Families & Coaches,
When I look into putting on a camp each summer, I like to look back and recall my previous camp experiences from my first few years of playing this game. I’ll never forget how cool it was to meet Reed Southern, the Towson University goalie at the time back in 2002. Even thou Reed was a great goalie, that didn't matter to me. I knew he was able to make it to the Division 1 college level and I ate up everything he said. In fact, I wrote down every little piece of advice he gave me on looseleaf papers (no iPhones back then) and hung them up in my locker, kept them in the front of my binders in the off season, and held those notes close to me not only for the sake of improving but more for a reminder of the time I got to share with my new favorite college goalie. The coaches that are on the camp roster this summer, makes the camp's coaching staff one of the best in the country.
The small group settings will make for a welcoming and friendly environment for the players to have fun and get better. This summer there will be no better opportunity to inspire players to increase their passion for the game. They are guaranteed to see big improvement after spending 3 days in small group training with the best player/coaches in the world. There is no doubt that this will be the most anticipated Buku event to date. Our goal is to make this the most memorable lacrosse experience that your sons will ever get to experience in this great sport.
- Coach Johnny Rodriguez
On August 2nd-4th, some of the greatest players in the game will be in Santa Barbara coaching and interacting with the future generations of our sport. Players will be split up into divisions below and coached by current players with many years of experience (see below). The coaching staff includes Team USA, MLL, and D1 stars, as well as your favorite Pride/Buku coaches. All Coaches are listed below and are continuously updating. Goalies and face-offs studs will not be left out at this camp. Crease Coach and Faceoff Factory will be helping out with camp throughout every session of the week for those positions that require specialty training.
