Lacrosse Masters and the tandem of Bowdoin College Head Coach, Jason Archbell and Washington & Lee University Head Coach, Gene McCabe are pleased to offer a small ground-breaking lacrosse camp. The Coach Archbell and Coach McCabe directed camp is what we call a "micro-camp". This camp will be limited to only 24 total players per graduation year. Our mission with each camp is to provide the world's best instruction and combine it with unprecedented exposure. No other camp in the world provides this type of close interaction and experience for a player. Nowhere will you find a camp which limits participants to a small number of players and provides exposure to the nation's best college coaches. Coach Archbell and Coach McCabe will direct this camp from start to finish – they will construct the curriculum and provide all coaching and instruction.
This camp is open to any player in the 2018 and 2020 graduation year.
In June of 2012, Jason Archbell was named head coach of the Bowdoin men's lacrosse program. In 2016, Archbell led the Polar Bears to a 12-5 record and third overall seed in the NESCAC tournament. Archbell's squad had five players recognized as All-NESCAC selections, including Rookie of the Year, while being named Coach of the Year for the 2016 season.
Archbell spent the previous two seasons as an assistant at Penn, where he served as a defensive assistant and recruiting coordinator. The Quakers enjoyed one of their finest seasons in 2011, posting an 8-7 mark and reaching the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2006. In 2012 Penn played one of the most difficult schedules in Division I and, despite a losing record, earned wins versus ranked North Carolina and Harvard.
He comes to Bowdoin with extensive Division III experience. A 2002 graduate of Hampden-Sydney, his coaching resume includes stops at Washington & Lee, Denison, Kenyon and Virginia Wesleyan.
Archbell played his college lacrosse at Hampden-Sydney College, captaining the squad his senior year. The Tigers made three NCAA Championship appearances and won the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) once during his career. Archbell was a two-time All-ODAC defenseman and earned honorable mention All-America as a senior.
Gene McCabe is in his 10th season as the head men’s lacrosse coach at Washington and Lee, having posted a 103-57 (.644) overall record across his first nine seasons, including a 16-5 overall record in 2013 when he led the Generals to the ODAC Championship game and to the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament.
McCabe graduated from Bates College in 1995 with a bachelor's degree in European history. At Bates, he lettered in both lacrosse and football. He and his wife Kristen have four daughters; Kaelan, Molly, Ava and Georgia.
