Camp Director Allison Daley
Directing camp this summer is Allison Daley. Coach Daley is in her first season as Head Coach of D1's Canisius College.View Allison's Bio ⟩
Daley returns to Canisius College after serving as an assistant coach at Binghamton University from 2013-16. She spent the 2017 season working with Delaware, before returning to Binghamton in the offseason.
At Binghamton, Daley mentored 11 all-conference honorees and also had a major role in leading the Bearcats to the program's lowest goals against average in 2016. Additionally, Binghamton midfielder Rebecca Golderman, one of Daley's recruits, became the program's first-ever America East Rookie of the Year.
In her stint at Delaware, the former Canisius goaltender coached the Blue Hens to nine victories and a berth in the 2017 CAA semifinals. Delaware finished the 2017 season ranked seventh nationally in goals against average.
Prior to joining the coaching staff at Binghamton, Daley was Canisius' assistant coach and recruiting coordinator.
She helped build a Griffs program that won back-to-back MAAC titles and advanced to the NCAA tournament in each of her two seasons. Daley recruited and coached the 2012 MAAC Defensive Player of the Year and coached seven all-conference honorees.
As a player Daley, was an elite goaltender and team captain who enjoyed a decorated playing career. She was a member of Canada's U19 National Team before embarking on a successful four-year undergraduate career on Main Street.
She was the MAAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2010 and earned MAAC Tournament MVP honors after leading the Griffs to their first conference title in 2011.
Daley was a three-time All-MAAC selection and became the program's first IWLCA all-region pick following her senior season with the program. The Blue and Gold alumna twice earned all-tournament team honors, and graduated holding school records for career saves (662) and goals against average (11.66).
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 play hard, be creative, and have fun! At the end of the week, our campers leave with a higher lacrosse IQ, an enhanced skill set, new role models, new friends, and a true love of the game.
