Overview

Lacrosse and Leadership Campers will leave camp with better individual lacrosse skills - from stick skills to shooting to defending.

My son attended the Lacrosse and Leadership camp and he had an incredible time. He learned a lot about being a team leader and is bringing what he learned back to his high school team. We hope to see you again next summer.

My son learned so much at the Lacrosse and Leadership camp. He enjoyed both the lacrosse coaching as well as the extracurricular activities. His favorite one was the ropes camp. We plan on sending him back next year. Thank You!

I just wanted to write a short note to say how much my son enjoyed this camp last year. He came away not only with more lax skills but also the leadership piece went a long way with him. You obviously took care in hiring a great staff, and putting together an effective format. In particular my son got a lot out of the speaker sessions. We will recommend this camp to our lax community here in Westport, CT. Thanks so much for a great experience.
