The Skills Camps are aimed all players between the ages of 7 (tyke) & 16 (Midget) 

Each one day camp will offer separate instruction:

  • for new players needing the basic skills to play box lacrosse;
  • for returning players interested in taking their game to the next level.


Attendees will be divided into groups according to skill, size, gender and age level, with each group consisting of 10-15 players.


Minimum equipment requirement is running shoes, shorts or track pants, lacrosse stick, helmet w/ mask (hockey) and gloves.  There will be some scrimmage activity and checking instruction so full protective lacrosse equipment including kidney, arm and shoulder pads are strongly recommended! Helmets must be worn on the floor at ALL TIMES.


The main camps are limited to 50 players each day and early registration will guarantee a spot. 


Snacks will consist of fruits, bagels, crackers and juice.

All participants bring their own water in a labelled container.
