Club Lacrosse & Summer Lacrosse Camps

All the links on our website for lacrosse club programs and the summer lacrosse camps have been updated (links are on left side of page under Association). There are many good clubs and camps available for boys and girls. The best people to ask for information are your coaches and other players that may have participated.

Club lacrosse is available for both boys and girls and is usually for players in grades 5-12. The training is more intense and it is for the player that wants to take his/her game to the next level.

The summer camps available range from beginner to experienced elite players. There are day camps and overnight camps. There is even a summer camp for players as young as 4.

Please take a look at all the lacrosse opportunities available.
