We relocated to Park City in 2012, and my son Vince, then a kindergartner, enrolled in Mike’s 212 Lacrosse summer training program. Over the past seven years, Vince has consistently participated each summer, transforming from an enthusiastic youngster to a highly skilled lacrosse player with an elevated Lax IQ, all under Mike’s tutelage. Mike’s approach to coaching is both candid and insightful, offering Vince constructive feedback that has been instrumental in taking his game to the next level.
As a lacrosse coach in Park City myself, what sets the 212 program apart is its exceptional value. In today’s landscape, with an overwhelming number of club teams and camps to choose from, parents often inquire about my recommendations. Before investing in travel club teams or expensive camps, it is essential that players develop strong technical stick skills and on-field awareness. The 212 program excels in these areas.
I frequently attend workouts each summer at Jeremy Ranch to observe Mike and his coaching staff’s methodology. The training sessions are both fun and intensive, emphasizing attention to detail and high repetition. This disciplined approach undoubtedly contributes to the players’ development, which becomes evident in games and tournaments as they mature.
It is exhilarating to witness the growth of my son and his teammates, many of whom have been with 212 Lacrosse since their early years. They are continuing Park City’s legacy of producing excellent high school and college lacrosse athletes. My heartfelt thanks to Mike and his team for their unwavering dedication, and I eagerly anticipate the exciting journey that lies ahead.
