Lacrosse Tips by Dan Coates:
Our goal, at Xcelerate Nike Lacrosse Camps, is to bring out the very best in every player we coach. We focus our energies on building self-confidence and improving skills through innovative drills, position training, small-sided games, and team driven competition. We encourage our campers to work hard, be creative, and have fun! At the end of the camp week, our players leave with a higher lacrosse IQ, an enhanced skill set, new role models, new friends, and a true love of the game.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
By far the best!
July 22, 2018: This was our first year at Xcelerate Nike's Camp. We have have been going to Lacrosse camps for 2yrs and this camp is by far the best. My son felt like he learned new skills and it was a higher caliber of coaching. He’s actually wanting to stay the night next year.
— Carrie C. Parent
Learned New Skills and Had Fun!
August 2, 2018: My son really enjoyed this camp. The staff not only kept the boys engaged - he had fun! One of the few camps that has actually taught him new skills. He wants to go back next year!
— Casey A., Parent
Learned a lot!
July 28, 2017: My son learned a lot overall. The specialty clinic was great for him. The coaches were positive & encuraged him to keep working hard. He came back home to the Oregon Classic Tournament & was able to contribute to his team with a number of goals & assists that helped them to one of the highest finishes for a central oregon team at this tournament - 2nd in their division (7/8th grade). Thank you to all the coaches & staff.
— Mark R. Parent
July 28, 2017: I appreciate that my son felt comfortable enough to go outside his comfort zone. He has always played attack and by the end of the camp he was playing middie and winning face offs! He has never wanted to play middie before, so your coaches must have done a great job encouraging him to do so!
— Russell C. Parent
July 27, 2017: Well done! My son enjoyed his time at camp immersed in lacrosse and learning new skills. I would love to see more age group participants to ensure adequate competition throughout camp. You did a great job of pushing these kids, they eat it up. Keep growing the numbers and growing the sport in the region.
— Roger W. Parent
Can't wait for next season!
August 3, 2016: I dropped off my 11 year old, and had to return home, 250 miles away. I was nervous, but he was too busy to be lonely or homesick. He came back with a new workout routine that he and a coach had talked about, his stick skills have improved, but more than anything he is excited about lacrosse-he went to camp at the conclusion of 6 months straight of lacrosse, he can't wait for next season to start, and I credit the coaches for making him feel cared about.
— Stefan P. Parent
All boxed checked!
July 29, 2016: Amazing camp. Fun coaches. Good food. New friends. Learned things on and off the field. All boxed checked!
— Thomas W. Camper
July 28, 2016: The coaches do a good job with instruction and keeping things moving. Players were not standing around doing nothing, they were participating and getting better! My son came home with new skills that he cannot wait to share with his club team. Thanks for the great instruction and friendly environment.
— Ron B. Parent
August 5, 2015: Thank you. Robert thought the camp was AWESOME, he learned so much!
— Jason K. Parent
August 2, 2015: I want to thank you again for all that Xcelerate has done this summer. Our son has really thrived in the atmosphere of professional coaching and play that you have offered. His quality of play and skill level has increased and he now feels more confident and qualified on the playing field.
— Emma S. Parent
A Superior Experience!
July 30, 2015: Thanks so much for the superior experience you all provided at the recent Xcelerate Lacrosse camp. This was truly well done from check in to check out and our son had a ball. Of particular note was the excellent coaching staff!
— Lisa P. Parent
Blew Away our Expectations!
July 27, 2015: Each session we saw care, professionalism, passion and skill being passed on to the participants...it was really inspiring for the kids and us as well. In particular, your emphasis on teaching individualized skills on a daily basis, positive reward as a teaching philosophy and helping them understand the power of being a team player were especially evident. You deserve to be successful and we look forward to participating in future camps. Thanks!
