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.

What our parents are saying

“1223 Lacrosse has been instrumental with the lacrosse development of my son. I have seen his skills and confidence grow incrementally in just a couple of months. He has increased his scoring percentage and passing accuracy during tournaments.”

Kat O,

“Coach Josh drives basic fundamentals, makes practices fun, interacts with the boys driving accountability for themselves, their teammates and Team 12.23. As a parent you can instantly tell the boys enjoy learning from his past experience.”

1223 is a one-stop destination for lacrosse training.  Being a coach, I appreciate the wide variety of sessions offered by 1223, from stick skills to LAX IQ to speed and agility.  The 1223 coaches are always seeking opportunities to increase skills by motivating players in constructive ways.  They understand the precise balance it takes to provide critical evaluation while encouraging development.

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.
