Culver & Hopkins Prospect Camps

After a resoundingly successful first year, we are bringing back the Prospect Camp - and this time, in TWO locations!

We are now accepting applications for the 2017 Midwest Culver Prospect Camp and - new to the lineup this year - the 2017 Hopkins Prospect Camp! 

This summer, players in grad years 2021-2024 will have the opportunity to work with Division 1 coaches in two exceptional settings. 

The Culver Prospect Camp will be held from June 6-9, 2017 at the prestigious Culver Academies, home of the nationally ranked CMA lacrosse team, under the direction of Jon Posner, head coach of the CMA lacrosse prep team. 

The Hopkins Prospect Camp will be held from June 13-16, 2017, on the campus of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. The Johns Hopkins lacrosse program continually ranks at the top of Division 1 lacrosse, and we're giving you the opportunity to train at their impressive facilities in the heart of the lacrosse hotbed.

The purpose of both camps is to bring together the best players at each age group to offer an advanced training in preparation for the summer season and their future lacrosse endeavors.

We bring in some of the best lacrosse coaches in Division 1 lacrosse. Last year at the Culver Camp, we had coaches representing from Delaware, Boston, Albany, High Point, and Notre Dame, to name a few. This year promises to bring in even more talent to help you develop your skills and compete at a high level. 

Again, these camps are open to any player in grad years 2021-2024, regardless of club or high school. Don't miss out on this exclusive opportunity to work with some of the best coaches in the game with other top players from across the country. 

*Applicants must provide a reference as part of the application process. Successful applicants typically will have been starters for their respective travel and/or high school teams.
