Frequently Asked Questions

How are players grouped during training?
Players are grouped according to ability in groups no bigger than 8 students and one staff coach. When the campers arrive at camp initially, they will be placed into groups consisting of other students their age. From there, the staff will evaluate the talent of each individual and adjust the groups according to ability.

What equipment do I need to bring to camp?
All campers will be required to bring the necessary equipment required to play in a real game: Stick, helmet, mouthpiece, shoulder pads, gloves, elbow pads, proper footwear (sneakers and cleats are both advised) and a cup (jock strap) is recommended.

How old do the campers need to be?
Rising Stars Lacrosse Camp is for boys ages 5-16. With the continued growth of lacrosse in this area, we have expanded camp to as young as 5 years old with our 9am - 3pm youth option.

Can I contact my son while he is at camp?
Throughout the duration of the camp, Rising Stars Lacrosse employs a camp administrator. The administrator will carry a cell phone and is on-site 24 hours a day. Please call 508-340-1421.

What do I need to bring to an overnight camp?
In addition to equipment, campers need to bring bedding, change of clothes for 5 days, extra socks, towels, toiletries, fan (optional) and spending money for snacks and camp store (meals are provided in the camp fee and ALL CASH CAN BE HELD AT THE CAMP STORE and unspent cash is returned at end of camp, this prevents campers from loosing money throughout the week).

What type of facilities does the camp offer?
The camp will be based out of Worcester State University; utilizing their dining facilities, lecture halls, air conditioned dormitories and newly rennovated Field Turf Stadium and adjacent grass fields.
