July 25, 26 & 27: A three-day camp experience designed for youth players wanting to take their game to the next level. “Full Circle” because it will be led by Surge coaches and Surge alumni now playing DI, DII, DIII or Club ball in college and local high school varsity lax players!

The sessions will focus on all the fundamentals as well as more advanced LAX IQ and play nuances that players need to excel in both individual and team scenarios. Also emphasized: Decision making and key recognition skills in game situations. The sessions will be divided into two groups: Beginner and Experienced players for optimum training. Through the use of a progressive format (beginning with individual and small-group tactical work and instruction and continuing to half-field and full-field play progressions) participants will work individually and as a group in this unique, multi-faceted lacrosse lesson format.

Coaches will focus on Attack, Midfield and Face-offs, Goalie, and Defense. Specifically:
