Directing camp this summer is Wynne Lobel. Coach Lobel spent ten years at the head women's lacrosse coach at Pacific University (OR).View Wynne Lobel's Bio ⟩
Hired in 2005 to build the new program, with the first season taking place in 2007, Lobel has seen improvement from her charges almost every year. The program earned its first victory on Mar. 25, 2007, beating Fontbonne 12-11. Her 2010 program registered a 6-5 record, the first winning record in the Boxers’ four years. The win ledger included a sweep of Northwest rival Linfield and the program’s first win over the established program at Puget Sound.
For her efforts on and off the field, her peers in the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) elected Lobel as the 2007 NCAA Division III West Region Coach of the Year. It is the second time in her career that she has earned regional coach of the year distinction.
During the summer of 2009, Lobel served as a coach for the Danish National Women’s Lacrosse Team at the Women’s Lacrosse World Cup in Prague, Czech Republic. She led the team to two wins in the tournament over South Korea.
Prior to her arrival at Pacific, Lobel was the head women’s lacrosse coach for four seasons at Plymouth State College in Plymouth, N.H., leading each of her teams to Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) championship each season. She led the Panthers to their first NCAA Division III national tournament appearance in 2001 and led the Panthers to the second round in their 2004 campaign.
In 2001, Lobel was recognized as the New England Women’s Lacrosse Association (NEWLA) Coach of the Year, and earned Little East Coach of the Year in 2002, 2003 and 2004. In addition, she was named the NCAA Division III New England Region Coach of the Year in 2004.
After leaving Plymouth State in 2004, Lobel created and directed i-lacrosse, a summer program that included summer camps and international lacrosse playing opportunities for women.
Lobel serves as a coach’s education program facilitator for U.S. Lacrosse and a field director for Player’s Choice Lacrosse Camps in Massachusetts. Lobel currently serves on the NCAA Division III Championships West Region Selection Committee.
Prior to Plymouth State, Lobel spent one season as an assistant coach at Boston College and spent the 1998-99 season as an assistant women’s lacrosse and field hockey coach at Wheaton College in Norton, Mass. She played four seasons of lacrosse and field hockey at Ithaca College in New York. She was selected as Ithaca’s field hockey MVP in 1992.
Lobel earned a bachelor’s degree in outdoor recreation and education from Ithaca in 1993, and earned her master’s in elementary education from Lesley College (Mass.) in 2002. Avid about anything outdoors, Lobel has completed a bicycle tour of New Zealand and Australia and ran the 100th Boston Marathon in 1996. She is the daughter of longtime legendary Boston sportscaster Bob Lobel.

Head coach Kate Robinson was hired in the summer of 2014 to lead Whitman College into its first varsity women’s lacrosse season. That genesis brought along a successful club program into NCAA Division III competition as the fifth team to compete in the sport within the Northwest Conference.
Robinson came to Whitman in 2014 after spending the previous two years as an assistant coach at the Stevens Institute of Technology (N.J.). Prior to her stint at Stevens she served one year as a graduate assistant coach for her alma mater, The Catholic University of America, where as an undergraduate the three-time All-America lacrosse honoree also excelled on the basketball court.
Robinson stepped across the sideline from the playing field at Catholic to begin her coaching career immediately after a stellar career with the Cardinals. Catholic's career leader in goals (268) and points (383), Robinson also remains the single-season pace-setter in goals (91, in 2008), assists (44, in 2009), points (121, in 2009) and caused turnovers (45, in 2009). Beyond her three all-American selections (2008, 2009, 2011), other honors earned while representing the Cardinals include the Landmark player of the year (2008, 2009), the Womenslacrosse.com midfielder of the year (2009), the D-III preseason player of the year as announced by Lacrosse Magazine (2010), and being named to the watch list for the 2010 Tewaaraton Trophy which is the annual award presented to the women's lacrosse player of the year from all divisions (I, II and III).

Oregon State University
Oregon State is located in Corvallis, a vibrant college town of 55,000 in the heart of Western Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Corvallis consistently ranks among the best and safest cities to live in the U.S., as well as among the most environmentally responsible. The 400-acre main campus in Corvallis includes a Historic District, making Oregon State one of only a handful of U.S. university campuses listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The district includes such icons as Weatherford Hall, the Memorial Union and Benton Hall, the oldest building on campus.
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.

Opened up a world of possibilities!
As a player from a small town, my opportunities for lacrosse are limited. This camp, however, opened up a world of possibilities. Not only did I improve my game play, but I had the chance to meet college coaches and learn about the recruiting process. I would highly recommend this camp to players of ALL skill levels.

My experience at the Xcelerate lacrosse camp was fun and challenging; I loved playing in an inviting atmosphere with others who were working as hard as I was at improving their gameplay.

It was a really good Lacrosse experience!
My daughter had a great stay at Xcelerate’s Oregon camp this summer. She said she learned a lot and came back more confident in her skills with the added coaching. It was a really good Lacrosse experience!

For middle school girl lacrosse player, the Nike camp was exactly what she needed! My daughter had a great time. The only complaint was how tired she was at the end of each day instruction. Camp was great, we have recommended this camp to her fellow team member back in home. Thank you!!
