Registration is open for the La Salle College High boys’ and girls’ summer camps.

La Salle Day Camp
Dates: June 18-22, 2012
Time: 9:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
Ages: Boys 7-16 & Girls 5-13
Fee: $260

La Salle Evening Camp

Dates: June 25-28, 2012
Time: 5:00-8:30 p.m.
Ages: Boys 11-16
Fee: $200

The camps feature one-on-one training, challenging competitions, informative lectures, creative drills, high fidelity video sessions, and first-rate facilities. Each instructional period is tailored with one goal in mind – to make you a better lacrosse player.

During the early days in the week campers receive personal instruction from their “stickwork” group coaches so as to improve the campers’ personal game. Later in the week the camp focus shifts toward team skills as players are placed on a team which will compete by league in the “Camp Tournament.”

Each day after lunch a guest speaker or big-screen video will address the campers. the camp will also have numerous visits by our sponsors, and as always, end our day with the now famous Quickstick camp raffle. We are very proud of our creative coaching activities and honored to teach more than the game of lacrosse. We also focus on the game’s Native American history, which speaks of sincere leadership, basic values, and respect.

We work with campers individually and in small groups according to their age, size, and ability; therefore, no experience is necessary and beginners are most welcome.
