Thank you!

Just a quick note to let you know how impressed we are with our son’s Xcelerate experience so far. Watching the first 2 sessions and listening to the coaches was exactly the type of thing I hoped my son would be involved in. The coaches were always positive, always nice and explained what they wanted in a way my child really responds to. He came off the field enthused, ready to work on what he was taught and looking forward to the next session.

Positive experience!

He LOVED the camp! He just began his interest in lacrosse this spring and this was a wonderful experience for him. He was eager to share everything about camp on our way home, and he is already looking forward to attending again next year. Please accept my thanks to you and your entire staff for creating such a positive experience for my son.
