FAQ

WHO ARE YOUR STAFF/COACHES?

NLSLA has an unparalleled coach to camper ratio of 3.5 to 1. Our staff includes current and former collegiate athletes, captains, and coaches. Many have played beyond college at a professional or semi-professional level. Each session, campers can also expect visits from specialists in college admissions, leadership, and speed and agility training.

WHAT IS THE LEVEL OF COMPETITION?

All student-athletes should be highly interested in getting to the Next Level.

Campers appreciate our program because of the unique level of individual attention. With a maximum of 30 athletes and minimum of 4 coaches in each sport session, as well as a personally-assigned mentor to lead them throughout their session, the boys will never be short of feedback, leadership, and supervision. Finally, our staff and college counselors provide valuable insight into recruiting strategies and the overall college process.

IT’S HOT IN THE SUMMER. HOW IS HYDRATION MONITORED?

Upon arrival, each camper is given a one-gallon water jug labeled with his name. Every day, athletes are expected to drink at least one full gallon of water. Watering stations are set up around campus, and coaches frequently ask campers, “Have you finished your gallon today?”

Teaching and enforcing sound values and making smart choices is part of every aspect of camp. Not a minute goes by without attention to building solid character as we incorporate values such as good sportsmanship, teamwork, spirit, effort, leadership and persistence.  Most importantly, we create an environment where campers learn to feel GOOD about demonstrating positive values.
Where will my son be spending his nights?

Campers will stay in clean and comfortable dorms that are equipped with bathrooms and showers on each floor. Each camper is grouped by age. All of the counselors live in the dorms with the campers and are assigned to a group of campers for which that they are responsible.
