Welcome to the Summer 2021 970 Lax Summer Camp page. We are excited to announce that we will be holding 3 summer camps throughout this summer break. The dates of these camps are as follows:
Session 1: June 14 - June 18
Session 2: July 26 - July 30
Session 3: August 9 - August 13
Each group will have US Lacrosse certified coaches that have the appropriate skills and experience to make sure that your camper gets the most out of their experience and comes out feeling more comfortable with the sport than before they started.
Age groups are determined by the grade that your child was in during the Spring 2021 School Year, although ability and years experience will be taken into consideration for placement. Each group will have certain focuses each week, depending on the experience and ability of the campers, that will be completed through a variety of drills. Please see below for a daily schedule as well as what each group's focus will be during the camps.
Camps will be 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, starting at 8:30 am and ending at 12:30 pm. 970 Lax Summer Camps 2021 will be at Twin Silos Park in Fort Collins, Colorado.
So what does your camper need? Campers should come ready for practice with all of their gear, cup, mouth guard, water and a snack.
Now everyone's favorite bit, price. This camp will cost $225 for the week and also includes a 970 Lax Camp Pinnie.
