US Lacrosse, the sport’s national governing body, encourages players of all skill levels to register for a U.S. National Team Player Performance Camp scheduled to begin next month. Camps will be held at the following locations:
- July 28-29, 2018: Chicago Gaelic Park, Oak Forest, Ill.
- July 28-29, 2018: Greenwood Park, Glen Allen, Va.
- Aug. 4-5, 2018: Round Rock (Texas) Multipurpose Complex
- Aug. 4-5: Morgan Hill (Calif.) Outdoor Sports Center
- Aug. 20-22: US Lacrosse Headquarters, Sparks, Md.
The camps will feature Lacrosse Athlete Development Model (LADM) aligned curriculum delivered by elite, professional, collegiate, and national team coaches and players. The camps will be based in a fun and player centered environment with a low coach to player ratio, providing maximum personal instruction that focuses on the development and peak performance of each individual athlete with constant participation along the way.
The camps are for players aged 8-18 who have some previous experience playing the sport of lacrosse. This camp is not for designed newcomers to the game.
The camps will be broken into three age groupings on the days of the camp:
- 8-11 year olds (9 a.m. to 11 a.m.)
- 12-14 year olds (12 p.m. to 2 p.m.)
- High School (4 p.m. to 7 p.m.)
The camp held at US Lacrosse Headquarters in Sparks, MD will be held in the evenings.
The registration fee is $200 and includes four hours of instruction (six hours for high school players), Team USA shorts and a Team USA t-shirt. Full lacrosse equipment and US Lacrosse membership is required to participate.
US Lacrosse oversees all aspects of the US. National Teams Program, which includes men’s and women’s teams at the senior and U19 levels and the men’s indoor national team. Since the first world championship in 1967, the U.S. has captured 29 world titles, more than any other country.
All camp registrants will be entered to win either a Team USA Gear Package (IL and TX) or a Team USA VIP Package (CA, MD and VA).
