10X Lacrosse Camps

Defensive Camp

Dear Austin Lacrosse Community. We're excited to bring down Team USA Kyle Hartzell and the Defense Academy! This exclusive and focused camp with sessions for HIGH SCHOOL and Youth Grades 5-8th. The camp is focused on Lacrosse Defenders, LSMs and Middies wanting to hone in Defense Skills with one of the best defenders in the MLL and team USA Lacrosse.

D-Week Summary: A four-day defensive training camp developed by world-class defenders Kyle Hartzell and Tucker Durkin. The camp features daily 1.5 hour sessions of group instructional work. Our philosophy is simple: world-class instruction from the best defenders in the world. Each session will be unique, with drills focusing on:

  • On Ball Defense 
  • Off-Ball Positioning/Sliding Technique 
  • Skill-work with Ball & Off Ground 
  • Defensive IQ
  • Stick Work
  • Shooting
Whether the goal is Division I lacrosse - or just personal improvement - D-Week will accelerate learning and provide players with the tools to continue growing beyond camp. Note - this event will be hosted by Kyle Hartzell
Groups: D-Week will feature two groups: Youth (5th-8th) and High-School (9th-12th). Each group will be capped at 20 players, allowing Kyle and our staff to evaluate each player at an individual level. Camp sessions will skew to relatively more advanced techniques for the high-school group; players with at least one season of experience will be welcome in both age groups, regardless of skill.  
Evaluations: Each player will receive written scorecards and notes for improvement at the end of the camp - providing tangible feedback on areas that need work - and detailed instruction on how to improve in those areas.
Where: Hudson Bend Middle School - Grass practice field - 15600 Lariat Trail, Austin, Texas 78734 
When: Monday, July 30th through Thursday, August 2nd - Youth 9:00AM - 10:30AM | High School 10:30AM - 12:00PM
Who: Boys with at least one year of playing experience. D-Week training sessions are designed to help players of all skill levels improve, so don't worry about skill gaps or potential inexperience. We all share the common goal of improvement - regardless of our skill level today.
Questions: Email   with any questions. We understand you have options with lacrosse training, and we want you to be comfortable with whichever route you choose - especially ours.
