Skyhawks Lacrosse

Lacrosse is one of the oldest team sports in America, started on the East Coast by the Native Americans in the 12th century. Suit up and come find out why it has grown to be one of the fastest growing sports in the country. Lacrosse combines the basic skills used in soccer, basketball, and hockey into one fast paced, high scoring game. Athletes will learn all the fundamentals of stick handling, cradling, passing, and shooting, all in a fun, non-checking environment. Our staff will ensure that campers not only learn the sport of lacrosse, but also important life skills such as respect, teamwork, and discipline. Every athlete will come away with a deep understanding of the game and its traditions.

"My son's Lacrosse coach was excellent ("Coach Pacman"). He was encouraging challenging consistent  and had great rapport with the kids. He would make an excellent teacher."

"The director and coach were excellent.  They were accountable for safety procedures and special circumstances.  This was my daughter's first experience with lacrosse and due to them making it such a positive experience she will probably play.  In addition this was an extremely difficult week with a heat wave  and they were able to maintain the skill instruction and include games/actives that cooled the children down. I dropped them off with no concern about the extreme heat due to the diligence and responsibility of the staff."

"This was my son’s first experience with Lacrosse - didn't know anything about the sport. His coaches were wonderful! They were very organized very friendly and most important knowledgeable about the sport they are so passionate about themselves. They taught my son so much in the 4 days he attended. He had a great time and is even looking forward to joining a league in the future. Thanks for making it a great week for him!"
