In such a short time, his confidence has increased, has a better understanding of the game, and has shown solid improvement overall.

12.23 Lacrosse Story

When Cezar Camba first created 12.23 Lacrosse, his intent was to create a Chicago-area lacrosse destination preferred by players, as well as parents and coaches. The vision was for a training facility focused on the whole player, with small group and individual programming to help bring out each player’s best.

As 12.23 Lacrosse has grown from a single Naperville training facility to include three training territories, plus TEAM 12.23, we continue to deliver the highest-quality service with respect and passion.

We think our efforts show in the way our players feel engaged and connected with our instructors and facility, and how they have succeeded on and off the field.

My 8 year old son had an interest in lacrosse and after his first private lesson he was eager to continue learning the game. He progressed quickly in the training series and is now looking forward to playing on a team.
