Concept / Philosophy:

Intermediate and advanced players only completely focus on the attack and defense positions. Midfielders who want to improve their offense should attend. Long Stick Middies are welcome of course as well.  Goalies can attend for 50% OFF because they will see hundreds of shots daily without instruction. Email info@madlax.com if you are a goalie who wants to attend.
This intense camp enables the camper to devote total attention to the specific skills related directly to playing offense and defense better. He will participate in demanding and intense drills in which the counselors put on their pads and play with you. Shoot on college goalies.

You will get advanced instruction from an extremely qualified staff that will teach the advanced skills, secrets, and tricks they learned on the collegiate battlefields. If you become a better one-on-one player you will be a better all-around player and a greater asset to your team.  Current G-town players make up the majority of the coaching staff and Directors Cabell Maddux and Harrison Holak have turned this specialty camp into one of the best positional sessions in the entire region.  Don't miss out!  Register now as we only take 50 players maximum to ensure maximum attention.
