Swax Lax Lacrosse offers week-long summer camps at various locations in Central New Jersey that are open to all beginners in K-6th grade who are eager to learn the sport.
We teach the basic lacrosse skills—catching, throwing, cradling, shooting, dodging, defensive footwork, and positioning—but we shake things up by introducing different drills and games. After so many years of running lacrosse programs, we have many options for covering the concepts in fun and creative ways. Since players are generally divided up by age and, if appropriate, by ability, coaches try to introduce more advanced skills and concepts if they think their group is up for the challenge.
At Swax Lax Lacrosse, we offer more than just lacrosse over the course of a typical day. Activities like arts & crafts and playground time spice up the schedule. Traditions like Player of the Day, the Talent Show and the Cheer Competition are special camp activities on the girls’ side. Our goal as coaches is that our campers fall in love with the sport and want to keep playing after a full day in the sun. Check out a sample girls’ agenda.
Outdoor Lacrosse Clinics
We offer Outdoor Fall Clinics for K–6th grade girls and boys from early September through mid-October on Sunday afternoons. The clinics are usually an hour in length to accommodate busy fall schedules.
Groups are usually divided by grade. Friends can always be placed together upon request. Swax Lax Lacrosse clinics are designed for players who are ready to learn the sport, or take their skills to the next level in the off-season. No prior experience is necessary. We reinforce the basic skills of catching, throwing, cradling, ground ball pick-ups, dodging, shooting, and defensive stick work, while staying true to the Sum It Up spirit of building confidence and having fun!
Indoor Lacrosse Clinics
Swax Lax Lacrosse runs indoor clinics for K–2nd grade girls during the months of January and February. The clinics are generally offered once a week and are one-hour in length. Groups are usually divided by grade level. Friends can always be placed together upon request. Check out a typical agenda for more detail.

Swax Lax Lacrosse does not currently offer any programs in the spring because most of our staff either coach or play for their own school teams.
