Building on the foundational curriculum provided in our one-week lacrosse camps, the progressive IMG Academy Lacrosse 3-Week Summer Lacrosse Camps allow players to experience three weeks of professional-quality lacrosse training. IMG Academy coaches create an intensive but fun learning environment of competition that enables players at every lacrosse summer camp to build confidence on and off the lacrosse field. Our most popular summer lacrosse camp - a progressive, intensive experience that will help prepare you for the upcoming season!
Players that participate in 3-Week Summer Lacrosse Camps will learn/experience:
- Building a solid foundation in the individual skills and techniques of lacrosse. This includes stick-handling, cradling, stick protection, dodging, shooting, passing and catching in tight situations, and ground ball technique. These skills and techniques will be taught specific to each position and emphasized in both the field and indoor (box) settings.
- A player-centric capacity to make read-and-react decisions on-and off-the-ball. Concepts will be developed using traditional lacrosse offensive and defensive sets, as applied in the field and indoor (box) settings, as well as applications for emerging and advanced innovative concepts.
- A capacity to capitalize on transition, unsettled and uneven situations using a high-pressure, up-tempo mindset and approach.
The 3-Week Summer Lacrosse Camps are the most popular with a progressive, intensive experience that will help prepare you for the upcoming season or a tournament! In addition to the Core training program that’s included, you can upgrade to the TOTAL ATHLETE training program.
