Syracuse University Lacrosse Greats Come to Florida for O2 Camp

Written by Lee Roggenburg on . Posted in .
LB3 Lacrosse will be hosting the inaugural Orlando Orange Camp (O2) this winter from January 2 thru January 4, 2013 in sunny Orlando, FL.  This three day advanced instructional camp will feature a trio of Syracuse University’s biggest lacrosse stars from the past decade as well as one of the all-time greats to ever play the sport of lacrosse. John Galloway, currently the starting goalie for the Rochester Rattlers of the MLL, will lead all goalie training.  While at Syracuse University, Galloway was a two-time first team All American, a two-time Goalie of the Year and a two time Division 1 National Champion.  He is currently an assistant coach at Providence University. Joel White, currently playing for the Rochester Rattlers of the MLL and the Rochester Knighthawks of the NLL, will lead all defensive training.  While at Syracuse University, White was a three-time All American, a two-time National Champion and the first long pole ever named Midfielder of the Year. Josh Amidon, currently playing midfield for the Charlotte Hounds of the MLL, also won two National Championships while at Syracuse Univeristy.  Amidon was recently named LB3’s program director for their St Louis operation.  Amidon will lead all midfield instruction at O2 camp. The lacrosse legend, John Zulberti (Z), will bring his 35+ years of playing and coaching experience to O2 camp as the lead instructor for the attack.  Z was a four-time All American and two-time National Champion while at Syracuse University and is considered one of the best ever to play the attack position. Liam Banks and Brian Silcott developed O2 and will be the Directors of the camp.  Silcott believes he and Banks have an innovative and unique curriculum set for this camp that was specifically constructed to benefit the more experienced, college bound player.  “It seems like good high school players don’t really want to do camps anymore” says Silcott “When I look at what goes on at many of the camps I don’t blame them.  We think more experienced players need higher reps and higher intensity than the average camp offers and that is what we plan to bring to the O2 camp in January.” Banks says he understands that high school players want to get in front of college coaches but he believes preparing for those key opportunities is more important than the event itself.  “You have to get the reps, you have to get the stick dialed in, you have to master your craft.” explains Banks. “I know every player ultimately wants to do well in recruiting events, we want to provide some already talented kids with the opportunity to tighten up their game and learn something new from several of the best in our sport.” Banks says there will be players coming from several states to participate in O2 Camp and LB3 has set up a deal with the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort for those requiring overnight accommodations.  You can find more information about the camp specifics at
