Lacrosse Experience

Expect to play against men's teams throughout the duration of the trip. The coaching staff will have high expectations and hold our players accountable to help prepare recent high school graduates for the mental grind of college fall ball and to keep current college players sharp. Playing time will be even during the scrimmages in London but man up/man down units may be utilized for the Lowlands Tournament. Players will receive a very small playbook to review in advance of the trip. The playbook will be adjusted as needed during the tournament.

Eligible Players

Current high school seniors through current college seniors

  • Although the drinking rules are different overseas, athletes who are under the age of 21 and cannot manage this freedom will forfeit the remainder of the trip and be dropped off at the airport, this trip is first about experience different cultures and then about playing lacrosse but it is not an excuse to drink
