CAMPS

Despite rainy weather and cool temps, it’s time to start thinking about the summer!  Coaches get many requests about lacrosse camps and clubs, so we thought it would be helpful to highlight a few options for both below.

When choosing a camp or club, our best advice is to talk with other DSYL families to get first-hand accounts of which camps, clinics, tournaments, teams, and even leagues (fall and winter) are tried and true. In addition to the logistical questions (where/when/how much?), ask a lot of questions to find which organizations not only have the best value, but truly focus on the athlete experience:

  • Skill-centered and focused on teaching
  • Good ratio of coaches/counselors-to-athletes
  • Proper grouping of athletes by age and/or grade
  • Equal attention to players of all ages, experiences, skill-levels
  • Equal/fair playing time for tournament teams
  • Well communicated policies and philosophies
  • An overall emphasis on a fun, safe, healthy, and inclusive atmosphere to learn and play

There are a LOT of awesome organizations in Massachusetts that put together experiences of great value with a priority on the athlete experience (development, enjoyment, and growth). However, there are also some organizations where caution is advised: unorganized, only in it for profit, unequal focus and attention to athletes, delivering false promises, etc.

To reiterate: Our best advice is to lean on familiar faces, ask a lot of questions, and talk to your DSYL coaches for guidance on finding the right fit for the boys.
