About us

At Shirk Lacrosse Camps, we put an emphasis on personalized instruction and keep our camper to staff ratio low. We welcome all experience levels and will separate campers, when necessary, by skill level, age, and preferred position. Our camps and clinics are the perfect way to improve your skills, advance your lacrosse IQ, and prepare for the season!

Our camps also emphasize the importance of playing on a team, working hard while having fun, and doing the right thing both on and off the field. We have zero tolerance for bullying or misconduct during any of our camps and clinics.
