Booster Club Sponsoring
Summer Girls' Lax Camp
The Huntington Booster Club is sponsoring a summer girls' lacrosse camp at Huntington High School for students entering grades 3-8. The session will run from June 28 through July 1 from 5-8 p.m. each day. Tuition is $125 for each participant.
The camp will offer a program for those ranging from beginners to players entering the junior varsity level. Participants will be taught solid fundamentals and techniques and develop the skills necessary for success.
Huntington varsity head coach Nancy Wilson will serve as program director.
She earned a BA degree at Arcadia University and was a four-year lacrosse player there, winning the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference Defender of the Year Award as a college junior. Ms. Wilson is an accomplished scholastic coach. Prior to taking over the Blue Devil program, she led Harborfields to several Suffolk crowns.
In case of rain, the camp will move indoors to the high school gym. Participants are required to bring goggles, a mouthpiece and a lacrosse stick each day. The camp will focus on both technical and tactical training and serve as an opportunity for new and current players to improve their game. Certified coaches will instruct participants. Each camper will receive a t-shirt.
"Ms. Wilson ha always maintained a core focus of developing an athlete's individual skills while fostering the critical understanding of teamwork and sound game awareness," according to the camp brochure. "Character, integrity, focused determination and resiliency are stressed through daily practice and competition."
