    Great Instruction!

    June 29, 2018: My daughter told me that this is the first lacrosse camp where she wasn't just used as shooting practice for other campers and that she received great tips from her coaches to improve her skills and got feedback and what she needs to work on.

    Great experience!

    July 12, 2017: The highlight of my camp experience was getting to stay overnight, meeting, and doing the thing I love with people who play the same position.  I was able to make friends with people who understand and share what I go through as a goalie.

    — Mary D. Camper

    • 5/5.
    Lots of play time!

    July 12, 2017: My main highlights were socializing with other goalies from all over the country in a total lax atmosphere, with LOTS of playtime and positive coaching!
