Stealth forward and Academy Director Lewis Ratcliff leads an all-star cast of coaches at the Stealth Lacrosse Academy this summer.
The Washington Stealth has announced a full slate of Stealth Lacrosse Academy activities that will be taking place throughout the summer. Local youth lacrosse players of all ages and skill levels will be able to take part in two three-day training camps, all coached by Stealth All-Pro forward Lewis Ratcliff and some of the world’s best lacrosse players.
The Stealth Lacrosse Academy began in the Fall of 2010 with the goal of teaching area youth, who predominately play field lacrosse, the game of box lacrosse. The Academy has seen substantial growth in its short existence, reaching out to youth and high school lacrosse players throughout Western Washington and British Columbia. Ratcliff, the Academy Director, leads the box lacrosse instruction with the help of numerous Stealth teammates and coaches.
“The best lacrosse players in the world play both box and field lacrosse,” said Ratcliff. “There are so many skills that players learn in box that translate to the field game and we aim to give kids new skills and knowledge that they can use no matter where they play. The Academy gives players another opportunity to have their stick in their hands in a competitive environment and introduce some new faces to box lacrosse.”
The Stealth Lacrosse Academy’s summer season will boast two three-day summer camps at the Comcast Arena at Everett. The first is June 26-28 and the second is August 27-29. At both camps, Ratcliff and his team of coaches will cover all aspects of the game from shooting and passing to offensive and defensive strategy, and everything in between. Players of all ages and skill levels are welcome; the three-day immersion camp costs just $225.
The Stealth Lacrosse Academy is the best way for aspiring lacrosse players to take their game to the next level this summer. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today.
