At Highland Park Lacrosse Camp, our goal is to stimulate a love for the game by immersing you in the sport and giving you the kind of focused and intensive training that is essential for your improvement. Over the course of the camp, your enthusiasm and self-confidence will grow along with your skills.  All lessons are designed to foster the mastery of the basic skills and access to the advanced skill development. No matter a player's position or skill level, Scottie Lacrosse will improve his game and inspire him to reach new heights. WHAT TO BRING: It is the responsibility of each player to come to the clinic with the appropriate gear and equipment (sticks, gloves, pads, mouth guard, and helmet). Don't have gear? Good news.  See Mr. Gay if you need to borrow some equipment.  Furthermore, each player is required to wear his helmet at all times during drills, practices, scrimmages, and games. Special treats include a trip to Juiceland and a surprise field trip!
