Age groups are divided by attack & middies in one group and defense in another group. Goalies will have their own coaches. All coaches have college playing or coaching experience. It is for this reason we assign coaches to stations, not to age groups. This ensures campers will receive instruction from all of our talented coaches vs. just one. The concentration is on instruction rather than watching/officiating scrimmages: At multiple stations per hour, we teach fundamentals and mechanics and provide drills to take away from camp to perfect these skills on your own. This camp is beneficial for experienced players and beginners. Because the camp is properly staffed the coaching staff can give the attention players of all skill levels deserve. Most, if not all, of our camps have multiple college coaches who recruit at your club tournaments. $100 Early Sign Up Discount! Promo Code “EARLYBIRD”. Expires March 31st! Click here to register.
