The Surge “Full Circle” Lacrosse Camp
New for summer, 2021
A three-day camp experience designed around 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 or high school Varsity!
Along with Paul Thomas, a special Surge guest coach, Ted Garber, will oversee all camp activity and format. Coach Garber is legendary in New England boys and professional teams lacrosse coaching.
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. There is also an emphasis on decision-making and recognition skills in game situations. Through the use of a progressive format beginning with individual and small group tactical work and instruction – 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.

“Ted Garber may be the most caring, knowledgeable and innovative lacrosse coach ever when it comes to player development. He creates highly efficient drills that maximize a player’s skills and recognition abilities in game-like situations. Any high school or travel team would improve dramatically by having Ted run a clinic or practice”
— Stephen Connolly, New England Hall of Fame Lacrosse Coach

As a courtesy to newer players, you may rent gear. For $85 you will receive a helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads and gloves. You will need to provide your own tethered mouth guard, cleats with ankle support, jock and stick – which are also required (see blog post on how to buy a stick). You will need to return the gear, cleaned in the ways we outline, at the end of season.
Select the Rental Equipment option on the programs tab as you register. Should you not see this option, it means we’ve reached our max on rentals for your division.
Should you not see a registration option for your division, it means that group has reached its limit. So be sure to sign up on the wait list. We strive to place as many players onto teams as possible each season, and you will be notified via email once that transpires.
The fall schedule will be posted shortly.
