2018 True Summer Camp at Davenport University

Great facilities combined with a great coaching staff will once again culminate this year for a great experience at Davenport University. Every session is planned out to the minute to help the players learn about this great sport, and enjoy their experience. Stations in the morning, drills in the early afternoon, and games to wrap up the day will help players grow on an individual basis as well as progress in a team atmosphere. Between time on the field, we'll add in chalk talk, speed and agility training, and lots of fun!!

"If you're going to do one lacrosse event this summer, this is the one you can't miss. The level of coaching across the board is second to none. This camp is filled with tons of on and off field experiences that will help the players take their game to the next level and have a lot of fun doing it! This is the most fun we have all summer and it's reflected in the experience of the campers." - True Michigan
