my son's first LAX camp. He took away several valuable lessons and a greater love of the position. Specific training for LAX goalies is difficult to find, I was very excited to find yours, and very excited by my sons enthusiasm. While at camp I saw a lot of smiling faces at both drop off and pick up. I was impressed that you drew in kids from coast to coast, and every level and age. The younger learn from their older peers, and the new players learn from the more experienced. The campus was beautiful and a great setting for this wonderful camp!

    — Diana H. Parent

    • 5/5.

    July 10, 2017: It was a great experience with great coaches. They taught me a bunch of different skills that I have been doing wrong for as long as I played and taught me new tricks to improve my game on a daily basis. They had great drills they taught us and I can take home and even do them at home and on the field.

    — Seth C. Camper

    • 5/5.
    Loved the videoing!

    July 9, 2017: Dylan liked the fact he was videoed so that they could go over his form and he could see exactly what they were talking about. We will definitely be back again next year. It was great seeing so many goalie sticks going up and down the field.

    — David J. Camper

    • 5/5.
    We will be back!

    July 8, 2017: My son has not stopped talking about camp since he got home. He loved being able to go to a camp where they only focused on goalie specific training, something that he has never experienced before. We will be back next summer!

    — Wade F. Parent
