Everyday my son was excited about what skill they worked on and cannot wait for lacrosse season to come back around to put these newly learned skills into action! Thank you Coach Frank and all the other coaches for another successful camp!

Great coach/camper ratio.
July 2, 2014: Coach Obiesie was great and had such a positive influence on my boys. They had a great time and learned so much. I especially appreciated that the number of campers was kept to a manageable size, so it allowed for a great ratio of coaches to campers. It was a great experience for them and they will definitely attend camp again.
