In 2017, we launched the 2017 College Platinum Series Camps! We invited the head coach and their staff from 4 of the top DI programs in the NCAA, Denver, Johns Hopkins, Syracuse, and Michigan. We flew them to Oakville and they each provided programming and instruction for 2 days of camp. The coaches took players through a variety of drills and training as they would at their own school. Off the field, coaches hosted film sessions, nutritional and weight training seminars and spoke about leadership and provided insight into what it takes to play lacrosse in the NCAA.
Ontario's best summer lacrosse camp is back for 2018! The College Platinum Series is NOT your ordinary summer camp. We have secured 4 of the most prestigious and competitive Division I college programs and their staff for the 2018 College Platinum Series.
The 4 day camp will provide players with an ELITE summer camp where they will spend 7 hours each day training, learning and working with some of the most experienced, and decorated coaches in the sport of lacrosse. You will not find a better summer lacrosse camp in Ontario.
Platinum Series is geared towards players of all levels, but specifically for high performing lacrosse players. Learn from the best coaches in college lacrosse. Any players who have aspirations of playing college lacrosse or furthering their development and abilities will benefit from platinum series!
