YEAR ROUND TRAINING
We are establishing a year-round system for youth and high school lacrosse players. For a lot of lacrosse players all over the country, they have to pick and choose between various camps, clinics and teams throughout the course of the year. Many times, they end up learning the same things over and over again and really do not develop fully as players. We have set up opportunities so that lacrosse players may play on their club and high school teams during the spring and in the off-season, work with us. We know that once you begin to learn how to play lacrosse from our amazing staff, you will not need to turn anywhere else. Below is the calendar that we recommend for intermediate and elite level players to develop their skills and talent to their full potential. We also recommend that every youth and high school lacrosse player plays another team sport or two throughout the course of the year to fully develop himself athletically. We are the off-season training grounds for Colorado youth and high school boys lacrosse. Our first year programming has been a huge success with parents, players and coaches.
CAMPS, CLINICS AND TOURNAMENTS
With Hall of Fame lacrosse coach Bill Tierney joining DU in the summer of 2009, the Denver Pioneers lacrosse team is committed to being the best that we can possible be. Our main goal is to be one of the top NCAA Division I teams in the country. However, this commitment extends beyond our season and outside of our players, faculty and staff. We want to help bring the lacrosse community together in Denver and share our passion for this game with everyone involved. The growth of lacrosse in the western U.S. is happening exponentially year after year. We hope to help that growth through leading camps, clinics, elite teams and tournaments that raise the level of play throughout the region. Our journey to become one of the top contenders in Division I lacrosse is a challenging one, but it is going to be exciting! Be a part of our team and family as we commit to our goal to be the best. If you have a question about any of our camps, clinics or elite teams, please go to our frequently asked questions page first. Thank you!
