While watching my son play since the beginning of camp, I can see a vast improvement in his game. The coaches definitely did a great job. My son loved the camp and I would recommend this camp without any hesitation.
We signed up for this camp at the last minute and are so glad we did. My son can’t stop talking about how much fun he had playing lacrosse. The coaches told him he was a natural!
This camp provides a good balance of lacrosse skill development and fun. My son really enjoyed his week at GameBreaker and I can see the improvement in his skills. We look forward to sending our younger son next year.
