Outstanding Lacrosse Coaches!

Selected for their fine reputations and their ability to work with young players, our coaches teach at all levels of play. We provide a balance of experienced, senior staff members and enthusiastic college grads. Their credentials are outstanding: All-Americans, Hall of Famers, Coaches of the Year, All World players, and professional box players!

Beyond the Game: an Emphasis on
Sportsmanship & Citizenship

Life lessons beyond lacrosse: Our Camp is committed to teaching lessons beyond the game of lacrosse. Tolerance and respect for others is emphasized during camp. In keeping with the heritage of lacrosse as played by many Native American nations, we want campers to honor the game, their teammates, and their opponents.

Inspirational Speakers: The single (and most anticipated) element of our Camp experience is the featured speaker. Charismatic Chuck Nguyen returns in 2016 to work with the double session players and to speak of lessons learned as a Vietnamese boat refugee, a martial arts expert, and as the grandson of a Vietnamese Buddhist, that have enabled him to effectively confront bullying, exclusion, and discrimination.

In 2013 Kevin Pearce, the charismatic half-pipe snow-boarder, spoke of his journey back from the devastating accident he suffered while training for the 2010 Winter Olympics, and the brain injury hazards associated with sports. Other speakers have been: Diana Nyad, Hall of Fame swimmer and re­nowned TV sports journalist; Sidiki Conde, the irrepressible dancer and drummer; Travis Roy, former Boston U. hockey player; and Carlos Moleda, former Navy SEAL and Ironman champion.

Improve your lacrosse game and have fun!

Round robin tournaments! Coaches assign players to a team in one of three divisions, based on age, size and level of skill. Each division plays with the emphasis on instruction and individual attention. At the end of camp, all players receive a written personal evaluation.

Top-notch lacrosse instruction

All phases of the game covered: offensive and defensive fundamentals, shooting, dodging, ground balls, cutting, one-on-one play, stickwork, and face-offs. We also cover offensive and defensive team concepts, fast breaks, riding and clearing. Goalies are provided extra instruction; individual critiques are offered after each game to improve personal performance.
