When the temperatures are pushing 100 degrees and the humidity is at levels not common in Oklahoma, the one thing you probably don’t think to do is run all over an open field for 12 hours. But that is just what a group of kids and members of the Oklahoma Sooners lacrosse team did for four days this past month.
Partnered with Nike Lacrosse and Braveheart Lacrosse, the camp was attended by over 40 young men looking to hone their lax skills. Oklahoma Lacrosse juniors Andrew Ousley, Lucas Barker and Ryan Echavarren worked alongside Nike Lacrosse Camp Director Mario Enea running drills, scrimmages, and other team/player building activities. Players were able to have quality one on one time as well for whatever their needs were, whether stick handling or playing goal. Lax players from as far away as Georgia and California attended the overnight, on Campus, camp.
It’s safe to say that the first Lacrosse Camp at OU was a major success. The campers, coaches, and parents were all satisfied with the level of instruction and teachings.
