On Sunday, Hobart Head Lacrosse coach Matt Kerwick ’90 will welcome the first wave of young lacrosse players participating in the 34th annual Hobart Lacrosse Camp. Being one of the original instructional camps in the United States, Hobart’s program is gearing up for an impressive 500 boys from more than 10 states and Canada.
“We have over 25 of the top college and high school coaches in the country coming to work the camp this year. Kerwick said. “That kind of instruction and experience makes for an excellent learning environment.
Kerwick strongly believes that through effective teaching, strong leadership, positive discipline and challenging competitive opportunities, the program develops its campers not only as athletes, but as citizens and students as well.
The camp is made up of two different sessions for boys aged 10-18. The first session runs from July 15-July 19 and the second session runs from July 21-July 25. Proceeding both main sessions will be two-day goalie camps.
In addition, Hobart lacrosse will host the Brine/Hobart Team Challenge Camp from July 26-28. This year, the camp is providing 22 teams the opportunity to compete against other serious Canadian and United States teams while receiving intense instruction from top Division I, II and III coaches. The camp’s dates align with those of the New York Empire State Games, providing the campers with plenty of exposure to college coaches.
“We have 22 excellent teams coming to Geneva from both the U.S. and Canada, Kerwick stated. “It is a tremendous recruiting opportunity.
