Lacrosse Camps for the Summer
Lacrosse camps are a great opportunity for players to improve their game skills over the summer months, or for someone new to the sport to learn the basics and gear up for school year tryouts. Lacrosse resembles hockey, where a ball is caught and passed with a stick. The stick has a small mesh on the end of it to maneuver the ball, and the object is to land it in the opponent’s goal. For young lacrosse fans, there are many camps available in the San Francisco bay area and beyond.
