How to Pick a Lacrosse Camp

Learn how to pick a lacrosse camp from the pros at Game Breaker Lacrosse Camps in this Howcast video.


Hi, I'm Taylor Nissi, Director of Operations for Game Breaker Lacrosse. I'm here today with Nick Schmidt who's one of our great regional directors. Please visit our website There are several different types of lacrosse camps. First, you have your basic, instructional camp, and this is very broad range and great for beginners. Then you have position specific camps. Again, these have a focus on instruction at that specific position, but they might not have all of the positions included at camp. For example, you might have a defensive camp, an offensive camp, or a goalie camp. Then the last type of camp is a recruiting camp. These camps are focused strictly on colleges coming and watching players play and then therefore recruiting them to play for them in college. Another important factor is the quality of the coaching. It's great when there's opportunities to work with coaches you might not have regular exposure to throughout your youth in high school lacrosse. It's also important to think about the ratio of coaches to campers. It's great to have a low ratio so that you get the individual attention you need to help you develop your skills. It can also help you learn more than the basic curriculum that the coaches and the players have outlined for that camp. Some camps also offer off the field things, such as talks from coaches, nutrition advice, ways to train, and video analysis, or more specific one on one drills. These are all important factors to consider when attending a camp.
