If I had to pick what the best part of camp was, it was meeting new people who liked playing lacrosse as much as I do. The coaches were great teachers and they made learning about lacrosse tons of fun.

We sent our daughter to the GameBreaker camp this summer and she had an unbelievable time. Each day that I went to pick her up she could not stop telling me about all the drills they did that day. I could see how much more she loved playing lacrosse day by day.
