The guys running a relatively new High School level team camp and tourney out in Denver are pumped about growing and improving their tournament. The venue is great (Dick’s Sporting Complex), for the older kids it’s a great opportunity to be seen by college coaches, and for the younger kids it’s good to learn to play teams from different areas of the country early on. From a convenience standpoint, it runs on a weekend adjacent to Vail, so parents should be excited about the opportunity to fit in two awesome tournaments back to back. The organizers feel this tournament has the potential to blow some of the east coast tourneys out of the water, and for the “western” lax community, it is a huge positive in terms of cost, travel, location, and reputation. All good stuff! Now let’s get to the details!!
This camp will be the premier team camp in the western US with legendary Coach Tierney and the Denver Pioneers lacrosse program running the event. After a tremendous inaugural year in 2010, this team camp is being set up to provide high school and club teams the chance to come out to beautiful Colorado, and be seen by college recruiters from Division I, II and III schools from all over the country. The camp is scheduled for the weekend right after the Vail Tournament, so teams and coaches can come out to Colorado for a great week of lacrosse!
