We were blown away with the amount our daughter took away from what the coaches taught her. She has been improving her game ever since she returned home from camp.

The Hun School camp was excellent. My daughter came to camp with a few of her teammates and they had a blast. Hope to bring along of few more girls next summer.

GameBreaker definitely knows how to run an excellent lacrosse camp. They did not just roll a ball out and let the kids play. Throughout the entire time the coaches were engaging with the players, instructing all different aspects of the game. My daughter has become a much more well-rounded player after attending this camp.

reviews-10 Dani C. - Parent

This is a great example of what a camp should be. My daughter not only learned better lacrosse skills from great coaches but also said she had such fun. She is already talking about coming back next year. Good job GameBreaker.
