Top 'Cat Elite Camp  |  Climbing Cat Summer Lacrosse Day Camp

DURHAM, N.H.
– The University of New Hampshire women's lacrosse program has announced that it will hold two camps simultaneously in the last week of June. The Climbing Cat Summer Lacrosse Day Camp and the Top Cat Elite Lacrosse Overnight Camp will both be held June 25-28.

Led by UNH head coach Michael Daly, a staff consisting of top Division I and Division II head and assistant coaches, as well as former Div. I players, will focus on helping you become the best player you can be.

The Climbing Cat Day Camp, which is daily from 8:30 am to 12 p.m., is being offered for players entering grades 1-6 (in Fall 2012) who want a developmental-styled instructional camp. The cost is $200. The curriculum for this half-day day camp is geared toward the younger player who is less experienced or a beginner in the sport of lacrosse. Each day is designed to develop your fundamental skills and lacrosse knowledge in an atmosphere that promotes learning, competition and fun.

The Top Cat Elite Camp is split into two divisions. The cost of this camp, which includes three sessions Monday through Wednesday and two sessions on Thursday, is $495 per camper; the Top Cat has a $425 day camper option.

The Top Cat is offered for the experienced middle school and high school lacrosse player who is looking for a fun, instructional yet competitive camp experience; the training sessions focus on teaching the basic skills, concepts and situations that will give you the lacrosse skills, game understanding and confidence to make quality decisions on the field and ultimately help you succeed as a top lacrosse player. The Top Cat camp highlights individual player development but includes scrimmages in small game and full-field situations, as well as strength and conditioning designed for the high school player.

The Top Cat Elite is geared toward serious and advanced high school lacrosse players. It is an advanced instructional camp open to those entering grades 10-12 (Fall 2012). The training sessions focus on teaching the skills, concepts and situations to give you the lacrosse skills, game understanding and confidence to make quality decisions on the field and ultimately prepare you to play collegiately. In addition to challenging skill development drills, the Top Cat Elite includes scrimmage opportunities in small game and full-field situations as well as strength and conditioning, speed training, nutrition and sport psychology sessions designed specifically for advanced players.
