    Learned a lot and had a blast!

    July 24, 2017: My son came back energized and excited to put his learning to use. He learned a lot and had a blast. For me, I am most pleased to hear stories about the supportive enviornment the camp fostered. So many times young athletes are encouraged to do anything to be the best, without regard for sportsmanship. My son's experience at camp was focused on supporting each player in their growth without worry of being the best. Players and coaches helped and encouraged each other to be their best each day. This encourages their accountability and commmitment to the team and themselves and is part of what makes being a part of sports so important.

    Learned so much!

    July 20, 2017: I found out that I had been playing goalie the wrong way. This camp showed me that goalie isn't just about saving shots.

    One for the books!

    July 23, 2016: This camp was unlike any camp my son has attended before because it was just for goalies.  He has never felt so special and come home with so many new tips and tricks before.  One of the best parts was that the boys were split into small enough groups to have personal attention from coaches.  By the end of the camp the coaches knew everyone by name and exactly what they needed to work on, as well as their strengths.  Thank you for providing the extra help that my son needed and making his summer one for the books!

    Thank you for such a special week!

    July 23, 2016: This camp was so much fun for my son.  The coaches keep things fun and engaging and they were also very supportive and encouraging for everyone.  Going to this camp was so special for my son because it can be very ahrd to find good goalie instruction.  This camp was all he could have wanted any more.  Thank you for such a special week!

    Show me the skills necessary to succeed!

    July 25, 2015: I personally wanted to thank you for helping me achieve these accomplishments (All Star selection, State Quarterfinalst, Best Goalie Award, First Team All State). Because they have definitely meant a lot to me and I believe they could probably not have been attained without the guidance and wisdom you and the other coaches provided at your camp. Along with a handful of memories, your camp was able to show me the skills necessary to succeed in the sport of lacrosse, as well as the close bonds that are made because of this cherished sport as well.  I most sincerely thank you and your staff, and I hope everything works out for you in the upcoming seasons. Thank you once again, and take care.

    Thank you!

    July 23, 2015: Just wanted to let you know that my son received an award from his coach for specialist of the year! He has progressed as he has because of what he’s learned from your camps. Thank you!

    Very organized!

    July 22, 2015: My son attended a couple of camps this summer. Yours was especially well organized and easy to navigate, as a person arriving from out of state. We appreciated the airport shuttles, reminders and help facilitating our arrival and a great time at camp.
