Go Rogue: Lacrosse Camps That Train Like The Pros With The Pros
Separate yourself from the rest and go Rogue. The Rogue experience is about giving each individual the skills, guidance and confidence to play as part of a team while defining yourself as a player. Rogue Lacrosse Camps are instructed by current collegiate coaches and professional players. Rogue is excited to offer 2016 camps in Arizona, Louisiana, Texas and New York. Campers grades 5-12 may attend with day camps, overnight camps and extended day camp options. Rogue camps are defined by the skill level, perseverance and sheer dedication of its coaches. It’s our intention to create individual attention to detail that separates Rogue from the rest. “We don’t talk at our athletes, we listen to them. It is our ability to listen to each individual and our attentiveness that gives our players the advantage of ‘feeling’ the game,” Josh Porcell Founder & CEO. Lacrosse is not meant to be a game of brute force but a game that involves teamwork, skill, strategy, and the ability to think in the moment. Rogue teaches its players to apply these qualities to conquer their opponents in the game and to overcome obstacles in life. Rogue coaches challenge players to ask themselves: Where am I in the game? Where do I want to be in the game? How can I take my game to the next level? The professional staff at Rogue will show players how to get there. At Rogue, we are coaches but most of all we are players with professional experience. Wouldn’t you rather learn from us?
Rogue brings current and prospective lacrosse players some of the best talent in the world to its camps. The Rogue staff is comprised of former collegiate players whom are now collegiate coaches, professional players and/or members of Team USA.
What to expect at Rogue Camps:
Our camps offer overnight and extended day options. At Rogue, each player will learn the fundamental skills of the game from an experienced staff that includes current and former collegiate/professional lacrosse players. The entire Rogue team is committed to developing and enhancing the potential of each player through positive instruction and game-like situations.
The Face-Off Academy (FOA):
This summer the Face-Off Academy staff joins the Rogue Team for all of our overnight camps. It is our pleasure to bring on the Staff of the FOA. At Rogue we strive to bring young players the very best in instruction throughout the country. The FOA Staff includes Greg Gurenlian (New York Lizards, Team USA), Jerry Ragonese (New York Lizards), and Chris Mattes (Florida Launch).
“The Faceoff Academy is dedicated to developing the lacrosse skills of every athlete through the highest quality of instruction. We strive to create well-rounded athletes with the ability to contribute to their teams offensively, defensively, and at the faceoff x. While physical skills are important, The Faceoff Academy recognizes that many times the mental game can be the difference between a good player and an elite player. Therefore, we place great emphasis on strengthening these skills. Although lacrosse is our main focus, we also seek to develop young men of character. The Faceoff Academy, above all else, takes pride in developing young men who are confident, and believe in hard work and discipline.”
