    He Had a Blast!

    July 25, 2019: My son had an absolute blast. He loved the competitive games and drills. He also loved having the pool for down time and meeting new friends with the same interests. I as a parent loved the app. I knew where and what he was doing at all times. I loved seeing the videos of what they were doing. He is already wanting me to sign him up for next year. Thank you so much!

    Learned so much!

    June 21, 2017: My son learned so much at this camp. He had a great experience on and off the field. He liked free time to bond with other players. He only had positive things to say about the staff including that everyone was very knowledgeable and organized. He asked to come back next year before we made it to the car!

    I would highly recommend this camp!

    June 28, 2016: Great camp for your son or daughter to improve his/her lacrosse skills! My son had a great time, made new friends, and learned a lot. I appreciate the fact that the camp also rewards kids for their character on and off the field, as well as their skills. I would highly recommend this camp for those wanting to improve their game.

    Thanks for Everything!

    June 22, 2015: I want to thank you and the coaches for doing such a great job. John has really enjoyed Xcelerate. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of coaches; they were positive and very motivating and helped John improve his lacrosse skills. He now loves going to practices and spending more time playing lacrosse. Thanks for everything.

    Incredible Value!

    June 19, 2015: This camp was first rate and I feel like when you compare it to all of the day camps we send our children to throughout the summer this was an incredible value for the money spent given it was overnight and included meals! Our son enjoyed himself and fell head over heals for lacrosse during his week at camp!
