2016 True Midwest Prospect Camp



Today is your last chance to apply for a spot at the Midwest Prospect Camp

We invite players from grad years 2020 and 2021 to apply for this exclusive camp. Only 44 players from each class will be selected. We are doing this to keep the sessions small and to allow every player the opportunity to get the most focused instruction while working with our coaching staff of D1 college coaches.

Our coaching staff features six Division I college coaches from some of the top programs in the country. No other camp in the country can offer access to so many DI college coaches in one place. 

Under the direction of Jon Posner, head coach of the nationally ranked Culver Lacrosse program, the Midwest Prospect Camp will offer rigorous sessions each day on Culver's spectacular, state-of-the-art campus. When they aren't working hard on the field, players will enjoy team bonding activities by the lake, bonfires at night, and living together in the rustic cabins of Culver's Woodcraft Camp. 

If you are a player in grad years 2020 or 2021 and you're interested in getting the best education and experience from top college coaches, submit your application today for the True Midwest Prospect CampToday is your last day to apply
