Grand Valley State Women's Lacrosse Camp

2017 Laker Elite Camp

Grand Valley State University Athletics and GVSU Women’s Lacrosse lives by three fundamentals. The first is to: Create the Best Learning Environment Possible. We want to make sure each player has the greatest opportunity to succeed, by provid-ing the best facilities, coaching, support staff and education. Our second fundamental: Challenge Our Teams to Competitive Greatness. Throughout the year and at our camps, we chal-lenge our players to go outside their comfort zone by playing against the best and learning from both their successes and shortcomings. Our third fundamental is a simple one: Commit the Energy Necessary for Success! Coaches Groveston, Ber-notas and Johnson do that on a daily basis, by providing their student athletes their full attention and dedication. They expect that same dedication and passion from their athletes in return. Coach Groveston’s goal is to maximize each student-athlete’s full potential. She works to get the best out of each player both on and off of the field.

Campers will be exposed to the “Three Fundamentals” first hand through playing lacrosse, forming new relationships, and experi-encing student life. Not only are Vesta, Rach and Lyss (as the coaches are known) working to enhance each player’s strengths but are also helping to improve weaknesses through fun, ener-getic, and competitive drills. The coaches will be working on both an individual and group level in an attempt to maximize each camper’s abilities and take their game to the next level..
