At Jeff 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, or preferred position. Our camps and clinics are the perfect way to decide which position is right or to improve your skills in your preferred position.
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 a zero tolerance for bullying or misconduct during any of our camps and clinics.
