 The Path to the Blue Chip!!

The BLUE CHIP PREP program is an advanced skills program for players in graduating classes of 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 that are committed to playing lacrosse at a higher level. The BLUE CHIP PREP box/field training program provides the serious middle school lacrosse player with the best of both box and field lacrosse training that improves overall stick skills, lacrosse IQ, and increases the players' knowledge of moves. These players have the hopes and visions of playing lacrosse at the collegiate level or simply want to excel at the game. Coach Jim Davis coached at the 3d Blue Chip camp that provides players with the tools required to advance to the 3d Blue Chip Camp. The players in the Boneyard Blue Chip Prep program will have the opportunity to receive an invite from Coach Davis to the 3d Blue Chip Feeder Camp in Florida in January 2016.

The 3d Blue Chip Feeder Camp provides players from all over the country with the chance to showcase their skills. Using the nationwide network of school and club coaches that former NCAA Division I coaches Jamie Munro and Jake Reed have established over the last thirty years, 3d Blue Chip will scout out and invite the top 120 players in grades 8, 9, and 10 from each of five regions of the country: New England, Mid-Atlantic, South, Midwest, and West. At each 3d Blue Chip camp these players will compete in a game-based camp format for a chance to be invited to Jake Reed’s Nike Blue Chip Lacrosse Camp. From the five regional camps, the best 120 players at each grade level will be invited to Nike Blue Chip Lacrosse Camp

The Nike Blue Chip Lacrosse Camp, where the nation’s elite high school lacrosse players get the opportunity to showcase their skills in front of nearly every NCAA Division I coach in the nation. With over 90% of the players earning a spot on an NCAA Division I team, Nike Blue Chip Lacrosse Camp is the number one way to reach the pinnacle of college lacrosse. Competition among those personally invited by Camp Director Jake Reed ensures the highest caliber of play throughout the camp, and the ideal chance for players to see how they stack up against the nation’s best.
