This camp was very well run and organized. With a large number of participants I was worried that my daughter might get lost in the shuffle but she really got a lot out of her week there. I would recommend this camp to other girls looking to get better at lacrosse.
The staff at this camp were excellent. My daughter came home every day motivated to continue practicing until dark in our yard. Look forward to coming back next year.
I would recommend this camp to any young player who wants to improve her skills. Your staff was top-notch. They really seemed to be great teachers of the game. We look forward to attending again next summer.
