Team NorCal Summer Day Camps 2017 for Boys and Girls

Boys Advanced Camp Director - Greg Hollingshead, Coach Santa Clara University

Girls Camp Director, Colleen Niklaus

Each summer our camps set new records for attendance.  We are by far the biggest and most vibrant Day Camp in the South Bay.  This, our 9th year, should be no different.  Tired of camps with big promises and no individual instruction?  Our Camps are loaded with NCAA Experienced Counselors and College Coaches whose primary focus is helping you improve your skills and get to the next level.  The coaches from Team NorCal will help you make this a summer to remember. Over half of the High School players named All American and Academic All American by US Lacrosse in Northern California in 2013 through 2016 came from the Team NorCal program.  We will have several well known college players and coaches participating in this years camps. 

Team NorCal is the oldest and largest elite lacrosse development program in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Now in our 10th year, over 400 boys and girls across 14 teams at Youth. Middle School and High School levels will represent Northern California in local, regional and national lacrosse tournaments in 2017.

NEW - Advanced Training Camps 2017 for Boys

This year we are adding to our popular camp series a new kind of camp - Advanced Training Camps.  These camp experiences are designed for people who meet at least one (or more) of these qualifications:

  1.        Players currently playing travel ball
  2.        Players on the equivalent of an A or Bv team on their spring team
  3.        Players with 2+ years of experience, or well above average athletic ability and success in other sports

The purpose of these camps is to focus very intensively on skill development to upgrade the quality of your play.  With both drill and full field scrimmage formats, you will learn from our best coaches and teachers, and compete against the best players in the area.  These camps will be led by Greg Hollingshead, accompanied by other D1, D3, and MCLA college players and high school an college coaches.   

While still very much a fun experience, we will challenge you and work you harder than you have ever worked before at a summer camp.
