Really proud of my son for trying a new sport. Turns out he loved the camp thanks to the coaching staff and now he cannot stop telling me how much want to play during the season.

It\'s hard to find a summer camp that my boys actually want to go to for more than one week. By the second day of camp, my two boys were waking me up in the morning ready to leave at 7 am!! I could tell they had a lot of fun and loved the camp.

reviews-10 Laura Walker. -Parent

All the coaches clearly played at a very high level and are great at creating a fun and positive environment for my kids. Great experience for my two boys and I would definitely recommend this camp to all lax parents.
