Both of us agree that our 12-year-old son has really improved his lacrosse skills. My son said he loved competitive nature of the camp and his favorite part of camp was scrimmaging with the coaches

I had a great summer because of GameBreaker Lacrosse. I have been to a few others before, but this camp was by far the best! I had such a great time. The coaches were amazing and the other guys I met were super cool.
