The 2nd Annual King’s Court Lacrosse Camp took place yesterday.
The camp is run in honor of local lacrosse builder Gerry King, who died in 2013.

Gerry was also had a large role the TSN Kraft Celebration Tour Grant, which netted them $25 000.
The camp is run by Jordan Durston, whom plays professional Lacrosse for the Vancouver Stealth Lacrosse Club. Other notable mentors that are involved in the camp are Bronson Bea the captain of the Wallaceburg Red Devils, scoring machine Corey Lucier, and brick-wall goalies Brenner Jacobs, Lucas Jacobs, and CJ Gibson.
” It’s cool for the kids to come out and play lacrosse and learn in a fun environment,” Camp Direction Jamie Knight says, ” We want to make the kids learn without them realizing they are, we keep things stress-free and fun.”
The camp had 40 participants, all of which were able to do the camp at no cost to them. The age ranges from grades 1-6, but they all learn together as a team.
The camp features a radar gun to test shot speed, shooting targets, and many other skill orientated drills.
