Carroll Manor Lacrosse Camps and Clinics

A great way for a player to continue to develop their lacrosse skills during the off season is to participate in summer camps and/or play club lacrosse.  Listed below are a number of camps and club programs.  There are literally hundreds of camps and clubs to choose from, but we've limited the list local programs.  Please note this list is provided for your convenience and CMLAX does not specifically endorse any of the camps or clubs below.

New for 2016:  Tuscarora Titan's Lacrosse Camp


FCPL Sidekick - CMLAX Learn to Lax Clinic

Carroll Manor Lacrosse presents a clinic for new players or players with less than two years experience. The clinic will be run by US Lacrosse Certified Coaches. This is a beginners clinic which will focus on stick work and fundamentals.

This Clinic is for Boys & Girls.  Full helmet and pads will not be required. Players should bring a lacrosse stick, a molded mouthpiece, cleats or sneakers, and a water bottle. There will be a few loaner sticks available. Learn about and experience playing the sport played by Native Americans long before European settlers arrived.

Club Teams

Club team tryouts are typically scheduled for the late Summer / early Fall.  Most teams hold two tryouts and your player is encouraged to attend both. There are several clubs that Carroll Manor Lacrosse has worked with in the past, but we now find ourselves competing for players in the Spring and/or Fall Seasons. We no longer endorse any specific club programs.  When selecting a club team, be sure to ask if their schedule conflicts with the WMYLC Spring Season!

Although the club programs potentially offer a great experience for the player, they are also highly competitive (requiring tryouts and not guaranteeing playing time) and expensive (typically $800-1500 for the Spring / Summer) plus travel expenses to tournaments.  You should consider talking to your player's coach in advance of attending a tryout.
