Just like an offensive attacker finding open space on a fast break leading to an opportunity to wing a laser or bounce shot into the back of the net or a defense man making the game changing body check that produces a ground ball turnover, being in the right place at the right time in lacrosse can lead to success on and off the field. High school lax players will have the opportunity to absorb knowledge of the college lacrosse game, what the college lacrosse coaches are looking for in a player and how to take their game to the next level at the Lynn University Men’s Lacrosse ID Camp to be held on Sunday, September 21, at Malfitano Field at Bobby Campbell Stadium on the campus of Lynn University in Boca Raton. The ID Camp will feature game play, college lacrosse instruction, stations and drills, a tour of the Lynn University campus and men’s lacrosse facilities, and NCAA lectures on compliance and recruiting. Cost is $95 before Aug. 15 and $125 thereafter.

Coach Kingsbury and assistant coach Mike Wilus are hosting ID Camp for high school lacrosse players interested in playing lacrosse at the collegiate level, on Sunday, September 21, at Bobby Campbell Stadium on the campus of Lynn University in Boca Raton.
The ID Camp is open to high school sophomores, juniors and seniors interested in playing collegiate level lacrosse. During the ID Camp, players will be evaluated on skill level and assessed on their ability. “At our camp, the coaches will set up skill related drills and game situations to assess players athletic and lacrosse ability. The athletes will interact within a college setting to gage their social skills as well,” said Lynn University Men’s Lacrosse coach Brian Kingsbury. Coach Kingsbury and assistant coach Mike Wilus will also be helping the lacrosse players learn how to improve via an array of lacrosse stations. While the ID Camp focuses on lacrosse instruction, the camp will be mostly game oriented. In all, the ID Camp will include two sessions of station work and games. “We will have 1v1, 2v1, 2v2, 3v2, 4v4, 5v4, 6v6, and 10v10 stations to see how a prospect will play in these situations and how they will adapt to different coaching styles,” said Coach Kingsbury. Players will then break for lunch and be introduced to Lynn University via a campus tour. “The tour of Lynn University’s campus will include the Elmore Dinning Commons, academic classrooms, campus library, the Wold Performing Arts Center, fitness center, practice field as well as Malfitano Field at Bobby Campbell Stadium and the brand new locker rooms at BCS. The tour will be guided by a current Lynn University student,” said Coach Kingsbury. “The NCAA lecture portion will be hosted by our compliance personnel where they will give a better insight on NCAA rules and becoming NCAA eligible. For the recruiting side, our coaches will inform the players on what they should be doing to get maximum exposure in front of college lacrosse coaches,” said Coach Kingsbury.
