Goalie camps and position-specific training
LXTC Lacrosse receives many inquiries about goalie-specific camps and training. In 2016, Trevor Tierney and Ryan LaPlante created the Goalie Evolution Academy to provide high-end training for aspiring goalies. The Goalie Evolution Academy is held quarterly and spans 10 sessions in each program.
The Goalie Evolution Academy sells out quickly because available spaces are limited to 20 goalies. Cost is $1495 per program.

If you do not see the Goalie Evolution Academy listed there, then registration is not available at this time.
We also encourage players looking for specific training at goalie or any other position (attack, midfield, defense) to register for one of our DU Lacrosse summer camps.
Registration and info can be found here: DU Summer Camps
Our summer camps will include position-specific training during the morning sessions each day. LXTC Lacrosse Director Trevor Tierney often works closely with goalies at these camps, who will also be coached by former and current DU Lacrosse goalies. Trevor is considered one of the greatest goalies in lacrosse history, and training goalies is his passion. Players looking for goalie-specific training will benefit greatly from the instruction at our summer camps.
Summer Camp Dining & Food Allergy Info
The dining halls for our summer camps at the University of Denver and the University of Colorado provide a wide variety of food options for campers. Both dining halls are well-versed in dealing with food allergy issues.

CU Dining Hall info: https://living.colorado.edu/dining/menus Click on Center for Community (C4C) for the appropriate menu.
CU was named one of the "Top 10 Gluten-Free Accommodating Colleges of 2014": https://dining.uga.edu/node/356
DU Summer Camp Medical Questions
Our DU Summer Camps have a certified medical trainer on hand at all times.
Our trainers are well-equipped to provide for players with medical issues, including supervision of medications. We can store medications for you as well.
Parents will have the opportunity to speak with a trainer at the time of camp check-in to discuss any medical concerns involving a camper.
How many roommates per room at summer camp?
This is the aspect of camp that causes everyone the most stress on the first day. What everyone needs to understand is that we do our best to accommodate your requests, but the process is not perfect because some kids request roommates who request to be with someone else.
We need everyone to stay relaxed about this during check-in and everything will work out great!
We will assign 2 roommates per room at summer camp. We will not assign 3 roommates per room, as dorm rooms are not designed to accommodate that situation. Players will have plenty of opportunities to spend time with friends even if they are not assigned to room together.
How are players supervised at our summer camps?
During our summer camps, players are closely supervised at every moment of the day, which is itself tightly scheduled. They are never permitted free reign to "run around campus."
We have a high coach to player ratio, and multiple coaches are stationed on each floor of the dorms where overnight players reside. Players are grouped on floors by approximate age. We do not group significantly older players with younger players.
With 3 sessions of lacrosse per day, most campers are frankly too tired to cause any trouble. We have been running these camps for many years and maintain a high level of discipline among campers.
Please note that current 4th graders are not permitted to register as overnight campers, they may be registered only as day campers. Parents should use their best judgment when registering 5th graders to determine whether those players are better suited as day or overnight campers.
With our years of experience running these camps, we will insure that campers are safe, secure, and have a great time playing lacrosse with us!
After you register and pay for summer camp, you will receive a confirmation email. Read that email carefully, as it contains the link to request a roommate online. We do not take emailed roommate requests, you must complete the online roommate request link included in your confirmation email.

Is transportation available from the airport to camp ?
LXTC Lacrosse does not provide transportation between the airport and any given camp at DU or CU.
Parents are responsible for securing transportation to and from camp on a door-to-door basis at the DU or CU residence halls where check-in and check-out occurs.
SuperShuttle and Denver Platinum Limo are two options commonly used by parents to secure transportation from DIA to DU or CU.
How do I transport a longpole to camp ?
Commonly, players have used a ski bag to transport longpoles for air travel.
You can also take the head off the pole, pack that in your luggage or carry it on, and then use a cardboard or plastic tube of your own making to transport the shaft.
This can be a good idea in the event that the airline misplaces the shaft, at least the player will still have his familiar head and then we can figure out a replacement shaft for him when he arrives at camp.
Denver Elite Club Team Weather Policy
Lacrosse is a cold weather sport, commonly played in difficult conditions. In general, we would not cancel practices unless there is snow, lightning, unplayable fields, or an extreme weather situation.
If we do cancel a Denver Elite practice, we will notify you by email at least 2 hours before the practice was scheduled to start. Therefore we strongly recommend that you add
and LXTC Lacrosse to your email program as Safe Senders, to insure that our emails are not diverted to spam folders.
Parents should insure that your son is adequately dressed when there's inclement weather, in sweatpants, long-sleeve compression-type shirt under his pads, and perhaps a sweatshirt. A warm player is a more effective player.
