reviews-10 John Pennington- Coach

Some of my players attended this camp and I can definitely see a difference in their game. Everyone who went to camp improved in all areas of their game ranging from stick control to face off technique.

reviews-10 Florentino Graham. -Parent

My son loved the fact that he got a lot of individual time with the coaches which really improved his face off technique. He also saw increases in his shot speed and accuracy.

reviews-10 Melvin Snow. -Parent

I was unsure about sending my boys to a lacrosse camp because they were inexperienced players. The coaches do a great job incorporating players of all ability levels, making everyone feel comfortable. I will recommend this camp to any mom and dad looking for a wonderful camp with excellent coaching.
