Camp Questions & Answers
How experienced do you have to be to attend camp?
Players should already have at least 5 years of playing experience, have at least one year of varsity experience, be on their way to making varsity at their school, have elite travel team experience or have the recommendation of their club or high school coach. Each player should be able to go lefty or righty and handle at least 95% of passes thrown to them in drills and game situations.
Is this a recruiting camp?
College coaches will be on staff just like they are at all of our camps. However, we are not guaranteeing you will be recruited or get a scholarship.
If you're not guaranteeing recruitment to a college then what's this camp all about?
This camp is for the college bound player to get coached by college coaches in a situation where you will be treated like a college player. It will still be a teaching and learning situation, like all our camps, but in a more competitive setting.
Should I attend both the instruction camp and the SB60 Showcase at the same location during the summer?
Attend both camps when schedule allows to get the most out of your camp experience. A $150 discount is offered for campers who attend both camps as resident campers to encourage attendance at both camps. If you qualify for the SB60 Showcase then you will be in the advanced group in the Game Development Camp. We've extended this super deep discount for players who love lacrosse and can't get enough of it. By attending the first camp you'll get all our skill development and great coaching in groups with campers of similar experience level. You'll then be warmed up and ready to go for the super competitive SB60 Showcase that follows where the pace of play jumps up a notch and challenges all athletes.
