Upper River Lax announces 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.Upper-River-lax

As with all Upper River Sports programs, Skills Week will boast a low coach-camper ratio and lots of practice time to ensure individualized attention for every athlete. 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. Coach Brian Santoleri, who has worked with Harriton High School and Ashbee Lacrosse locally, had this to say: “I am very excited to join the Upper River staff with the goal of development of all aspects of the game of lacrosse. Upper River is on the rise as a cutting edge training program and focuses on individual performance. Our team is committed to preparing our athletes for the next level of competition.”

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.
