This camp was very well run and organized. With a large number of participants I was worried that my daughter might get lost in the shuffle but she really got a lot out of her week there. I would recommend this camp to other girls looking to get better at lacrosse.

My daughter loved her experience with GameBreaker lacrosse camps. She had so much fun I don\'t think she has put down her lacrosse since. I owe you thanks for providing my daughter with such a great time.

reviews-10 Darcy T. - Parent

My daughter was so excited about what she learned at camp. The very next day after camp ended she went straight to the practice field. The coaches instilled the proper work ethic mentality in all of the campers.
