  • Improved fundamental skills on both offense and defense 
  • Specific, individual, positional coaching & instruction
  • A clear picture of their individual strengths and weaknesses, so they know exactly what to work on post-camp that will help elevate their game at the youth level or prepare them for the High School game. 
  • A 3 step improvement plan for them to implement over the fall to prep them for the 2019 season
  • A greater lacrosse IQ 
  • A better understanding of teamwork and game strategy that will help them become better team players
