Empower the Athlete's Camp of the Week, Whiz Kids Lacrosse Camp

In an effort to get more information out to high school players and their families about what’s what with the summer recruiting camps, Empower the Athlete will be featuring camps on their Advisor Blog. They’ve interviewed the coaches who put on the camps to find out what makes their camp unique and why it’s worth your time and money.

Empower the Athletes States:

Leave it to Yale to have the ingenuity to create a camp that is specific for kids who want to go to a certain type of school. We love the premise of this camp because of its potential to simplify the recruiting process for both players and coaches: coaches will know that the kids at the camp are all good students and interested in selective schools, and kids will know they’ll be getting exposure to only the schools they are interested in.
