What do I get?
Professional-level Sports Instruction, an unforgettable experience for each athlete, Athletic Trainer Costs and Facility Rental.
The camp was an amazing opportunity for my son and he LOVED it! To have players (some very well known) who have graduated from the FCA program come back, on their own to volunteer their time, says volumes. Not to mention the 20+ years of being around. If anyone asks us what we think, we are the first ones to praise the FCA lacrosse program and more than happy to recommend everyone go and be part of the FCA program no matter what the sport. We have never been so happy and thankful to be part of such an amazing program. We hope to be able to be a part of the FCA organization for years to come!Camper's Parent

Camp Director / Offense
From his hometown of Penfield, NY, Aaron Civalier played lacrosse at Nazareth College. He currently is the offensive coach at Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, NY.
Through stations and small group work, our coaching staff will concentrate the game in a detailed progression with the goal of improving each player’s skills. Additionally, staff will provide campers with strategies that can be implemented for ongoing skill improvement.
Instruction will be detailed and will concentrate on fundamentals while providing position-specific stations. Practice plans will be available after camp, upon request, for players to take with them and practice on their own.
Aaron will lead 24 offensive players through instruction and share some of the lacrosse skills and fundamentals that have made him so successful. Solomon will work with 16 defensemen and train them on how to play this position, including stick work, footwork, clearing and many other skills.
Every athlete will be provided the opportunity to explore or grow in their Christian faith. Our camp guest speakers and small group Bible studies will focus on humility, truth and faith.
Camp Theme “Let’s Go”
Each year we incorporate a theme on and off the field during camp. This year our theme is “Let’s Go” based on Matthew 28:19-20.
“Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.””
Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has challenged athletes and coaches to impact the world for Jesus Christ. Camps are a time of “inspiration and perspiration” for athletes and coaches who want to reach their potential through comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training.
I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with the FCA Lacrosse program. I know that we have only been involved with FCA since September 2013 but everything that I have seen; from the organizers to the coaches, everything is done first class. I have been a lacrosse coach for the past 23 years and I cannot tell you how much it means to a lacrosse guy to see a program like this available to kids in our area. Training camp was great and the boys learned a ton. He came home talking about the huddles and what the coaches had taught him. The message that these kids are getting is something that has been missing in our society and youth sports for a long time. Keep up the good work!Local High School Coach
