There will be one session in Virginia from Sunday, June 24 to Wednesday, June 27, 2007, providing a proven teaching program for boys ages 10 to 18.

Recognizing that young players benefit from individual attention, the Lacrosse Academy was the first camp to offer private lessions. Each camper receives two 20-minute private lessons. No other camp offers more individual instruction. Newer players don’t get lost in the crowd as there is a entire divison dedicated to them, with coaches that are handpicked for not only their their lacrosse skills, but more importantly, their ability to teach as well.

The Lacrosse Academy’s comprehensive individualized teaching progression serves the needs of beginning, intermediate and older, less experienced players. All players are individually evaluated, then progress through daily, fundamental station work, individual positional work, competitive position drills, systematic unsettled play concepts and, finally, team play, where new skills and concepts are applied. The Academy also features daily specialized coaching in goalie play and face-offs.

The Lacrosse Academy is directed by Mike Caravana, Head Coach Woodberry Forest School, and Doug Bartlett, former Head Coach at VMI.
