What time and where should campers be dropped off and picked up?

 

Campers should plan to arrive between 8:30-9:00 a.m. and pick-up is between 3:00-3:30 p.m.  The location will be the athletic fields that are located right at the entrance of campus (63 Federal Road).  When entering at the main entrance, stay right at the fork, the fields are immediately on the right.  There is a parking lot across the street from the fields.  Coaches and staff well be at the field to greet all players.

 

What equipment does my son or daughter need?

Girls – All girls will need goggles, a mouth guard and a stick.  Cleats are recommended for playing on natural grass. 

 

Boys – All boys should have full lacrosse equipment.

Helmet

Gloves

Mouth Guard

Arm Guards

Shoulder Pads

Stick

We highly recommend that boys wear a cup especially during drills where contact may occur. 

 

What is the rough schedule for the day?

An outline of the day’s activities can be found by clicking here.  This is a basic schedule and adjustments will be made to fit the needs of the campers.

What’s for lunch?

Lunch is included for all campers at St. Andrew’s world famous cafeteria.  Menu varies each day.  If your son/daughter has special dietary needs we suggest bringing your own lunch as we cannot guarantee that the cafeteria can meet specific dietary restrictions

 

Will there be water? 

Yes, we will provide water at the field each day.  We recommend that you bring your own water container that you can fill up on the field. 

How will players be grouped?

Players will be organized by age and ability.  After some initial drills coaches will determine the best grouping based on the age, size and ability of players.  Throughout the camp coaches may move players to different groups based on their progress during the week.

 

My son/daughter is new to the sport or has never played before?  My son/daughter is ready to play Division I lacrosse and knows everything about the game?

Please check out the profiles of our camp directors and coaches.  Our coaches have experience working with players of all levels and abilities.  Our goal is to make your son/daughter a better lacrosse player during this week. 

New players should expect to finish the week learning the basic fundamentals of the game (catching, throwing, picking up ground balls, dodging, shooting and basic defense).

Intermediate level players will work on further development of fundamentals/advanced techniques and developing what we like to call “lacrosse IQ” or a deeper understanding of the game from both an individual and team perspective.

Advanced players will have the chance to work with current college coaches that know what it takes to make it at the next level.  Our goal is to hone their “lacrosse IQ” and teach the individual skills and offensive/defensive concepts that are needed to succeed at the next level.  Good players know that there is always something they can learn or a skill they can work on to be a better player.  Our coaches will work to challenge advanced level players throughout the day to make them better.

Questions, comments, issues? 

At any point during the day you need to reach our camp staff, please call or text the camp director, Andrew Fink at 401-965-9039.

If at any point during the camp you have a comment or an issue, please reach out to us immediately.  We will make every effort to address any issues to make this camp an enjoyable experience for your son or daughter.  When the camp is over on Friday there is nothing we can do to fix a concern from Tuesday.  Reach out to us immediately so we can make this a great week!
