    Description

    Designed for beginning and intermediate players (no experience necessary), this camp emphasizes individual lacrosse skills but also incorporates some elements of game strategy using small-sided games (3 v 3, 4 v 4). Session time includes both instruction and controlled scrimmages (once the players are at a level where a scrimmage is an effective learning tool). Camp also provides an opportunity to develop skills prior to trying out for a youth club lacrosse team.

    We have separate camps for grades K-3 and grades 4-8. Within those groups, where appropriate and where possible based on the number of participants, campers will be divided by age and ability after observation by the coaching staff. With an instructor:player ratio of 8:1 or better, it is easy to facilitate multiple levels of instruction for different age groups.

    Lead Instructor

    This program will be led by Coach Kevin Younger

    This program will be led by Kevin Younger, a master coach with the 3d Lacrosse Bandits in Fort Collins. 3d lacrosse is known for the box/field hybrid developmental system for youth players.

    Kevin has played and coached lacrosse for over 35 years. He was a 4-year starter in college playing at St. Mary’s College of Maryland (SMCM). While at SMCM Kevin led the team in points and assists for 3 years and was a captain for 2 years as well as receiving numerous awards and setting numerous offensive records. While attending graduate school at the University of Oregon Kevin was the head coach for the Ducks.

    Kevin has been the lead instructor for our Boys Lacrosse Camps and Instructional Leagues for the past four years. He has run the “Pinball” Lacrosse League at The Edge over the past four Summers and the Lax Ready program here over the past three Winters.  Kevin holds a US Lacrosse Level 2 coach certification.

    Additional Instructors

    Kevin will be assisted by experienced, local boys lacrosse instructors.

    The Indoor Lacrosse Facility at The Edge

    The Edge Sports Center has several field configurations available for use in Lacrosse Camps. Depending upon what the instructor wants to accomplish on a given day, one or the other configuration may be used.

    Full Field Team Practice Setup: The full 180' x 122' open field has been permanently lined to simulate the center section (lengthwise) of a full-sized lacrosse field, from the mid-field strip to the end-line beyond the goal. This allows enough space for a standard size 'Attack area,' with the corresponding mid-field area.

    Lacrosse SetupFull Field

    Two full-size, standard lacrosse goals are available in this configuration.

    The 3 v 3 Lacrosse (“Chumash”) Setup:Two full 3 v 3 Lacrosse (“Chumash”) fields can be fit into the 60 yard by 40 yard indoor field at The Edge Sports Center. This allows two games to be taking place simultaneously. Each field is equipped with a standard Chumash goal. There is protected space in the middle of the field for spectators.
