Southwestern University

Southwestern University is located in the heart of Central Texas, in historic Georgetown. The campus sits in close proximity to Austin with its vibrant, innovative and creative culture. Soccer/Lacrosse Fields, on the east side of the campus, serves as outdoor playing fields for men's and women's soccer and men's lacrosse.


We have three sessions per day. A great deal of instruction takes place in the early part of the day, demonstrations and instruction mid-day, and games during the evening session. We also like to throw in a number of ‘fun’ activities like our fastest shot contest, freestyle/skills competition, lax golf, pool time, rec time, and camper vs. coach game.

    No complaints!

    No complaints. Check in was organized and easy. My son felt safe and had fun. He returned a more confident player than when he arrived and, for him, that's something he can really use.  He really enjoyed the "fastest shot", "trick shot", "most accurate shot" competitions. He also liked playing vs. the girls as well as the "nukem" game. Very grateful for this experience and the staff that made it possible. My son had already asked about next year...

    Learned so much!

    My son loved being part of this camp. He enjoyed the dorm life, the food, and all of his new friends. He had plenty of opportunities to work on his skills and gain game experience. We will be back next year for sure!

    Loved camp!

    I (the camper) enjoyed being around the campers and coaches alike. I felt that I was able to improve my skills and had an experience that kept me coming here from 6th grade through 12th!

    Can't wait to return!

    This was my son's second year of camp and he not only thoroughly enjoyed it, but he has indicated that this absolutely helps with his lacrosse skills! Looking forward to next year!

    Highlight of the summer!

    This camp was surely the highlight of my summer! I loved scrimmaging, meeting new kids new, the speed shoot contest, and the competitive environment.

    Well Organized!

    My son learned a lot from the coaching staff to help improve for the upcoming season. He also really enjoyed the friendships he made with his roommates.The camp was well organized and always made sure the kids were where they needed to be.

    Great Camp!

    My son made 8 goals and was able to play a variety of positions as well as brush up on his skills.  He has already asked to go back next year!

    I learned a lot!

    Xcelerate LAX camp is a great experience - lots of opportunities to improve my skills while having fun with a diverse group of players. The instructors provided a challenging environment - I learned a lot!

    One of the best!

    My 14 year old son had a fantastic time at this camp. He has been to many other lacrosse camps but he ranks this as one of the best. He participated in the pre-clinic that was offered for LSM's on check-in day. Having a MLL LSM was extremely important to him and he took away so much from that specialized instruction. We will be returning again next summer! Thanks for a great experience for our son! V.L.

    Until then Xcelerate!

    It's a great time to be away from home with your lax brothers!  I really liked being in the dorms and meeting some cool people.  I already asked my mom if I can go next year, and she said yes! Until then Xcelerate!

    See you next year!

    Just wanted you all to know that Austin had a great time! He was really impressed with the coaches and learned a lot. Thanks for taking the time to spend with these kids. See you next year!

    Great Camp!

    Tyler told us it was the best camp yet for Lacrosse and to my delight he actually admitted that he got a lot out of it, not bad for a kid that is already a competent Lacrosse player and a senior starting attack. We will see you next year!

    Great Investment!

    Your staff truly inspired an abiding love of the sport. My son is a soccer player and a golfer but even though it's not lax season he gets his stick out and throws at least twice a week. Xcelerate really lit the fire. A great investment!

    Thank You!

    Jack said he had the "best time I’ve ever had in my whole life" at your camp----so thank you!!! We’ll definitely have him attend a couple of sessions next year. It was awesome for him in so many ways!!!
