I would like to attend this camp again because the coaches were really cool and helped me improve my technique. One of the coaches gave me a private lesson every day.

My son had so much fun at camp this year. All he has been talking about is coming back next year and reuniting with the friends he made.

reviews-10 Jeff C. - Parent

My son loved this camp so much there were days he did not want to go home. He made so many friends at camp. He can not wait for his season to start again in the fall.

reviews-10 Justin P. – Camper

My time at camp was so much fun. I’ve been to other lacrosse camps but the GameBreaker camp was by far the best one. The coaches were very helpful and knowledgeable about lacrosse which made the drills very productive. I learned a whole lot that I can transfer to my game this upcoming season.

reviews-10 Marissa G. – Mom

I sent my son to camp for a week this summer and it was his highlight of the summer. He was so happy to be playing lacrosse with all his friends all week. Next summer we will have to look into sending him for multiple weeks. He had a blast!

reviews-10 T.J. M. – Camper

I was trying to learn how to play midfield for this upcoming season after playing attack previously. The coaches were very helpful while explaining the positional responsibilities as well as what to do in certain parts of the game. My biggest area of question was what to do in transition defense since I was rarely in that position and the coaches helped answer all of my questions.

reviews-10 Jeremy L. – Dad

I wanted my son to practice being more aggressive on the field especially around loose balls. Typically he would hang back and wait for a teammate to get the ball and look for an outlet pass. I mentioned this to the coaches on day 1 and by the final day scrimmage I noticed that he was around the back more and doing some of the dirty work. I appreciate all you guys do for the campers, see you next summer!

reviews-10 Carl G. – Camper

I started out as just a half day camper, but by day 2 I made my mom switch me to full day I was having too much fun to leave early. I learned a lot at camp and really liked scrimmaging in the afternoon. That was my favorite part about camp.

reviews-10 Barry W. – Dad

I was very pleased with how well this camp ran. The check-in process on the first day went extremely quick. The camp staff was great and it greatly added to my son having such a great time at camp.

reviews-10 Trevor P. – Parent

Coach Mike was a very hands-on coach. Instead of having his assistants run practice he was on the field instructing the drills as well. As a parent it was very refreshing to see the director being that involved in the camp. My son got a lot out of camp and Coach Mike was a big factor in that.
