BYU Lacrosse Camp FAQs

Q:  Which lacrosse camp should I attend?

A:  All sessions of the BYU Lacrosse Camps are open to all participants regardless of skill set so long as age requirements are met.  Each of the camps has a different focus and we encourage campers to attend the camp that will best help them improve. 

Q:  What if I can’t attend the week of camp that I think would be best for me to attend?

A:  Each week of camp will have coaches that are assigned to coach and train players in each age group and with specific skill levels.  Every week of camp (with the exception of Session 3) will have a beginner, intermediate and advanced group to work with players.  All sessions will feature a rising junior and senior showcase.

Q:  What if I am an elite qualified player, but I can’t make it to Week 3 (Elite camp)?

A:  Every year we have varsity lacrosse players including elite players that are unable to attend our 3rd session of camp, but are able to attend session 1 or session 2.  We expect that this will happen again this year and because of this we designate coaches and special practice plans for these athletes.  Every year we have enough players that fall into this category that we are able to fill several teams to compete throughout the week.  The 2014 Camp will feature the Top 40 Cougar Showcase Game in each of the three Boy Sessions.

Q:  Do I need to have my coach’s recommendation for the Elite Camp before I register?

A:  No.  Register immediately, because space is limited.  If you have questions whether or not the Elite camp is right for you, discuss with your Varsity Coach and you are welcome to send and questions to camps@byulacrosse.com.

Q:  Can I attend more than 1 week of lacrosse camp?

A:  Yes.  Because each session of camp varies in its focus, players that desire to attend more than 1 week of camp are welcome and will have a different quality experience each week.

Q:  Can I attend camp without staying on campus?

A:  Yes.  BYU Lacrosse Camps provides both on campus and off campus options for camp.

Q:  Who will be my lacrosse coach while at camp?

A:  Head Coach Matt Schneck carefully selects each on field coach for each week of camp.  Different sessions require different types of coaches.  For example, the girl’s camp is completely staffed by the best male and female lacrosse coaches in the area that have both girl’s high school and women’s college lacrosse coaching experience.  Our Boy’s sessions are staffed by both college lacrosse coaches and all-American collegiate players.  Head Coach Matt Schneck is in attendance at all sessions.
