"Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it." -George Halas
TLM Camp overview- Camp begins at 9 am each day where the players are guided through active dynamic stretches by our experienced camp counselors who have played at the college level. A typical day starts with stick work and from there the players are put into age appropriate groups. Within their groups they will be taught techniques and skills that are developmentally appropriate to help them succeed. We play various "camp games" throughout the week such as Sharks and Minnows, Hunger Games, Gladiators, and other small sided games.
New for 2020, Little Laxers, players entering grades 1 and 2 in the Fall of 2020. Our youngest players in camp will have their own camp counselor for the week and they will be working on the basics of Lacrosse such as scooping, catching, passing and cradling. Most teaching will be done through game play.
