HEADstrong Lacrosse Club Hosts N.J. & P.A. Summer Camp Series
The HEADstrong Lacrosse Club is excited to announce its 2019 Summer Camp Series, with three camps located in Swedesboro, N.J., Lower Township, N.J. and Lehigh, P.A. aimed toward any lacrosse player looking to elevate his or her game.
“Our Nick aspired to be an educator, coach, and counselor, and that burning desire to positively influence the community was only heightened during his battle with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma,” said Cheryl Colleluori, President of the HEADstrong Foundation and Nick’s mom.
“That was the driving force behind him inspiring athletes around the country with the HEADstrong Foundation. Our summer camp series is a tremendous way to share the invaluable lessons that he taught us both on and off the field. Our staff not only played at the highest levels, but like Nick, believe that giving back to the community is one of the most important things in life. These camps allow HEADstrong to help those who are dealing with the same hardships and realities of cancer that we went through with Nick.”

HEADstrong Lacrosse camps aim to elevate each athlete’s game, whether they’re new to the sport or more experienced. A 10-to-1 camper-to-counselor ratio gives players individualized attention and a higher amount of quality reps while also focusing on individual, group and team lacrosse skills in a positive, high energy atmosphere.
Players will learn the fundamentals of dodging, passing, catching, shooting, individual defense, goalie play and face-off technique. Athletes will also learn team offense, defense, riding, clearing and transition play. There will be appearances from current and former college and professional players, and campers will receive a limited edition HEADstrong tank top, HEADstrong shoelaces, a HEADstrong lanyard, and a HEADstrong sticker, with the opportunity to win even more prizes.
Proceeds from the camp will support the HEADstrong Foundation’s Nick’s House, a family home in Swarthmore, Pa., that provides complimentary lodging to families seeking cancer treatment in the region.
