2013 Residential Camp at Virginia Tech
Now entering its seventh year, the Commonwealth Lacrosse Camp provides high school aged boys both advanced individual instruction and competitive game play. The camp will be held July 15-18 on the campus of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, 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 nearly 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 fifth season with the Commonwealth Lacrosse Camp and serves as the camp's assistant director. Coach LePore played collegiately at the Citadel and SUNY Geneseo before beginning a successful coaching career in 2001. A former 'Coach of the Year' at Stonewall Jackson High School, Coach Lepore presently serves as the Head Men's Lacrosse Coach at Northern Virginia Community College.
Assisting Coach Swanenburg and Coach 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 residence halls with Internet access. They will also enjoy all-you-care-to-eat meals in Virginia Tech's nationally acclaimed dining facility. Finally, during their free time, campers can enjoy activities such as swimming and bowling.
