Registration is open for the Advanced Placement Camp, which provides girls in the Philadelphia area with the opportunity to learn from the best players and coaches in the game in an extremely professional and competitive environment.
The camp is staffed by current NCAA Division 1 coaches, World Team members, former NCAA All-Americans, and numerous women that were finalists for the Tewaaraton Award (given to the best player in NCAA lacrosse).
The camp is open to advanced players in the following classes: 2021, 2020, and 2019. Camp will be held at The Shipley School on 7/20-22 and will run from 9am – 3pm. Cost is $350 for all three sessions or $140 per session.
AP Camp is a place for dedicated players to learn from the best and showcase their talents. Attendees will learn skills during scripted educational segments, participate in advanced drills, and compete during scrimmage segments. Players will be separated by age during competitive segments and will participate in position specific training.
AP Camp attendees will be provided with the guidance and education that will help them gain an understanding of what is necessary to take their game to the next level. The nine current NCAA Division 1 coaches on staff will engage with girls on a personal level to ensure that all attendees leave camp each day having become a better player with an enhanced understanding of how to reach their goals.
Colleen Magarity, AP Camp Director, is excited to bring some of the best payers and coaches in the world to her hometown to educate players. Magarity, a two-time All American at Germantown Academy, honed her skills in the Philadelphia area prior to winning multiple National Championships at Northwestern, competing for Team USA, and coaching at the University of Colorado.
The coaches joining Magarity on the AP Camp staff are: Hannah Neilsen (arguable the best player in women’s lacrosse history and University of Colorado asst. coach), Crysti Foote-Stratton (Team Canada member and Louisville asst. coach), Brooke Matthews (Penn State asst. coach), Maggie Tamasitas (Rutgers asst. coach), Hillary Fratzke (William & Mary head coach), Kate Gallagher (St. Joseph’s asst. coach), Nora McGurkin (La Salle asst. coach), Amy Cross (Syracuse alum), and Brianne LoManto (UMASS asst coach).
