IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adopted a modified travel program for the summer. We feel it is in the best interest of our families to continue with a contained program locally, where we can control population sizes, curriculum, and competition following all local and state guidelines. Travel will be limited to a single event later in the summer with our Middle School and High School teams only. We have also started the process of looking to fall 
opportunities, to provide our competitive teams the chance to play outside competition, but want to make sure safety is held to the highest regard in our decision making.

Thank you for your understanding and support. 


Tournaments and Travel

There are a number of factors that go into the tournament selection each Summer, but the overarching theme is a great experience for our families, and great opportunities for our players.


We look at locations that:
-Can minimize travel time and cost
-Are close proximity to an amusement park or weekend getaway
-Take you into a lacrosse hotbed

We look at dates that:
-Give you the Fourth of July with your family
-Give adequate downtime following the Spring season
-Give enough time before Summer ends and school begins for time with family

We look for competition that:
-Pushes the oldest groups (MS and HS) out of their comfort zone
-Opens the eyes of younger ages (12U), and encourages them to stretch their development goals
-Encourages the youngest ages (10U) to have fun and foster the love for the sport 

We look for hosts that:
-Are well organized leading up to, during and following the events
-Are reputable and established
-Have quality communication and availability
