Pro player and member of Team USA partners with ML8 Events for event in June

JW1 Lacrosse with professional lacrosse player Joe Walters and ML8 Events are pleased to announce the first annual JW1 Summer Training session for players in 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grades.

The event will take place June 26-29 at Calkins Road Middle School in Pittsford.

“We are going to combine the JW1 Boot Camps along with some scrimmage play to create a rounded out training session,” said Walters, Principal of JW1 Lacrosse. “We created two different offerings to provide every skill level player an opportunity to continue to develop their game.”

The training session will feature a number of local college players as the core of their staff.

“We have players from Virginia, Penn State, Michigan, Syracuse Cornell, Mercyhurst and Ohio State,” said Chelsea Henderson of ML8 Events, “ML8 has executed these camps before and guarantee a fun, supportive learning experience for all.”


JW1 Lacrosse has ramped up its training opportunities while the focus for Walter has been on his Team USA and his Major League Lacrosse career with the NY Lizards. This past January, they co-hosted a showcase event with ML8 Events that saw 25 college coaches and 200 players attend.
