Offense + Defense Challenge Camp

Because of the success of Coach Pilat's Goalie School, the first ever "Defenseman only" camp was started by Coach Pilat in 2000. This concept was so popular that the camp was filled by June for the next Summer!

This camp takes a limited number of Offensive players (Attack and Midfielders) and a select number of defensive players (Defenseman, LSMs and Short Stick Defensive Middies) and gives them individual instruction with poistion specific coaches and then brings them together to work on their skills and play fun games.

Futures Showcases
