    Great Camp!

    June 30, 2018: My son cannot stop talking about the camp! He enjoyed the hours of play, meeting friends who love lacrosse, and the staff was very positive and supportive! Emory University is a beautiful campus and he expressed that the food was great! Thank you for a great experience... wish it could've been longer!

    So fun!

    Great experience!

    July 18, 2017: My son said the high point for him was the evening discussions between the players and the coaches. He said he enjoyed it because the coaches took time to get to know the players and their needs and the players got to know one another. He said he also got some good field tips as well. He said he enjoyed it overall better than last year...thank you for making that happen!

    Loved it!

    July 14, 2017: A highlight for my son was the new lacrosse experience and first time away for camp. He loved making new friends and the food!

    The best camp!

    July 22, 2016: I've been to Nike Xcelerate Lacrosse Camp at Emory University for 2 years in a row. If your a beginner who needs to learn the skills, or an intermediate/advanced player who needs to touch up on their skills, this is the best camp for you. The coaching staff teach us the Brotherhood of lacrosse in a non-competitive setting. Even though I've been playing lacrosse for three years, I always learn new skills at camp and how to play various positions.

    Truly helped!

    July 23, 2016: The camp truly helped me become a better lacrosse player. The coaches spent a lot of time getting us to understand the techniques and strategies of the game. Sharpening these skills against other quality players makes this camp one of the best.

    — Robert S. Camper

    July 21, 2015: My son attended your camp for the first time this summer. He had a fabulous time and feels that he has improved his game! Thanks for all your hard work and for providing an opportunity for our southern boys to experience LAX camp! Sincerely, one very happy mom and son.

    Great experience!

    July 21, 2015: I'd like to thank you, for giving my son such a great experience. He came away with improved skill and more confidence in his game. The group of boys from Florida that we traveled with could not stop talking about their week with you, how much they learned and how fun the camp was. I think I can safely say you did a great job with our boys from Jupiter, Florida.
