Summit Lacrosse Camp
Summit Lacrosse Camp offers the opportunity for intermediate and experienced boys and girls players to bring their game to the next level. The coaches will help teach participants techniques and strategies on advancing their skills, what an official is looking for, and also what college coaches will be looking for in their player’s skill, work ethic, and attitude. Campers will find position specific training for offense, defense, and goalie! Throughout the camp there will be fun games, activities, and opportunities to win awards!!
