Men's Lacrosse Camps
College lacrosse camps are an important investment for serious men’s lacrosse players who are interested in competing at the next level. This list should help you find lacrosse camps near you that will help you connect with college coaches.
Choosing Between Recruiting and Instructional Camps
There are two major types of high school boys lacrosse camps: recruiting camps, and instructional camps.
- A recruiting camp will “roll the balls out” to help high school lacrosse players showcase how competitive they are against the top peers in the area where they are competing. Some prestigious lacrosse camps draw large numbers of college coaches who will be looking at your skills, but not all include an instructional component.
- Instructional lacrosse camps will help high school lacrosse players develop their skills through drills. Check to see who is actually coaching at the camp; it could be a college coach who will give you instruction you wouldn’t typically receive from a high school or even club coach. On the other hand, you should be careful that a qualified coach will actually be involved in the day-to-day instruction of the men’s lacrosse camp. You should carefully reflect on your level of play and how an instructional lacrosse camp can help you improve.
Tournaments are another great option for lacrosse players serious about competing at the next level because college coaches are able to see more men’s lacrosse players at the same time.
We hope this list is a starting point for you to decide which college lacrosse camp is right for you. Be sure to do your homework to decide if a particular camp is right for you and worth the investment.
