The Harker Girls Summer Lacrosse Camp, a new offering in this year’s summer program, promises to be a great opportunity for girls to learn and fine-tune their skills in this increasingly popular sport.
This camp is designed for a wide range of experience levels, from beginner to advanced. It will focus on helping players build confidence, improve their lacrosse knowledge, develop key skills and instill solid field strategy. Skills that will be stressed include footwork, stickwork, shooting, dodging, teamwork and defensive concepts. Small-sided games will be played to demonstrate and practice these skills and for just plain fun!
Harker girls lacrosse head coach Alyssa Dunlap will act as instructor along with other coaches and players with division I collegiate backgrounds. Dunlap’s credentials reach as far back as her time in high school, where she was instrumental in helping her team win three consecutive Pennsylvania State Championships and was twice named High School All-American. While at Vanderbilt University, she was selected for the All-West Region team by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association and named to the All-American Lacrosse Conference first team. Prior to joining Harker, Dunlap coached at Stanford University and the Treelax Lacrosse Club.
The Harker Girls Summer Lacrosse Camp is being offered in two sessions, each for different grade levels. The first session, for grades 6-12, will run July 17-20, and the second session, for grades 3-5, will run July 31-Aug. 3. This camp will be held at The Harker School’s upper campus.
