feedback on Peak Lacrosse Camp:

Great experience for the better players, albeit humbling. Waste of time for average or lesser players because the competition level is so high. This was the 17th year the camp was held at Springfield College where it is run by their 25 year athletic director. Each player had individual instruction in the AM, followed by scrimmages in the AM, afternoon and evening. The kids had enough down time for fun but there is serious competition as well. Boys came from all over New England, NY and many other states including 8 who flew in from Texas. The camp did fill up by early June.
