Summer recruiting camps

Philly Boys Showcase Camp by NXT at Saint Joseph’s University, Session II for 2018s and 2019 on July 27-29 at St. Joseph’s University. The Philly Boys Showcase Camp was started by coaches who genuinely want to help high school players achieve their college lacrosse goals by educating them on all aspects of the college process. Two coaches who embody this philosophy and the co-directors of the Boys Philly Showcase Camp – Peter Lawrence (University of Hartford), and Taylor Wray (St. Joseph’s University). Showcase lacrosse campers leave better educated not just on the lacrosse field, but also better educated about the college recruitment process, NCAA rules, strength training, and nutrition. Campers literally get to experience a couple days in the life of a college lacrosse player.Boys-summer-camps22

Upper River Lax Skills Week, a great opportunity for those just discovering the sport or discovering they love the sport. Upper River Lax is offering yet another opportunity for young lacrosse players on the Main Line. From July 13th – 17th at the Phelps School in Malvern, the experienced coaches at URLax will be running a camp for boys aged 10 to 16.

This attention to detail is critical for new players, so that bad habits can be corrected early and good technique is committed to muscle memory from the start.
Camp will run from 9am to 4pm, with a break for lunch. Upper River Sports takes a better approach to athletic growth. Coaches repeat the mantra of “process, not product. Years of experience and scientific stufy show that focusing on the process of getting better (instead of just the outcome of a game) creates a better environment for growth and enjoyment – while also leading to a better mastery of the sport.
