Camp this summer was awesome! I had so much fun playing with the friends I made.

reviews-10 Andy B. - Dad

We have seen a noticeable improvement in our son’s lacrosse skills since attending camp. The training, coaches and level of competition were very good. My son loved the scrimmaging with the coaches. I would recommend this camp.

reviews-10 Sean T. - Camper

This was my second year at the camp and I had a blast. Next year I am going to make my mom and dad send me to more than week of camp.

reviews-10 David G. – Camper

I really enjoyed my time at camp this summer. Coach Parisi used fun games to make simple drills like picking up groundballs and throwing and catching more interesting. I can’t wait to come back next year.

reviews-10 Maggie N. – Mom

My son had so much fun the first day he made me switch him from a half-day camper to full-day camper for the rest of the week. After session I, we made sure to sign him up for the other summer sessions. Big thumbs up to the entire coaching staff.

reviews-10 Tyler P. – Camper

My favorite part of camp was the afternoon scrimmages. I got to play against my friends and try to prove I was the better than them. I scored two goals in the final scrimmage and my team won.

reviews-10 Coach T.

I sent a few of my youth players to camp this summer and I could tell Coach Parisi knew what he was talking about. My kids got a lot out of camp and they keep asking me when they could go back to camp.

reviews-10 Richie T. – Camper

I liked everything about camp. One of my favorite parts was the fastest shot competition we had on the final day of camp. I had the fastest shot and won a GameBreaker Gear Bag and I bring it to every practice.

reviews-10 Wendy T. – Parent

My son went to camp as a goalie and I was very pleased with the amount of training he received. The coaches were great and showed him how he could improve his stance and technique to be in better position to make more saves.

reviews-10 Jonathan L. – Camper

I wanted to work on my face off technique at camp and the coaches were very responsive to that. One of the coaches would often help me in between drills go over some face off moves he used while he played in college. I learned a lot from the coaches and can’t wait for fall ball.
