Age Groups     

 

Ages 7-18 are welcome.  Age groups are based on the grade the camper will enter the following school year. The age groups are:

4th grade and under
5th-6th graders
7th-8th graders

9th-12th graders

 Some age groups may be combined depending on enrollment size at each level.

 

Positions                                  

 

This camp provides instruction for every position (attack, middies, defense and goalies).  Goalies will have their own coaches.   

 

Experience   

 

This camp is beneficial for experienced players and beginners. Because the camp is properly staffed the coaching staff can give the attention players of all skill levels deserve. Less experienced players will benefit from the focus on fundamentals. Experienced players will benefit from learning how to perfect their fundamentals from college and national team players and coaches. Perfecting fundamentals is how good players become great players.

 

 

High School Players

 

Most, if not all, of our camps have multiple college coaches that recruit at your local club tournaments.  Rather than seeing you in a club tournament at a distance for a few minutes, our camp allows exposure for 3 full days and an opportunity to get to know your personality, the strengths of your game, your athletic ability, and your work ethic. You will be given the same instruction these coaches provide their college players - your game progresses and you receive recruiting exposure.

 

Coaching Staff

 

-ALL coaches have college or national team playing or coaching experience.

-We assign coaches to stations, not to age groups, ensuring campers will receive instruction from all of our talented coaches vs. just one.

-Concentration on instruction rather than watching/officiating scrimmages: At multiple stations per hour, we teach fundamentals and mechanics and provide drills to take away from camp to perfect these skills on your own.
