Made me a better player!

This camp truly made me a better player. Every drill and talk had meaning behind it, which made camp that much more special. Working with these caoches was not only fun, but a chance to see what I need to do to improve and be serious about the sport. Going to this camp has made me value the off season that much more and shown me that I need to put in the work to get the results. Thank you for making me serious about the game!

Thanks for a great camp!

My son learned many new skills during the Xcelerate Nike lacrosse camp, and he had a great time while doing so. He is already looking forward to next year's camp, and we've been telling all of our lacrosse friends about it. Thanks for a great camp!
