DON'T MISS OUT on this "ONE OF A KIND" opportunity to learn from the best College Coaches and Professional Major League Lacrosse Players in the country! *Players and Parents gave awesome reviews from last year's camp, that... it was a GREAT experience! Campers are divided by age and skill level to provide the appropriate learning environment. This camp is for ALL levels of play.

Our Winter Exposure Camp will be the premier destination in the country for lacrosse players looking to take their game to the next level. We will feature TOP D1 Coaches and Professional MLL Players to teach, coach and look for future talent for their rosters. We will emphasize key components for lacrosse excellence which include the spiritual, mental, physical, and tactical parts of the game. Players will learn the pillars of Utah Lacrosse while competing hard, fast, smart, and together. And most importantly...WE WILL HAVE FUN!

3 day camp will focus on fundamentals, higher level skills and strategies for shooting, offensive motion, defensive techniques, face off/goalie strategies and team play. Players are given a numbered reversible and coaches receive a roster with player information provided. Game-like situations and drills will be used to put these techniques into practice.

Train at the beautiful Rising Star Sports Ranch Resort in Mesquite, Nevada. Campers have the option to stay as an overnight or commuter camper and enjoy the benefits of a one of a kind resort! Option for parents to attend and secure hotel reservations as well.
