Camp is completely SOLD OUT
Lacrosse Masters and Cornell University Head Coach, Jenny Graap are pleased to offer a small ground-breaking lacrosse camp. This Coach Graap directed camp is what we call a "micro-camp", which will be limited to only 36 total players. Our mission with this 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 and provides exposure to the nation's best college coaches. Coach Graap will direct this camp from start to finish – she will construct the curriculum and provide all coaching and instruction for the duration of the camp.
Margaret Corzel, Assistant Coach at Cornell University will join Coach Graap.
Jenny Graap returned to her alma mater in 1997 with one goal in mind: to build the Cornell women’s lacrosse team into a championship contender. Now entering her 20th year at the helm in 2016-17, Graap has been honored as the the 2002 Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association Coach of the Year, the 2006 Inside Lacrosse Magazine Northeast Coach of the Year, and a three-time IWLCA Northeast Coach of the Year (2002, 2006, 2016), while developing the Big Red women’s lacrosse program into one of the most successful in the nation.
Graap has built an Ivy League and national title contender in her first 19 years. She has posted a 180-120 record at Cornell and a 201-164 mark in 22 years as a head coach. She reached her 200th career win in dramatic fashion, defeating Penn, 11-10, on May 8, 2016, to win the Big Red's first-ever Ivy League Tournament Championship and earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
A 1986 graduate of Cornell’s College of Human Ecology, Graap was an assistant women’s lacrosse coach at Penn State from 1990-93 while completing a master’s degree in exercise and sport science. During her time with the Nittany Lions, they made three NCAA tournament appearances. Graap was also a field hockey and lacrosse intern at William Smith College from 1989-90. She received her first coaching experience as the head lacrosse mentor at the Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child in Summit, N.J., in 1989.
A native of West Chester, Pa., Graap attended East High School, where she lettered three times in basketball and played on the state runner-up field hockey team, in addition to the undefeated Chesmont lacrosse championship squad.
Graap and her husband, Dan Allen, reside in Ithaca.
