Feedback from 2016:



I cannot express how great of an event the Dixie 200 was for all of our parents and players from Georgia. Top to bottom, this is one of the best events for any young lacrosse player who wants to learn more about the game.  

The coaching staff was top notch and not just because of their knowledge, but the way they interacted and bonded with all of the players. Many lacrosse events seem to forget that parents are just as interested and excited as the kids are to meet the coaches. The event was intimate enough for the coaches to include the parents and answer questions they had.

The entire event was very well run and facilities were perfect with the fields very close. I thought it was great to have the games on Sat night played at MB because it made it very special.

I am very thankful you included me in this event and I look forward to the years to come.




It's a super event for kids in the southeast.  Nice to see the instructional component at any camp.  



XXX really enjoyed it. He learns so much at Dixie. Thanks for letting him be a part of that!

Always well run, organized, professional. 

Thanks again



Thank you for inviting us!

The event I thought was very well organized and kept them moving and learning. 

I don't think "recruiting" was our big take-away, but in an environment as such, we really walked away with what we need to do to get better. 



Thanks  for all you do to make this event such a success!  XXX has enjoyed it both years and I enjoyed the format as well.  This year the coaches seemed even more engaged during the games and it was great seeing them offer real time feedback.  I think you guys made a great event last year even better this year! 

Thanks so much!




From start to finish, this was an outstanding experience for XXX and  for me as well. XXX did a similar event- UNC's Freshmen/Sophomore Select back in January- but what set the Dixie Top 200 apart was the more personal aspect of it- the coaches working with the boys between drills, during the game, after the whistle blew. I appreciated how the coaching staff  included the parents and were accessible. 

Starting with the coaching staff, this was impressive group of coaches from a wide variety of colleges and college divisions. My son learned new techniques and ideas during the skill sessions. Having the coaches on the field during the games, providing that immediate feedback, helped focus on how to implement those concepts right then, not later. 

The guidance, advice, life lessons that the coaches shared make such a big impact, coming from men who the boys respect and admire. 

Even myself -after attending 4 or 5 recruiting talks at these type of events- I learned some new things at the recruitment talk by Coach Myers and Coach Conry.

And I have also have to compliment SpringHill Suites which was gracious enough to allow us to check out late before our four hour drive home! 

It was an outstanding weekend, worth every bit the time and money. I wish you continued success with doing this again in the future! 

Kind regards,


Candidly, I was, before the event, skeptical.  XXX has been to so many similar events that were not too beneficial. 

This was a good event:

·         Great, professional coaching; best I’ve ever seen at an event like this.  I was really pleased with the quality of the coaches doing the teaching and the quality of the teaching.  Nick Meyers was particularly good.

·         A good number of coaches from a range of schools (D1 to D3; locations; size; etc.).  Also, there were more coaches than I thought would attend.

·         Pretty decent talent level.  Again, candidly, I did not expect to see this level of talent from these two states.

·         Including lunch for the boys was a nice touch.  It kept them at the field with one another.  

Straight shootin’:

·         XXX team briefly had 3 goalies on Saturday night.  That was disappointing, but was fixed before Sunday.

Thank you



Btw. I can't speak highly enough about the Dixie top 200. We will be waiting for sign ups this year.

Congrats on win against XXX.
