Success is about having, excellence is about being. Success is about having money and fame, but excellence is being the best you can be.

Lacrosse has become one of the more popular sports offered at Bridgton Sports Camp. The program is built to improve your game, whether it's your first time picking up a stick or you're getting serious about the game. After 3 weeks of hard work on the field, campers go home with an improved skill set and confidence in their abilities.
The goal of the lacrosse program at Bridgton Sports Camp is to allow our campers to leave as better skilled, more confident athletes. We will help to develop a player's all-around game, while allowing each camper time to focus on the position of their choice. We will work to improve their general lax IQ, emphasizing strategy, techniques, and teamwork. This understanding of the game of lacrosse will be taught through drills, intra-camp scrimmaging, as well as games against local camps. Our campers leave as better all-around players on the field and as more mature young men off of the field.
Our instruction will cover the following skill set:
- Goalie Skills
- Switching Hands
- Face Off
