  • 5/5.
Truly helped!

The camp truly helped me become a better lacrosse player. The coaches spent a lot of time getting us to understand the techniques and strategies of the game. Sharpening these skills against other quality players makes this camp one of the best.

Great experience!

I'd like to thank you, for giving my son such a great experience. He came away with improved skill and more confidence in his game. The group of boys from Florida that we traveled with could not stop talking about their week with you, how much they learned and how fun the camp was. I think I can safely say you did a great job with our boys from Jupiter, Florida.
