When researching lacrosse camps Washington DC parents trust, make sure that the camp you decide on is up-to-date on all the national rules and regulations in order to ensure that your child is not only being trained in the sport correctly, but also in the safety way possible. Here at Performance Sport Systems, we carefully follow the rules put in place by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). Last year, NFHS issued major changes in lacrosse regulations, so any of the lacrosse camps Washington DC offers that you visit as a possible facility for your child should be abiding by the new regulations. If you have a son that wants to attend lacrosse camp, then the camp should be following these rules:
