Camp Questions & Answers

How do you separate campers into groups?

We use high school graduation year and experience level to separate field players into groups of about 12 campers for each coach. The group gets their own college coach assigned to them and instruction is tailored to experience level. Coaches are given the leeway to increase or decrease the difficulty level of the drills based on what they see in the players.

What fields will my camper be playing on?

We are training and playing on the Recreation Center Turf at UCSB. Please refer to the UCSB campus map in the registration packet to help you locate it if you'd like to watch your son play in the end of the camp tournament games on the last day of camp. Parking is best in Lot 16 or 18 off Ocean Road to get close to the turf. Please be advised you will need to purchase a parking permit at a self-serve kiosk. Alternatively park at Tropicana Gardens or Del Norte back parking lots for free and make the short walk over to the field.

Do you accept beginners?

Absolutely yes! We love to have beginners and they get their own group with their own coach. Beginners can develop at their own pace. During scrimmages the beginners match up on each other to help alleviate that nervous "first time in a game" feeling.

What about goalies?

Goalies also get their own group and their own coach. Some of the best college goalie coaches are on our staff. We get you someone who coaches goalies for a living. Goalies have their own station and join with the field players when they're ready.

I'm an experienced player. Is this camp going to help?

We think so. Our coaching staff is primarily made up of college coaches who coach lacrosse for a living. Many run their own camps but like to come to "different" lacrosse areas to help develop the game. Even if you think you've heard it all these coaches will find a way to make you a better player.
