Description

Designed for beginning (no experience necessary) and novice (some experience) players, these camps emphasize individual lacrosse skills but also incorporate some elements of game strategy. 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. [Camp is not appropriate for experienced club-lacrosse players.]

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 Bandits in Fort Collins powered by 3d lacrosse. 3d lacrosse is known for the box/field hybrid developmental system for youth players. Kevin will be assisted by other local experienced boys lacrosse coaches.

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 all of 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.

    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.
