Summit Lacrosse Ventures (SLV) is very excited to announce an expanded partnership with Rhino Lacrosse, with sights set on becoming the #1 Lacrosse Camp operator in the country. In 2022, Rhino Lacrosse will offer approximately 30 camps across the country, launching several new additions alongside previous locations.
Rhino Lacrosse was founded in 2005 by professional lacrosse player and instructor, Ryan Powell. Ryan’s lacrosse accolades are unprecedented – 2010 captain of Team USA, World Champion, MLL/NLL All-Star and MVP, Syracuse University legend, National Champion player and coach – and since his years at Syracuse, Ryan has dedicated himself to becoming the world’s premiere lacrosse educator.
SLV has worked alongside Rhino for years in hosting the Saratoga Lacrosse Shootout and going forward will provide backend management and operational support for all Rhino Lacrosse Camps. Ryan will continue to lead the on-field product – the training, the coaching, the experience.
“Over the hundreds of camp experiences throughout my collegiate and post-collegiate days, and as a developing player attending camps, nothing compares to the product that Ryan Powell provides through Rhino Lacrosse Camps”, said Kevin Leveille, SLV’s Brand Manager and former Team USA Captain, UMass star, and 10+ year professional lacrosse player. “Rhino Camps are inviting, informative, fun, and unique…much like Ryan himself. Each time, I walk away with a new nugget to add to my game, and attending players certainly do too. Simply put, there is great value for all involved in Rhino camps.”
Rhino Lacrosse camps offer boys and girls of all ages and playing abilities the opportunity to receive the finest quality instructional experience, alongside exposure to an unparalleled love for the game of lacrosse. Ryan Powell handpicks elite-level staff from the game’s best players and instructors, enhancing campers’ knowledge, skills, and passion to become a top-notch player, both on and off the field.
“We are thrilled to align further with arguably the most prestigious and enduring brand in lacrosse”, said SLV CEO, Ashley Murphy. “Rhino Lacrosse uniquely combines passion, authenticity, hard work, knowledge, and fun, and I believe these values are exactly what the next generation needs to develop life and lacrosse skills. We look forward to combining Rhino and SLV efforts to offer the highest quality lacrosse experience nationally.”
Non-camp programs (tournaments, clinics, leagues, Snow Games) previously offered by Rhino Lacrosse will be transitioned to upstatelacrosse.com and registration will be available shortly. The Rhino USA National Team Experience will be held on this same platform under the name Powell USA.
