Lorne Smith Lacrosse
Welcome to Lorne Smith Lacrosse! Since 2002 I have run my camps with the same basic philosophy. . . "Get Better, Have a Blast!" I teach campers of all ages to see the game the way that I see it—to recognize and take advantages of situations on both offense and defense, and to understand how the individual fits into the team.
I believe the game is at its best, and teams are at their best, when they are playing together in a free-flowing system that allows for individual creativity within the team concept. We also like to enjoy our surroundings at camp, finding time for the pool each afternoon at UO, and getting plenty of beach time at Lake Tahoe. Because like in life, balance is everything. Hope to see you this summer for a great week of lacrosse!
Lorne's combination of experience, knowledge, philosophy, organization, and passion for the game has earned him a reputation as one of the top camp directors in the country. In 2013 Lorne was inducted into the US Lacrosse Baltimore Chapter Hall of Fame, recognizing his on-field achievements and continued involvement in the game.
A unique and favorite aspect of Lorne's camps is the competition for the "Campionship" of each division. Teams accumulate points throughout the week for winning games and drills, and also for displaying great teamwork and sportsmanship. With five instructional sessions and six game sessions, we mix the competition found at team camps with the skill development of instructional camps into our own patented formula to give you the best camp experience possible.
On and off the field, our Code of Conduct is the basis for everything we do at camp. At the core, we are about HONOR, INTEGRITY, RESPECT, HUMILITY, and EXCELLENCE. Check out the video below to get a small glimpse of the LSL experience.
LSL University of Oregon
Wow LSL15 was hot in Eugene! The pool was a great addition to the daily schedule that we will continue into LSL16. Veteran campers will see we are back down to one session this year. There were some scheduling conflicts with track events on campus, so we are pushed back a bit this summer into just one week. LSL UO has become a melting pot of players from all over the West Coast. We typically see players from Washington, Portland, Bend, Eugene, Southern California, Idaho, and Northern California. As always, we will have a large contingent of UO players and coaches on staff, and it is the perfect opportunity for any players considering UO for their college choice to take a visit, meet the current team, and see the school.
LSL Lake Tahoe
Morning catches on the beach, crisp mountain air, amazing food, super-fun round robin single Campionship division competition, afternoon beach hang session, team bowling night. . . . These are just some of the things I love about LSL Lake Tahoe. And to top it off, our All-Stars will get to play two games on the last morning in the Lake Tahoe U19 Tournament! The fields are a 5-minute walk from the beach, and Sierra Nevada College provides the absolute best camp food you will ever have (and we have tried a lot of camp food over the years). This is truly an amazing week of lacrosse and fun. Also not a bad place for parents to come spend a week for some R&R!
