Girls Lacrosse and Leadership Camp
July 30 - August 3, 2017
Extended Day $595.00
We are bringing our Girls Lacrosse & Leadership Camp to Colorado this summer. This camp has been designed to address a void in the growing lacrosse community. While players are spending time playing for sometimes multiple teams, there appears to be a lack of leadership and team building development. We have found the perfect facility for this camp—Colorado Mountain College. This locale offers us the best of both worlds—a top-notch training environment with several athletic fields, along with a traditional camp setting.
At camp, we will help campers learn about being part of something – a team or cause – bigger than themselves. The camp will combine outstanding lacrosse instruction with off-field camp activities designed to promote teamwork and teach leadership skills. At the end of camp, we want all campers to not only be better lacrosse players, but also recognize how as leaders they can be more valuable to their team, their school, and their community.
We look forward to the opportunity to meet and work with you this summer.
About Our Coaches
Kim Williams, who has known nothing but success over her nine years as a college player, assistant coach and head coach in women's lacrosse, takes over the reins of Wesleyan women's lacrosse for the 2016 campaign. Williams becomes the eighth head coach for the Cardinals over their 40-year varsity history. She began her tenure on July 1, 2015 as an adjunct assistant professor of physical education and head women's lacrosse coach at Wesleyan.
Williams comes to Wesleyan after two seasons as head coach at Stockton University in New Jersey, three seasons as an assistant coach at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, and four seasons as a stellar competitor at C.W. Post University in Brookville, N.Y. Bringing the Ospreys at Stockton into their first varsity season in 2014, Williams met with immediate success behind a 16-4 victory over Notre Dame (Md.) in the team's varsity opener. Stockton posted a 10-5 record in 2014 and featured the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) Rookie of the Year. The Ospreys followed up with a 10-6 mark in 2015 while boasting the NJAC Goaltender of the Year. Thus Kim brings a career 20-11 record as a head coach with her to Wesleyan.
Williams began her college coaching career with the Mules of Colby from 2011-13 as Colby qualified for the NCAA Division III tournament each year and amassed a brilliant 43-13 overall record, including a 22-7 mark against New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) rivals. The NESCAC is the top Division III women's lacrosse conference in the nation and had eight teams ranked among the top-20 nationally in the final 2015 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Association (IWLCA) poll, led by NCAA tournament runner-up Trinity College. No other conference had more than three teams in the top-20.
After a tremendous high-school playing career at West Morris (N.J.), where she earned third-team all-state recognition, Williams played four seasons at C.W. Post, helping Post reach the NCAA Division II tournament each year with one title and three other appearances in the Final Four. She was recognized as an IWLCA All-American three times along with IWLCA Division II Defender of the Year accolades as a sophomore and Womenslacrosse.com Division II Midfielder of the Year recognition as a senior. She also earned first-team all-conference accolades three times.
