39. Coach Ulehla and Coach Valore's camp philosophy
We have developed our Wolverine Lacrosse Camps in a way that will build upon and improve a player's fundamental skills, while introducing new concepts and techniques in order to elevate a player's game to the next level. Our philosophy is that one should not only walk away from camp an improved lacrosse player, but also having had an enjoyable time while developing their game. With an approachable and knowledgeable staff, Wolverine Lacrosse Camps are a fun and friendly environment, conducive to learning new things, establishing new friendships and creating new memories. Wolverine Lacrosse Camps are also a great way to experience what the University of Michigan and the women's lacrosse program is all about!
38. Coach Ulehla and Coach Valore's favorite camp moment of all-time
My favorite recent camp memory was the opportunity for us, as a coaching staff, to see our future Team One come together as a team for the first time last summer during our first official Wolverine Lacrosse Camp. Nothing made me happier than to see the smiles on their faces as they started to develop friendships that will last a lifetime and bonds that will only be strengthened during their four years at Michigan. Their excitement for what's to come was contagious and truly energized us as we went into the last year of preparing this program to enter its first season.
My favorite memory of attending lacrosse camps while growing up was the opportunity to meet new people and create new relationships through playing the game I loved. It was really neat to attend camp as a young player unaware that some of the people I met and friendships I made would end up being teammates or girls I played against in college. It was fun to sit around and tell the story of "remember at camp when..." years later.
