1. How do I register for camp?
There are two ways to register for camp. Either click the “Sign-Up Online” link or the appropriate camp link located on the site navigational bar. Once you access the online submission form, remember to specify which camp you are registering for by selecting an option in the “Camp” field. Once your form has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation email reminding you to mail in your camp payment and camp liability and release form. Both must be received before campers are allowed to participate in camp activities. Additionally, campers must present a physical (completed within one year of the camp’s start date) or doctor’s signature before participation is permitted.
2. How do I get to camp?
Families typically drive to our camps. Our camp facilities are conveniently located 1 hour from Philadelphia or Harrisburg, 2 hours from Baltimore, Wilmington, or Newark, and under 3 hours from New York, Dover, or Washington DC. Depending on arrival and departure times, we can transport campers to and from Reading, PA’s airport, train, and bus stations. Lastly, our facilities are 1.5 hours from the Philadelphia International Airport. We cannot provide transportation to and from Philadelphia, but there are services that will for a reasonable fee.
3. What should parents do while the kids attend camp?
Parents are welcome to watch on-field camp sessions/games or attend classroom educational sessions/seminars. However, Reading, PA offers parents with the opportunity to enjoy the same cultural and social venues found in most cities. Parents may want to take advantage of Reading’s nationally famous outlet shopping or catch one of the city’s many professional sports teams.
4. Are players that are new to the sport allowed to attend camp?
Absolutely! While many of our campers are experienced players, the individual attention provided by our camp staff allows newcomers to learn and improve at a rate that is more realistic for them.
5. What do I need to bring to camp?
Campers are expected to bring their own lacrosse equipment (stick, helmet, gloves, shoulder pads, elbow pads, athletic supporter, and mouthpiece). Helmets, shoulder pads, elbow pads, and rib pads can be rented for an additional fee. Our camps feature both turf and grass surfaces, so we suggest wearing molded cleats (metal cleats are not allowed on the turf). Also, campers are encouraged to bring training shoes (sneakers) for speed and agility workouts and lifting weights. Campers can also bring money to buy drinks, snacks, apparel, and equipment in the camp store. If campers do bring money, we highly suggest putting it in the camp bank to prevent theft. Overnight campers should also bring extra t-shirts and socks, towels, a pillow, bed linens, toiletries, and sunscreen.
6. What is the camper to coach ratio?
Every camp is different, but Carrington Lacrosse prides itself on the ability to provide individual instruction. Our camper to coach ratios range from 5 to 1 and 9 to 1. This type of individual attention requires us to place maximum camper limits on each camp. Sign-up early to avoid being put on the waiting list.
7. What coaches will be attending camp?
The staff varies from camp to camp. Our college preparatory camps will feature top collegiate and high school coaches. However, Carrington Lacrosse does not offer “recruiting” camps. Rather, our camps are designed to give players the tools to get recruited. Campers will also have the opportunity to receive advice from top collegiate players from all three NCAA Divisions. Our youth camps will be led by Coach Carrington and his standout players at Alvernia University.
8. What measures does the camp take to ensure health and safety?
A certified athletic trainer will be present at all of our contact camps. Our camps take place on the safe and suburban campus of Alvernia University. However, our campus security staff still diligently monitors campus safety. We also require coaches to live in the dorms with the campers.
