    Great Camp and Staff!

    June 29, 2018: The practices gave me a chance to get better at my lacrosse skills outside the performance pressure of a game. The coaching staff was awesome and it was great to connect with other lacrosse players.

    Overall a very positive and fun experience!

    July 15, 2017: Coaches were very encouraging, inspiring, and helpful. Really enjoyed the experience. Drill work was good. Learned good skills and techniques. Overall a very positive and fun experience.

    He had fantastic time!

    July 15, 2017: This was our son's first sports camp and we had to pressure him to attend. He did not know what to expect and he felt nervous and apprehensive about going to camp. When we picked him up, he expressed how much he enjoyed the camp and wants to attend next year. He had a fantastic time and cannot wait to attend next year.

    We are looking forward to next years camp!

    June 30, 2017: The after lessons activities were much better then last years camp at Adrian. Loved how the coaches helped the campers order food from local restaurants. The actual games that they played was much better than just the drills they did last year. We are looking forward to next years camp!

    Fantastic experience!

    June 30, 2017: My son had a really great time at camp and learned several new skills...I felt that the camp counselors were exceptional in being good role models for my son. The staff here went well beyond our expectations in setting a good example. I can not thank them enough for that. I would suggest enforcing the no cell phone/electronic rule more in the future. We were hoping that our son was going to be able to simply concentrate on the camp, but other campers were using them throughout the camp which became a distraction at times for my son. Overall this was a fantastic experience.

    Great experience!

    July 19, 2016: Our son really enjoyed talking with the camp counselors. He mostly enjoyed learning new face off skills.  The student coaches went well beyond our expectations in setting a good example.  Great role models!

    Thank you!

    July 17, 2016: My son has been to many college campus lacrosse camps and this one was the most organized by far. Eliminating this stress made it all the more enjoyable for my son (& us parents!). Looking forward to returning for quite some time!

    — Jimmy J. Parent

    • 5/5.
    I am very impressed!

    July 20, 2015: As a parent of a player who has attended summer camp for the last 4 years of playing, I can tell you that more progress was made at this camp than any other camp before. Coaches ENCOURAGED campers to try new skills - explaining that camp is the place to learn not to worry about stats. I am very impressed with the professionalism and knowledge of this camp's coaching staff and their motivation of players in a kind and constructive manner. 

    — Stasha O. Parent
