Summer Skills Camps

Box-Out Lacrosse Camp, July 1-2 at Yale University’s Reese Stadium with Yale coach Andy Shay and Philly coaches Adam Muller and Todd MacFarlane. The Box-Out Lacrosse camp is designed to introduce field players to box lacrosse in an outdoor setting.. Box-Out Lacrosse Camp, and Box-Out Lacrosse Camp Lite are restricted to 180 players. We will accept no more than 30 players in each box, and we will restrict each division to 30 players. If interest dictates, we may open a second group in one age division. The two day session includes specialized box lacrosse drills and instruction and many small game scenarios as well as actual box lacrosse games. Click here at box-out.com to get more information and to register. The Box-Out Lacrosse Camp Lite is being held July 3. Box-Out Lacrosse Camp Lite is a hyperspeed, abridged version of our two day curriculum. You will be doing the same drills, but you will be getting three total sessions as opposed to six. You may, by all means, sign up for both camps meaning you would get three days total of lacrosse. The curriculum, while somewhat redundant, would be well worth repeating. Tuition includes lunch BUT NOT DINNER as you will have ample time to leave the facility for dinner. We are in negotiations with an on site caterer as well.
Staff: Adam Mueller, National Lacrosse League Coach of the Year in 2008. Todd MacFarlane: Founder Top Notch Training – Southern California’s first box lacrosse training company that catered to Middle, High School, College and Post-Collegiate play. Andy Shay: Head Coach of Yale Lacrosse

NXTsports’ Trashcan Lacrosse summer camps
(for boys aged 7 to 14) at Episcopal Academy, Springside Chestnut Hill Academy, The George School, United Sports Training Center and Westtown School. Trashcan has also added national locations in Hartford, Conn. and North Shore, Park Ridge and Naperville, Ill. The summer skills curriculum is specified to refresh each player’s enthusiasm to play the game of lacrosse and prevent “game drain.” Game drain is prevalent in players burned out from the spring lacrosse season, school year and the grind of getting better every day (GBE). Trashcan Lacrosse Camps and the summer skills curriculum account for the factors that lead to game drain. The Trashcan camp experience integrates a memorable camp experience and the training to build upon the previous spring’s accomplishments. The Trashcan Lacrosse Skill Development Curriculum (SDC) is built around a Play Fast drill book, box infusion, progression drills and the game of Trashcan Lacrosse: the dynamic 2v2 pick-up game that focuses on playing fast and mastering the art of the 2v1. Trashcan’s popularity has skyrocketed by more than doubling in attendance in the past year. To register, visit TrashcanLacrosse.com.
