General

What type of staff will be at Harvest events?

We do not stress the importance of name recognitions within any Harvest events. We recruit our staff based on not only their knowledge and experience of the game but those who share the same Harvest vision. Our staff is skilled in their ability to present the material in a way that players can remember, retain and practice what they have learned. We will try and choose staff that comes from a variety of backgrounds so that they will be able to give real life examples of how they have used the Harvest Core Values in their lacrosse and personal life.

What if my son has special medical needs?

Please email us any special medical concerns to better prepare our staff. Ths includes information regarding medications or preventatives on hand.

What level of player attends Harvest events?

We teach players that are picking up the stick for the first time to those who play in college. By using our educational progression, we are able to cater to the needs of each individual camper. Beginners, intermediate and advanced players receive instruction that is appropriate for their skill level. Our heavy focus on fundamentals allows for us to appeal to all ages and skill levels.

Are Harvest events geared for specific positions or all positions?

We make sure to provide each position the attention it deserves. Each position has its own specific coach teaching them throughout the event.

Will there be special training for goalies?

Absolutely! Goalie training is integrated in the Harvest curriculum throughout the duration of our events. We have goalie specific coaches that coach our goalies at all of our events.

My child does not fall within the exact age range. Can they participate?

Our age groups are designed to maximize the development and safety of our participants. Contact us in advance with your request and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Camps & Clinics

Are parents allowed to visit and watch?

Absolutely!! We encourage family members to come to all Harvest events.

What is the weather cancellation policy?

For outdoor events, if there is a high chance of thunderstorm preceding the event, we will cancel the event by 5pm the day before and reschedule. Participants will be notified via email and a notification will be posted on our website. Once an outdoor event has begun, we will play through the rain. In the case of thunder or lightning, we will vacate the field for indoor safety.

What time should I arrive to an event?

Please arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled start time (30 minutes on the first day for check in) so you have time to gear up and are ready to go on time.

What is Harvest's cancelation policy?

The following cancellation policy of Harvest Lacrosse applies to all camps and clinics. Any communication regarding player absence or cancellation must be received in the form of a written email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

In the event that a player is unable to attend a camp/clinic, a full credit will be issued if a notice written via email is received within 7 days of the start of the camp/clinic. If the player’s absence is communicated in writing via email within less than 7 days before the start of the camp/clinic, regardless of the reason, a credit will be issued for 50% of the total amount paid. A cancellation made in writing via email within 3 days before a camp/clinic will result in a full forfeiture of funds paid and no credit will be issued. Harvest credits are to be used by the player within one year from the date issued. Credits are transferable to another immediate family member if the player who was issued the credit is unable to attend a future event. Camp/clinic refunds cannot be applied to club team membership fees. Neither refunds nor credits will be offered after the start of the camp or for players who arrive late or leave early. Phone calls or text messages are not accepted as notices of absence or withdrawal from a camp/clinic. Harvest will not provide cash refunds for any camps or clinics.

What is Harvest's policy in regards to bad weather?

In the event of rain, the event director will decide whether to stay outside or go to our indoor facility. We will immediately go inside due to lightning or severe weather.

What do I bring to an event?

It is the responsibility of each player to come to camp with appropriate gear and equipment (sticks, gloves, pads, mouth guard and helmet). Each player is required to wear his helmet at all times during drills, practices, scrimmages and games. We also highly recommend players bring a notepad and a writing utensil for the benefit of writing down information they learn throughout camp. It is up to each participant to bring a packed lunch. Lunch will NOT be provided by the camp unless specified otherwise. Make sure to bring enough water, as hydration is taken very seriously at our camps.

What is a typical day like?

Regardless of the type of the event, we use individual, small group, large group, and team dynamics to provide maximum instruction perspectives and opportunities. Harvest core values will be taught at every event.

Are there any event rules?

We do not tolerate the use of drugs or alcohol. We also do not allow physical abuse or property damage. Lastly, we do not allow any players to leave the camp or clinic. Breaking any of these rules warrants an immediate dismissal from camp without refund.

What type of gear will be given out during an event?

At all of our summer camps, participants receive a Harvest Lacrosse pinny. Our camp staff will also give out prizes at the end of camp for those players who demonstrate the principles of Harvest that are taught during camp.

Reschedule /Cancelation/ Injury Policies

To be considered for a reschedule of any session, we require a 72-hour notice, along with a written email to Harvest Lacrosse, stating the specific reason for the absence. Rescheduled sessions are not guaranteed, but we will do our best to find an open session throughout the course of the program. Should Harvest Lacrosse not appear for a scheduled session, participant will have the option to reschedule or receive a full refund for the missed session. If for whatever reason, a player were to sustain an injury outside of training, that would prevent the player from continuing his training sessions, our refund policy states:

  1. If Harvest is able to replace the injured player in the group, a full refund for the remaining sessions will be issued.
  2. If Harvest is unable to replace the injured player in the group, a partial refund for the remaining sessions will be issued.
