Our Staff Stays Awesome!
Sum It Up may have changed its name to Swax Lax Lacrosse, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the calibre of the returning coaching staff for our camps. At Swax Lax Lacrosse, we pride ourselves in delivering a great lacrosse camp experience with the best and brightest team members. We think they’re superstars in the sport of lacrosse, and in school and life.
We’re overjoyed that the number of coaches returning to Swax Lax Lacrosse this summer is 90 percent — even better, many of the coaches are former campers!

If your child hasn’t signed up yet, we hope you’ll sign him/her up today (sorry, camp is over for summer 2019, but we know we’ll have another great team for 2020!). Our impressive staff (we think you’ll agree) is excited to meet you and your child.
And, if you haven’t already, please help us spread the word — the coaches are eager to share their passion for lacrosse with your child and his/her friends.
