    LOVED this camp! Thank you!

    June 24, 2018: My daughter has been to a couple other well respected general lacrosse camps at renowned universities in California that say they have goalie section. She was always disappointed. She LOVED this camp. She says she got a lot out of it and is really looking forward to coming again next year. Thank you!
