Your camp staff was amazing. My son was new to lacrosse and came home from the camp absolutely loving the game. He now has some basic skills and a passion for the game that he is looking forward to taking to the next level.
I would like to attend this camp again because the coaches were really cool and helped me improve my technique. One of the coaches gave me a private lesson every day.
My son loved the instructors at this camp. They really took the time to help him take his game to the next level. We would recommend this camp to other aspiring lacrosse players!
