2017 Journey to the Tourney

Unfortunately registration for overnight has closed.  Day camper is still available!

Prepare yourselves for the best training camp to head into the summer tournament season ahead of your competition. The Journey to the Tourney is an elite training opportunity for youth players to work in an intimate setting with their teammates and coaches, establishing a solid bond and elevating individual and group skills.

Each day, players will participate in sessions covering specific plays, team concepts, and player roles in preparation for their tournaments. Celebrity coaches will attend camp to work with players on position specific skills and give advanced demonstrations and training. Additionally, college coaches will also attend to give demonstrations and provide motivational talks to all campers. When they are not working on their game, players will enjoy team-bonding activities with their coaches and teammates. Each night, the teams will meet with their coaches before heading back to the dorms where they will stay with their teammates.

Following the model and format of the same training camp that all Major League Lacrosse players attend prior to their season, the Journey to the Tourney will ensure that True Lacrosse travel teams are ready to dominate at the summer tournaments.

Journey to Tourney is open to True Lacrosse travel players only.
