Kyle Smedley's Summary

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” -Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

National Director

Mad Dog Lacrosse

April 2013Present (1 year 7 months) La Jolla, CA

Mad Dog lacrosse was founded in the Summer of 2006 by former collegiate player and coach Bill Duerr. Creating Mad Dog summer lacrosse camps was Bill’s way of passing on his passion for the game to young players. That summer, Bill helped to assemble an unbelievable group of college lacrosse players from across the country. At the Sea Girt Army Camp, in Sea Girt, NJ these players gathered to help share their expertise with Mad Dog campers. The players demonstrated their skills, spoke about good habits, stressed teamwork and explained the importance of leadership development to the campers. Armed with an extensive skill set and knowledge of the game, the camp staff helped create a healthy, fun, and up-tempo learning environment where young budding lacrosse players could successfully hone their skills. Now the Mad Dog lacrosse tradition continues with Bill’s younger brother, Tom Duerr. Since 2010, Mad Dog has expanded its summer camps across the country to NJ, PA, CT, CA and NH as well as adding clinics and travel teams.

“Mad Dog Lacrosse provides a world-class, hand-picked staff to create the perfect experience for players of any age and skill level. Founded on the fundamentals, the Mad Dog experience embraces a positive, high-energy approach to the game, and aims to share the passion of the game of lacrosse. Campers of all ages and skill levels will receive instruction from coaches that possess the knowledge and tools from the highest levels of lacrosse.” - Tom Duerr, Executive Director at Mad Dog Lacrosse
