Players will be grouped according to skill level and age.  

Bear Down Lacrosse is focused on building fundamentals and having fun. We take a three-pronged approach for camps skill work, small, sided games, and simple concepts of the game. 

  1. Skill work will teach players the proper mechanics of throwing, catching, picking up ground balls, dodging, and shooting. We strive to instill the practice habits that they will need to be great players. 

  1. Games will be 3 v 3, 4 v 4, and 5 v 5.  These position-less games will allow everyone to handle the ball and everyone to play defense. We stive to maximize quality touches and most importantly have fun! 

  1. Simple concepts related to spacing, timing, and body position will be taught. We strive to build IQ so players will be in the right places and make good decisions during live game play.  

We will take a break in the middle of the day to eat lunch and cool off.

Rain Day Activities: In the event of severe inclement weather, our campers will be engaged in the following indoor activities: 

  • Watch lacrosse videos
  • Fitness workouts
  • Agility training
  • Stick work
  • Technical Sessions (Field positions, play styles, etc.)

We will follow the weather closely to make sure that campers get back onto the field as soon as the rain stops, and it is safe to play.
