Couldn't be happier!
August 10, 2017: Our first year at Nike lax camp and we couldn't be happier!! Coaches were fantastic.
— Brent R. Parent
August 11, 2016: Coach Isaac Neal is fantastic! My 7th grade son really likes the workout he gets from him. Not only does he get great workout, but more importantly he gets a tremendous amount of quality coaching and lax IQ from Coach Neal. I would definitely recommend attending one of his camps as I am sure Coach Neal will bring the same level of dedication, knowledge and spirit he has consistently displayed to my son and the others I have seen him work with.

August 10, 2016: My son has participated in a number of group clinics and camps with Coach Neal over the last few years. He has had always had a fun experience and we have seen tremendous improvement in his game and overall lacrosse knowledge. In particular Coach Neal has been instrumental in helping my son successfully transition to long pole over the last two years.
