Be the Best - Carlsbad

Be the Best Camp - Alga Norte Sports Park in Carlsbad, CA

San Diego is proud to announce that we will be having two “Be the Best” camps for Summer 2015. Our goal is to properly teach the fundamentals of lacrosse in a fun and enjoyable environment. The camp is for boys and girls from 1st grade to incoming freshmen.

3d Lacrosse is the industry leader in training and development for youth and high school lacrosse players. The “Be the Best” camp series offers players an opportunity to train in 3d’s patented Box/ Field Hybrid Methodology. This style of training is at the cutting edge of lacrosse and can be seen at the highest levels of the game. To make sure that players are exposed to this highest level of training, we are flying in NCAA Division I and professional players to staff our “Be the Best” camps. 3d Lacrosse trained players become smarter, more skilled players. If you want to Be the Best, you have to train with the best!
