Starting in December we will be hosting a number of New Player and Beginner Camps to all ages and abilities. You will not need ANY EQUIPMENT and you can work out in our new indoor training facility called the Eagles Nest: 6830 Washington Ave. S., Eden Prairie.
Beginner Camps begin in December, January and Feb. All of our clinics are led by Scott Hugdahl, legendary Minnesota Lacrosse guru.
Our program is structured to teach the kids the basics fundamentals of lacrosse (Picking up ground balls, Running with the Ball, Throwing/Catching, and Shooting).
