Elite Camp

The Furman Elite Lacrosse Camp offers players of all levels the opportunity to learn and improve on all aspects of their game.  Each day we will focus on both individual skills as well as team concepts with full field game situations at night.  The athletes will focus on improved stick skills, shooting technique, dodging, center draw, transition, defensive positioning footwork, and team offensive and defensive concepts.  There is a lot of learning and FUN packed in the two half day camp and we look forward to working with you!!!
