HAMPTON ROADS SHOWCASE
2020 Residential Camp at Radford University
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Camp Will Not be Held as Planned. Efforts to Reschedule Will Take Place if Social Distancing Restrictions are Lifted.
Now entering its fourteenth year, the Commonwealth Lacrosse Camp provides high school aged boys both advanced individual instruction and competitive game play. The camp will be held July 19-22 on the campus of Radford University in Radford, Virginia. Enrollment is open to both individuals and members of attending teams.
The camp is directed by Chris Swanenburg, a former All-Ivy goaltender at Yale University. Coach Swanenburg has 20 years of college coaching experience and has been running camps for over a decade. He is the all-time winningest coach at Division I Radford University and has 15 years of head coaching experience at the Division I and III levels. He is widely regarded as one of the top teachers in the sport and has helped produce college All-Americans and professional lacrosse players alike. Over the years, thousands of campers have learned the game and honed their skills under Coach Swanenburg.
Tony LePore enters his twelfth season with the Commonwealth Lacrosse Camp and serves as an assistant camp director. Coach LePore played collegiately at the Citadel and SUNY Geneseo before embarking upon a successful coaching career. A former 'Coach of the Year' at Stonewall Jackson High School, Coach Lepore presently serves as the Head Men's Lacrosse Coach at Division II Lander University in South Carolina. Prior to Lander, he was the Associate Head Men's Lacrosse Coach at Belmont Abbey College. LePore has also coached at Marymount University and was the Head Men's Lacrosse Coach at Northern Virginia Community College.
Assisting Coaches Swanenburg and LePore are some of the more accomplished adult coaches in the sport, many of whom have both college and high school coaching experience. Their professional, veteran guidance ensures that campers will learn the drills and skills necessary to succeed at both the high school and college levels. Furthermore, each camper will see improvement in his own game and gain a better understanding of the sport of lacrosse.
A typical camp day consists of three sessions. Mornings are largely reserved for individual development by position, afternoons are for the teaching of team concepts, and evenings are filled with competition.
The camp also features plenty of fun away from the practice fields. All campers will be housed in air-conditioned double occupancy rooms with private bathrooms and Internet access. They will also enjoy all-you-care-to-eat meals in Radford's newly renovated and highly acclaimed Dalton Dining Hall. Finally, during their free time, campers can enjoy activities such as bowling and billiards at no additional cost.
Additional information and a camp application are located in the camp brochure. You may also contact Coach Swanenburg at (443) 690-7683 or at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions.
