    Thank You!

    July 13, 2018: My son and all the players from camp were able to bond, learn and play their hearts out. They all felt they were well coached and learned new skills to carry into next season. Thank you!

    July 18, 2017: My sons experience was perfection! I know this, not because I attended it with him, but because he is still talking about what an amazing time he had, one week later! Thank you!

    Learned a great deal!

    July 25, 2016: My two boys had a blast at the Clemson camp and learned a great deal. The coaching was superb and the player evaluations at the end of the camp were helpful in identifying what areas of the game the kids needed to work on. My sons have already asked if they can go back next year.

    The instruction and safety were great!

    July 25, 2016: The instruction and safety were great. My son felt he learned a lot and was well cared for. He enjoyed the meals in the cafeteria there on campus and the instruction. He also liked the opportunity to be coached by someone different and get difference perspectives on his techniques.

    Highly recommend.

    July 27, 2015: As a coach of a realtivley new LAX program Buff Grubb (Head Coach) took time to explain and share information with us new coaches. Coach Grubb and the entire coahing staff at Clemson show true love for the game and are very approachable, knowledgeable and willing to offer sound advice. We brought 6 players at different skill levels and they all left camp with a stronger skill set and understanding of the game of Lacrosse. He allowed us on-field to watch drills and instrution up-close. As coaches we've been able to incorporate what we learned into our progams. I would highly recommend this camp.

    See you next summer.

    July 23, 2015: Our son had never officially played lacrosse before and we were amazed at how much he learned in a very short time. The coaching staff was amazing. We were so impressed when introductions were done at the talent our son would be coached by. He came away with a love for the game and is excited about the fall season. Thank you so much for a great camp! He has already asked if he can go next year.

    Well done!

    July 22, 2015: As a parent of a camper, I came and watched the activities every day. It was well organized and run with enthusiam. My son came home excited about the skills and drills and he put them to use in a tournament the following weekend. His coach even commented on his improvement from the camp. Thanks.

    Become a better player.

    July 22, 2015: It brings in players from all areas of the country giving each the opportunity to compete against different styles of play which can work to improve their experience. Having college coaches, college players and high school coaches as instructors gives the campers a wealth of knowledge from which they can use to become better players.

    Great experience!

    July 20, 2015: My son enjoyed his experience at the Clemson Nike Camp and came away knowing he had received a wealth of knowledge and training which he can use to make himself a better player. We would recommend this camp to any lacrosse player seeking to improve their ability to play. After all, that is what it's about, becoming the best you can be and advancing the sport of lacrosse.

    Great for all levels.

    July 20, 2015: Coach Grubb, Thank you and all the other coaches for making Ford's first camp so great. He has not stopped talking about the coaches and all of his "new friends". He has been telling his brother all about camp and how the scad coach is going to send him stuff. He is very happy that the coach/Clemson Goalie is his friend. As a youth coach, I know how much effort it takes to make sure 15-30 players in the same age range feel connected and involved. I am truly impressed that you and your staff accomplished this with 150 kids and a 7 year age spread. It was not just with Ford, Woody and his mother (ford's roomate from Germany) spoke with me for awhile today and he had the same comments on how great the coaches and other campers were to them. Thanks for everything!!

    Great passion for the sport.

    July 17, 2014: Coach Grubb, Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for keeping an eye on Robert while at camp this week. He and his friends had a terrific time and came away with more enthusiasm and drive than ever! We look forward to attending next year.

    Learn new skills.

    July 17, 2014: This was our first resident sporting camp and I was impressed by the ease and detail associated with registration and the information received prior to the camp. My child was the youngest in the camp, and his skill level not as high as the older children, but he still felt very included and received great instruction.

    Impressed with the talent!

    July 15, 2014: Very organized. The staff was amazing. We were so impressed with the talent our son was exposed to and was able to be coached by. One of our favorite things was the evaluation each camper received at the end of camp.
