The staff was very friendly and showed me a lot of new shot techniques. I appreciate all the agility tips and drills the coaches gave me to try out at home.
Coaches were excellent with the younger kids, my 8 year old had a great time.
We heard about this camp through a friend who had nothing but great things to say about it, and just wanted to say how much fun my daughter had here. I too would definitely recommend this camp to any other beginner lacrosse player!
