Although we’re just about to face-off the 2014 season, this is the time of year when Coach Goldberg gets many inquiries about summer lacrosse as parents begin to think through vacations, camps etc. The Stix Board and the Coaching Staff are committed to making Dunwoody Lacrosse one of the premier Lacrosse programs in the state. As such, we have enhanced our Summer and Fall programs as well as our Off Season Conditioning program over the last two years For this upcoming summer, the coaches and board have weighed the numerous options and decided that one team camp and one tournament presents the best opportunity.
Team camp is the next step for our program so as to continue the incredible growth we have seen in just these past three years. It is limited to player’s from three area schools and is tailored based on our team’s distinct needs. It’s a great mix of education, fundamentals, advanced concepts, competition, and fun. We have partnered with legendary Long Island HS head coach Steve DiPietro, founder and head coach of Long Island Lax Camps. Long Island Lax Camps has worked with several premier GA teams over the past few years, including state champions Milton, Centennial, Lassiter, and our rivals over at St. Pius. As you can see, the programs who success we are striving to duplicate are already taking advantage of this unique opportunity. While we would like and encourage players to participate in as many camps as possible during the summer, we understand that jobs, vacations and finances can limit those options. As such, we ask that this team camp be the primary camp for our players this summer.
Camp is scheduled for June 30 – July 3; 10am-2pm @ Silverbacks Park and the cost is $395. All rising 9-12 graders are strongly encouraged to participate. We ask that registrations and a deposit of $175 be delivered to myself, Joe Martin or Dorte Bieber no later than March 15th. In the meantime, please see the attached information and you can email Coach Goldberg with any questions or concerns.
In addition to camp, we will once again field a team for the GA games located in Dallas, GA. The tournament will be the weekend of July 19-20, 2014.
I have included the current 8th graders to be part of this experience as the team camp will be an important starting point for the 2014-15 season. We know schedules are very busy in the Summer but we hope that everyone will be able to carve out time for the camp and the tournament. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions and I look forward to seeing everyone at our first game next week!
