Defense Position Camp

Defense Only Camp Details

The 18th Annual Defensemen Only Lacrosse Camp is the original specialized teaching camp for close defensemen (ages 10-18) and the midfield defensive players. The first of its kind the Defensemen Only Camp has an intense learning atmosphere. College coaches, known for their exceptional and nationally ranked defensive teams, will lead this camp, interacting and teaching the campers.

The DOC is innovative in its position specific instruction. Defensemen will work with college coaches focusing on skills such as:

  • Footwork
  • Stick positioning
  • Checks
  • Stick work

Instruction is highlighted in drills by defensemen competing against college attackmen and midfielders in morning and afternoon sessions.

The evening sessions offer the unique opportunity to work against campers from the Shooting Skills Academy held during the same time. Both camps will be in the same dorms and have the same meal times.
