Depending where you live, lacrosse may be already be a popular sport or it may be a sports program that is just getting off the ground and gaining popularity. So, whether your camper wants to build on his/her lax skills or learn anew, the great thing is that Maine Camp Experience camps offer great lacrosse programs and instruction on large fields at every level.
Maine Camps’ lacrosse instructors are seasoned players and coaches. Many have played or currently play or coach on college teams and leagues, and some are even former Team USA players. They teach the fundamental skills (throwing, catching, cradling) and provide instruction about positions and rules of the game. Coaching evolves to more advanced play including shooting, scoring, and checking, and offensive and defensive strategies. Maine Camp lacrosse coaches also provide lessons and guidance for good sportsmanship and teamwork.
Campers can play in small or large groups are even get one-on-one instruction. Maine Camps have regularly scheduled lacrosse instruction and some also offer specialty clinics. Campers play lacrosse in games against each other at their camp and also get the opportunity to play lacrosse games against teams from other Maine Camps. Intercamp games and tournaments are always exciting and fun.
Getting to play lacrosse at Maine Camps really gives campers a leg up. They get to enjoy a new sport (or one they already know and love) while at camp and they get to take the skills back with them to excel in programs in their hometowns. It’s a win-win!
