LAX Fanatix Camp for Boys
Eastern Washington University, Cheney, WA
2020 Summer Camp Cancelled
Now in our 9th year of running camps, we have quickly developed the reputation as the "Best Youth Lacrosse Camp in the State". We coach this camp with purpose… we make kids better players. Our approach has kids and parents buzzing about the experience we offer. The campers will be trained and mentored by some excellent collegiate players and coaches. A niche that we are proud of is that all our camp coaches are Natives to the Pacific Northwest or coach locally. They really care about the development your kids and lacrosse locally. We have found that is the factor that sets us apart.
With STX Lacrosse Gear sponsoring the camp this year we will have some awesome prizes for skill challenges, hard work, sportsmanship and some random drawings too. The award session at the the end of camp is second to none with giveaways and positive recognition!
Bring your gear and be prepared for some summer fun with other lacrosse fanatic's. This camp will ensure fundamentals are perfected, while challenging players with advanced techniques and game strategies mixed in with some rad activities to keep this summer camp rocking! A significant portion of your fee is dedicated to the fun campus feel for the complete summer camp experience!
The EWU Campus is the perfect setting to give these young athletes the experience needed to improve their game while having a great time at a summer lacrosse camp. The facilities mesh great with lacrosse camp's needs. You'll enjoy time on the now famous "RED" Roos Field. We also take advantage of the Swimming Pool, Ice Skating Rink, and Climbing Wall to give the guys that awesome camp experience. The camp fee includes room, meals, lots of cool camp apparel, special prizes, campus recreation facilities, and of-course some incredible lacrosse training and expert coaching.
If you are interested, get registered soon. Just ask around to player that have attend year after year, you don't want to miss this camp. We have even had entire programs say they attribute the improvement skill on there teams to the Lax Fanatix Camp, because we truly strive to make a difference.
Take advantage of this opportunity and get registered soon!
